Pictures of the hotel and facilities are incredibly misleading. In no way is this a 4 star hotel.

Beautiful break in beautiful Gandia
Stayed at Hotel for 3 nights on half-board basis and will stay again in the future. The Hotel was easy to find and very close to beautiful beach, shops and bars. It was spotless throughout and the staff were friendly and professional. The food in the restaurant was of a good standard. Excellent value for money.

Hotel Principal, Gandia, Spain
We were particularly impressed withe the young man at the Reception desk, when we arrived. He was so helpful and very professional. We are not used to the types of beds in Spain, as the mattresses and pillows are very firm, by our standards (Canadian), so it was difficult to get a good sleep. Our timing was not the best, as it was Holy Week, as well as a major soccer championship game - which meant lots of noise and celebrations all night long. Despite that, it was a great location and nice hotel overall.

Teníamos una habitación con dos dormitorios. La habitación no tiene nada que ver con la publicación. Las habitaciones son bastante pequeñas y la habitación complementaria las camas son minúsculas. No son aptas para un adulto

El buffet es insuficiente. No reponen la comida y hay colas para entrar, después de esperar media hora cuando entras no hay casi nada ni de comida ni de postre. Y ya no reponen. El turno de cena era de 20:30 a 22:30 y a las 21:30 cuando entramos casi no pudimos cenar. Penoso
