It appears to be predominantly a hotel for Spanish pensioners, who get the sunny side rooms. If you want to move from the dark side, the premium...

This hotel is predominantly spanish as opposed to a typical European holiday resort, in so far as the day to day routines revolve around the spanish way of life. The buiding & rooms are shabby, no facilities other than the pool. Breakfast food quality is poor. Staff are unfriendly, some rude, bar staff prioritised the Indigenous & ignored others. Seems...
