The hotel is beautifully located at just few steps from the beach. It offers outstanding sea views, amazing spa facilities and a permanent fresh air with a nice perfume. I have no restrictions, and I do actually find myself obliged by circumstances, to mention Ms Piedad and Mr Alejandro who were as friendly as possible with a permanent can do... More

My husband and I have just returned from ten days at this hotel. I made a big mistake booking it! The hotel itself is excellent. Food good though breakfast not as good as some Riu hotels we have been to. No smoothies, homemade cake or fresh omelette. Problem is its proximity to bars and clubs. The minute you step out... More

It started out as an interesting experience with interesting guests, but it went South fast. As we were putting our stuff away after we checked in a hotel employee walked in on us.

It's a nice adults only, recently renovated hotel, with clean rooms and large bathrooms. I particularly liked that we were provided daily with fresh towels, even if the used ones were not left on the floor. The room could have been a bit bigger, but its size was not an issue. We had a front sea view room, which was... More

This hotel practices a lot of surbooking and as you arrive they just inform us that there is no free room for us. They even start shouting on us because we got angry. To finish, we were sent to another hôtel wich was a class below, different (not adults only) and very bad. As we are still there we can... More
