All public areas of the Hotel were always kept immaculately clean (as were the rooms) Food was of excellent quality. One advantage we found was that you are allocated a table in the restaurant for your entire stay, which obviously meant that everyone was catered for at meal times - meaning no queuing that we have encountered before in bigger Hotels where guest numbers outweigh restaurant seats.
Most of the Guests were of the ‘mature’ years although there were some younger couples, but very few young families. (May have been the time of year) Another nice touch was that in the evenings (which at the start of the holiday were a little chilly) the Hotel put some blankets out on the outside seating area for those guests who preferred to sit outside the main bar.
Overall a very enjoyable Holiday both in the Resort and the Hotel.

Very clean and spacious, immaculate bathroom, large balcony and air con. The only negative things about the room was the view from the balcony. We overlooked another section of the hotel and our view was their balconies and if curtain open their rooms. Needed our curtains shut most of the time for a little privacy.
The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good. Full English breakfast available each day, with the usual fruit, croissants etc. The meals in the evening usually consisted of a fish dish, meat and salad. Although not always hot enough. Various sweets available and ice creams. Felt the tables in the restaurant were a little too cramped together.
Couldn’t get a sunbed round the pool for the whole week we were there. Definitely not enough pool space for the number of guests.

The food is plentiful with plenty of variety. Often in the evening there were special dishes, eg. paella, Spanish omelette and prawns.
The staff are very friendly, efficient and obviously happy working at this hotel. We were there with our grandson who has learning problems and they were so kind to him.
Evening entertainment was varied, although there was bingo every night, not for us but very popular.
This is our fifth visit to this hotel and we will certainly be back.

The food was very good with plenty to choose from, vegitarians were well catered for. A carvery was provided on two nights and a typical English roast beef and Yorkshire pudding meal was offered, excellent Palma ham provided one night. The hotel owner and his family ate at the hotel.The hotel is very clean and well kept, cleaners working constantly. Towels changed whenever I wanted them
The hotel is in three blocks fairly close together. The main reception block has the swimming pool and the dining room. The block across a narrow, fairly quiet road has the bar where the entertainment takes place - Country and Western singers and bingo whilst I was there, though I went out most nights. The third block is where I stayed and is known as the Pergola block. Whilst this block is a slight distance from the two main blocks it is the quietest. If you want quiet ask for this block. The bus stop is at the back of the hotel where you can catch buses for most parts of the island, timetables available from reception, as were English newspapers.
All the staff I spoke to had good English and were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful even the cleaners were very friendly. The room had a fridge and electic kettle and cups provided and TV with no charge for the remote. Good choice of channels, Sky, BBC1, BBC2 ITV, channel 5 as well as Spanish and German channels. Shower over a full size bath, balcony with table and two chairs. my room had a side view of the harbour. I would definitely use this hotel again, it is a well run hotel giving good value for money.

Its in a great position on the harbour, i had emailed them before we arrived to see if we could have a table in the dining room to ourselves because they have a table sharing system, they were happy to do this.
On arrival we were shown to our room which was in another block further along the harbour next to the hotel consul, what a lovely surprise we had been allocated a suite at no extra cost, we had a seperate living room, fridge, a/c and kettle.
The food was lovely, a very good selection of main courses and desserts.
It was very busy in the hotel which at this time of year seems to mainly older people, but that was ok by me. would recommend this hotel and would visit again

All of the staff were very friendly and couldnt do enough for you.
The entertainment was reasonable , you had bingo every night followed by a professional show. One of these was a man called John who was very entertaining and very very funny.
We are going back to this hotel again next year , it is in a perfect location overlooking the harbour,
The hotel has two parts to it.
The new part has renovated rooms with air conditioning but if you want a harbour view you need to go into the old part of the hotel, these rooms do not have air conditioning and are quite dated but spotlessly clean. We had one of these rooms and the views were superb.All in all this is a good quality 3 star hotel.
