The hotel itself was really nice on first impressions however the rooms were full of ants and the patio was filthy, rooms were not cleaned properly. Staff only looking for wrist bands rather then greeting you in the food hall or only friendly to other Spanish people. Definitely not a 4 star. Food absolutely disgusting. Check in was a nightmare with a new starter who could not talk English and location is a steep 15 minute walk down to the beach.

March 2020. The staff were helpful and professional. The accommodation was spacious with an open view from a large terrace. There was only one restaurant available but the breakfast was very good if you like to eat a lot. The indoor pool was not included in the price and charged 10 euro per hour. I chose this apartment/hotel because it stated it had a gym and indoor pool. The gym is very poorly equipped with not even a rower or multi gym. Unfortunately at this time of year little is open on site and the property is not near to supermarkets or restaurants. Fortunately there is a reasonably priced bus service but after plenty of walking we did not relish the very steep climb to get back up to the property. I am sure this is a good place in the summer for families who want to stay put.

We are currently here for 7days. We came in a quiet season (March 2020) for a week, so there isn’t much to do. Seems like everything is shut down because it’s still quiet. The only activities we could do is play in the arcade but it’s an additional cost which sucks. Coming here when it’s quiet, means you should go all-inclusive because there is nothing around in walking distance. You need transportation if you want to go anywhere (UBER works out much cheaper than regular taxis). The all-inclusive option only benefits when it comes to meals but still the options are a bit limited. There is nothing else to do! The spa prices are sooooo ridiculous and definitely it worth the penny. You can’t even access the indoor pool unless you pay €10 an hr (like who does that). So if you are an active person, don’t come here during “Winter”. If you need peace, then it definitely helps you relax because all I did was eat, chill in the jacuzzi and sleep (REPEAT). Summer time here, will most probably be a whole different experience all together. The hotel is big and beautiful to look at and feels like a luxury. Going all-inclusive really didn’t help me. There isn’t the basic tea & coffee in the rooms like normal hotels. The TV in the room only had 5 channels and they were all Spanish which definitely made no sense for me to watch. So entertainment really sucked here. Anything interesting you can do involves spending € when I already invested so much on this holiday. Hotel has great potential.
