This well hidden gem on The Mar Chrystal, right on the beach, is a wonderful refuge for those recuperating from illness or hospitalisation,or who just want a quiet stress-relieving few days away from the " hustle and bustle",or doing the Power Boat Licence Course in the nearby harbour! There is a restaurant-bar attached to the complex and a supermarket next door! Each unit is self contained with a well equipped kitchen and all the Mod Cons! You can relax in the sun lounge overlooking the sea or stroll along the promenade! Staff are friendly and helpful and go out of their way to help! Television and free wi-fi and ample parking were also a bonus!
Thank Paddy F

Loved this place. Accomodation first class and lovely staff and service. Amazing views and right next to a nice sandy beach. Very peaceful few days. Local restaurants very friendly and were great with our 1 year old daughter.

Been there a few times in all seasons. Superb location but the bill always comes with the stuff we haven’t consumed. And they rectify. Thanks to the free data roaming in the EU, we can look for alternative spots. Tried the Spanish shack at the end of the promenade. Good food and service is good if you can say a few words in Spanish.

The restaraunt was in a lovely location close to the beach and close to the supermarket, very clean & very well presented and set up (particularly for the World Cup) Staff were very friendly particularly Denisa who made our every visit a fantastic one, she always made sure we were happy with our food and our drinks and everything was to our desires. The English amongst the staff wasn’t always very good they found it hard to understand us but they often gave us a free drink because of our continued custom. The food was very tasty, always, particularly the Lasagne!! It was so delicious, highly recommend. Very reasonably priced for the portions of the food and excellent service from our favourite Denisa & co. This is our second year here, with an extra few days added on everything is close by, we stayed in Mar De Cristal which isn’t very far from the restaraunt and cafe. Thank you to all the staff for another wonderful visit!! (This includes the cafe)

Absolutely terrible, it should of stayed a secret, walls like paper so could hear everything from room above including children crying through the night, main problem was the slight small of sewer and a noisy air freshener put in the room to obviously hide the smell but kept going off every 10 minutes which was annoying beyond belief, also not as important but told 2 English tv channels and there were none, nobody on reception to sort the smell and noise out just a phone number to call which didn’t answer, booked in for two nights and left after one, receptionist on the following morning seemed disinterested and blamed the way the wind blows can make the room smell and can’t help people talking in other rooms so none of the problems there fault, even said I didn’t want the night we stayed refunding just the night we wouldn’t be staying and blankly refused to compromise and refund, there’s nicer and cheaper places to stay than here and we will not be returning!
