Goodness me! I have just been reading the reviews for the Balcon and cannot believe the negative comments. Yes, you have to be dropped off at the Riu Monica and wait for the mini bus, but it was only a short while before it came and the driver/porter arrived and he was very friendly and helpful. When we arrived at the Balcon, we were checked in quickly and efficiently and the porter took our cases up to our room. We had booked a room without a sea view, so we knew what to expect and as we were only there for a week, we didn't care, as we were hardly in our room, which was incidentally, lovely and light and airy. I have to say, however, if I was staying for more than a week and at a different time of year, I would definitely pay extra as the sea view is absolutely stunning. I honestly don't know why people are complaining about the food so much as we thoroughly enjoyed all our meals there, so much so, that we never went out for a meal. On the Friday night before we came home, there was a Chilean night, which was superb. Drinks were reasonable and we found all the waiting staff, both in the restaurant and the bar and terrace were all lovely. As I was always taught, behaviour breeds behaviour and everyone, including the lovely reception staff worked very hard. We were there late November, and they were just putting up the Christmas decorations, which were beautiful and made me wish I was staying for Christmas. The hotel is in such a superb spot and we loved sitting on the terrace or the small bar in the square opposite watching the world go by.
