I have stayed in this Hotel Many Times over the last 15 Years or more and 4 over the New Year period from Millenium onwards, We always have a wonderful time as the staff are great the rooms are lovely and the food always excellent and the Gala Dinner a great start to a New Year.
We arrived and check in was fine a bit slow eventually got the rooms we requested although still not ready had lunch, rooms were fine although you can see the ware and tare in places showing in bathroom especially but still very nice clean the free safe and wi fi are good. no Mini Bar in fridge which didnt work or Water and Newspaper for MAS Holders?
We were Full Board so Lunch was available in La Proa, Over the years you could order from there general menu, However now they have a daily set Lunch menu for Full Board which over the 4 days too limited in choice and in particular in quality example is one day seafood with spaghetti next day tuna with macarroni same sauce only different pasta!! so overall cut backs are obvious to regular customers which is a shame,However as always the Staff are lovely which is always a pleasure.
The lounge in the evening in nice singer each evening although missed the dancers this year drinks are expensive this should be looked at again service is very good it is not a party Hotel but suits us fine.
The Main dinning Room has had a major Makeover since or last Stay now similar to reception in decor Black and White etc! Before this makeover it was always Pleasure going for Dinner lovely atmosphere all the Tables had Linen Table clothe Napkins and very nice Wine Glasses etc which always gave a an upmarket feel without being pretentious and a vast choice on food presented always left Dinnerwith a Smile, Now however it is plastic black and white tables mainly for 2 Persons with plastic mats etc although they can make them for more joining them together!! the noise level both at breakfast and Dinner is Horrible the nearest comparison is a Fast Food Outlet now its an atmosphere of get them in and get them out perfect for the coach parties that now seem to be there main stay.
The Food is still very good but not as varied as before but it is not a place now for a nice couple of hours eating and drinking over conversations you would be hoarse having to raise your voice
to be heard. this is a great disappointment to all of us as now we would not consider going either Half or Full Board but again the staff cope with masses well and are lovely there ears must be ringing at the end of the evening!!!!
Thankfully the Gala Dinner was Great Restaurant done up properly had a good time, nice Meal Wine, Drinks good, highlight of stay! again staff hard working and lovely always to be thanked.
So overall it was good to be back seeing the lovely staff again, However next time we would only go Bed and Breakfast as the Restaurant now as mentioned is far too noisy and cheap in Decor, This is a Great disappintment to us all, However would still recomend staying here.
