We stayed at the Posada del Lucero for 2 nights but were disappointed with the rooms. The public areas were very nice and the room (SF3) a good size. However it was so poorly designed there was very little place to put your clothes. In a separate room was a wardrobe with hangers but no shelves. The wardrobe appeared to have space at each end which did not open. Their appeared to be an opening window from the wardrobe room to an outside space but this was locked and outside was just an empty concrete area.
The bathroom smelled of drains and the shower, which was very complicated to operate, leaked so after use we had to mop up. The complimentary toiletries failed to have the two items you might actually need ie soap and toothbrush & toothpaste.
Generally we felt the room needed sprucing up and the furniture replacing as it was looking a bit tired. There was some painting going on of some rooms so perhaps they hadn't reaches SF3 yet.
The staff didn't seem too enthusiastic. On arrival the porter had to find the receptionist. When I asked her about the pool she said it was open until 8pm and towels were available at the pool. When we went to investigate initially we struggled to find it, no signage, but on finding it we found it was locked up.We decided not to bother that evening but the next day after a hot day exploring we were looking forward to a relax by the pool. Again it was closed. I went to reception to find out what was happening. Another receptionist this time. On querying why the pool was locked he phoned somebody, could not get an answer.Looking rather exasperated he hailed a passing cleaner who informed him that the pool was closed for the winter! Did the previous day's receptionist not know this?
Breakfast was OK but no hot option offered the first morning but was offered the next morning.
Overall the Posada did not live up to it's billing and needs a makeover.
