    We spent our evenings in nearby Peter B's Brewpub enjoying drinks and atmosphere. We liked the MAGNIFICENT view. Not far from The Dali Expo.

    The design and cleanliness of the spectacular premises. The perfect facilities and situation.

    They were on construction sites and they made you go through them. Breakfast was not included

    Perfect

    The hotel is very large, but you still feel comfortable because the layout and decor are well thought out. The rooms are very nice and the location is central, so restaurants and the sea can be easily reached on foot.

    The cost of underground parking. Our room was facing the street and was very noisy.

    The view and location is perfect.

    They were in repairs but it wasn't that bad. Just a little complex access with suitcases in the corridors

    Very good

    Dear staff, the hotel is very nice, but it's huge, so if there are more than two rooms booked, look for them nearby.

    There are some details, such as the bathroom, that make the hotel look old.
