The Boss re-visited the hotel with her sister (2nd-16th May) after we had 2 weeks here 18 months ago. Before her arrival I had requested a couple of things, a room near to where we were before( sea view, a must!) and a kettle. Both requests were fulfilled although the hotel wanted to charge for the use of 2 cups, stingy or what!
The hotel was as good as ever with one exception. On our previous visit we went half board and thoroughly enjoyed the food, breakfast and dinner were excellent. This time the girls discovered that half board clientele are offered the daily "Chef's Special". Basically 2 choices of each course. This went down like the proverbial lead balloon after the quality that the girls were expecting. No mention of this on the holiday blurb, no mention on the hotel web site that if you go half board, expect less of a choice than other customers!
It was amicably sorted out but it was disappointing after the high expectations and one of the reasons for booking this hotel. As ever, cost was mentioned.
So, life has caught up with The Real Marina and Spa, shame!
