Good enough Hotel and a couple of friendly staff but not all bar far. The food was pretty good but a strange mixture to say the least. The evening's entertainment was purely geared up for the Spanish and if you are anything other, I would suggest an early night or leave the Hotel for some life. Pool on roof was...

The receptionist who spoke little English was really nice and got us all into bigger rooms with a balcony. Not much of a view but better than what we began with....

Caters 100% for the spanish and although I have nothing against pensioners, the spanish one's are the most ignorant selfish people on this planet. They wold just push anyone out of the way...

Arrived Sept 30th, check in a bit fraught as there was a cleaner in charge of the front desk and she was really rude!! When the real receptionaist arrived, he was very helpful and efficient. All staff are really nice here, even though english visitors are far outnumbered by spanish. If you can't cope with lots of spanish people around...
