ALL THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS ARE CORRECT! Makes out it’s 3 star but doesn’t deserve 1!
Suppose to have been refurbished in 2012, this has only consisted of painting the walls!
Don’t be tempted by low prices and misleading pictures, pay a bit more and read all reviews before booking – like we should have done!
The apartments are dark and dingy, even with the sun coming in, with insufficient lighting, badly equipped kitchen, useless pillows – had to go out and buy our own, old mattresses with springs coming through and covered in stains, mattress covers too. Towels old and washed out, bed counterpanes tatty. The curtains were stained and hanging off. Damp in the bedroom – clothes, even in suitcases, became damp and smelly. Bathroom fitments are old, rusty and dirty. Bathroom door wouldn’t even close, let alone lock. The chair in the living room was so old and ripped; you could put your hand through the hole in the foam seat.
The Hotel is also dangerous. A step collapsed on the stairs as we ascended. The front patio door would not unlock from the inside, took 15 minutes to open it, so we had to leave it unlocked at night or we may have been locked in. Even the window lock was insecure.
The tiles around the hotel walk ways were lethally slippy when damp; it was like an Ice Rink every day.
The Hotel is located in the middle of a derelict building site. Not many facilities around; a few bars and a small supermarket. There is a hotel, however, with a good pizza restaurant. The walk to Caleta is long, more like 40 minutes rather than 20. There is no beach, Costa Antiqua is built on top of the cliff. Yes, the pool is freezing, even in the Canaries pools need to be heated, disapointing.
The staff are friendly and welcoming on arrival but they are fighting a loosing battle. The place needs closing down and a proper refurbishment done – and loose the food....thereby hangs another diabolical tale.
