Lovely Clean Hotel
Annie, Manchester UK
This is a very clean and friendly hotel right on the beach front. There are two swimming pools, one ocean facing and the other at the back of the hotel. Both have plenty of room to sunbathe with ample number of sun beds. Our room was adequate and was cleaned every day. The staff were all friendly and attentive. Good selection of food at meal times to suit all tastes. This is the third time we have stayed here and will be back again. It is only 10 minutes from the airport on the number 21 bus and there are lots of bars and restaurants in the area.
The best thing about my stay was...Being able to find space around the pool for sunbathing

I have just come back from a weeks stay in this perfect hotel, I am a single mum and took my only child who's 4, I choose the hotel because of the location, everything is on your door step, airport is 2mins away, beach is 2mins away it was absolutley perfect! Rooms were spotless, food was great, two pools! We really enjoyed our stay! Tips... bus number 23 right outside the hotel takes you to aqualand for only €1.50pp and is about a 15min drive, we visited the waterpark twice as it was so easy and affordable! Also the aquarium is easy to walk to, even with a 4year old, takes about 10mins slow walking! Also there is a bar called 'Palm Beach' on the beach front close to the hotel that does amazing cocktails and affordable food, we went here everyday, sometimes twice a day, its run by a group of fellas who are the most friendly, attentive people going, quick service, friendly staff and its right on the beach so you can enjoy a lovely view with an outstanding cocktail! We can't wait to visit this hotel again, everything about our stay was perfect!

Lovely hotel, brilliant location. We had a suite as we had three children. The living room is the other bedroom which is not clear when booking. So there are made up beds for the duration of the stay. The plus is there is a tv and balcony in the bedroom. The bathroom is accessible from both rooms. Fabulous rainfall shower. We were B&B and the breakfast was great.
The best thing about my stay was...Location, stunning views and brilliant room.

Mrs P from Manchester UK, Manchester UK
This Hotel is conveniently located on the beach and a 10 minute ride from the airport on the 21 bus. There is very little noise from aircraft. The Hotel itself is clean with a range of facilities, lovely lounge area, separate TV room and lounge. There are two pool areas and there was plenty of sunbeds to go round.The food is very good with plenty to choose from at meal times. There is enough variety to please all palettes. The bedroom was spacious with a TV a mini fridge and a lovely balcony with excellent views. The staff are pleasant and helpful. We will definitely be going back to this hotel.
The best thing about my stay was...The best thing about our stay was the standards in the hotel in all areas.

Food Luke warm at best
Janice, Gloucestershire UK
Our main complaint was the foods was good but not very warm, putting warm food on cold plates did not help. Would have been nice to have a diabetic choice of food. Staff were all very friendly the hotel was very clean. Pools were also very clean and kept tidy. Would we return, maybe. It was also good that the hotel supplied secure parking.room was lovey but as the partitions were low neighbours could look into our room.
The best thing about my stay was...Hotel very clean and tidy

Good but ...
Tanja CRE, Belgium, Antwerp
If you compare the price with the quality it is not worth 4*. Breakfast OK but eggs badly cooked by the chefs. Only on Sunday there is cava available (should be every day if you stay in a 4* hotel). Dinner OK, lots of choise and variety. One of the lifts nearly all the time out of order. Animation : zero. Bar in the hotel not cosy.
The best thing about my stay was...Location, friendly staff

Weather not so good - Hotel GREAT
Eibhlin Ni Sionnach, Dublin
On arrival my first impression was the photos didn't do the hotel justice, the outside looked very impressive. The reception area was even more impressive. No problems checking in and straight to my room. Room was lovely, view was superb, balcony quite big. Enjoyed my stay in El Cid but would like to see Diabetic selection of preserves and sugar free products in dining room. Am mobility impaired and use a mobility scooter and had no problem getting in & out of hotel.
The best thing about my stay was...Staff in dining room & bar very helpful & friendly. Hotel well maintained & I hope to return later this year for a longer stay.
