We stayed in Puerta del Sol last week, it's LOW season so there's nothing to do there now. At the front desk they don't speak any word english, but my wife speaks some spanish, we needed that. The hotel at the first sight is not extremely bad but when you look better you'll see that they don't fix anything there, dont paint the walls, but fine it could be worse. So we went up to the room but that was like a nightmare, it looked like 20 years old, used, smelled like an attic (humid, dirty). We found THREE dead cucaracha's in our room and one was still alive hiding in the bathroom. The shower was so dirty, black stains and spots on the walls, floor, horrible, we made photo's and we'll take them to the travel agency. We asked to change rooms but all the rooms looked that poor. So at least after 2 days they gave us a better room, but still 1,5 star quality.
The food wasn't bad, it was prety good actualy, but there wasn't much to pick, because of the lowseason there weren't much guests in the hotel. Less then 100 they told my wife.
The third day, when we finaly had a better room (still without hot water, just forget about it) in the evening my wife and I felt sick, de next day it was getting worse and more worse every hour. Diarea, Vomiting, horrible, seven other people in our group also had the same problems. The doctor came over and told us we had an infection, so we had something very bbad! He braugt us medicins and gave us a diet.
We were to sick the first 2 days but then we went to the hotel next door called Flamboyant, that was much better. It was recently renovated, nice rooms, good food, and also some entertainment, better than puerta del sol, they had a bunch of jong people there who looked very tired. Puerta del Sol's staff was fine, they tried to be nice tu us but the manager he is a very unplesant person, we wanted to speak with him to complain about our sickness, after 45 minutes waiting and asking 5 times finaly he came to see us. But he also doesn't speak a word english. So mi wife had a discussion with him but he didn't even gave us an excuse and just walked away. The secuirity came and asked us to leave beacause we weren't guests anymore. This is unacceptable.
Margarita is, well: was a nice place but I won't reccomend it anymory, the beaches are dirty, the boulevard and everything it looks so old, so cheap. 3 years ago it was better. It seems getting worse every year there. The beach also is much smaller now than before.
