Hotel Sagitario Playa
Homely and personal option right in the heart of the resort a few min walk to the small sandy beach in one direction and the commercial centre in the other with its selection of shops, restaurants and bars.
A little dated in parts but this adds to the character in a strange way. Very much geared to adult guests as little here for children apart from a pool section. Couples will enjoy the peaceful pool area and relaxing under the shade of the trees.
Wide V-shaped 3-storey block with an un-painted concrete facade and a pillared entrance on a street corner. A few small shops and a car rental office are at street level. All of the rooms have a balcony.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Built Year: 1990
Bright central interior with pillars but generally quite ordinary. Long tidy mirrored lounge with a dual-sided bar and an entertainment stage at one end. Similarly unremarkable buffet restaurant with more awful copper-tinted mirrors in evidence.
Nicely protected rear grounds with trees on three side’s providing shade. Pleasant pool with palm tree islands and sunbeds with canopy parasols all around. Small snack bar building is at the poolside with some covered plastic seating. A tennis court is just across a tiny side street to the rear.
Area Type: On a narrow one-way tree-lined road in the centre of the resort diagonally opposite a small park. A taxi stop is 50 yds away and a local bus stops just a few yds away and operates to the old city, Ciudadela. Surrounded by low-rise residences and holiday accommodation. A small commercial centre with a number of bars, shops and restaurants is less than 5-min walk away.
Nearest beach: 300 yds (Cala Blanca)
