Booked a cheap week at the Parque Golf in February, first time in a two star apartment but for the price it seemed a good deal.
On arrival I was surprised at the look of the place, neat, clean and tidy. Check in was quick and receptionist was friendly, the walk to the apartment through the nice gardens was very good and room itself was clean, tidy and in a state of good repair. We were thinking why haven't been booking two star in the past?
The real let down was the food and drink, the first lunch was laughable, rice, chips and pasta. This is not an exaggeration and I am by no means a fussy eater. The same evening we went for dinner, there was NO MEAT, now i don't mean there was no rib eye steaks or grilled chicken, there was no meat, not even a slice of ham to make a sandwich. It was the same rice, chips and pasta. The only meal worth going to was breakfast, this consisted of ham, cheese, very nice bread, juice, eggs and bacon.
Even the salad and vegetable offerings were awful, sprouts that would remind you of school dinners, soggy and cooked to within an inch of their lives. There were carrots on the cold buffet but on closer inspection they were pickeled along with cornishons. The only fresh thing was lettuce, by the forth day the introduction of some fresh tomatoes was a relief.
We would eat breakfast then buy ham and salad vegetables from the on site store to take to lunch. The only positive thing I can say about the food was that the bread served at lunch and breakfast was very very nice. If you go take extra money for eating out as a week of bread could be a bit much to handle.
There was also a self service bar, sounds great but the cleaning must have been self service aswell, it wasn't very clean and the non branded soft drinks all tasted the same.
In summary, very nice accommodation and setting but the food is a real let down. I cannot think of a British establishment that would serve such a low quality of food, please do not think of me as an egg and chips kind of person. I like fresh food and had reasonable expectations of two star food but even these were not met.
I will definitely go back to the Parque Golf Apartments as they were clean, tidy with good maid service but will only be going back on a bed and breakfast deal.
The food is the only reason why I have rated this poor, if the food was of a better quality then I would rate on the good side of average
