The reception staff are very helpful and friendly here. The hotel is nicely laid out, and in a very good location, and there are two pools but not enough sun loungers, most of which are broken. The children's area is very nice and safe. The hotel is in two sections and it looks like one section is being sold off.... More

Title says it all Fawlty towers without the humour. Filthy dirty, run down, no hot water, under staffed and woefully inadequate in all areas. Beds broken, showers not working, toilet cisterns smashed, patio doors that don't open, no working lights, loose wiring, broken kitchen cupboards, the list is endless! No entertainment, other than some guy called Porky murdering three Neil... More

Our hotel room was faultless, all the rooms were clean and cleaned every other day. Sorry room 1101 but I think we had the most hot water haha ;) Personally I thought the food was... More

This was my first experience at an all girls holiday and literally you get what you pay for.The downside to the checkin at Ponderosa is the €100 room deposite but this is only if you are in groups of young adults. The staff You can't complain about 3/4 of the staff as the are lovely and are always there to... More

Luckily, only booked for one night, stayed at another hotel, but booked this for the day to shower in and so kids could have a sleep, as we had a late flight so didn't stay overnight or use the facilities apart from an hour in the bar. The rooms was filthy, beds were clean and that was a relief, but... More

Upon my arrival at the ponderosa I was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome we received at the 24 hour reception. Having previously read all 200+ reviews before we travelled 'hotel for the homeless', 'don't go rosa' and 'hotel from hell'; we didn't know what to expect. You do however have to put a €100 deposit on the room when... More

Went here on a stag do recently and was basically all you needed for this purpose. A bed and a shower.. hotel was not as bad as made out to be on here, water was clean. Staff did seem to think the hotel was incredible and did not understand it was actually a cheap rubbishy hotel. Hotel was only 30... More

Well...I've been trying to decide what to say about The Ponderosa.A.Hotel. We stayed here for 10 days 21/7/14 to 31/7/14 on the All Inclusive basis. I've read all of the 228 reviews - most before we left - so I kind of knew what to expect before we got there. We were given room 819 - I believe because this... More

This trip was booked as a family holiday in January this year , after reading the early reviews it seemed an appropriate place for myself my wife our 2 children and my parents. Sometime between January and June this hotel took a downward slide . Due to a delay in flights we arrived at 22.15 after travelling all day we... More
