I had good references from a friend about Ardamis rooms so I booked the room “Chateu - PIRGOS” using their web site. I thought that I was lucky to hit the cheapest of the rooms available on a high season timeframe but as soon as I saw the “Chateu – PIRGOS” room all my questions were solved.
Their web page is misleading because it does not say that the Chateu room is attached to the owners house and the following are the facts against what it is presented in their site:
The Satelite Nova TV, DVD Player are not inside your room but at the main lobby of the Ardamis facilities.
Same applies for Wireless internet.
Indeed I had Welcome Drinks. They had a pvc bottle of water that had be opened before and was refilled. Absolutely disgusting!
The Refrigerator was not working. I asked the personnel to check it twice and they never did anything to fix it.
To get the whole picture. “chateu” is a very small room. You have a double bed but you can access it only from the one side. Prepare to wake up your mate if you want to go to the bathroom and she is asleep.
The bathroom is huge but it lacks any kind of ventilation except opening the windows. So essentially, the only way to keep tolerable the air in the bathroom during the hot days in the summer is to have yourself exposed to the people walking outside of the bathroom (since the bathroom is at ground level).
Last but not least, the bedroom was quite dirty and the furniture abandoned. You could see dust all over the decoration.
So, in other words you get nothing staying in this small room except sleeping. You don’t even have a tiny radio to listen to some music. And it would not be a comfortable sleep since you get no tidiness or other value.
I will note again that I had good references for the Ardamis rooms from a friend. But unfortunately these guys didn't give me a chance to witness this with my own eyes.. So, I can’t tell about the rest of the rooms but if all you can book is the “Chateu – PIRGOS” room, don’t buy it! It’s a scam! With the same money you can find excellent rooms 10 meters far.
PS: I read other messages about the lack of professionalism from the owners. I totally agree. When I told them that my refrigerator was out of order, they said they will fix it and they did nothing
