The location is brilliant: less than five minutes walk to the coach station, the beach and cute local shops. The facilities were brilliant: breakfast included had a large variety, bar was always open, they had showers and a room to keep stuff in for after we checked out as our flight wasn't until the evening. The staff were so friendly and helpful, we kept asking hundreds of questions about places to go, prices etc. They spoke very good spanish and english and always smiled. It was big and clean. Free wifi in the bar, have to pay for other areas of the hotel but not really necessary. Only down side was that the views were of neighbouring buildings.
"Great hotel for both - young people and families."
This hotel is in the very heart of the centre of the town. There are many bars and clubs just outside the hotel. Very close to the beach (about 5min walk). I have stayed with my 2 daughters (9 and 17) for 10 days. They try to alocate (depends from availability) all young and "noisy" people on the bottom floors and give a bit more quiet rooms on the top for families. Despite quite loud and very alive neighborhood it was quiet in the room after closing the door to the terrace. Rooms are equipped with air conditioning very cleaned and well maintained. Interior is a bit outdated - I would say late '70 but in good conditions. Reception staff is very friendly and very helpful. They are making an effort and seem care about guests.
I can surely recommend this hotel for short and long stay. It brings good memories.
Its an amazing hotel, close to beach, good breakfast, polite staff, atm, swimming pool and comfy rooms with amazing view from balconey. Best part was the amazing housekeeping...too good I was very pleased. The only thing I would like to suggest it..please add some english channels for the TV...but yea we out there to see the city not TV but still it wont hurt to watch some english movie in at night...ntng else.. awsome awsome hotel. Thank you Hotel Samba
Basically, it is a very small hotel; however, some rooms seem to be larger than others. Guests were very noisy, and complaining to the front desk did not resolve the issue. Breakfast, is continental (no hot food) but it is all you can eat with good Italian coffee. The mattress was in extreme poor condition, the metal springs were poking at me not matter what part of the mattress you use, I think they served their purpose and needs to be replaced.

The hotel was nice and clean, very basic in the rooms but that was as i expected being a budget hotel. Public areas's were all very nice, food was good. Outdoor pool was a bit cold for me, but the indoor pool was lovely. Being quite close to the main street the streets just outside could get a little noisy at night but to be honest I expected that too. All in all a great stay.
