    Superb

    The rooms I had were quiet, clean and nicely presented, I enjoy the under-roof swiming pool and sauna, the staff was helpfull, friendly and very attentive. If I back to Campastilla, El Cid will be my first option.

    Fabulous

    Friendly helpful staff. Location to the beach and resort facilities. Clean comfortable rooms.

    Restaurant could get very busy at times, thought it was too small for the size of the hotel.

    Good

    Good location at this end of resort. Orientated to german market. Hotel staff helpful.

    As a solo traveller I had a small single bed in a very small room. Why charge a single supplement when a single bed is provided in a very small room?

    Very good

    As we have been coming to this hotel for some years now it is very good to receive a very friendly welcome from the staff. We enjoyed the food more this year than past.

    This is not necessary a complint but observations: Notice outside Dining Room mentions dress for Evening Meal but this does not seem to be policed inside the Dining Room - people sitting haviing there meal wearing caps and shorts does not go with the 4 star rating. The other observation is that the back pool area does not seem to be cleaned very regularly were the front pool area is swept every day.

    Location and pool area are reasons for booking this hotel. Otherwise it´s average.

    Staff was very big dissapointment. I would have expected friendly behaviour of a four star hotel staff. Especially reseptionists were quite rude and unfriendly. I didn't feel wellcome. Rooms weren´t as clean and tidy as I expected. For example I got unclean towels every day.

    Superb

    The location and the food were great. The staff was extremely helpful; I arrived very early and was allowed to check in immediately.

    I had very noisy neighbours -bad luck. Because of the thin walls, I had difficulties sleeping in.

    Very good

    Location superb for beach and nightlife. Restaurant staff very good - busy but friendly.

    Food not so great - bland. Very busy in mornings in restaurant. Reception staff unfriendly. Very thin walls - woken early each morning.

    The beach front location

    The decor in the room was old fashioned and was in need of ripping out. The bathroom has broken tiles on the walls and the shower was hanging off the wall. The toilet was in an alcove so when I squeezed pass to use it the metal toilet roll holder than was hanging off the wall cut open the top of my thigh (I'm a size 8 so this was not due to me being too big) We had no bath or hand towels in the room when we arrived. The breakfast was poor quality and if I had to stay more than two nights I would have demanded to be moved. I felt utterly ripped off at being charge £220 to stay for 2 nights. This is the worse hotel I have stayed in any where in Spain or its islands
