I have just returned from The Planamar 7th may to the 11th may. I went with my friend for a girlie few days a way. First impression was lovely looking hotel great location opposite the beach and a five minute walk to train station ( to the left as you leave the hotel). once we had our room key and entered our room very disappointed, we had three beds and the door kept knocking the bed on entering and leaving, the room although looked clean the floor had not been swept as there was a lot of big crumbs/stones on floor, very tiny room and very dark ( we was on the side of the building and could see the sea to the right of our balcony) major operation to open close shutters to balcony as so small(balcony). Very noisy at night you can hear every thing and everyone returning to bed in the early hours!! Beds were comfortable and we did sleep well. Breakfast was good lots of choice, help yourself to tea coffee, lunch chips and salad with fish/chicken most days, evening meal similar to lunch with additional meat, pasta. Dessert was the same every day Chocolate sponge, jelly, ice cream and crème caramel, mousse or rice pudding and fruit. The snacks are the same every day and every snack break chips, burgers and sausages!!! The pool was quite deep and not very good for young children and not enough sun beds but just go across the road to the beach!!.the entertainment was not very good so not really for young children probably best for couples or children 6 years and up to 12. Staff were great and very friendly. We went to the 4* Royal sun for lunch (pre book the day before as you can use facilities for the day and is right on the beach) wasn't impressed same food with more desserts, staff and guests more grumpy but lovely location. We didn't do Medieval night as I had already done this trip but it is worth going from memory. The shops to the left (near the station ) are a lot cheaper than to the right and you can get some real bargains (don't forget to barter) I managed to get gifts 40% cheaper, so give it a go!! I will return next time with my Hubby as it is a cheap hotel but at the end of the day you decide what you eat, there is a choice you wont starve. The alcoholic beverages included in AI are not usual strength and their version of Baileys was very drinkable!
Hope this helps,,,, cheap, cheerful and well worth the money in a beautiful location!
