we stayed at the gold river for 3 nights from 1st nov with family and friends, arrived 11am to find hotel very busy and quite a que to check-in. Turned out it was a spainish bank holiday so was 1 of the most busy weekends on calendar.
Hotel is very impressive with lots of attention to detail and you feel like you are on a wild west film set. Our room was in the main city hall building and was big, very clean and a lovely bathroom, it had a real feel of wild west luxury.We stayed half board, breakfast was manic probably due to bank holiday but the choice was superb, evening dinner was a lot less manic and due to the fact the spainish like to eat quite late, again a great choice of food for everyone.
The hotel was either very busy or strangley very quiet depending on time of day, the hotel has a very large bar area and was never over busy , price of drinks were not bad for hotel, 2.50 euro for glass of wine and 3.50 euros for large beer, after first day the waiter rememberd us and would bring drinks to our table when ever we needed refill ( nice touch).
The hotel is in a great location for theme park, while we were there it was halloween celebrations which were fantastic , with lots of shows and very scarey horror walks. Would definatley recommend coming in hallowen time as was better than anything we have seen in U.K.
Overal a very nice hotel set in tons of authentic grounds, very clean, and good food the only downside for us was the huge amount of people staying over the bank holiday made it a bit manic at times but we would definatley return and would recommend
