Very nice above a rock located hotel, but was already a bit old. Many of the rooms within the upper range were already a bit older and could be updated. The garden is very well maintained. The beach area is only about a staircase with many stairs accessible. This could be just returned for people, which are so good to foot, be very difficult. The beach area with the beach chairs was relatively small. The beach chairs were partly already very old and worn and partially very, very uncomfortable. Under the influence of the sea was in september sunbathing area ... not flat, but rather diagonally, which lie on the beach, with the time uncomfortable can. The water was very clean, but were in the bay many areas of some large stones in the water, which made swimming only in certain area at low tide and high tide makes possible. The staff at the beach was very helpful. The breakfast buffet is very rich, very large choice and with many fresh products. Through the half board we have every evening in the restaurant - there is only one restaurant. The food was very, very good. With half board there were changing menus - however the selection of dishes repeated after a week. But you can à la carte food. The prices are rather upscale. The service at night was sometimes overstrained, as the most guests due to the view and the sunset at the same time, appeared. On the nachschenken of the beverages you can quite unfortunately somewhat to wait. If you want a nice table right in front of the balcony with a great view of the sea, must then, if the restaurant opens in the evenings, since these tables very quickly occupied. The thalasso centre has a lot of choice and seemed very well kept. The staff is very friendly. There are many golf courses in the vicinity, the good reachable by taxi are. read hotel review

Vilalara resort: very good and was very expensive

  • August 2012
The hotel is very good. Extremely well is the situation of the pools at the cliff with views of the gorgeous beach. The rooms are 'average' and simple 5 star level. The bathrooms are very good as it is very spacious, huge sunroof, lounge, separate toilet and bidet, and large counter space. The service is excellent. The breakfast is very good but rather a good 4 star standard and the quality and quantity was not with german 5 star standard to keep up. Also my wife had unfortunately once a worm in the dried fruit. I am not certain, however ..., whether the avoidable. A point, which was not mentioned, the price-performance ratio. I do not know, whether specific information here is an intrusion, but the full marks there was not because of the extremely high price, the my benchmark higher. I would have for the paid rate comfortably in your german 5 stars superior as Bensberg Castle or breidenbacher hof quarter, with the lead time, which i had selected (3-4 months). But i found then for example the room a bit too usual. I like said not the hotel, because these are not also many hectares of area with a need to take care of, but a bit more than good 4 star standard. read hotel review

    The rooms are reasonably spacious, well maintained, but in a kind of simply furnished, the almost to a focus on cheap build out. Clear, the complex is huge, the rooms are not top-selling point as other hotels but overall they are then rather usual and on the same level as in very good 4 star houses in Germany or USA. A star more is for the bathroom, which through their commodiousness points.

    The area was unspectacular. One villa vita parc next door and the against that is rather shabby, the nearby place not very nice and was generally 3 star standard without attractive building. Fantastic is the path there on the cliffs. You should but no fear heights. Partly it is less than a meter wide at the side with wall and the other with 30 meters free fall without railings along ☺
