The shower and bathroom sink were inside the room itself. No seperate room for the shower in a 3 person room, ridiculuce.
Good condition of room nice and clean
Location on the beach and 2 minutes to shops, restaurants and bars.
Room shower though excellent needs a towel at base of shower door to stop water entering bedroom.
The food was excellent and choice of soya milk and gluten-free dishes.
The desk of the reception was dated and the floor by the entrance had couple of broken tiles but I've heard it's going to be redecorated this winter.
The hotel is directly on the beach and also has a lovely roof top pool with a variety of sun beds and loungers. The bar/food service directly to your bed is excellent - the baguettes are enormous and one order could easily feed two happily for lunch. The bathrooms are modern with powerful showers - very nice. Rooms cleaned and towels changed daily if you needed it. Breakfast has wide selection of food, fruit, cheese, ham, cakes as well as freshly cooked options available. The supermarket is literally around the corner and the rooms do have a small fridge which is handy. No kettle or tea/ coffee making facilities - although I did ask and was given a kettle. Hotel is in fantastic location - the main resort 'strip' with lots of bars, restaurants and shops is within 5 min walking distance. The hotel also offers massages and treatments, on a rainy day I had a 50 min reflexology session which was awesome!
Breakfast was manic, the 'queue' for tea and coffee was ridiculous - mainly because of the layout - tiny space in between tables of food causing congestion. Just needs more thought on where to put things in relatively small space. I opted to have breakfast in my room - not relaxing at all in the communal area. Some of the staff were jaded and off hand. Reception staff were making remarks about guests in Spanish assuming no one could understand them. Not all like that by any means -some were genuinely helpful and friendly - whereas others bordered on being rude. Beware the sunbeds on the beach look like they belong to the hotel but don't. They rent privately for 20 Euro per day. You can also rent an umbrella and sunbed for 14E per day on the beach - but no free options. The beach is mostly shingle and hard on the feet - getting in and out of the sea wasn't easy! The seabed drops away from under your feet pretty quickly into deep water- as shelves very deeply as you go in. Very refreshing though - just good to know what to expect!
