we have just returned from a fantastic week at the fanabe, travelling with 4 adults, a 3 year old and an 18 month old. as recommended on here, i emailed the hotel a week before to request quiet rooms close to each other and was given 2 pool view rooms on the first floor, next door but one to each other, which was ideal. and they were lovely and quiet.
the rooms were spacious, with a HUGE double bed, a settee which was made up for my daughters bed, a chair which could be made into another bed and a travel cot. the cot was lovely with childrens bedding and very sturdy for my active little boy. both beds were really comfy, the sofa bed plenty big enough for an adult - we all swapped beds every night! the rooms were also cleaned every day.
we were half board and found it really useful that we could choose each day whether we had dinner or tea there, as it gave us the freedom to eat out on a night if we wanted.
we never had a problem getting a table, even when there were 6 of us and there were plenty of high chairs and booster seats.
the food at every meal time was amazing. breakfast had cereals, ham, cheese, fruit, pancakes, eggs, omlettes, bread and a 'diet' table, plus the usual fry up stuff.
dinner had salad, cheese, veg, rice, pasta, chips, freshly cooked fish and meat, bread and soup, with ice cream, fruit and amazing cakes for pudding.
tea was a wider selection of the dinner options, with a theme like mexican, italian, canarian etc. and was the same for pudding too.
the food was delicious, constantly replaced and didnt get boring over the week we were there, although it might do if they repeat it each week and youre there for 2 and staying AI. our best bits were the bread rolls, salads, pancakes, ice cream and desserts! the paella and pizza was also delicious. there was a kids buffet, but my 2 and most other children were very happy eating from the main buffet.
the pool was great, the no reserving sunbeds rule worked and we never had a problem getting 5 sunbeds together and 2 or 3 umbrellas, regardless of what time we arrived. most days we didnt get down til 10 or 10.30!
there are a team of photographers who take photos around the hotel, which you can view near the bar in reception. we didnt realise, but they only keep the photos on file for 24 hours, so missed out on buying some beautiful photos from the first 2 days. if youre interested, ask them to make you an album, so you can view all the ones you like at the end of your hols. it costs 20E but comes off your final bill at the end.
the hotel was lovely and incredibly clean, the cleaning staff do a fantastic job. the reception staff were always really helpful and the entertainment team were great - the man who seems to be in charge never stopped smiling and always took time to talk to us as he passed.
overall, this is a great hotel, and in a good location just a short walk from the promenade and beach. yes, it is a steep slope and hard work coming back up with a buggy, but not that bad, as we did it at least once every day! you can always split up the slope by walking down to the hotel with fountains in front, turn left at the zebra crossing, walk along the street then walk down the slope further along where hawai restraunt is. we get bored taking the same route every time!
hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
