    Overnight on my way to southern Spain - with a dog

    Overnight with a dog - hotel is ok, super clean and had a nice sea view. Breakfast is average. Parking was easy in the same street. Very calm.

    Quirky hotel with lovely staff. Great location near the beach and old town as long as you don’t mind an uphill walk back.

    Great location 10 mins walk to the beach 20 min walk to the marina. The rooms only had 1 electrical outlet. It was a challange charging devices. I have never been to a hotel where you have to pay to use the gym. The pool area is nice however the snack bar inside is very expensive. There is a convience store 3 mins walk away. Go there for drinks and snacks it is very reasonable. Don't forget to ack your beach towel. They do not provide towels at their pool.

    Location was excellent. However in room there was only 1 electrical outlet avaliable for phone charging. Not even an outlet in the washroom. I have NEVER stayed at a hotel that charges for use of their gym to guests. Breakfast food was the same everyday. After day 3 it was dissapointing.

    Bra läge men småsnålt!

    Sniket beteende på Hotellet. Inga näsdukar på rummet. Bara en nyckel. På frukosten fanns vita bönor varannan dag. Lovades rabatt i restaurangen som vi aldrig fick. Maten sådär, mycket bättre att äta ute i stan. Däremot kvar städningen toppen och det två av receptionisterna var mycket trevliga.

    Très bien.

    Personnel très sympathique et disponible pour répondre à nos questions. Hotel propre mais chambre avec décors désuet, ne remettent pas de produits comme le savon, shampoing s’ils sont terminés ou presque, insonorisation pauvre a cause des portes en bois et des planchers en céramique, 2 lits simples moins appréciés....tout cela nous a déçu pour le prix....trop cher selon nous si on compare avec les autres hôtels faits durants notre séjour au Portugal. Bien situé mais très en hauteur par rapport au centre et a la plage, ça tient en forme!! Environnement calme apprécié toutefois. Piscine extérieure avec resto snack très bien. Déjeuner très bien. N’avons pas pu profiter de toutes leurs autres installations car n’avons pas eu le temps.... Je recommande mais avec certaines réserves selon les critères de chacun!

    Me senti lesada por não me hospedar no que reserve

    O Hotel é rasurável, porem não ficamos no Hotel e sim ao lado, ou seja, em uma extensão do Hotel na Rua ao lado, num quarto no subsolo, muito velho e de ruim acesso. Tinhamos que sair na Rua e andarmos até o Hotel para tomar o café da manhã e se queríamos usar as demais dependência do Hotel, como piscina e etc, também. Porem não gostei de reservar um Hotel no preço que pagamos a diária para ficarmos em outro local, ou seja, em um pequeno prédio ao lado e não no Hotel. Não gostei.
