Location, that's all. Terrible in the rest.
I had an issue with the attitude of a person who is not even the manager, a person called Ángel. This guy is in charge of groups and he seemed to be in charge of everything else. I could not get a room with a view because he said he had them all booked for a group coming the next day. I offered to pay more money for what I wanted, and still a NO. Mr. Ángel is one of those guys who has no manners, rude attitude, and should not be working in front of people. In Spain there are two kinds of people, those who are sour because they can't find a job, and these other ones who having a job are upset for having to work. I hope he can be part of the first group soon. It is terrible for a wonderful chain like Silken to have employees like this. I stayed in Silken Puerta America in Madrid before, and Silken Coliseum in Santander afterwards, and they employees were great. What a difference! This hotel is only nice from the outside. Old, small rooms, no air conditioning working properly, and my room was like an oven. The only good thing is location, but next time I will go to another one on that location but more quality at all levels. Do not stay here to save, not worthy at all. A disgrace for the Silken chain that I usually liked so much.

Terrific beach stay.
Loved this hotel. Paid for ocean view after reading review. It was well worth it. Very comfortable. Would have loved a jug to make tea in room. Great location on the beach. Lovely ocean walks back into town and east along the coast. Check in ladies terrific. Night reception man unfriendly but still very helpful, would greatly recommend.
