In one of the narrow street that crisscross the old town, and only five minutes walk from the port, the beach and the town centre.
The forty-three bedrooms offer a multiplicity of choices as far as bed combinations go. Bright bedcovers and paintings add colour to the white painted rooms, and with the resent refurbishment all of them have air-conditioning, flat-screen TV and a safe, and the en-suite bathrooms include a hair-dryer as standard. The rooms at the front of the building over-look the pedestrian Calle Loretto and have a small balcony. During the summer months the street is practically one long terrace full of café tables and chairs. Great for people watching, but if you want a quiet night it’s best to ask for something at the rear.
A large internal patio is a lovely place to take a drink or a meal during the summer months, and if you feel like joining in, the social salon at the back of the patio hosts tai-chi and Latin and line dancing classes. The loungers on the roof terrace are the place to pick up a tan if the beach doesn’t draw you.
Eating and drinking
Connected to the hotel is a bar/restaurant that offers good value local dishes in a neighbourhood ambience. A simple Spanish breakfast is also served there.
Other than the rooftop terrace and the classes the hotel doesn’t offer any other leisure facilities than a table tennis table, but can arrange for bike hire, sailing classes, etc.
Very cheerful and helpful service from Douglas and Matty Horne, the owners, and their family. They are a mine of information and can arrange almost anything to make your stay enjoyable.
