Just back from our holiday at Florida Spa, and as usual we have nothing but praise for this hotel. This our 6th visit and we will be going again next year. Spotlessly clean, fantastic shower, everything we needed in our room. Amazing buffet for dinner and breakfast. I am a 'fussy' eater, but even I could not find fault. Staff are really nice and genuinely friendly. Antonio the head bar man is in the wrong career - he should be a comedian - such natural talent!! Happy hour is great value for evening drinks. The entertainment is OK - slightly changed from last year, but if you don't like it, you don't have to stay. The performers are doing their best. We don't use the pool area, as it is too hot and crowded, and all the sunbeds have towels on them, so you have no chance if you have breakfast later than 8.30 - some towels are there all day and no one uses the beds, so we go to the beach!! We made the mistake of going to a hotel in Cambrils in March, so we were pleased to be back at Florida again.

Ups - Staff brilliant - at reception, in the restaurant, room service, in the bar areas - really felt looked after. Stayed half board, food was usually very good, especially salad bar and breakfast meals, plenty of choice, no issues at all.
Evening entertainment was quite good. Some people felt that it was aimed at over 60's (the majority stayed sat down) but there was plenty to get up and dance to - if you still felt energetic after a day spent in 86 degree sunshine.
Our room was good, a little 'worn', but had a good view over the marina area and sea. Have to say the lady servicing rooms on Floor 5 was excellent (*****) - clean bathroom, towels and bedding, floors kept spotless. Free safe (more stars), a small fridge and tea and coffee facilities made the stay very pleasant. Hotel is in a very good location.
Downs - really only one - the pool area. A small pool for so many guests, sunbeds in need of some serious refurbishment/replacement !! That's when you can get one !! Towels laid on the beds early morning, no one arrived until some 3 (THREE !!) hours later on occasion. Even later in the afternoon, towels on beds, no-one around using them. A notice on entering the pool area says that this practise is not tolerated and towels will be removed, Despite words with staff, nothing changed. Down at the hotel Yaramar you can get sunbed, brolly and a Sangria down on the beach for 5 euros, but guess what - towels on beds, no one bothers - take your choice !
Would go back, it was a really nice holiday but I will be out there with the towels at 7.00 am.

Room Tip: Upper floors overlooking the sea give nice view, but could be a little noisy later on busy evenings.

We love this Hotel it ticks every box for us the staff are wonderful nothing is too much trouble for them and they always have a smile on their face you can tell they are enjoying themselves just as much as the holiday makers.
We will be there again in November and then again in January. Maria runs a fantastic dining room and Antonio runs a fantastic bar.
The happy hours are well attended because they are such good value. Free safe, fridge and tea and coffee. also dressing gowns and pool towels in the rooms. We cannot wait to go back again.

i went to the Florida spa from 1st to 15th Aug 2013, the hotel was just as good as my previous visit the year before, rooms, restaurant and bars are all very well appointed and very clean.
This year i was on the 10th floor with a pool view, you still get a side sea view on this floor too, you still get free safe, fridge and tea + coffee as well.
This year i used the spa which was very good ( my 1st visit to one ) i had a massage head to toe back only they don't do fronts it cost €30 great value, supposed to last 30 mins mine was nearly an hour, i'm definitely a convert now and be using spa's again.
Happy hour in the bars seem to be getting longer, about 3 hours in hotel this year that made it probably cheapest place to drink that i found, beers and spirits inc not just local drinks

Room Tip: high floors have better views, lifts are not a problem for any floor

Just returned from the Florida Spa after a weeks break. Having previously stayed in Thomsons Platinum hotels we were slightly disappointed. The hotels is in need of some TLC and is looking dated and in need of decoration and could not compare with the other Platinum hotels we have stayed in. We had a superior room overlooking the pool which was large and had a lovely big bathroom. The pool is small and in need of repair as were the sunbeds. On the positive side the staff were fabulous and could not be faulted. The Happy Hour in the bar was very good value for money and was a very good idea as it filled the bar for the entertainment which was poor. Good business plan. The resort was excellent with lots of side streets full of bars and cafes. I would return to this hotel if it was updated. Tip rooms overlooking pool were very quiet at night, full nights sleep and no noise at all.

Room Tip: Overlooking pool above 6th floor

Having not stayed in a hotel for years (usually we stay in apartments or villas for summer holidays) I was a little bit sceptical about having a stay in a hotel but was very impressed. Stayed August 2012.

Rooms were clean, tidy and of good size. The bathroom was lovely and I did want to take the shower home with me!

We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel and the selection was good but I don't think I could have stayed any longer than 5 days or so as found the food getting a little repetitive but this is only because I am used to being self catered when away.

Drinks at the bar were very generous. I asked for a vodka and coke and got at least half a glass of vodka and a full glass bottle of coke. The BOGOF deals were also very good.

Didn't really rate the entertainment but that's personal choice. I do think the hotel caters for older guests, I was 24 at the time but it was a nice quiet hotel to stay in.

Found the pool area disappointing and the pool could do we a refurb. We opted for the beach deal from the Yaramar for 5 euros with an umbrella, 2 sunbeds and then free sangria. Really good value when you look at other deals along the beach. Sunbeds were very comfy with a really thick mattress to lie on.
