    Todo estupendo

    Hemos estado de maravilla, las niñas super contentas. Nos encantó el desayuno, los espectáculos, animación y el aquagym (el chaval baila super bien). Volveremos

  • 8.0.Very good

    Ha sido una experiencia agradable en general, tanto en personal, limpieza, estado de las cosas, aunque muy a mi pesar he de decir que se resiente la calidad de las comidas, no por falta de variedad, ya que existe, sino por la calidad de ésta, que deja mucho que desear.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Decepcion TOTAL

    No volveria a este Hotel, ni lo recomiendo al que esté acostumbrado a un 4 estrellas. Mas bien este hotel es un 3 estrellas y muchas le pongo. Voy con la critica. Habitacion: mobiliario viejo, pintura de las paredes viejas, el baño pequeño. Las paredes de pladur fino con eso lo digo todo se escucha hasta respirar la habitaciones contiguas.El colchon es lo unico que se libra que estaba aceptable. Comedor: Pequeño, muy poca variedad y poca calidad en el genero, Muchas colas para las comidas en el buffet. Instalaciones: El hotel esta muy mal distribuido, la piscina principal es pequeña y no se puede acceder desde el cesped. La unica que esta bien es la piscina de niños. No tienen apenas actividades para niños. Resumem: no lo recomiendo a nadie que se quiera gastar el dineral mas de 300€ por noche a pension completa. TODO INCLUIDO: una estafa no incluye casi nada de la carta solo cerveza y algun licor. Jamas pagar todo incluido en este Hotel. Parking: tiene 2 uno en la recepcion con unas 40 plazas a 10 € dia y otro en el sotano que huele fatal pq esta donde tiran la basura del hotel a 15 € el dia o sea un robo. NO VOLVERIA A PAGAR POR ESTE HOTEL la estrategia de este hotel es meterte por los ojos el ACUAFUN pero tienes que saber que el parque acuatico no es exclusivo para los huespedes sino que tambien se accede de venta al publico es decir hay muchisma gente y no cogeras sitio si no corres a primera hora.

    Buen hotel para disfrutar en familia

    Buen hotel, limpio, habitación amplia y cómoda... y los niños encantadísimos con el aquafun. Hay servicio continuo de traslado a la playa (caminando hay 15min) Hotel recomendable. Ahora bien, en tiempos de pandemia, no es normal la gente que puede haber dentro de la piscina del aquafun, sin que nadie diga nada. No lo deberían permitir. Y más grave todavía lo del restaurante, que cada persona pueda coger la comida que le dé la gana, tocando absolutamente todo. Entiendo que hacerlo "bien" supone triplicar la plantilla... Pero seguro que hay otras formas.
