We stayed in a one bed room unit which was small but had everything you would need. It was basic accommodation, clean and well kept. Only problem was the mattress on the sofa bed was very very uncomfortable... but as soon as I spoke to reception we were given a topper and that solved the problem. Staff were friendly and... More

Wonderful location and surroundings with walking distance to local shops, beach access right on our doorstep. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and washing machine and drier which was very convenient. Our apartment had beach views with a balcony. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff on duty were wonderful, friendly and very helpful. Would... More

Thanks for your review, it certainly concerned the Management and staff of the resort that you felt unwelcome however they have a duty of care to ensure fire regulations as to how many people occupying each unit are met and certainly they feel a larger apartment would have been more suitable for your group. The resort prides itself on being... More

Definitely not family friendly what so ever. A waste of money and basically a resort for the elderly with bad attitudes towards families. Not once did myself or family feel welcomed at this resort. Tiny rooms and over priced food. We will never visit again or recommend to family and friends.

We again stayed at this resort as it would be so hard to find better, although it is an older building style, the refurbishment is certainly 2013 and very nice. The beach at the "back door" is superb, and with a short walk to the village shops, and just a bit further to supermarkets, the area is suitable for a... More

We stayed at Don Pancho for a week, in one of the yet to be refurbished units overlooking the pool. My husband had been here numerous times, but this was my first visit. The rooms were wonderful and exactly what we needed. Yes, the furniture was not brand new, but this is a beach resort - everything was clean and... More

We took the opportunity to spent a week at Don Pancho Resort. The Mexican architecture of the resort gives the appearance of the place being somewhat dated. However the interior of this 1970s complex is being modernised. Our fully self contained, super sized unit has been recently renovated and was excellent for a week of relaxing. The resort is right...

Having read some reviews we were little anxious about choosing the resort. But we were thrilled with our apartment (42) which was refurbished to a high standard and a lovely view over the pool and golf course and a great balcony to watch the sunset from. The lack of a lift isn't ideal but not a real problem. The staff... More
