The Ponderosa was exactly as it should be: not too loud, not too quiet, clean, had a good mixture of guest types. The food was decent. The drink choices were decent. The rooms and the pool areas were clean and had plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas and inflatables. We were a party of two 20-odd yo women on a reasonably... More

The local beer was very nice and you got it in a pint jug if you wanted so you... More

some people have complained about this hotel and in some cases quite rightly so, however we stayed AInc. for three weeks in Jan 2014 and what was lacking in the accommodation was made up by the well kept and clean public areas which to be honest is where most of your time is spent. We found the staff to be... More

Stayed here in October 2013. Arrived after midnight on a 7-day all-inclusive package. Had to vacate room by noon as expected on last day, but were also denied the 7th lunch and dinner. They explained the day is noon-to-noon, so tough luck for arriving late. Never had this issue with other all-inclusive deals on the Costas. Food was OK, but... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a friendly lady at reception who was very apologetic that our travel agent hadn't told us that we were unable to check... More
