Stormed over as an evacuee of the nasty Suites Costa Blanca next door... Salvador made my angry transition easy and painless and let me inspect rooms prior to deciding. This hotel is an old Mayan style building that used to be a hotel, so many if not all rooms DO NOT HAVE WINDOWS. The hotel was bought by people in... More

The rooms are very big. Huge shower and our room had a huge spa bath (not sure if they all do) Very close to everything. Downstairs you can book all your tours or even hire a scooter. It is very safe to leave your scooter outside the hotel. 24/7 7-eleven type of shop. Mall is 1 minute walk and the... More

I really like the style of the hotel which is turning a mall to a hotel. Rooms were pretty clean. Salvador who is in the front desk is a really helpful guy and he likes to help the guests with all their needs. Another great thing is the 24/7 free coffee and tea. I like mayafair.

We checked out after 2 extremely unpleasant nights here and moved to a proper hotel. If you book this through reputable hotel sites you'll be told there is a hot tub, a bar, a cafe, beach access and modern rooms. That's all complete rubbish! The premises is a converted shopping mall where half the rooms are hostel rooms and half... More

This is only a bed. Some rooms are remodel and are better than others. It seems that the 3rd floor is more updated. First floor smells horrible. We were a large group so I got a chance to see more rooms on different floors. This is a old mall that is in the process of converting to a hotel but... More

Stayed there only for one night. A night way too long... The room is tiny and so is the so called kingsize-bed (which is rather a small queensize). No window and absolutely no privacy as the restroom is seperated only by a small showercurtain from the rest of the room. My friend and i felt like in a prison! Loud... More
