“Disgusting pool & service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Me and my partner booked into these apartments may 2013, our first impression was a road Spainish bloke checking us in, he really didn't want to serve us or to ensure we had a nice stay. We paid extra for the wifi, which didn't work in our room. So if you aren't on the ground floor don't believe him when he says its everywhere, because it isn't. The pool had lots of floating mess in it, and the pool side loungers where dirty. We often went to local pools which where cleaner and offered bar services. No drink machine or bar here which was inconvenient. The so called gym, as three pieces of equipment that don't work, overall, we wouldn't stop here again and it wasn't pleasant.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

At last an English review of the Don Gregorio.

Stayed at this 'Hotel' from 27th Dec to 5th Jan over the New Year period. Arrived late at 3am and found the security guard welcoming and helpful. Just got to room and flopped!!

Rooms are basic, 2 small beds on hardboard, clean bathroom with shower gel, soap etc...
Kitchenette with 2 hot plates and 3 of everything (plates, cups, cutlery etc)

Now when we checked the room the next day it stank of onions!!! The cupboard with the chopping board in reeked of the stuff. We had to spend the first day cleaning everything to get rid of the smell - and then the chopping board had to live on the balcony all week!!

Maid serviced room every day expect 2 but only had fresh towels every other day and I'm not sure if the bedding was changed at all? Safe in room was very large and cost 25 E for the week - electronic so no key needed - phew. Room keys are electronic also.

There are no staff here, no bar, no restaurant - nothing - nada - zilch!!! We knew this though but just wanted to warn you. The pool area is OK but is all very self service, You fetch your own bed and you put it back after you. The pool looked dirty and cold also, Although I did see them clean it twice at 10pm both times? it was dark how could they see what they were doing?

The location was ideal though - 5 mins to Yumbo, 10 mins to Cita and far away enough from the Kasbah (enough said). Some building work going on very close by so don't expect a nice lie in or afternoon nap.

Clientèle - Of the older Generation but quiet and friendly although we were the only English people there. This wasn't a problem though.

It was a good enough base camp for the Xmas and New Year period. With no air con I wouldnt stay again in the summer - in fact I'll tick it off the list and wont go back.
