    ‘It was a good relaxed holiday’ Translated by Google

    show more

    • Hotel in general
      Hotel looks nice and clean at first sight when you enter. If you stay a little longer, certain things will fall. Balcony door, for example, did not close properly. It is much too hot in the rooms, temperature can not be arranged by yourself, despite the fact that it seems. It is very noisy, tapping heels from the neighbors are well audible. The door must close with a bang otherwise it will not close. You can also wake up in the night.
    • Service and hospitality
      Staff is very friendly and helpful.
    • Cuisine
      Buffet was delicious, meat you can choose and is prepared for your nose. Eating in abundance, just a pity that people dine so late in Spain. And it is a pity that you have to deposit 3 euros (!!!) for half a liter of water.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Fitness room is actually a mockery, old creaking fitness equipment and when it rains hard there are just puddles on the floor. There is no air conditioning. Sauna room is quite small for 30 euro access. Very noisy because there are continuous water jets. Not nice if you come for the rest. A number of saunas did not work, which is a shame. This leaves little choice.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Treatments were good, only always shorter than indicated.

    ‘Nice hotel good location friendly staff’ Translated by Google

    Sorry but leaves after the maintenance. In Hammam paint peeling off. Here above is the area was very nice. In the sauna just go into it with towel and sweating vigorously not so pleasant.  In the swimming pool, the showers go very bad and not. The restaurant maybe rather a trifle. The waiters do not know what kind of soup of the day there and afterwards he served the stew without bucket. But these are really small things if they do not happen often ... Is indeed a 5 star hotel. Otherwise you feel comfortable. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The lobby is very appealing to the reception very, very friendly, rooms are clean and very nice the location perfect.
    • Service and hospitality
      The restaurant as already mentioned there are a few little things.
    • Cuisine
      The lunch menu is a bit sparse but taste excellent.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The ambiance is very nice. The conditions at the beach chairs are consumed slightly. In the pool outside the spa showers go sparse or not 1 of. 2 The pads on the sun could renew times. However, we have entpsannt anyway. Are now since the 4x and it falls just on a little more maintenance should be done. In Hammam color leaves off.

    ‘except for a few small things very relaxing.’ Translated by Google

    The ambiance was very nice. We found good that all sea-side rooms are. Also there is a restaurant for lunch. The staff is very friendly. However, they wanted to us first do not give 2x per person Thalasso. The translation into English what we printed was not unique. Since we had booked but the same in January, the reception is checked, it was then. One should specify more clearly when fit Travel that was it booked 2x Thalasso per person and day. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Lobby and reception much to our satisfaction. Clean the rooms all need showers times decalcified otherwise the rooms, cleanliness are top. A huge drawback is however that who you are the chairs or tables, it moved a very loud sound quitschender. We had experienced 2x (Jan and March). This interferes with sleep quite formidable because it often does not remain at 1x. In the morning when someone checks out earlier are awakened them. For a 5 star a huge weakness for peace they then have no more. The location was perfect for us. We had already noted in January at the reception but ....
    • Service and hospitality
      This service is top.
    • Cuisine
      The restaurant for lunch is not bad but times as a nice salad is as usual not to get too often in Spain. We thought a 5 star has determined. But we got very large pieces of lettuce (had to cut na yes. Other meals like pasta and so were delicious. The breakfast buffet is really great.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The spa area is very nice for themselves. But also because faults do on. The spa is small tiles dissolve in the water. Also, there are not always tea because the hot water dispenser not funtionierte. The showers do not work all and are badly in need decalcified times. A hammam is not to use (was the last time even so), only the steam room and sauna. Just when heated indoor swimming pool. Very nice sea view. But only cold showers that barely functioned includes decalcified urgently.
    • Treatments and programmes
      We had no applications
