We had booked to stay at the Palace Hotel next door but there was an issue with overbooking there so they moved us to the Vistamar, we were disappointed initially until we got into the hotel. The Vistamar is far superior in my view, the decor was flawless and incredibly clean. Staff were friendly. And overall the hotel was quiet and relaxing. In comparison when we were in the Palace hotel it just seemed chaotic and busy and we heard a lot of complaints in the little time spent there.
We were self catering and had room on 5th floor. Great 1 bedroom apartment, all essentials there, daily maid service, enclosed balcony giving a little privacy. Our room was above the reception and small salon and 2 floors above the bar but no noise or disruptions from them. Safe and wifi were extra costs.
Pool area was great, not busy season but no problems getting sun loungers/umbrellas even after 11am, and sun was on whole pool all day.
Bar was good for escaping the hot midday and snacks - try the vistamar sandwich very good. Bar prices were average. Free entertainment on most nights - the magician was great and singers too but more people sat outside rather than in so slightly awkward with only few people actually watching.
Were self catering so cant comment on the buffet.
The hill which most people want to complain about is not too bad - plus can get access til 11pm through the secured gate via the car park.
We loved this hotel, in the end we were really happy to be moved to this hotel as it was more suited to couples and those wanting a relaxing chilled out quiet time.
