    4/5 Good

    Nice stay

    The room was spacious. A few more lights would have made it better. The desk was a built in fridge so it was rather inconvenient to pull up a chair and work on my laptop there. The bed wasn't bad, but I could feel the coils beneath the covers. The multilingual staff was with one exception not that skilled in English. They arranged horseriding for me, but the stables wasn't anywhere near the hotel. The cafe wasn't at the property either. It was a few minutes walk down toward the beach I finally found the gym...

    One night at the Central Sal...

    I stayed at the Central Sal for only one night. On a positive note Bette Frittes, on reception was lovely... warm, efficient and friendly. This was in contrast to the night receptionist..... My room was 205 at the back of the hotel. I did make the point to Bette that there was a strong sodium street lamp directly outside of the window and the thin voile curtains did nothing to shade this. A blackout lining is needed. Furnishings were basic, the decor and lighting were oppressive. Aircon was an extra 10 euros per night and whilst the website photos show a beachside terrace, this is in fact at the Cafe del Mar where guests can obtain a 10% reduction in their bill. There is a nice roof terrace at the hotel so you can relax in the sun.... the bar did not have any beer though! Location is fine providing that you don't wish to be beside the sea, so this is a good basic option, but don't expect luxury.

    Hotel was about four streets back from the sea.

    The hotel was very clean,and the staff were lovely and so helpful. Very poor reception on the room Television and the fridge leaked. Dogs constantly barking and children playing in the street until all hours made it difficult to sleep.

    Pros: Very clean,and staff were friendly and helpful.

    Cons: nothing more apart from the faults I mentioned.

    Location: About four streets back from the sea front.Plenty of small shops and restaurants near by.
