Not 4 star
Clearly not a 4 star hotel the lobby is poor with a sofa that looks like something you would buy in a charity shop. The room was average at best and our window overlooked a building site. The bathroom was poor the bath stained. They charge €12 per night for a parking space it is a nightmare to park around the hotel . the safe key charge 8 euros Per night to use the safe

Great position
Right on the beach and conveniently positioned to walk the town. Clean but we had a few problems with the air conditioning. Breakfast was good in a nice restaurant overlooking the beach. Street parking is a problem in this area, you will need to use the hotel’s car park. The hotel gives vouchers for some of the local activities. This resort is very clean and relatively quiet. The beach sand is sharp – take your flip flops!

3/5 Okay

Close to the beach but that is NOT 4 star hotel
Close to the beach but that is NOT 4 star hotel... Old fashion hotel and renovation had been done at least 20 years ago. Looks like an average motel in Canada.

Good hotel on nice location with all you need
All in all, we were very happy with our stay. The service was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast (included in our price) was excellent. The location is nice and quiet and not far from the town center. The pool was very nice and clean. The rooms were OK but a bit worn for a 4* hotel. Having to pay several euros per day for the room's safe lock was a bit excessive, but this and the small city tax were the only unexpected costs for us. The hotel has a tennis court, which is nice, but the court was in terrible condition and covered in bird feces. Hotel parking was pretty expensive so we decided to park a 10 min walk away (to the west behind the arcade), where there was ample space except in the weekends (July).

Catalonian charm
Classic hotel facing the sea so the location is great. Comfortable, quiet, clean room with lovely views. Very relaxing sitting out on the balcony. Air con. is quiet and effective. A few minutes walk from the town's shops and restaurants. Secluded pool with sunbeds and a hammock in the garden! The manager Jose, and his staff are keen to help with anything and provide good service. Food is plentiful and hot with a good choice. Waiter service at lunch was charming with the restaurant overlooking the sea.
