This restaurant is open for buffet breakfast, light lunch and international dishes for dinner. There's also occasional show cooking and themed evenings where you can experience authentic Spanish tapas.
Hotel staff were polite, helpful, Hotel clean and tidy in quiet location, but with plenty of bars restaurants on its door step. Food was ok generally, but the English breakfast was the best I have had abroad.
Hotel is also close to the famous Hippy Market, and the beach is close by.
Entertainment was ok but dated.More

You get what you pay for and I'd wish I'd paid more
When we arrived off the coach we didnt get a warm welcome, it was more, "your rooms not ready yet, but you can have a coffee over there". Great we thought, never mind, we thought we would get a coffee and sit outside on the terrace, but we were surronded by smokers!
Got in the room, perfectly ok and clean for the holiday, although we first encountered the first of the money making scams, you have to pay extra for the safe, extra for wifi, extra for a kettle etc. We even went on a local bus trip and could get free wifi, so why does a hotel charge?
The hotel itself is dated and needs some money being spent on it, as a previous review mentioned the entertainment area leaves a lot to be desired (same being said for the entertainment itself) the fake leather furniture peels off on your arms leaving you covered in white dots.
The food is just ok, although we got bored in the end and who eats deep fried broccoli, not us for a start, we went all inclusive, but ended up going out to eat for a few lunch/evening meals.
The majority of the staff were hard working and friendly, although there was a youngish male member of staff who reminded us of Matteo off the tv programme Benidorm, very friendly to some women, not so friendly to other people, on the last couple of days there was a waitress who clearly had a cold/virus and was suffering but yet still allowed to serve food in the restaurant, not good!
Our main gripe was people smoking, one which we did mention to reception, I dont expect to go on holiday to eat round a table or lay on a sun lounger to be covered in someones elses smoke, which has just passed through their lungs and is now trying to get into mine. They should have designated areas for smokers not to be allowed to sit next to a non smoker, they dont allow it inside the hotel, so why 2 foot outside a door where people maybe eating.More

Room for improvement
Warm friendly welcome on arrival. One of the mattress sagged in the middle, excellent choice for breakfast but the evening meal on some nights was very average,the entertainment room with furniture that was imitation leather peeling on the arms depositing particles onto your clothing and the ceiling covering was a canvas roof with various holes the whole room was very depressing,these faults need to be addressed if the hotel needs to keep their 3* plus rating.More

Standard 3 star hotel. You get you pay for. Positives: clean, friendly staff, no kids, large rooms and nice pool area. I dont like to be negative but this hotel is in need of an update with decor. We paid for a "superior room" but to be honest I dont think it was worth it, these rooms have a larger tv, tea and coffee with (travel size) kettle. Hubby had to sit on the floor to plug it in. You also got a large balcony with sun longers. Unfortunately the sun never shone on the balcony! Beds not very comfy but was able to get extra pillows. Breakfast was nice but lunch and evening meals were disappointing. Food was always hot and well presented though. Entertainment was a mixture of good professional acts and.....bless him.....the hard working Juan. All in all we had a great time and met some lovely people. We have to thank the hard working staff for making us feel very welcome. More
Good 3 *
Just returned from 10 day break at this hotel , food good always something to suit, very friendly & helpful staff on reception,staff in dining room always seemed a bit rushed,could do with more staff I think,hotel very clean, but bathrooms need upgrading, looking very tired & worn,es canar lovely resort not too big but plenty going on, lots of places to eat & drink .We went to popeyes bar most nights good entertainment,the evening entertainment didn't look very good we heard quite a few comments regarding this. I'd say a hotel suitable for the older guest.More
