Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Hotel Tal Affiliated by FERGUS receives a range of feedback from guests. While the proximity to the beach is appreciated, despite the challenging uphill trek, the all-inclusive offerings fall short of expectations with reports of poor food quality and limited drink options. Room conditions are a concern, with numerous mentions of inadequate air conditioning and cleanliness issues. Guests are divided on the atmosphere; the distinctly Spanish entertainment divides opinion, though some enjoy its traditional vibe. Service experiences also vary, with staff attitudes ranging from commendable to disappointing.

Food is absolutely vile!! Not edible not cooked properly cold and just gross! Had to live on bread rolls and eat out as we couldn’t stomach any of it. All the sun loungers were either broken or being taken by 7am in the morning! Not enough sun loungers for the amount of rooms! Pool is freezing cold and there is absolutely no sun on the pool. Completely shaded! Had to pay everyday for sun loungers down the beach. Customer service appalling, someone pood and weed all over the floor and stairs I tried to report they brushed me off and then just put a wet floor sign over it and left it there all night for the cleaner to do in the morning so the whole of our floor absolutely stunk made me sick! Lifts were always broken, pool side snacks? An absolute joke mouldy sandwiches and a cake if you were lucky! Air con in room didn’t work so unbearable to sleep at night, balcony door didn’t shut or lock properly. Room is very basic. Advertises entertainment? Never on unless a bit of bingo. The only good thing I have to say was location if you don’t mind a steep hill walk but other than that the rest was a complete waste of money and can honestly say was the worst place I have ever stayed! Don’t even try contacting the hotel or FERGUS to complain as they just stop responding don’t care as they have already had your money! The hotels response was pretty much tough luck!! Not all inclusive at all can only have 3 beers or wine with lunch and dinner can’t be taken out of restaurant and if you need a soft drink/water between the hours of 11pm & 8am no chance!! So so disappointed do not waste your money or time booking here please!

Truly awful hotel. Bland food, cheap old bedroom furniture and a balcony door that doesn’t lock. The air conditioning is so loud it sounds like a passing train. The outdoor street is covered in dog mess. Everything about this place is bad, there’s not a single good thing to say about it. And there’s no escape by going to a pleasant local bar or restaurant because there are none.

Nice and polite staff at the reception..The rooms are very clean,the food in the restaurant is good for a 3* hotel. It is also close to the beach. In general it was very pleasant stay and definitely recommend this hotel.I felt like at home there and will come back again in future.

We arrived on 16th October wary having read previous negative reviews. Our room was basic but clean. The beds were appalling, uncomfortable and quite unstable with clear damage to the legs. The door to the balcony did not lock and was very stiff to open, the lack of security was quite concerning. The air conditioning did not work, the room was incredibly uncomfortable in the evenings to the extent we started looking for other places to stay. A lack of a fridge in the room meant we could not keep anything in there. The food in the Buffet was almost inedible and very repetitive. We only ate in the hotel once and then didn't do so again, this was particularly annoying as we had paid for an all inclusive stay. We cannot stress enough that we would NOT stay here again and would recommend anyone else to give this place as wide a berth as possible. For your own sake stay somewhere, anywhere else!

Very disappointing. Jet 2 market Tal as "All inclusive" when it isn't. There is no free alcohol at the bar. Apparently a local by law prohibits it so "Not my fault gov" say weasely Jet 2 but they persist in the deception. Other than that Tal is up a hill in a skanky part of town and the food; think school dinners on repeat.

Good location. Value for money. The buffet always full. The best in it category. If you are not a very demanding person that needs luxur comfort is the best choice and near the beach. Also you can find parking at the end of the road 5 minutes walking from the hotel . The employees very helpful and working hard especially in the restaurant.

Beds uncomfortable, lights and wardrobe faulty , noise from generator all night , music from next room at 4 am . Food sloppy and monotonous. Drinks choices crap . Very very restrictive for drinks on all inclusive, even coffee tea restricted in restaurant. Crappy drink machines broken every day , not enough cups or glasses even though end of season . Staff unhelpful even putting glasses away in drawers instead of available at machines. . Hotel is uphill from beach but only 800 metres so location good, . But if this places handling of 3 drink law is typical then I think all inclusive in El Arenal is dead . Eat out and drank out at beach most days and couldn’t fault service or quality at all . Definitely not worth eating slop every day for two weeks at hotel. Been going abroad 40 years , last ten with Jet2 never seen so many complaints

Awful! Truly the WORST hotel I’ve stayed in. Believe the negative reviews. The beds are solid, the food is barely edible and cold. I know this is a 3 star but that is very generous. On our first day we discovered the patio doors didn’t lock on ground level, massive crack in the glass one side so couldn’t use that door for fear of it falling out. Honestly can’t find a single good point for this place.
