Where is Occidental Isla Cristina located?

Nice hotel, friendly staff and popular with 'sun birds' at this time of the year. Isla Cristina is a working town and certainly not a resort. Offers very little (in winter at least), nothing close to the hotel and nothing much to see/do in the centre/harbour. A car is essential if you want to explore the area....and get away from the drudgery that is Isla Cristina.
A pleasant hotel close to the beach. Good for walking, bird watching. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant provided plenty and varied foods, though evening meals didn't begin until 19.30. We were on half board, though all inclusive is an option (VERY expensive if you wait to upgrade at the hotel) . Swimming pool was closed ([presumably for the winter). There is an activity organiser with a daily programme (not sunday or monday) and evening entertainment (mostly music and dancing). There is a small 'cinema' with a couple of films shown each day.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable.
Supermarket about 200 metres away.
