we had a lovely couple of days in a great room, staff, service, fab food with back drop of the pools against the sea. the swimming pools were too cold to swim in and i would have loved tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Lovely hotel with some nice touches (welcome drink, fruit and croissants brought around the pool). Only negative is food was not hot enough everything was lukewarm and also there was nothing to do in the area - too quiet
"Older & more intimate style of hotel - recommended"
Illetas is a more upmarket and quiet area than the immediate Palmas suburbs to the east. The hotel is made up of a number of blocks positioned on the steep sea front so the multi level site gives a nice layout. But you must be happy with quite a few steep steps to get down to the sea. We stayed in the core part of the hotel where some of the rooms, like ours, had a sea view. Everything is kept very clean. The room was simply furnished but was absolutely fine. The staff were excellent, every staff member was very pleasant and always friendly and helpful from the moment we checked in. The breakfast buffet was expansive with loads to choose from. The evening buffet is good value if you stay half board and is varied nightly - in fact there are not that many other restaurants in the immediate area unless you get the bus or a taxi into town. (The bus stops right outside the hotel and is very cheap to use). Nice pools and sunbathing areas or is a 5 minute walk to a couple of popular nearby beach clubs that have sun beds and food. The coastline here is mainly rocky and has limited sandy beaches. Entertainment was provided nightly and did not go on too late. The overall impression is that the hotel is really trying (and succeeding) in giving an excellent holiday experience for each guest. A more classic hotel style than the nearby large hotel chain types.
Very clean well kept hotel fair few Germans stay here who demand a good standard.
Breakfasts plentiful great setting on balcony over the pool if you get there early. Evening meal taken in bar as hotel nearly empty for end of season was generous and well cooked reasonably good value as well for the area.
Rooms are fairly small but adequate and well equipped and presented, upgraded room has glass wall to bathroom which can present an odd view to anyone in the room foyer.
Small balcony with table and two chairs with great views from most rooms of the sea, higher rooms the better views I would think.
