great stay in sep

Review by belfast_travels

we stayed here for a week from 6th of sep. overall really good experience. a few mixed points:

  • check in horrendously slow, about an hour with one couple in front of us. no need, and very little communication when we did eventually get speaking with someone...

a bit of an apology for the long delay would have went far

  • rooms slightly dated but nothing you can’t love
  • food overall really good, we were all inclusive we do this primarily for drinks, breakfast ok, snack bar handy you can get burgers, salads, toasties etc. good selection of drinks.
  • location perfect about 10-15 min walk into the old town, 10ish to beach. bit of a hill but no drama easy enough.
  • staff overall good at restaurant and spa, front desk not so much, not very friendly
  • cleaning staff great, fresh towels everyday bar sunday
  • pool good loads of beds

overall really good and will go again.

Lovely clean hotel

Review by Anita C

Stated here for 2 nights on all inclusive basis. Would highly recommend. Great selection of food...

Staff super friendly. Kept spotless. On both mornings there was a man at pool deep cleaning every sunbed and table. Bit of a walk to beach. Albuferia very hilly but a beautiful beach.

Another Great Stay In This Beautiful Hotel

Review by shellybrookfield Widnes, United Kingdom

Both me and my husband have been coming here for many years now and we love it!. The Hotel is in a good position for a walk to the Old Town, although there is a small train which leaves outside the hotel, It is about 10 mins walk to the beach again you can get the train half way. The hotel itself is immaculately clean, we were lucky enough to have a suite on the 4th Floor with excellent views ,our maid service was fantastic, room cleaned daily with fresh towels...

The Reception staff were very helpful indeed must say a thank you to Monica, Alexandra and Lourdes (also to the gentleman with the deep tan). The pool area is beautiful with free towels from the spa if you need them, there is a snack bar and a child area for the pool. The breakfast is buffet style with something for everyone, we will certainly be returning next year!!

Lovely staff, good facilities but missing the WOW factor

Review by SunSeeker1995 United Kingdom

Overall the hotel was very clean and maid service was efficient and attentive. The hotel had good facilities to offer and a decent selection of food for breakfast. Personally found the room decor a bit outdated and the blackout curtains did not seem to close over fully so small gap of light shone through, however was still able to sleep okay...

I'd recommend getting a pool view room as our room looked out onto a main road with lots of traffic. To use the safe was an extra cost wheareas other hotels offer free use of safe, but glad fridge was provided and was happy with wardrobes as very spacious. The laundry list was a joke very expensive although did not avail of this. The pool was spacious and clean, and there were plenty of loungers available to use. A big postive were the staff who were very informative and helpful, cannot fault their good service and hospitality. The location was good if you don't mind a 15min walk to old town centre and beach. Was located opposite a covid test centre and main bus stop which was handy for travel. Overall nice enough but other 4 stars for better value.
