Positive Reviews

By the sea.

The location of this hotel is very ideal. It is within walking distance to the beach and a casino. Those looking to eat and shop won't be disappointed as there are restaurants and cafes nearby, as well as a market, deli, and pharmacy. The bus stops are also close by for those who want to explore.

It's all you'll need.

The large rooms and ample storage space is great for those who are staying for an extended holiday. The rooms are comfortable and many are outfitted with a room refrigerator. The large windows let in ample light and the underground parking is convenient for those who brought their own vehicles over on the ferry.

Even if it wasn't a hotel restaurant.

Even if it wasn't a hotel restaurant, you would want to eat there. The daily menu choices of Spanish cuisine will give you a great flavor of the area. The extensive menu offers traditional entrées, plus appetizers, dessert, wine, and coffee as well as a large breakfast buffet. Plus, it really fills the bill as the prices are affordable.

Negative Reviews

Early mornings for you.

The noise from other rooms can be easily heard in your own room. Expect to hear loud talkers, as well as flushing toilets. For those with street views, you'll also have that to deal with. Plus, the cleaning service starts early and you can hear all their exertions as well.

4-Star? You sure?.

Many guests argue with the four-star rating and think that level should be lower. Some of the rooms are outdated and none of them have any great views of the sea, bay, or sand. The bathrooms aren't well-equipped and there are few luxury features or amenities.

Not big talkers.

The staff, from reception to wait, aren't big talkers. You'll often get only one-word responses to questions or concerns. Overall, the service is cold and unfriendly, with no welcome smiles or helpful attitudes.
