In the past we have stayed at larger, all inclusive hotels which leave you feeling numb and with their corporate, production line style holiday. This year we made a conscious decision to try something a little different. Thomson describes this as hotel as being ‘Small & Friendly’ which proved to be an understatement. Every single member of staff was friendly and helpful, in particular the waitresses and reception staff. An example of this; we had a night flight and a late pick up from the hotel. The bar staff had offered us blankets to sleep on, a chap from reception and one of the waitresses stayed after their shifts to wave us off.
We were well aware that this hotel has had a recent refurbishment and some previous ‘regulars’ were a little critical of this and the new management. The hotel is modern and the work has been carried out to a high standard and although some might find the décor a little ‘1980s Habitat’, it is bright and fun, certainly not a negative. The cleanliness of the hotel was second to none. The food was well cooked and flavoursome. We stayed on a half board basis and overall have no complaints. It would have been nice to have a few more choices but overall, the German styled menu was good, a pleasant change from the usual chips, burgers and cold pizza!
Some reviewers have commented about the bar prices. We’d all love to see JD Wetherspoon prices, alas they are not. I would however reassure people that they are comparable to other bars in the resort.
In a nutshell, if you want a quiet, relaxing beach holiday then this is the Hotel Playas Del Ray is a great place to stay. It is also the ONLY hotel that my wife and daughter have agreed that they would love to return, enough said!!
