    Nothing really although location may not suit the younger partying age group.

    Slightly ageing hotel but everything worked and was spotlessly clean. Hotel is a little remote so a hire car was useful. 10min walk to local supermarket and restaurants but bonus is that there's no night clubs or late bars nearby to disturb your sleep. Staff were excellent but we arrived before the peak season before its gets busy. In all very good value hotel with very helpful staff.

    We used it as a stopover on our way to Malaga.. Good location.. Close to the A7. At the beach. Swimming pool. Fully equipped apartment great for our family of 4. Nice view at the sea. And very quiet.. At least at this part of the year.. mid May. Would recommend also for holidays.

    Hotel and room fittings very tired. Kitchen area smelt of stale grease... Hob and cooker hood not clean. Beds lumpy. Other people's noisy aircon! Very noisy within hotel, sound echoes... Poor sleep last couple of nights when two coach party groups arrived and were still shouting and running about at 3 a.m. in the morning.

    Location... The view... Listening to the Sea... Excellent balcony... Swimming Pool... Aircon good, but noisy.

    It will take you around 10 min to go to the restaurants. And there are few of them.

    It's close to the beach. There are everything you need among kitchen equipment. Low cost prices in the bar. We had good sea views rooms.

    Bar area outside was dirty and had sick outside front entrance for 5 days. Garden areas overgrown. Hotel looks shabby and in need of a lot of maintenance doing. Not enough clothes hanging space for family of 4. Very overpriced for standard of accommodation. Entertainment put on for children was ok if you were Spanish, nothing for English. My partner actually said it was the worst hotel he as ever stayed in.

    The pool was cleaned everyday

    This is a basic 2 star hotel with apartments. The hotel was full to bursting with Spanish families who all seemed to love it. Spanish families eat and socialise from around 09.00 until 3am every night with all of the small children, this is generally their way of holidaying. I would not in all honesty say that this hotel is what typical English families would enjoy. It was all a bit dilapidated, and personally, as a family we do not self cater and go to bed to sleep at around 11.00pm. Our trip was for a sudden funeral and so we are very grateful that we had somewhere to stay at such short notice, but this would not be suitable place for us for a holiday.

    The buffet restaurant was quite good. And the pool was very nice. This hotel is very popular with Spanish speaking families.

    Far too loud music at noon when kids club used the amp. No one could speak without shouting. The food in the restaurant was mainly frozen junk and coffee machine made bad cappucinos so we cooked ourselves and that was much better as there is a 10 min adult walk to restaurant area in Mil Palmeras.

    Pool, view from balcony as our room was 3rd floor and with sea view, friendly staff, cleanliness

    Accommodation is functional but furnishing is rather tired. TV is Spanish channels only. No toaster. No hairdryer. No in-room safe. But it is good value.

    Great location. Steps down to the beach and 900 metres from the restaurants and bars of Mil Palmeras. Need a car, but parking's free and plentiful. Lovely pool. Large balcony with sea view and all-day sun. Very reasonable price. Plenty of hot water and loads of towels. And it does have WiFi and it's free.
