Mostly caters for elderly Spanish but if you’re prepared to eat out now and again and look for entertainment elsewhere then it’s a good enough base to explore area. Some nice bars right on the doorstep and McDonalds a stones throw away. Clean, quiet and food average if you’re

This hotel was advertised as a two star hotel. I had read the reviews before booking directly with the hotel so I was familiar with issues that people had raised. Checking in was easy. We paid for a safe (€3 per night) and a fridge (€40 per week). The lady on reception had good

A corner room with view of pool, sea and marina. So on the left if looking at hotel from street. About half way up will avoid most of the road level noise and most of the roof bar noise. Unless you like that type of noise. The noise of people enjoying themselves can be pleasant. If your not staying in high season the roof bar may close earlier.

Hotel in good location for plenty of restsurants.My wife is in wheelchair & we stroll down to harbour in about 30 min.The road drops down to a promenade ,beach & sea on 1 side with loads of restaurants on left.Tacos are 7gr8 euros,but worth the walk.When you come out of hotel reach McDonald turn right then right again,about 10 min walk a large supermarket sells everything.(modern)

Dear Guests, Thanks for your comments. We are very sorry to read you are not happy with our hotel. Unfortunately, we do not agree with your opinion, as all our MedPlaya staff are biligual and above all the entertainment team, who speak both English and Spanish all the time (even some shows are performing only in English sometimes). In reference to our buffet, we are trying to reach the satisfaction of all our customers, offering a varied Mediterranean buffet for all our international guests. We truly apologize for not having satisfied your needs. Kind regards.

"For a good view request a room on level 4 or above."
"Rooms very clean and spacious. Rooms facing the pool are very hot due to the sun being on that side but wonderful. Excellent room service."
"ask for a pool view above floor 4"
"The entertaining goes on until 11.00 pm so an higher room would be better"
"Pool side rooms get the afternoon sun, the higher the better so floors 5 to 7 are good"
