    Fantastic location

    We decided to have a short break away from home and chose Pensicola - mainly because of being at the beach but also because of the connection to the film 'El Cid' - husband is a film geek. The facilities of the hotel were great, especially the outside swimming pool. We have a 5 and 6 year old who thoroughly enjoyed their days, I also think they entertained the other guests who were of a more mature age bracket. Everything about our break was great and would highly recommend to everyone.

    Good for families/kids,but avoid full-board buffet

    The location right on the Peniscola beach and the very nice pool area makes this an ideal family resort hotel, and it also seemed to offer a lot of activities for smaller children and shows every night. Our family, w 15-year daughter, were only making a one-night stop on our car ride from Alicante to Barcelona, so we did not expect to make use of any facilities. Rooms are quite standard, fairly large and tidy, with a balcony, either facing the pool area and/or the beach. Staff was OK, but never get personal in a hotel of this size. The only negative about this hotel, in our opinion, was the food. We had a very affordable price including full-board, so we made use of the included dinner, which was a buffe in the huge and not very cosy restaurant. This buffe was really a bad experience, whatever dish we tried, it did taste like... nothing. The breakfast was OK, but nothing more So enjoy sun, bath and children's activities in this hotel's pool area or on the beach just a few steps away, but avoid the full-board, ad try some of the nice restaurants nearby on the nice beach walk of Peniscola!
