“Thouroughly enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

My wife and I stayed at this resort in November 2013 and had a great time. The rooms are very comfortable and just as in the brochure, with the oddly but rather pleasant glass walled bathroom. Only thing we felt missing was a clock and some form of tea coffee making facility but those are small things. The pools have plently of sun beds and no one seemed to grab them with the usual towels, we could have been lucky. One word of warning though for winter sun lovers, only two pools are heated and the rest were simple freezing, nice to sit around but no chance of a dip. The food was fantastic, a good selection every day and plentiful, really couldn't fault it. The service was also really good with bright smiles and a nice welcome. The entertainment was well entertaining even if that was down to how bad it was, but good fun none the less. Only other thing to note is that it is very close to the airport and the planes fly to the front of the hotel and are very low indeed. We live close to Heathrow, about 7 miles away, so it wasnt too much for us but I could imagine at the hight of the summer season it could get a bit much. Otherwise excellent.

We Stayed at the San Blas hotel for our friends 40th birthday weekend. We all had such a fab time, the hotel is gorgeous as are the rooms, which are extremely spacious & all mod cons. Me & my friend spent most of our time by the heated pool with comfortable beds & also has a bar for your all inclusive drinks, whilst the guys went and played golf. We had some treatments in the spa which were lovely and relaxing, but pre book as they get quite booked up as the spa isn't that big. The food was the best I've ever had in an all inclusive, although there is only one main restaurant it's very big & lots of choice as they put different food all most nights. Lastly the drinks on all inclusive we're really good as well, with lots of choice from cava, cocktails, wine & beer. The only slight niggle we would say that the entertainment could of been a bit better as it was only on for one hour a night, but that could of been due to out of season times. All in all a perfect retreat for a special occasion.

We have just returned after a week from the 21st till 27th Nov for my 50th birthday at the San Blas Sandos, the place is unusual in design and beautifully laid out. The staff were very efficient and helpful; we found the odd 5 euros tip was well received, on my birthday there was a beautiful cake waiting for me when I returned to our room. All previous reviews went on about children in the adult swimming and eating areas we never witnessed this, may be due to the time of year and we found the older cliental were the towel on a sunbed culprits. Yes you will always find a few niggles ours was the serving of lager in a wine glass in the hotel reception bar and the entertainment was not very good except the Beatles evening which was okay, otherwise this hotel suited us for a holiday. If you want quiet during the day there were plenty areas to get away from the crowd, if you like action stay around the pool.
Here are a few a tips which i thought may help.
* The mini bar was empty but there is a supermarket in San Blas which sells lager & spirits at really good prices so we stocked up ourselves.
* There is no kettle in the room but ask reception one was delivered immediately with coffee and tea provided.
* There were snacks available throughout the day from 3 till 6 in the restaurant, in the evening around 10.30 till 11.00 there are canapés and sandwiches provided in the reception bar.
* In San Blas on the road directly over looking Sandos San Blas we can highly recommend the Oriental Garden this is a Chinese eat as much as want buffet which is cooked in front of you and is 7.95 euros we went there twice during our stay.
* if you like markets there is a small one on a Friday morning in San Blas it is over the bridge overlooking the harbour if you walk past the Vicci which is the large white hotel to the right of Sandos there is a lovely walk past hotels and villas to the harbour, it takes around 15 minutes walking. On a Sunday morning we caught a taxi 21 euros each way to Los Christiano’s this market is much bigger with a lot of haggling to be done both markets are open from 9 till 2.
* The spa where I had the aroma massage for an hour I would highly recommended felt totally relaxed after, we met up with a fab couple from London and the four of us booked the water circuit for 10 euros which was great fun and we all enjoyed the experience which consisted of hot and cold treatments such as going in the sauna then rubbing ice pieces all over ourselves a very hot shower then going into a shower cubical and pulling a cord which pulled a bucket of cold water onto yourself. This proceeded you onto the Jacuzzi’s which had very powerful jets we felt it was money well spent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over the lake very quiet with the sun late in the day.

My partner and I had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Quality food, plenty of choice, nice clean hotel, rooms gorgeous with an unusal lay out of bathroom but we loved it, wine was delicious although would prefer to serve ourselves in restaurant as sometimes had to wait for waitresses to come over for top ups. Beautiful eating area although not very romantic as u have to sit opposite eachother and tables are very long and your very close to the people either side of you. Also all the kids in there are very annoying would of been nice for adult only section away from the kids. In hotel room it would of been nice to have a mini bar rather than empty fridge in a 5 star hotel. We had to carry wine in 2 plastic beakers up to our room (which is a long way) to sit on our balcony. I would recommend requesting a room over looking the boating lake if you are goingto this hotel. We were over kids pool and it was very noisy. room A319

Aircraft noise ok if the are landing over the hotel. however if they take off over the hotel very noisy and woke me up if i was having a little siesta by the pool.

Room Tip: over the boating lake wish we had requested these rooms. Some have sun loungers on the balconys

This was our second visit and we would not hesitate to return. This isn’t the place to go if you want to be at the centre of the nightlife. But if you want a quiet break its perfect. Spotlessly clean, good food, great surroundings and great staff. People have commented on the aircraft noise. Although the planes are very low and noisy, its not a busy airport and there are few night flights.

Returned yesterday and overall, the hotel is a good choice, perhaps not quite a 5* but better than a 4*. The food - and we are fussy - is the best we have had for all-inclusive hotel in Europe with good house wine - red or white Rioja - named spirits and cocktails made to order rather than the weak pre-mixed cocktail bases used in other hotels we have stayed in. All staff were pleasant and the waiting staff topped up your glasses for you and we noticed tables of 4+ were given bottles of wine on their tables. Bottles of cold water were left out on the bar counters and everywhere had tea & coffee available.

The a la carte restaurant was very disappointing in menu variety and certainly no better than the buffet, with actually some of the same food, apart from waiter service. Someone else has written on a review there was an a la carte menu available for a supplement but we were not offered it nor was there any literature around the hotel offering extra visits to the restaurant - a missed sales opportunity as we would gladly have paid to go there if it had been a better menu. The only other choices on the set menu we were given was lobster or crab at a supplement. The courses were also served extremely quickly, even although we asked for a break in between, and we left feeling stuffed and disappointed.

The bedrooms were very good, spacious with great bathrooms with jacuzzi baths & fab waterfall showers with music in the toilets, very comfortable beds with dressing gowns, slippers and room safe included. We slept soundly and apart from noise in the morning from people going to breakfast, it was quiet. The airport proximity surprisingly did not affect us as the hotel is on the flightpath for landings, not take-offs so the noise is minimal. TV in the bedrooms showed BBC 1 & 2, C4 & 5, Film4 so good choice.

The spa was very small with few facilities and not comparable to other 4* hotels we have stayed in on the island or in Marriott/De Vere etc hotels in the UK; treatments were expensive so we did not bother but did use the spa for E10 each but really not worth it; ask to see it first which we did not.

The clientele was very mixed with elderly, young & middle aged couples and many young families of several nationalities. The restaurant and pools had adult only areas.

Our only niggles were only 2 of the swimming pools were heated and these were not adult only pools so very noisy with young families and also aqua aerobics, salsa lessons & bingo were in/by these pools. Also the evening bars lacked any atmosphere and there was not a single area where people congregated. The entertainment, although better than we have seen in similar hotels, was in a large entertainment hall seperate from anywhere else and again lacked atmosphere. Another gripe, which is maybe our taste only, was all food was served in the buffet restaurant and we would have liked to have had a lunchtime snack sitting by the pool area not having to go into the restaurant. There was outside seating to the restaurant but there were a lot of flies about making eating outside unbearable.

As others have said, no immediate bars or shops outside the hotel and don't pay for transfers as only E16 by taxi from airport.

Our benchmark is always would we return: probably yes in view of value for money for what we paid was excellent and other hotels offering food, drink and bedroom quality of this level will be a lot more money but not for more than a week and only to escape for winter sun.

Room Tip: Ask for a west facing room to get afternoon sun.
