    Great hotel and location

    Everything was great. Loved the hotel particularly the food and bar service. Room was extremely comfortable. All your staff were friendly and offered good service. Loved the location. Close to shops, bars and dunes. Only three minor negatives which I hope are constructive. 1. Entertainment - animation were good but why couldn’t we have more groups/singers. We had one - the Tina Turned experience - who were brilliant. Would have been great to have had at least 2 or 3 acts like this during the week. 2. Hospitality room - broken shower, no hooks for clothes. Quite difficult to get showered and dressed. 3. Would have liked some outdoor space without smokers. The upstairs bar terrace was a lovely area for pre dinner drink but not pleasant as a non smoker. Everything else was great.

    4 day escape

    The hotel is recently renovated and overall quite nice. You notice its age in some areas, particularly around the pool and halls, but the rooms are exceptionally large and well designed,with nice balconies. I did see there are ants in some of the rooms, mine had many on the floor, but I don't know how much the hotel can do to avoid this. The food was average quality, but there were some nice dishes and variety most days. If you ask for a higher floor the views are quite nice. It's overall a good option with a central location by the Dunes and nightlife

    Correcto

    Hotel correcto. Es verdad que por la crisis sanitaria que estamos viviendo hay ciertos aspectos que no se pueden valorar de la misma manera que en circunstancias normales. La habitación muy amplia, moderna, limpia aunque tuvimos un problema con el aire acondicionado que no funcionaba y hacía muchísimo calor. La piscina se quedaba pequeña teniendo en cuenta el distanciamiento obligado. La comida del todo incluido muy chatarra, y la del restaurante correcta, sin más. Lo mejor de nuestra estancia fue el personal del hotel. Muy atentos y agradables hablaras con quien hablaras.

    Eine tolles Familienhotel

    Ein schickes Hotel im guten Zustand. Begrüßt wird man mit einem Temperaturscan :) (Corona) .Check In geht relativ fix, die Speisen sind gut nur deŕ ein oder andere Cocktail könnte besser sein. Wer gerne lange auf ist und deswegen lange schlafen möchte ist hier allerdings etwas verkehrt dank Poolprogramm. Sei es Sport oder Tanzanimationen die nicht ungehört bleiben. Für Familien ein gutes Hotel, für Feierwütige mit ausschlafen als Ziel eignen sich andere Hotels.

    Godt 4 stjernet hotel.

    Dejligt hotel med god og meget bredt udvalg på buffėn. Gode pools og fine snacks ved poolen. Pænt og rent overalt på hotellet. Kun det varme vand drillede når man var i bad. Det blev koldere når flere brugte varmt vand samtidigt.

    Abora Catarina

    Nu var vi nödgade att bo på Abora Catarina 1 natt pga sandstormen stängde flygplatsen. Vår vistelse (1 v) var annars på Abora Continental. Abora Catarina var ett gammalt slitet hotell i jämförelse. Den skulle definitivt tjänat på att fräschas upp, framför allt badrummen. Just skicket på badrummen känns som att man är på ett 2 stjärniga hotell. Maten och personalen var däremot jättebra.
