The free underground parking is a nightmare. The car park is located underneath the hotel, accessed through a roller shutter door on a one-way street. People have a tendency to drive very close behind you, which means often you have to drive around the block to try to park again. Also there are cars parked opposite the shutter door, making manouvres very difficult. Negotiating the narrow entrance and the car park below requires another person to guide you in. Literally leaving only millimetres of space to negotaiate between the walls.
The hotel is located in an urban area, where we saw gangs of youths congregating, many using stret drugs and drinking. It felt very intmidating in the evening and we travelled by taxi at night when possible.
Overall, the Sabinillas area isn't at all pleasant and best avoided at night.
The location was ok. We were visiting family in nearby Puerto de la Duquesa, which was a short stroll along the beach next to the hotel.
Plenty of local shops and supermarkets on the streets surrounding the hotel. Also a selection of cafe's and bars along the saefront to the rear of the hotel. The beach was also excellent but we didn't swim because we visited in November.
