Absolute hovel

Just returned from our holiday at this hotel and was very dissapointed. The hotel looks loverly from outside but as soon as you walk in there are wet towels on floors and water running down walls. The room had mould dirt and smelt disgusting and was dark and dismal with the smallest balcony I've ever seen. No view apart from a broken light. The door had been smashed and didn't feel safe at night. Asked if we could change room and was told NO . Staff rude and not friendly. Pool area tiny with broken worn sunbeds. Sun only on pool area til 2pm then in the shade , so no sunbathing later in the day. Spent all our time out at the beach shopping and eating out. The breakfast was discusting too curled ham cheese and croissants and stale bread so ate our breakfast at a local restaurant. Great location and met some nice people but they all hated the hotel too. NEVER AGAIN FELT LIKE A HOSTEL NOT A HOTEL.

In need of a refurb

4th visit and I love the location. The staff were once again lovely .the downside is that it has never had any work done in the 5 years I have been going . The smell from the drains was in my room and spoilt our stay but it would probably cost a fortune to put that right. Needs tlc.

Weekend stay

Adequate hotel but dishonest maids, I left over €100 in the bedside draw I phoned the hotel when I got home the manager said he would check with the maid and "yes u guessed" they hadn't found any money..... it was definitely there no doubt... sad because otherwise we had a great stay .

Great Location

Good hotel in a great location, minuets from the square and beach. Bars, restaurants and supermarkets on the door step. Great public areas but the rooms although very clean need a bit updating the balconies are also small but there are roof top terraces with great views and sun lounges.

Very Basic

We stayed here for 11 nights in October. When I booked in April I emailed and requested a room on a high floor facing the town (no reply) We got a room below reception facing the back street. Girl at reception not interested in helping. Room (213) very basic and needs updating, small room and not a lot of storage space. Small bathroom with great shower. Kept spotlessly clean with maids in every day. We were room only so can't comment on breakfast and the bar was only open occasionally. The pool was quite small but ok. We would not stay here again which is a shame because it is in a perfect location.

Hotel is set in.the centre of albuferia old town, just away from the crowds. Location was fab. The hotel is basic but very clean. We were room only so not sure about breakfast it looked continental only and again basic. The bar area is nice unfortunately the bar des not open very often nor did it have any atmosphere. Overall we got what we paid for the pool area is poor very little space and certainly not enticing.
