On the contrary -the staff were welcoming and efficient -the hotel as charming and quietly efficient as ever and the accommodation and facilities in terms of swimming pool and access to the sea...

Having read earlier reviews, we felt that we had to write and put the record straight. Reviewers seem to be hung up about the fact it isn't a '5 star' hotel, yet it says it is. Well, the only people who make that claim are Melia themselves, and there's no independent rating like AA/RAC/Michelin in the UK. We would say...

Wonderfull location and very good service. Our suiter was over 60 metres big, several rooms, so plenty of space for the kids to play. Although we could not enjoy the beach due to the weather, it was occasionally possilbe to take a swim in the pool. Just a pity that there is no indoor or headed pool, because the weather...

I didn't even know that this hotel was supposed to be a 5 star hotel before I read the reviews here and I couldn't agree more. This is not a 5 star hotel, indeed! But as opposed to many other reviewers I kind of like the location. It's quiet and has a nice beach, all you need is close by,...

I found this hotel quite elegant at first sight. Then we checked in and I asked if we could have a room with a sea view. "That is 12 euro per person, madam" - was the answer. Is that 5* elegance.. I wonder. Anyway, the garden is very nice, we enjoyed that very much. There is a yoga/pilates etc class...

I am writing this during our week long stay, currently on Day 3. We always use Melia hotel group, as we enjoy the normally luxurious brand,and on booking, were promised that 5* luxury is guaranteed throughout the canaries, so it is a huge shock to find this hotel in our opinion is at best a 3*.

We were disappointed to see how this hotel has deteriorated since our last visit a few years ago. We had a standard, sea-view room which was adequate although rather too small to earn a 5-star rating. the bedroom and bathroom were a little shabby and, obviously, there has been not upgrading of the rooms for years. There used to be...
