This modern hotel comes well-equipped with all you need for a hassle-free beach break. The hotel is just a stone’s throw from the sea and a short walk from the resort of Caleta de Fuste.
Winner of the Spanish “Q” award for quality, the hotel itself is up-to-date and designed with enjoyment in mind. Offering two lagoon-like pools and an outdoor whirlpool bath, it’s easy to take ‘busy doing nothing’ to the next level here. Plus, there’s a separate children’s pool if you’ve got little ones in tow.
And then there’s the luxury Thalasso Centre just near to the hotel. This oasis of well-being comes complete with a sauna. And with all the treatments on offer, it won't just be the sun that’s making your skin glow.
Accommodation-wise, expect large, airy bedrooms with private balconies and huge beds. Décor-wise the rooms are as you’d expect – clean lines, wooden furniture, and a fresh, neutral colour scheme. And extras, like satellite TVs and hairdryers, come as standard.
As for dining, the restaurant serves up a wide variety of buffet food. Come breakfast time, whether you fancy a Continental spread or a full English, it’s all there for the taking.
Last but not least, the entertainment programme has earned itself a great reputation. Think stage shows with a distinctive West-End flavour and a mini-disco just for the kids.

Relaxing Spring Break
Just returned from seven days here, booked at the last minute for a much needed relaxation break. We booked a superior double room with a sea view and were very impressed with the size and quality of the room - a lovely big bathroom and changing area and a huge bedroom/ sitting area. My wife was totally taken with the huge and comfortable bed. Nice balcony as well. Worth noting that having a superior room entitles you to free wifi and free access to the Thalasso Spa (indoor and outdoor pools, gym, sauna, steam room, various jacuzzis and plunge pools etc and also a nice and quiet place to sunbathe). This was definitely worth the additional cost of the superior room for us! Foodwise - although there is only one restaurant, we couldn't fault the choice or the quality and particularly liked the fresh cooked (in front of you) meat and fish options, and carvery, that were there everyday and the very nice selections of bread, salad and desserts (There was also pizza and chips everyday for the 'brown food' lovers!) I have to admit to going for the english breakfast everyday - not healthy but it would be rude to let it go to waste! We were particularly impressed by the frequency that staff replenished the food - even if trays weren't empty, but were a bit messy, they would replace them with fresh trays, so the display always looked good. (We weren't tempted to eat dinner outside the hotel - the food in the hotel was far better than anything that we saw on offer in the local restaurants, unless you are desperate for a Chinese or Indian). We didn't sample the entertainment or the bar, but there were shows every evening for those who like that sort of thing.The outside/ pool areas were very nice and well kept. Although the beach is man made, it is a pleasant place to sunbathe but the sand only extends as far as the water - after that it is stony and not that pleasant for swimming (ok for watersports though). Location - Caleta de Fuste aka Costa Caleta is a small place and we explored the whole place within two days - not much to see. There are plenty of trip options though. Close to the airport so hardly any wasted time in transfers. Receptionists were helpful and, although there are a lot of people at the desks at check in times, we didn't really have to wait long and we thought they were pretty efficient. Overall, we had a great break in a very nice hotel and fulfilled our ambition to do very little except sunbathe, walk and eat!More

Good but should be able to do better!
This hotel although comfortable clean and had good food, with mostly friendly and helpful staff is let down by the need for a few simple tweaks. In the restaurant during the first few days it was chaos, tables were left uncleared between courses which meant that there was no room on the tables for the next course. While the dirty dishes were left, it was deemed a good idea by someone to take the salt cellars away to be re-filled and the next day the sugar sachets were replenished! Another big problem was caused by the fact that guests were not shown to their table which meant that people were often left to wander around looking for an elusive table,adding to the chaos, especially at the very busy lunch times when when for some reason half of the restaurant was cordoned off ! I know the rep had quite a few complaints about this and things did improve. I was also a little bothered that people on Half Board could help themselves to food and drink at the pool bar self service area, no-one monitored the AI bracelets!! This was made worse by the fact our bracelets were removed when we checked out although we missed lunch on the first day and were not picked up for the flight home until after 4 pm. We questioned this and were given a ticket for a free lunch. The hotel does not make guests aware of this so I'm sure a lot of people miss out. The evening entertainment, which although very good, is very loud and there is nowhere to escape from it indoors within the public area of the hotel, due to its open plan design. Apart from this we had a good time !!More

Great Staff - mixed experience in hotel itself
This is a good hotel but you need to be clear what to expect. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The hotel itself is clean and one of the great strengths is the staff for whom nothing is too much trouble and they work so hard. It is a large hotel in a good location with a beach outside and shops all around. The food good is of a good quality, well presented and changes every night. We had a half board option and there is more than you could ever eat. The downsides are the size of the hotel and how busy it is. The restaurant is so noisy you can hardly sit in it and there is no queue management at peak times with lots of children running around. This is not a problem but you need to be aware! Eat in the conservatory areas for a nicer experience. The pool area is too small for the size of hotel and there are not enough sunbeds of course and they get snapped up pre 0800 despite the requests not to so so. They could get rid of the mini golf course and put in a huge sea water lagoon which would be great. The worst things are the reception areas which are so busy and there are not enough staff. There is no system for checking in - you could wait well over an hour if your unlucky. This is ridiculous and needs sorting. It's no way to treat guests who've been travelling all day often with small kids. The wi fi system in rooms costs extra unless you are in a superior room (25 euros for the week) and is very slow and patchy at times. Also needs sorting. Silly niggly things like paying 2 euros for a clean pool towel do nothing to enhance the stay. The evening entertainment is ok - more family orientated. There is a spa next door which belongs to the hotel which looks ok but you need to give 2 days notice for treatments. You can use the pools and baths here for 18 euros per day (free with a superior room) they are quite nice but some of shower treatments don't work. The staff are not very helpful in the spa. The gym is free but you must bring a towel or you get charged 50 cents to use one - so petty! You can't get anything to eat in the spa which doesn't make sense so you have to come out for food but your not allowed to take food in! There are also bungalows which belong to the hotel and look a nice option. Overall not a bad hotel but we have stayed in way better 4 star - not sure we would stay here again.More

This has been an excellent experience and the staff are amazing! Lots to do at the hotel and in the area around the hotel. Very close to the airport which was great. Wheels touching runway to been at pool side was 25 minutes :-) The food was amazing! Massive variety daily to choose from. Did not hear one complaint about the hotel or the food the whole time we were there, in fact we just kept meeting people who were repeat customers for over 10 years which speaks for it's self. If like us you have kids this is a great choice of hotel both our girls loved the daily activities and they will love the beach next to the hotel.More
