Great hotel with excellent staff

Pros: Ideal for families or couples as there are adult only areas. Food and drink excellent.
Cons: Think they need more staff during busy periods.
Location: Great location, Marina Rubicon only a short walk away.
Stayed here from 25th Oct 17 for 9 nights with my wife and 9yr old son who had a fantastic time. The staff were all fantastic. Food and drink excellent for the price. I wouldn't rate it a five star as it is in need of a refurb in some areas but overall excellent value. Rooms are huge and cleaned every day. Would definitely stay here again.

in quiet location

Pros: the adult pool areas were nice and quiet
Cons: most things
Location: quiet location, marina about twenty minute walk (small market twice weekly) 40/50 minute walk to playa blanca centre. 30 minutes to nice beach.
classed as five star hotel. more like a3 to 4 star hotel. some areas not cleaned daily, food variety good but not up to 5star standard. some staff need to be retrained on customer relations, but majority were pleasant and helpful. a hotel for families only i would suggest, although there are areas for adults only, very noisy especially at meal times. the entertainment is child based so at times the artists were amateurish.

A frequent quest here noticing changes!

Pros: Adult areas, gym, staff
Cons: Maintenance of gym equipment, more and bigger adult only areas for relaxing and dinning.
Location: Run, walk to beach
This is a great hotel to chill out and escape. I have stayed there on a number of occasions with various parts of my family. The hotel has made various changes over the years and has maintained its high standards. Having been there twice this year I have noticed some changes. The hotel has tried to create an adult only section, pool dinning and it has not got this quite right as yet. The pool area for adults is now crowded and there needs to more space devoted to adults only, this is defiantly apparent when it come to dinning, there are only about 12 tables out of over 100. As much as I like children I have had mine and when you are dinning as a couple and there are children crying and screaming at 9:30pm who appeared overtired, they ruin meal times for couples. Consideration should be given to a time where children should be admitted. The new gym is a vast improvement on the previous location but to maintain a particular standard and safety level the equipment should be serviced eg. the spin bikes appear to have had no service in 6 years and the seats and handle bars are rusted into an unmovable position and make a constant noise where they cry out for oiling! They are now almost un-useable which is a shame. The other slight change over this year is the cut back on the food that is used in the buffet, there are mow less salad items and less joints at the carvery. Having said all this it is a place that I will return but keeping a watchful eye.

Couple's break

Pros: Large rooms with great adult's only pool area.
Cons: Waiting time in restaurant for freshly cooked meat and fish
Location: Only 15/20 minute walk into Playa Blanca with plenty of bars and restaurants
Lovely hotel and staff are great but not ideal for a couple's holiday. Great for a family holiday but far too many children for our liking - don't expect a nice peaceful break.
