    1/5

    Noisy room, without any hot water for a week

    Firstly let me say that the cleaning and catering staff were great. Breakfast good and bed comfortable, unfortunately that's where it all ends. We paid extra for a superior room, although I'm not sure what that was for as the room didn't look the same or have any advantages. After repeatedly asking to change our room due to the noise (single glazed windows opposite a busy road and a nightclub) we were told there were no free rooms even though I saw several people vacate on many occasions. Apart from a TV with no signal, no In Room WiFi, terrible WiFi in lobby, a door opening straight out of the side of the building with a 6 foot drop (dangerous for children), the worst part was having no hot water for the entire stay. I can personally handle most problems but having no hot water on a winter holiday is a deal breaker I'm afraid, the excuse for this was that the hotel was full and people were showering at the same time (well its the hotels duty to ensure a full hotel is capable of dealing with the load) . So in conclusion I'd avoid as im sure there are better places for the price.

    4/5 Good

    Round the corner from Santa Maria

    Hotel staff are superb, paid for a deluxe room but I'm not sure what was deluxe about it as we had 2 joined single beds plus plenty of mould near bedside cabinet. Breakfast was more than enough for those not fussy like us.
