    El hotel es muy malo, todo está muy viejo y con apariencia sucia y descuidada. No tiene nada que ver con lo que esperas de un 4. Ojo si contratas habitación con vista al mar lateral no esperes ver el mar porque no se ve. Yo solicité que me cambiaen a una habitación desde la que se viese el mar y no hubo forma. Por decir algo positivo la comida no. Esta mal, pero en la bebida que no está incluida te pegan una clavada de pánico. El vino de la casa ni se os ocurra pedirlo. Es muy malo. En definitiva un sitio para no volver ni aunque me lo regalasen.

    Lo mejor la ubicación.

    Lo peor, ha sido todo. Estuvimos una semana en este hotel, y el sitio es nefasto. Huele a humedad y a viejo. Necesita reforma urgente, había cucarachas, el desayuno muy pobre, y el comedor apestaba a ser un sitio cerrado y viejo.

    Tendrían que renovarse.

    No es ni de lejos un 4estrellas. Y veo exagerado el precio.

    Lo peor, no es un 4, la habitación aunque está aceptable es muy mejorable, colchones o sábanas por ejemplo.

    El hotel bien, el wifi en la habitación no funciono en los siete dias a pesar de comunicarlo en recepcion por dos veces, el desayuno bien salvo los zumos (superaguados), ya sabenms que de maquina pero aveces eran inbebibles y la cena, cenamos una noche, infumable, la localizaciòn soberbia, ideal para alojamiento y desayuno.
