I've struggled a little bit with what to put in this review as there were some really good points to this hotel but some rather bad ones too. The staff are so lovely and helpful that you feel rather bad putting anything negative!
So the good points - in general the hotel is clean, the drinks are fine and the staff are lovely. Very friendly and very helpful. We arrived and were put into a ground floor room. I asked if we could swap to a higher level so we could open the door/windows at night and we were moved the next day. Also had a bad back and the staff kindly gave me a few paracetamol to help me. Cannot fault the service one bit!! Also there was always a spare sunbed, never had to worry about that as there are so many areas to sit/sunbathe it was a great relief!
So to the bad points. The hotel itself is very tired and dated. I guess if you're in a refurbished room you're alright but the rest are pretty tired and basic with plaster coming off and dirty aircon units although the rooms are tidy and clean. We asked for a double but got two singles so was a bit put out but they were comfy and we slept well so guess it evens it out!!
The main niggle with this hotel was the food. Bland and cardboard springs to mind. Pretty tasteless, budget accom. food. Also my main problem was the flies that were allowed to sit on the food! I'm not the most squeamish of people about food but I do draw the line at eating meat or salad which has several flies sharing it with me!!! If i'd have realised how bad it was I'd have just booked B & B as we went out one night to eat as couldn't face the same stuff again.
Heard several other people moaning about the food too.
Agree with the entertainment comments about it being a bit "benidorm" although we made the best of it and had a bit of a giggle on the two nights we stayed in.
So I guess in general - don't expect UK 4*, expect UK 3*. Expect friendly, helpful staff who will go that little bit further for you. Clean hotel and facilities. Expect average food and average entertainment.
