Just simply average hotel clean nd basic but all you need really for a self catering holiday!!!!! Within walking distance to shops and restaurants. You can also walk to the albuferia nightlife strip which would take a 20- 30 minutes walk.

Certainly not brilliant but not the worst place I have stayed. It is attached to the Balaia Plaza (a 4start hotel) where most of the facilities are located. The pool at the Plaza is nicer but the sun loungers at the other pool are more comfortable. Our apartment 312 overlooked the pool was fairly large but a little bare, it...

Nice roomy apartment, lovely view, cleaned regularly. It was early season so cleaning work was being carried, could use the facilities at the sister hotel. Shops within walking distance. Within walking distance of the Strip if you are young and fit enough to do it otherwise Taxi about 6 euros. For the price well worth it.

After a 4 hour flight delayed, we finales arrived at the hotel around 1am. Went to check in and they had no booking made under our names. After a few phone calls, the staff member gave us a room on the fifth floor. The room was an absolute disgrace, holes in the walls, very dated decor and the balcony was...

When we arrive there, paying almost 100€/night we were expecting something clean and in acceptable conditions! We needed to buy detergent to clean the apartment! The apartment was old and degradation was visible! Then the WC stop working, and it was disgusting! For some more eur you can find better places around! I won't be there again for sure!

Rooms are good enough to sleep in and cleaned on a daily basis. If book with thomsons there is no holiday rep or any helpful info so got to fend for yourself. Two great outdoor pools for both adults n children. Also an indoor one. Downside is that it is taxi rides away from the strip and also old town...
