    All rooms have a balcony but no furniture to enjoy the area. A bit far from the centre to see the attractions and to have a walk

    Swimming pool area. Great place for the start of the park.

    Booking.com didn't pass on message for double bed request so were given 2 singles but friendly lady at reception swiftly found us a couples bed on our request and saved the day.

    Newly refitted hotel, nice and spacious and clean and fresh smelling, very modern style of hotel with lots of lounge sofas. Free Parking. Swimming pool and spa fitness. friendly staff, great large bedroom and bathroom, nice TV with loads of channels in different languages, fantastic buffet breakfast, king size oh so comfortable bed . We really enjoyed our stay and would return.

    • Stayed 1 night

    The hotel has a spa, a gym and a swimming pool, which is great, but the hours are very limited - they're open just from 9 am to 8 pm, which is a pity, because it would be great if the guests could have full-time access, if not also to the gym, at least to the swimming pool.

    The bed is wide and really comfy, the decor is quite elegant and demure, and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast offers a good variety of products, and has an extra expresso machine, as well as real orange juice. The hotel is located in the lower part of the city, which can be inconvenient if you don't like to walk and don't have a car, but in all fairness it's just a 20 minute walk from the city center and has the advantage of being close to shops, coffees, places where you can have a fast meal and two very nice public parks.

    The pillows are not that good. The hotel should have another choice. Other negative point is the swimming pool. It is shared with a public access gym, which means that there are lots of people there and lack of control. Too many people running and jumping.

    The location is great. Has a lidl at doorstep, a shopping mall at a short walking distance and it’s about 20km from Torre. The hotel is very clean, has parking and the breakfast is very good.

    Our group booked two rooms with kids and both bookings had problems. One the hotel wanted to put a cot for a 3.5 yo to sleep two nights, we didn't think it was appropriate. The other room, although through Booking.com the ages were specified (8+10), the hotel got information for two kids under 3. All sorted but only after a few phone calls

    Nice location and comfortable rooms. Swimming pool is good but a bit crowded in busier days.

    -The pool looked like a kindergarten, loud and obnoxious with so many kids. Couldn’t use the hot tub. -Breakfast was good but could have more items. -One of the ladies in staff was kind of unpleasant. -YOU HAVE TO PAY 3€ FOR A SWIMMING CAP IF YOU DONT BRING YOUR ONE. -Hotel would not provide a robe. You have to RENT IT. For 2,5€. -Hotel does not provide disposable flip flops. You have to buy them for 0.20€ a pair. -Room showed signs of humidity. -Felt kind of embarrassed after the staff asked us if we took a pillow from the room at the time of check out. -You have to walk a lot to get to the swimming pool. Also it doesn’t look like it belongs to the hotel. A lot of outside people.

    Communication - We were not informed the gym would be closed on Sunday, where the sauna was and that a key for the lockers could be provided. Cleanliness - Even though we left our room at around 10:30am and came back at around 4pm, the room was not tidied up, we left the card on the door requesting it.

    The room, the pool, the breakfast, the gentleman that served our drinks at the bar, he was very polite and friendly. Overall the hotel and the facilities are very nice.
