The hotel was fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful. Our family (2 adults 2 children 9 and 7) were there for New Years and my daughters birthday. We asked about a cake for her and they offered to bake a special cake, put her name on it and deliver it to the room or at dinner free of charge. The only downside to the hotel was unfortunately this time of year the outdoor pool was closed and come to find out the indoor pool was part of the Spa which was expensive to use (22-Euro/pp - just for the pool area) and was only available for kids for about an hour and closes at 8pm. The beach was very clean and was about a 5-minute walk from the hotel lobby. The beach was great for walking and playing in the sand and surf. The breakfast buffet was good and you could choose from an assortment of foods including a grill for fresh omlets and pancakes. Dinners were reasonable, but the selection was limited and the quality was fair - we ate mostly from the grill. Rota is a fun little city that is worth getting lost in for a day.
Lovely, bright, clean & airy hotel, close to the long, clean beaches. Nice clean hotel pools - no horrible chlorine smell. Fantasic range of food on the buffets at breakfast & dinner which is very important for me as a vegetarian who tries to avoid dairy products! Staff were friendly & helpful. Very family-orientated which was nice as it tended to be quiet after 11pm. Ideal for a completely lazy few days before I had to work!
This is a very nice area. Very popular summer destination in Spain. In November it was a bit cold. They bought space heaters for us. It was an apartment, not hotel. The essential items were provided. It is a huge complex with many buildings. There were only a few people there this time of year.

Travelers to Spain should not be fooled by the 2 star rating of the Apartamentos Sun & Life Costa Ballena . This wonderful …More
This was a better than expected experience. My son is stationed at the nearby Naval Base so it was a convenient location for that, but if he was no longer there, I would still come back to this hotel. room comfort got a 4 due to the bed comfort. It could have just been my back though. Everything else in the room was great.
