Nice hotel, shame about the food
Hotel is well situated, connected to the beach by a 250m boardwalk. It has lots of outdoor activities - mini golf, tennis court, basketball hoop, 5-a-side pitch, swimming pool and grass areas. The buffet breakfast is excellent, pity the same cannot be said for the buffet dinner, we tried this the last time we stayed here and learnt from experience, even the enticement of a free bottle of wine with dinner could not compensate for the standard of the food. There was an al a carte menu available, but I think the kitchen would have been in a state of shock should anyone have ordered from it! This was really the only downside of the hotel. However, on our most recent stay there was a full fire evacuation at 11am which meant walking down 12 flights of stairs and for someone with limited mobility that is some ask! Also the lifts were not turned back on again for us to check that we had packed everything so my wife got a lot of steps in that morning! Overall a perfectly good hotel with all rooms sea-facing, ask for a high floor, but just be wary in case of fire or fire drill! There is a spa at the hotel but cannot comment as we have not made use of this facility. There are lots of good restaurants close by for an evening meal so don't be afraid to try out somewhere else. (O Infante restaurant and the local Gastro Pub to mention but a few)

Plus side. Clean room and glitzy public areas. Good size outside pool which was cleaned daily. All rooms have good sea views. Cold buffet breakfast provides a good choice of items. Downside. Small room (604) and very tiny bathroom. No sound insulation between rooms. You hear every cough, snore etc from the room next door. In the bathroom it is even worse what you hear! Wifi is unsecured and less than 1mbps, not even enough to load pics on bbc news on iPad. Bar prices are from another planet. Bottle of water placed in the room is not free and priced at over 3 euros. Hot buffet breakfast items, (eggs, beans, bacon etc) cold or at best luke warm and unappetising. Sorry but would not recommend unless you like sleep deprivation.
