When we got to the hotel, we were told where to go by a man who works the night shifts (forgotten his... More

Going to start this off by saying you get what you pay for, therefore arriving here we weren't expecting anything special. Also I am writing this waiting to leave. Arrived late at night, got told we could purchase drinks from the bar as the AI finishes at 22.30 but we didn't bother. Check in was easy enough. Purchased air con... More

I went to Hotel Despo with a friend for a girly holiday last October. We had just missed lunch when we arrived off the plane and without even having to ask the staff went to get us some food out. Our room was small and basic (you get what you pay for), but we didn't need anything fancy. It was... More

Before opening the door we were informed that we could change the room the next day if we wanted, which set the alarm bells ringing. On opening the door we were a bit shocked... More

A budget holiday so you get what you pay for! The staff we found (apart from George the evening bar man) were absolutely lovely to us and very helpful. Also be aware that there are no diet drinks as part of the AI package which as diabetics we found very annoying. Therefore be prepared to buy you own and bottled... More
