Positives - Very central location, short walk to the beach and port area with bars and restaurants. Taxi rank and horse drawn carriage just at end of the street. Tree lined streets so you don’t feel too far from nature. Food was always hot when required and always refreshed when empty. The small pool and sun terrace is on floor 7 and the 6th floor room I stayed in was more than adequate. There is free wifi in the restaurant floor and when I requested wifi for the room I was given the password free of charge.
There were two decent sized wardrobes in the room, a LCD TV with BBC world channel and two other English news channels on it. In room telephone, bedside lights, desk with chair and built in fridge. There is a safe in one of the wardrobes but I didn’t use this although other guests I spoke to did. The bathrooms are a bit dated like most of the décor but the shower was hot and good water pressure even on the 6th floor. The aircon needed a bit of instruction in how to use it but worked well and only a bit noisy when on full fan. The aircon stays on even when you switch off the main room switch.
Negatives – the hotel décor etc is a bit tired but it does have Spanish character and a lot of Spanish people stay here. There is some building work going on next door on the first floor but higher floors are best, as noise can travel up from the street as well.
The sun terrace is on floor 7 but the lift only goes to floor 6 (no further space for comments)
