Have stayed with my family in Palmin Hotel for a week. Booked last minute hols on impulse and when came home with tickets in my hand, have read terrible reviews! My heart was pounding until we got there. Place appeared to be nice and staff very friendly.
Wasn't happy about "no food from outside" policy but if you'd bring some snack or drink in your beach bag or backpack, nobody asks any questions.. Have never seen anyone to be searched by staff or security. Rooms were cleaned every day and the personnel had obviously seen soft drinks, chips and another snacks not available in the hotel, but nothing was said about it.
Some people mentioned about ear infections. We were ok (my daughter was in water all the time), but I saw birds drinking water from the pool. Believe there was no chlorine in the water.
Won't agree with no entertainment. There was something every night: belly dancer, mogician, synchronised swimming, live music... And some games for kids as well.
Breakfast. Can't complain. variety of fresh baked bread, yoghurts, about 5 types of cheese, some ham, sausages, boiled and scrambled eggs, omlette, crossaints, biscuits, cornfalkes, fruits an vegetables, variety of juces and jam or honey... maybe if you stay for two weeks you'd get bored if nothing was changed. I stayed for one week and it was ok.
Price of food: costs more than in town. But its 4star hotel, kinda expected. But its still comparable, or cheaper than dining out in Ireland. Some examples (after conversion lira to euro): beer €2.8 , pizza €8, chicken curry €10, fajitas €8, coca cola €1.5, scoop of ice cream €1, dessert €2.5. Down in town or at the beach you can get these about 30% cheaper but need to take a walk to the beach or taxi to town and that is another few €. Its up to you.
Do not understand why would you go down to town to buy water - you could buy 5 litre bottle for €1,8 at hotel shop. In town its €1.5
I didn't get a pool view room, but actually was happy about that. I was with little baby and there was music at the pool till late.
Air conditioning worked like a charm. Rooms are equipped with small fridge, kettle etc. Also safe but this one is paid €10 per week.
There is a room for preparing baby food, equipped with fridge, microwave, steriliser etc.
There is paid internet caffe. but if you have your own laptop or smartphone with wifi you can use it for free aroun reception ( restaurant, lobby, pool bar)
I'd go back there again.
