Just came back from here and i have given 1 star as i had to but would give it 0 if I could. Me and my husband went for a romantic break spending our wedding money on this trip as we are newly weds.
We just got back yesturday after spending 5 days here and this was our experience.
And it was the worst thing we have ever done!
Malgrat De Mar - GANGS OPERATE IN THIS AREA , our first night me and my husband wet out t a bar just across the street and left early hours of the morning where we met in the street 3 girls from our hotel who we walked back with. Moments later we were surrounded by males and females in what looked to be like a gang. They stole my mobile phone and all my money out my bag, pulled knife out on my husband then ran him over in car. Luckily we all got away and my husband just hurt his shoulder. Back at hotel they would NOT call police even explaining what happened we were told NO , NO POLICE.
Next day we got an ambulance to the hospital where we where then told , WE PAY , INSURANCE PAY YOU ..........knowing we had just been robbed. Wouldnt treat him so we ended up leaving with no treatment or money and had to walk 7miles back to the hotel which took us 5 hours. We rang hotel to se if they would pay for taxi untill we sorted money but they wouldn't. Went in numerous hotels for help NO ONE WOULD HELP. even went to police station who also wouldnt help and said to go to the next tow.
THIS WAS THE WORST DAY EVER , i have never felt such pain in my feet and legs and thirst in all my life. Luckily i passed a German woman who asked if i was okay and she offered me some of her water.
OUT THERE YOU WILL GET NO HELP
Room - our room was very small and cramped , done the job but couldnt swing a cat. NO english channels on TV and the bath is so small even me at 5ft 4 couldnt hardly move in it. Roomes were clean but not very comfortable
Hotel - Is nothing like pics on internet it is a very very dark and dreary place , I wish i could have took pictures but with my phone being stolen i couldnt. Corridors are like a block of prison cells its got a very uneasy feel. And someone walks around back and forwards up them through early hours , when we looked out no one was there.
Staff are very abrupt not very helpful , apart form the bar staff they are okay. There is no representative in this hotel so your on your own.
LOcation - yes its by the beach but you are also facing a train line where trains pass frequently through day and night. we were side sea facing so got a bit of both but to get to and get out of hotel you have to go under a subway which is very unsettling , (it was out side here we got attacked)
Not a place to bring your children.
Pool area is okay but alot smaller than pics percieve
Drink - is surprisingly fine , but you have to drink from plastic cups.
Food - Absolutely disguising. Same thing EVERYDAY but in a different form. ( you will get a diffrenet shaped pasta for eaxmple or a slightly different sauce). All meats are fish or pork. Salad is basic and a plate of onions was left for a few days they were turning brown. Most food is reheated and used later in day. It was getting to the point that going in the dinning area was making me reach and ended up living on hotdogs served from the beach bar. At end of holiday We felt ILL.
Once we sorted some money on our last day we thought wed trat ourselves to a mexican , at chamacos just next to hotel and it was just as bad , my food was burnt and i didnt eat it yet they still charged and would not discount.
Breakfast was about the only ok meal of the day.
FLIES- the place is swarming with flies , sitting out side they are crawling up your legs and arms to the point i just went in to my room.
We have travelled to many places in Spain and have never came across anything like this place. Peoples attitudes are very bad (I have never known the spanish to be this way). The whole area looks more like a shanty town not a holiday area.
VERY disappointed and will never ever ever go back , i just wish I had done more research before hand as i wouldn't have went
Im not sure why people find this Hotel Acceptable
