    Fantastic value for money. All the rooms really do have a sea view, and overlook the enormous pool. They are large with en suite bathrooms, a good supply of hot water, and excellent water pressure. The staff are, without exception, wonderful, and the restaurant on a terrace with sea views serves good food at reasonable prices. The whole grilled fish is particularly good. This hostel is better than a lot of 3 star hotels! Our only quibble was a broken shower hose which was replaced immediately.

    I stayed at the Almarsa Resort for 4 nights. My first two nights, I shared the room with a fellow backpacker. The last 2 nights, I had the room to myself. The room was basic but clean. The staff were all so lovely and accommodating. The pool was nice to jump into. The sea is just over the road. Breakfast was basic but fine. Food in the restaurant was lovely! There is a dive resort attached to the hotel. I completed 3 dives with them at a good price. Would definitely recommend and will stay again

    I loved Al Marsa! It's not fancy - it is very much a family business and a little rough around the edges but the rooms are clean and the linens fresh. Everyone who works there is so lovely and accommodating and they will help you with whatever you need, including the latest advice on how to get around and what to see and do (and how much it'll cost). You must do at least a "Try Dive" while there - it's incredible and great value. The dive instructors are AMAZING and you will not regret it.

    I loved the location of this place. It is away from the busy city and you can enjoy the beach more. We did a try dive through the hostel and had an amazing experience. There were very few people at the hostel which might be due to the fact that it is still the low season. The only things that I did not like are that there was rarely any hot water and our shower at one point had no water. Also there was a dead fly on the bed and ants on the floor, and the comforters looked a bit dirty.

    Almarsa is a quite nice place. The most positive about the hotel is the location close to the beach where you can snorkel and swim. There is a diving center at the hotel and there are several good dive sites close to the hotel. Also there is a nice swimming pool. On the negative side, the rooms are a bit worn down. The cleaning of the rooms, the breakfast and the maintenance of the property are not so good and they could easily be be improved if the staff did their job properly.

    It’s far from the city center but is probably one of the best beach areas. I booked a 4 people dorm and I had the room just for myself. Breakfast was ok, not many choices.

    Lovely staff; good breakfast provided with the room. This resort feels a bit like a work in progress; with some finishing touches to make it feel more homely it would be a fantastic place to stay. Lovely sea views. Onsite dive shop with snorkeling and diving available from the shore so it is super convenient for that
