Yet not far from main road I had silent nights and traffic is quite low. Moreover, I could park on street without problems...

We visited this hotel for 4 nights while attending a wedding nearby. It is situated right by the A7 busy road. Our room looked out over the road and the Burger King. The sea can be seen in the distance. The room was good, with a spacious bathroom. The pool area was very nice, with small garden area and plenty...

Great for relaxation and sun. The pool area is very chilled and plenty of beds with a good bar that serves food and drinks. Shame they play the same songs over and over!

The hotel is situated in the middle of nowhere! If you are not planning on renting a car but like to go for a walk at night time forget this place!

OK hotel with shuttle to the beaches. Breakfast was good. Received excellent tips on restaurants nearby. No minibar in the rooms so remember to buy water in reception or at the super market. Noise from the bathroom taps in 30 minutes after using them. We had 3 rooms and this was the case in all rooms.
