I stayed here in June 2012! NEVER AGAIN!! I didn't mind the fact that it is incredibly noisy and the staff are horrible, it was just somewhere to put our heads down!! We stayed for 3 nights.. We were out for two of those and on the 3rd night I didn't feel the best as I suffer from epilepsy so I went to lie down and ended up staying in for the night! My friend went for one drink and then he came back and also went to bed. At 3am we were woken up to banging on our door and before we got a chance to answer two HUGE bouncers from a pub down the street were in our room pulling us out of bed! YES the receptionist had given two strange men a key to our room!!!!!!!!!! Apparently a chair had been thrown off one of the balconies and into the beer garden of the pub of these bouncers! Seeing that we were clearly asleep when they came in they left. At this stage we kinda realised what was goin on so I got my camera and thankfully took pictures of our chairs showing that we still had our 4 and that it clearly wasn't us! The young lad next to our room was found on his balcony a few moments later after these men had let themselves in there too. A bag of drugs was thrown by this young lad over the balcony which we all witnessed!! He only had 3 chairs!! Clearly him!!!!! But no... these men came back to our room and took us and seperated us! I was brought down an alley and threatened and pushed and told to say my friend had done this! I did not give in! I was so scared!! A small girl with a huge over 6 foot spanish bouncer assaulting me!! We were finally let back to our room when they realised it wasn't us after I showed the pictures! The next morning we received an apology from the manager which we accepted but when we said we wanted to report these men they turned on us! Said we won't get out of the country! We didn't know who we were dealing with and then instantly turned to speaking spanish! We left afraid of what was goin on in this hotel and what would happen to us!!
This was one of the most frightening experiences of my life! The hotel is noisy, dirty, old and this you could deal with for a short trip but strange men bein given access to your room, hotel staff watching a young girl bein pushed down a side alley of the hotel, being threatened, seeing bags of drugs thrown around!! PLEASE STAY AWAY!! Really not worth it even if it is cheap!!
The Verdemar is nearly as cheap but so much better! My friends stayed here and loved it!
