Having read the many negative reviews, we still decided to give this hotel a try. And we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff worked hard and were most helpful - the reception staff, the waiters and waitresses in the dining room, and the room cleaners all made efforts to satisfy our needs. Yes, one person did frequently double-up as bar-person... More

Booked this as a last minute holiday through a well known travel firm. We were sold it as all inclusive but as previous reviews have stated there were no snacks or ice creams for children during the day, meals were at set times & were rather limited in choice. We arrived late at night having had a delayed flight &... More

I was in such a mess after reading the reviews of this hotel that I tried to change my hotel a week before. After being quoted £350 to change I decided to keep our reservation and make the best we could. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and cleaned daily. The beds were new and clean. The pool... More

First let me start by saying this is the first time I have ever been compelled to put a review on here and I have been to some terrible places in my time - but this takes the biscuit. Firstly we arrived at 9.10pm and were told the meals finished at 9 but there was a McDonalds up the road!... More

Just returned from two weeks at Palmeras Playa (which we were dreading after reading negative reviews) and had a great holiday. Yes, the hotel is in need of refurbishment but was not as bad as it was made out. Our room was cleaned daily and towels and bedding were changed. This is definitely a European hotel which caters mainly for... More

I normally don’t believe some of the bad reviews I read and always tend to look for the good points. With this hotel however, please believe the bad points as all true and swap hotels if it's not too late! I especially find it hard to believe the good ones from people when we were there, when I heard nobody... More

If I had read all of the reviews I would have dreaded every moment of my stay however it was pretty enjoyable. The apartments are close to the beach however we only went there on own last day as we were being picked up pretty early on the Sunday. Breakfast is nothing to rave about and they really need to...

Good points - this hotel is central and less than 2 minutes from both the beach and bars. The food selection is good for lunch and dinner, offering fish, meat, soup and good selection of salad items. All of the rooms have a balcony, a good size bedroom and bathroom with plenty of storage space. Complimentary shower gel/soap. Rooms are... More
