Super friendly staff, great location, spacious rooms and terraces, tasty food. On the other hand our mattress was worn-out and sound insulation of our room was extremely poor, very disappointing at this price level.

Had a great week - room, food, staff, service - all so pleasing, already looking at dates to go back! Loved the infinity pool!Only catch.. due to rock fall (currently being fixed) entry access to reception was up a steep and cobbled drive.

Lovely quiet hotel, coach dropped us on the roundabout, cobbled uphill walk to the lift to reception on 6th floor, could be problematic if you have mobility issues.Room was clean, with a side view of the sea. It was not quite what we were expecting, there was just the coffee table and chairs, the photos led us to believe there would be sunbeds on the balcony as well as chairs,The room had a kitchenette regularly topped up with milk and teabags, (complementary bottles of water in room 2.50euros at dinner) until after the guest questionnaire had been filled in, seemed to forget after that. The beds were extremely comfortable, the food was very good lots of choice. My husband enjoyed the pool the 3 times he went in, we did not spend a lot of time at the hotel during the day, and went out after dinner in the evening. Entertainment not good enough to make us want to stay at the hotel in the evening.☆☆Where our room was situated if the wind was in the direction of the hotel was the smell of sewerage from across the road. Passing it walking down to the beach made us quite nauseous. Amadaous beach itself along with the bars restaurants was lovely, my husband said there is quite a drop in depth in the sea to be aware of. 12 euros for 2 beds and parasol for the day.As we were celebrating my husbands 60th birthday, the hotel left us a bottle of cava and cake in our room..nice touch...would go back but request a room not in block 4.Bus stop across the road, frequent service, and a cheap way to visit other beaches nearby.

Perfect hotel for stay at Playa de Amadores. Amazing view from the balcony. Huge breakfast selection. Free parking. Big sunbathing area. Multiple pools. Several bars in the hotel. Good dinner restaurant.

Just returned from a week’s stay over New year. The hotel is fabulous and very well located. Overlooking the beautiful Amadores beach which is a ten minute walk from the hotel. There is a coastal path to walk along to the port of Puerto Rico. We took taxis easily to the shops/bars of Puerto Rico which is five minutes away. A 15 minute taxi to beautiful Puerto Mogán and just over one hour on a bus to Las Palmas. There is a Spar shop just outside the hotel for all essentials.The hotel rooms are large and spacious, very clean and with big balconies overlooking the beach. The staff without exception are so hard working and friendly and helpful which is wonderful. The buffet is excellent the best I have experienced, something for everyone. New Year’s Eve was well organised and there was a wonderful buffet and fireworks display at midnight which was a lovely surprise.The spa is lovely and relaxing, we had wonderful massages and the infinity pool was absolutely amazing and warm enough in January. We found it easy to get loungers on the upper floor by the other pool and they had some nice beds here too which we used most days. The hotel is immaculately clean. The only down side is evening entertainment at the hotel needs to be improved. We found evenings very quiet here and struggled to find a good bar within close distance. Recommend Tipsy Bee in town. We would definitely recommend this hotel it made our holiday! Perfect winter sun break. We hope to return soon!

This certainly was a Christmas stay to remember, excellent throughout from the moment of arriving to that on sadly leaving. I found everything was geared for the enjoyment of the guests. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the food is first class with so many options in the buffet restaurant at breakfast, lunch and dinner - the Christmas evening meal being so well planned and catered. Rooms are spacious, cleaned daily, with plenty of wardrobe space and a generous balcony overlooking the bay of Amadores with its glorious sunset. My room had a separate shower and bath (Tip bring own hair conditioner, though if you forget there is a "Spar" shop 100 metres away!) Outside the pool areas are again cleaned daily with many sun loungers for you to lie on the provided towels. The pool, sun terrace, mirador bar on the same level as reception also benefits from a variety of lounger beds and seemed to be used almost entirely by adults. The spa area is well used. However what really "makes the hotel"in my opinion, are the staff, no matter their role. All were always so cheerful, friendly and eager to help. We will be back.Other tip: The inclusive option is value for money (now the bracelet system has been replaced with a card system)

Amazing hotel with view of Playa Amadores and an easy 5-10 min walk to the beach. Service was excellent, personal very kind and helpful and our room was amazing. Infinity pool spectacular, although water temperature a little cold 🥶. But all in all an excellent experience, would come back soon.

Don't bother with this place if you want all inclusive and a quiet time!Still here ATM having taken family and grandchildren for half term break, listening to disco bar over the road from in the room with doors closed and curtains pulled.First the positives.Great bay and beach. Ideal for swimming.Larger than usual rooms. Ours had a bath and shower, although the shower is an old fashioned mixer one that runs cold or boiling hot.Most staff are very good, if overworked!I must mention Patriq (kidz club) who is fantastic with the children but completely overworked.Now the negatives.Apparently a rock fall has closed the main entrance drive, so the only way in and out is via the lift next to the loading bay. (Govt has a closure notice on the drive, I'm told) Not made aware of this by Jet 2, even though they have known for 4 months. In our case the private transfer dumped us off in the dark in the loading bay to find our own way.Once we found reception (no help with luggage) only one person on the desk (odd for a Saturday night)Our room was at the other end of the hotel. This is a large hotel , but again,no help with bags etc.We spent nearly 12k for 7 nights fully inclusive, but not everything is included. I get premium drinks would be extra, but the hotel has some strange rules. You get a card which must be presented at all times when ordering drinks and food. At that point you are told what is included and what is not. eg some burgers at the pool bar/restaurant are included, some not, same with ice creams.Not enough staff for the kidz club. Activities cancelled at the drop of a hat .The wine included in the restaurant is pretty ropey .There is a main road just under the hotel which is pretty busy 24x7. So when the disco bar closes you have the road noise.I could go on, but the central theme is that it appears the hotel is penny pinching . Plus unfortunately it's in the wrong place, or the road and disco is .Can't understand why their reviews are so good as it's definitely not worth the money.

Lovely spacious room with fabulous view of Amadores beach. Only a soap dispenser in the bathroom, no moisturiser or conditioner so I had to buy some.The food in the main restaurant was very good with steak & fish being cooked individually to your taste.All the staff were very efficient & polite.Plenty of sunbeds around the glorious affinity pool, but this may get packed if you were there during g the school holidays.Highly recommend a holiday here.

The hotel has got a beautiful view over the Amadores. Excellent cleaning. Staff of very serviceminded, children friendly and always smiling people.We had the stay with nice and variated breakfast and it was made even better by a very good vaiter (Manuel).I had birthday when we were there and the hotel has put Champagne and cake in the room.We went to the Á la carte restaurant and got the tasting menu🤩 (with wine, well chosen, by the vaiter), which was splendid and served by Philip a very competent and pleasant vaiter who made the evening a special night. We will definitely come back 🙂

In general a good place, enjoyed my stay a lot but here are the following points that disappointed me..Arrived at 11 am, was told check in is at 2pm , went for lunch and came back at 2pm for check in they kept me waiting for a whole hour saying that they're still cleaning the room because apparently the current visitors checked out late although they knew we were coming, not to also mention how rude the lady behind the desk was... when we finally got to the room, the room was absolutely dirty with candy rappers left on the floor, hairs on the floor, my baby's feet were black after he walked on the floors for like 10 mins, when i approached them about it they said it was not cleaned properly because the last visitor checked out late which is absolutely a ridiculous excuse for a 4 star hotel. A well-respected hotel would immediately offer another room or something but nope nothing.They don't provide irons in the room so make sure you either bring your own or iron your clothes at home before travelling, instead they offer to iron your clothes for 5 euros a piece :)The shower's temperature is unstable hot - cold- hot, horrible showers haha, but i got used to it after 3 nights..Regarding food, lots of options, very impressive, but like only 10% was tasty, dessert was very good.Both adult's and kid's pool were always so cold.

Amazing hotel! Big rooms, the best view of Amadores beach, nice food. The only down side is the line you sometimes have to wait for lunch or dinner. There is enough parking spaces... We will be back!

This place is awesome. This hotel was the first one to be build at Playa de Amadores and it ignited an avalanche of activity in the area. The place is beautiful, both inside and outside. The pool is fantastic. And it has a great spa. But what we liked most of all is the staff. They make you really feel at home without overdoing it. We highly recommend this place. Go check it out! And don't forget the food... which is awesome as well. 5 star experience. This was our second time here and we will be back for a third...

We recommend it mainly for the swimming pool. The infinity pool is a five star one. It has a big jacuzzi in the middle and a spectacular view. The aqua spinning activity is also nice, with a kind trainer. The access to spa is free. The food is good, with a wide variety. They even have a real honey comb for breakfast! The hotel was understaffed during our stay in August, and the waiting time at the restaurant or pool bar was very long at peak hours. The waiters are doing their best, but they should be more numerous, really. The soups were much-much better at the pool bar at lunch time than at the restaurant at dinner, we loved the lentil one!The cherry on top of the cake: the night shows! The Michael Jackson impersonator was simply amazing, one of the best ever seen. And the magic show done by the two youg ladies was very engaging. Overall, it has the best infinity swimming pool ever, lovely night shows and a very kind and hard-working staff.

As per the other reviews, food is excellent, hotel is clean and well run. There are Insufficient staff in the bar in the evening....they are run off their feet and need more hands. Have been getting quite frustrated with the phrase "is not all inclusive". Snack bar at the upper pool won't serve food to all-inc customers, ice cream and even a milkshake for the kids "Is not on all inclusive". Perhaps time the hotel started using the more honest phrase of "almost-inclusive" before you pay, and not telling you everyday after.

We had a lovely week. Our room was a bit noise in the evening if sitting on the balcony and the service for drinks was very slow. Needed more staff on or 2 on the bar so you could go and get your own drink. I did like the fact the towels were moved of the beds at the pool if left to long.

Beautiful hotel with large clean rooms. Balconies all look over the sea and the staff can't do enough for you. Beautiful beech close by but it's back up a very steep hill to get back to the hotel. Still. Very beautiful. Xx
The location was good. The hotel stands at halfway off the top of a cliff. The view is quite spectacular to the Amadores Beach below. Staff is friendly and polite, and everyone says "hello" to the guests. WiFi is pretty reliable, the food diversity is good, and the swimming pool is quite nice (can be a bit chilly still by the end of May).

Cannot recommend enough!Reception day and night staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Happy to go above and beyond.Rooms are big, comfortable and have everything you need.Maids do an excellent job cleaning and very accommodating with requests. We wanted 2 still waters every day and only had to ask once and received this for full week.All of the cleaners around the hotel and pool area are first class and not one single one would ignore you when you pass, always a smile or a greeting.Restaurant and bar staff are fantastic, friendly inviting and accommodating to every request. Remembering you order from day to day is an extra special touch and many have that ability.Pool staff and lifeguards are great. Patryk was amazing, great fun, entertaining and willing to change things around so everyone can take part. Games and activities were plentiful and varied.The evening entertainment was very poor and definitely needs some attention, I only enjoyed 2 nights out of the whole week. Maybe a compere to get the night started and crowd involved would be an idea.A massive thank you to all the staff involved behind the scenes in the kitchen for amazing, fresh and varied food every morning, lunchtime and evening and well presented and also to every staff member that are also behind the scenes who have a very important part in making guests have the best holiday possible.A beautiful hotel with spectacular views of Amadores Beach. We will definitely be returning soon.Thank you!

it's only my second day staying here, but I think the verdict for me is clear.- great location, closest to Amadores beach among all other hotels around- very friendly staff- great room with spacious sea view balcony- last but not least, omg I love the food. balanced and tasty. I stayed at various all inclusive 4/5 stars hotels in the past, but here the food stands out for me.easy 5 star.

A very nice hotel with super nice, professional staff. Two swimming pools, decks everywhere overlooking the sea. I think all rooms have a sea view balcony, many with a glass wall. The main dining room for breakfast & all-inclusive pkg meals is very very busy but it is well-staffed and waiting at the buffet is always short. Or there is an excellent restaurant with top cuisine dishes, outdoor tables with views of the Amadores beach, a reservation is obligatory. Midday there is a daily free water aerobics course in the main pool (one side facing the sea is infinity), it's best to get to the pool areas as early as possible to find available chaise lounges & umbrella. Free pool towels are at the reception. Next to the main pool is a cafeteria style restaurant/bar with basic fare, next to the upper pool is a bar with snacks. Family friendly with ample children's play areas. All in all a very nice and fairly affordable hotel experience with smiling staff faces.

Location Location Location second to none. Views brilliant hotel immaculate large rooms. Daily entertainment was fun for everyone including night time too. The guy in the day was so warm and friendly and most importantly inclusive of everyone. Special thanks to bar staff who remembered your order before you had time to say it. Evening meals weren’t the best with not a lot of choice but everything else made up for that for me. Would I go again? Without a shadow of a doubt

Faultless. Lovely, good size room, beautiful view, amazing infinity pool, the buffet offers something for everyone even fussy people like myself, food at the pool was also excellent, prices very reasonable for what isn't included, a short walk from the beautiful beach (take a snorkel the rocks provide a habitat for some lovely fish). There is a Spar and bus stop very close by. All of the staff were exceptional, friendly, happy, and very helpful. Didn't want to leave and will hopefully return in the not to distant future.

The room is spacious and big with a nice balcony. The shower is not so fun. Electricity outlets are missing for both side of the bad.Pools in the hotel are nice and there are many places to lay down to sunbathe. Food in the breakfast is good you have many things to choose from although it is not perfect. Every night they have musical shows but the performance isn't great.

Amazing hotel!! First time ever here for my mums 50th birthday and everyone went above and beyond to make it perfect. Never seen such a spectacular view and they upgraded us to the highest suite which was so kind!! The staff members such as Manuel Delgado Ramos work so extremely hard to make sure we have everything we need!! I would 1000% recommend this hotel 😍

We decided to go here for our honeymoon after spending a few days in Las Palmas.The positives: location is great and overlooks the ocean. The housekeeping and kitchen staff and incredibly nice and friendly.Negatives: alcohol in Spain is very cheap yet the hotel was incredibly miserly about the ‘all inclusive’ package offered by the hotel. The amount of times we heard ‘that’s not included in the all inclusive package’ at the hotel was astonishing. Having stayed in another all inclusive in Mexico, we were shocked by how limited our choices were for getting drinks during the day and that they had a pool bar that charged for drinks. The main pool bar is very understaffed and drinks are watery. Also the complimentary bottle of ‘champagne’ or ‘cava’ in the room is an awful 5% sweet sparkling wine.On the second to last day, my husband fell extremely ill from what we believe is salmonella or other food poisoning from the buffet or grill. It has now been over a week and he is still unwell and will be getting tests done at the doctor to ensure he didn’t catch anything too serious.To summarize - I recommend the hotel for the location but do not at all recommend the all inclusive package and wouldn’t recommend this as a honeymoon hotel. The housekeeping and kitchen staff work very hard but the management tries to cut corners and reduce costs where they can, which is insulting for the price we paid.

A nice enough hotel, only stayed for a night but our room seemed a little dated and not that clean, the AC was also broken. Also found the first set of key cards for our room didn't work which seemed to happen to quite a few people we knew that were also staying in the hotel. On the positives, it seemed to be in a great location as the beach was a short walk away, the views from the pool were fantastic and seemed to have good facilities including a spa and a few restaurants to choose from. The staff are very friendly and helpful. If the room was better and the AC working then definitely a four star.

Nothing to complain about. Exceptional food (one of my best hotel experience so far), great facilities, good spa and room. Most of the staff is super friendly. Beach is close by, bit of walking. Superb view from room. If I have to say any negative, it is that the outside pools are relatively cool, and that the extra bed in the room should be more comfortable. Great experience nevertheless, and I definitely recommend it.

They offered a large breakfast, but the quality of the products was not so good. The rooms are full of old furniture, and two spring mattresses for couples. Lifts not working properly (some of them were out of the service during our stay). Pool & SPA are open only from 8 AM to 6 PM which is a joke. In the room, there is a coffee table which is a home for ants. The ventilation that was supposed to work automatically was not in working order and when it was working it was very noisy. Same with the AC (very old, noisy) and it wasn't clean so we had immediately the feeling that polluted air enters the room. The room was supposed to be soundproofed, yet I could hear a guest snoring in the next room all night.In summary, someone once invested a lot of money in this place, but now you get the feeling that they are just cutting off coupons. I will never come back here and I cannot recommend this hotel even to my biggest enemy.

Great place for family or couple vacation. Nice and clean rooms, on the shadow side of the bay. The all inclusive menu is not that excellent, but meets the common standard for those kind of hotels. The service however is excellent.Only real problem during our stay was the "reservation" of sunbeds. The hotel should be more strict.

Not sure where to start, as everything is 100 percent. Staff are very good, specially in the restaurant, they so efficient and friendly. Price not expensive. Spa facilities amazing good. Everything is so clean. Buffet is different everyday. Parking is very easy. The famous beach is just 10 mins walk and the SUNSET is a must🥰 we will be back for sure. Try it yourself because too many good stuff there!

In love with the place!You wake up in a good sized bedroom, in a great bed, open the curtains and look out across the beautiful Amadores beach. Following a delicious breakfast with so many choices to suit everyone, you can then choose from the breath-taking infinity pool or go directly to the superb beach, which is only a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel. There are many great restaurants along the beach in which to eat lunch, but we were always careful not to ruin our appetite for our evening meal.The reason for writing my first ever review is out of respect for the quality of food provided by what can only be described as amazing chefs. Even more so when considering they are catering for many people choosing to eat at a variety of different times. Yes the hotel is immaculately clean, yes all the staff are wonderfully friendly and professional, but it was the quality, taste and variety of food which really stood out.Amadores is a very beautiful and peaceful place to enjoy your vacations, enhanced by a truly wonderful dining experience. This was our third stay at this particular hotel and hopefully we will get to visit many more times yet.A Superb Present in Gran Canaria! Thank you so much!

Great service, friendly and fast to respond to any needs. Most of the staff could talk or understand more then two languages. The food on the buffets vary daily. Our room had a beautiful view of the beach and enough space to relax. Only minus point: the structure of the building is kinda complex. Don't know how often we were on the wrong floor searching for something 😂

Great hotel with wonderful views & a great location. Without doubt the staff at this hotel are it's biggest asset. Everyone of them helpful & cheerful. Look out for the singing waiter at breakfast! We upgraded to all inclusive for an extra €29 per day which we saw as good value. Great food in the dining room. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Myself and my wife had a well deserved break here. We had been to the Amadores sister hotel and as this hotel was a higher star rating we thought we would give it a try.We asked for a quiet room and we’re given a quiet room at the far end of block one. The room was a very good size (I use a wheelchair- but didn’t need an adapted room at the time).The balcony had a somewhat obscured view due to the shape of the stonework.Whilst the room was quiet, there was a lot of loud music heard from the bars in the bay below, this could be heard from our room.Staff were mostly friendly and helpful and Yanira in the restaurant looked after us. Manuel a waiter in the restaurant was amusing with his cheerful singing and welcoming manner.Entertainment was terrible, they have a large room/bar for entertainment but it was just so hot in there and felt like there was no air conditioning. It was awful to see the performers playing to almost empty room. In our experience the entertainment lets the hotel down and I felt strange going to a hotel where people are playing cards trying to amuse themselves when there is quite embarrassing for the hotel.Caution because of Covid was adhered to strictly which was a good thing and we felt safer there than in the UK.They have a piano and a small bar in the large/reception/lobby area. This was not in use and had we known it may have influenced our decision with hotel choice as we liked this feature of their sister hotel.The hotel is up a steep hill and whilst they have a lift down, this was out of action two days and so I tried to get up in my electric wheelchair. My chair is a powerful top of the range chair, but the hill was too much for it. It is/would be very hard for people to walk up and down it all the time, unless they were super fit of course.

Fabulous views.Good breakfast. Nice walk to the beach but uphill all the way back. Lifts are glass so if you struggle with heights you will need to take the stairs. Lovely beach and some good local restaurants. Had bed and breakfast so no idea what dinner is like.

We are quite satisfied on our stay in the resort. The view was amazing everyday and we cannot get use to it. Very peaceful place and we had a pleasant stay. There was a day when i get a survey form and ask to answer some questions and wrote that we got a 2 single beds and i keep on falling in the middle... When i came back to take shower in the afternoon and lay down to relax, i found out that the gap is gone!!!! It was exhilarating❤️🥰!!!!!!!

Just spent one week, all inclusive. The views from the infinity pool are amazing and the staff are all helpful and English speaking. The evening was very quiet, and just singers as entertainment, which meant the evenings were quite flat. The food was fine, but only 1 bar to get a drink from, which meant there was usually a wait. Overall we had a good time, and loved the spa and gym facilities 😌

We loved everything about Gloria, there was a huge variety of food with plenty of vegetarian options and the staff was very friendly and professional. The views from the infinity pools are breathtaking!We were concerned about some bad reviews but when during our whole stay we realised that they weren’t even close to the truth. The rooms are comfortable, a/c works well.The only inconvenience is that you have to take a lift to the beach and then walk for a while. It’s worth the experience tho😍

I loved the stunning sea view from my room, the room was very spacious, clean, and cozy.The food was absolutely amazing, so many options to choose from and also very fresh.The infinity pool was amazing and not too crowded.The cons:There wasn't a plug next to the bed, which is VERY annoying if you want to charge your phone and use it when you're in bed.SPA and pool closing times- closing them at 6 o'clock is quite early, they could at least keep them open until 8 'clock.The toiletries in the bathroom...In a 4 star hotel, I would expect to find a shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion, here there was only a 2in1 shower gel and shampoo (not of the highest quality).Overall, an enjoyable experience, I would definitely go back!

We spent there two weeks in Aug. so we had enough time to form an opinion about the hotel.Pros: stunning location, infinity pool together with a view over the bay, spacious & clean rooms, good breakfast.Cons: rude and not professional staff at the reception desk and pool, limited number of sun beds together with the strange rule of booking the bed with a towel, the quality of food for dinner.If you look for good 4 star hotel I wouldn’t recommend Gloria Palace Royal.

I stayed at this hotel and I can only say I am very satisfied. He justified all 4 stars. Starting with the breakfast which was varied and there was something for everyone there is also an outdoor pool for adults and a small one for children who have beautiful view of the sea. Every day they cleaned our room and tightened the beds and we had clean towels. The only drawback was that they gave us beds that were separated in between and I was quite annoyed because every now and then I moved the mattress and fell hole in between but I survived 4 nights well. I would really like to recommend them to all my friends because they are the best Hotel in Gran Canaria

Really comfortable hotel in a beautiful but quiet location with nice infinity pool. Food is decent, more or less what you can expect from a buffet restaurant but with a lot of variety throughout the week. Short downhill walk to the beach. Staff seems a bit rushed, but friendly.

Amazing views and friendly staff cloud the reality. Food was sometimes perfect but most of the time overcooked or undercooked if you chose the meat which is to be cooked in front of you, which on the second night gave me food poisoning so I stopped choosing it after that and the rest of the dinners went okay. Kids pool had missing and broken tiles from the floor which could easily cut a child’s foot, but they simply put a slide over it but the slide can easily be moved by kids 🤔, reception staff are useless, had two emergencies in the room with our baby but both times no one answered so had to run and get the lifeguard, also found one young male to be rude and uncaring on reception even with a 1 year old and then finally the room. Well it was layers out well and great views but the balcony handrail from a high up floor was wobbly, fans were old and made horrible noises so we turned them off and then they leaked water, the bathroom ceiling was in need of plastering and one electrical socket from the bedroom was missing. And this was a suite, not one of their standard rooms. So the three stars are for the views and catering staff.

The view from the hotel room is amazing - straight to Amadores beach (the best of the Island to me). The staff was incredible! They brought sparkling wine and a piece of cake in my room for my birthday!And the best is the infinite pool 😍I heavily recommend this hotel!

Loved the Gloria Royal, so much so I stayed for nearly 2 months! Lovely view of the beach from the room. WiFi is solid (good). Restaurant food was good (and I'm vegetarian).My only feedback would be to tell the restaurant managers in suits to relax a bit; they seem a bit tense and serious (guys, it's a buffet at a hotel, not an MI5 counter-intelligence unit!)Vera at the front desk was especially helpful and friendly. Really nice lady. She made me feel so welcome here. I've seen other reviews mention her; I can totally understand now.

+ Nice hotel, big rooms.+ Beautiful sunset pool.+ Breakfast has a good selection.+ Soft beds- Road below hotel can be bothersome.- Hotel has an "All inclusive". That is not good for local businesses and restaurants.

Great location and rooms with a stunning sea view. Exceptionally well maintained with good dining options. Amazing infinity pool. Full range of Spa treatments available.Not so good! It is hilly not great if you have mobility issues, smokers around the pool and sun loungers with no respect for non smokers. Ignorant queue jumpers when waiting to be seated in restaurant.

Amazing hotel. Our room and balcony overlooking the sea are both spacious and spotless. There is never a shortage of sunbeds and the pool the best we have ever experienced in a hotel. One is spoilt for choice at the variety of food.The staff are very friendly and helpful and Manuel the singing waiter brings a smile to everyone's lips.We'll be back next year!

Very good service. We booked a double room, but due to water damages, we were upgraded in a Suite. The room was clean, comfortable and well located in the hotel. It was a bit far from the pool, but very quiet. We enjoyed an astonishing sea view from the terrace. The food was good, but a bit oily... One tiny bad point: knives don't cut very well...We also had dinner at Kaia Restaurant. Our gastronomic dinner was delicious, we can see how good the products are! The waiter was very professional and careful. I think it was the best experience we had in this hotel
