The hotel is one of the few around Maspalomas (San Augustin) that actually lies on the beach. Most of the others might be close to the water but the beaches are far. So this one has a very good location. The beach itself is very good too, not too crowded but well maintained. You need a key to get in...

Stayed in this classic hotel beguinning August 2012. We got a room with a fantastic view over the sea! This was the big plus of our stay in the hotel.

Stayed here in Jan. 2012 and loved so much went back in March. The hotel is perfectly located right on the beach (dark sand) and near local bars/restaurants. San Agustin is an attractive town, quiet but with enough eating places & it is a quick taxi ride to busier resorts. The hotel is classic in style, a bit dated decor-wise...
