We stayed at the Perla Marina for 2-weeks in April. On arrival I was impressed with the reception area. The staff I found friendly and helpful. This in my opinion is where the 4-star rating ends. We booked a room with a sea view. The room I thought was smaller than average. For those who may like a mini-bar, well, there wasn't one. The safe in the room needed a key to lock it. Not sure if you had to pay for this option as I never used that facility.
The plaster on the walls were peeling off.
The bath/shower room is the old fashioned style. Curtains around the bath and a hand held shower hose. The first night we found there was no water pressure, but the next day the maintenance man fixed the problem. We then discovered an infestation of ants in the bath room. The same maintenance man came back the next day to spray the room. Whatever spray he used the smell was overpowering for two days and there was no ventilation in the bathroom. Three days later the ants were back but not as bad as the first time. We decided not to bring it to the attention of the hotel because we didn't want to put up with the smell from that ant spray again
Breakfast was in a large hall. The drinks were one end and the food was at the other end of the hall so we all had to march up and down like soldiers to choose our breakfast items. The choice for breakfast was very limited and the food was dried up and just warm not hot.
The location was good, on the beach and about a 15 minute walk into the heart of the town.
With the exception of the reception area the rest of the hotel I would class not much more than a 2-star, but that's from my experience of other hotels and only my opinion.
As for the staff I have no complaints, they were all friendly and helpful.
