Super experience!
From staff at reception on arrival to everyone else - service was great and staff really friendly. The sparkling wine and donuts in fridge as welcome gift was such a nice touch! Honestly cant think of anything to complain about! We had breakfast in hotel but otherwise ate out so can't comment on dinners. Will definitely be back.

Brilliant hotel!!
When I write and read reviews, I try and avoid the people who moan for the sake of it. This hotel is not the Waldorf Astoria - but I knew that when I booked!! What the Barracuda is in fact, is an absolute little gem of a hotel. My first trip to this part of Spain and when I return, I shall book this hotel without hesitation. The location first of all is perfect. Right next to the beach and promenade. Roughly 5 minutes walk from the harbour/marina. The rooms are very spacious and the air con is excellent. The beds are not the comfiest I have ever slept on, but I go back to my original statement and there are worse things in life. Bathroom was fine and the shower was astonishingly powerful. The best part of the hotel is the rooftop bar. Amazing panoramic views, cheap drinks and great chillout music. The surrounding nightlife is plentiful and will suit all tastes. Fabulous stay. Don't be put off by a 7.6 average. In my opinion, that is very underrated (for clarity, we were a group of blokes, 40s-70s on a birthday/leisure trip for 3 days)

Fabulous location and quality for a budget hotel.
Lovely friendly hotel. Has been refurbed with nice clean rooms, comfy beds and a powerful shower that doesn’t flood the bathroom. Fab views from the balconies overlooking the pool - you can see dolphins in the sea. Some of the breakfast food items could be better quality, but for the price we paid the value was brilliant. This is a fabulously located hotel. Right on the sea and prom with easy access to numerous lovely places to eat and drink. And the new rooftop bar is amazing! Highly recommended.

Standard rooms very poor.
The standard rooms are rather disappointing, no hairdryer in bathroom or kettle in room, old furniture. Pictures you see on websites are of the upgraded rooms, which cost alot more. There are no seating areas in reception, or a lounging area, its almost like they want you to come through the entrance and go straight to your room. The food is just okay, salads very good. Desert plain.
