“Fantastic week”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

just returned on saturday 9th March from a fantastic week. We arrived late 11.15pm we were checked in and told to go and get a drink although they had stopped serving bar staff very friendly all week. Reception staff very helpful with any request or asking for an information. The food in the dining room was excellent with a good choice and a freshly cooked choice by chef at breakfast and lunch. His pancakes at breakfast are fantastic.room was spotless maid in ever day all areas of hotel were clean at all times. there are renovations on going in the hotel but the builders really dont get in the road they start about 9 and are finished by 6pm the whole floor where they were working was closed off.Would recommend this hotel if you smile and are pleasent to the staff you get the same back common curtesy wins everytime remembering there are lots of nationalities in the hotel we counted at least 6 last week, Entertainment was good a lot of dancing at night but something going on from 10am every day.

Room Tip: we were on 4th floor overlooking front door was good if you like to see whats going on (ok nosey )

We stayed here on a stag do, pool side drinks where very limited but its only a few steps to the indoor bar which isnt to bad, it was a very strict hotel and they showed no patiance towards us.
Food was good at the hotel and they had a hot meat section with different food daily, the snacks are very poor here inbetween meals and they offered no ice-cream or other snacks during the day unless you paid which i thought if you was all inclusive then surely you get to eat and drink what you like?? Rooms where always clean and so was the whole hotel, there was no entertainment in the evenings at the hotel which made no difference to us as we was not staying in the hotel! The local nightlife was amazing and was only walking distance from the hotel, the beach was also close and there was plenty to do at the beach. I know ibe got a few moans about this and that but i would defo stay at this hotel again even with my family, overall it was a good hotel, clean and there was plenty of food selection at meal times.

we arrived at the samba on thursday 21st feb. hotel looked fine. we had to wait an hr for our room key and all inclusive band but that was fine..
our room was ok size for 3girls street view of the balcony.

bleugh that was not a nice meal was very cold and tasteless so we hit the all inclusive drinks bar..
yes it was in a plastic cup but who cares they were not stingy on measures... a few blue coracao and fantas n we had to have a sleep!!
2nd day food was much nicer brekki was great and lunch was..
we hit the town that night plenty to do.. we strolled in at 6.30am ....

a short cheap all inclusive trip,turned into a long expensive famished escapade.the rooms were ok and kept clean.the food was awful and the resturant staff were aloof at best.the all inclusive drink was terrible and served in a plastic beaker.as the all inc was in a seperate area of the bar at times the service was non exsistant and it was clear that those who were paying got much better service and the occassional smile.there was a snack bar as advertised however i am sure that the hygene of leaving a pizza some hot dog sausages and burgers all day is not good.they did however top the crisps up from time to time and when the resturant was open they did throw a sheet over the counter.on one of the morning we were told that they had no eggs left.then as if by magic at luch time they served the largest spanish omlett i had ever seen.in summary the food was very poor and cold (except the salad which was luke warm),the drink was awful and served in baby cups by staff who had been programed to ignore and ensure sullenness at all times.it is no surprise that spain struggles economically as they dont look after their customers in their biggest industry I WONT BE BACK.

Room Tip: go to another hotel

good if you just want a cheap break. when i went (mid sept 2012) there were lots of young same sex groups which was fine by me and my friend.
lots of sunbeds were broken, check before u sit down!
had dinner in the hotel one night as it was raining-wouldnt eat there again!food was cold and not much choice!
not far from the beach (10-15 minute walk)
our room was clean but not good,there was cracks in the walls and the bathroom door wouldnt shut!
lots of steep steps down to the pool
rooms have air con which you can control which was nice and maid service every day

Room Tip: i would recommend an apartment as the studio rooms were apparently very small.
