Reviewed September 19, 2013

just spent 10 nights here and had a good time. The rooms however are pot luck, some apartments appear to be lived in all year round and are private,others are owned by the complex.... was originally given one facing the rear which looked a little dated with the furniture and dark green colours. we asked to be moved after two nights to one facing the pool as the noise of the 20 minute bin collections at 5am prevented any sleep. the 2nd apartment we were given was much better with much more a welcoming interior. main niggles are a lack of microwave air conditoning and pay tv. however it was clean and reasonably quiet round the front. i would stay again for the price if given a pool view room again. very friendly and welcoming staff and also they have a laundry room which is great for washing towels.

10 days here from 1st July 2013! Rooms very dated but clean! Didn't eat in the hotels restaurant so can't comment! Close to the sand dunes on the beach! But if you want a sun lounger its about 25 minute walk! Not many English in the hotel! About 15 minutes to the yumbo centre but taxi cost about 2.50 Euro so cheep as chips! We didn't get a free room extension it cost us 10Euro which isn't a bad price compared to other hotels I have been too but clearly some people are given free extensions and others are charged which is unfair! The pool does not open until 10am and there is no sun on the pool until about 11:45! You get what you pay for - if you want a nice hotel then stay elsewhere and pay more! If you don't mind where you stay and want somewhere Very basic with no atmosphere stay here! I am not saying its an awful hotel but before I stayed here and read the reviews on here I was expecting a much better hotel.

We just came back from a last minute, cheap, week in Los Aguacates; a very good, Spanish 3 star hotel. The location for us was super - right near the dunes/beach and only a short walk to the Yumbo centre. There are also no bars or nightclubs near or around the hotel, so you won't be disturbed at night (the hotel is facing the nice Riu Palace overlooking the dunes).

The room itself is a typical Spanish self-catering apartment - yes it's dated, but it's clean (and was cleaned regularly) tidy and had a large balcony. There was also a small supermarket underneath the hotel on the corner, which was great for breakfast croissants and juice.

Worthy of a mention was Alejandro on the reception area. He was extremely helpful and polite - we were also offered a complimentary parasol for the beach, worth asking if you want to save yourself some Euros. On our last day, as our taxi for the airport wasn't until 10pm, we were allowed extended (free) use of the room, since it wasn't due to be taken until the day after. A very appreciated gesture.

One final thing - the hotel has an outside shower/toilet block (handy if you've checked out early) and a laundry block, with free soap powder. One euro for a 30 minute wash was super value, and great if you have kids. Overall, I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Choose a room that overlooks the back/reception area of the hotel - this gets the sun in the morning...

Great Stay here at Los Aquacates, the restaurant waiters are excellent at their job and made the stay enjoyable real professional service, if not the hotel owners they should be rewarded with pay rise.
Pleasant hotel with good facilitys towels changed daily and rooms cleaned daily.
near the beach like 50 - 100 yards,
with its own supermarket too. cant fault the place :) hotel reception offered to wake me at 3am for my transfer to airport nice touch, room safes only 3 euros per day.

Second time here and only tiny issues. Hotel itself is pleasant in a quiet area but only a stones throw from beach. Supermarket next door, very convenient. Staff were fantastic, easy check in, very friendly cannot fault the. Good pool with loads of loungers. Room very nice and spotlessly clean, housekeepers were great too, in fact nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Only niggle TV was small and showed predominantly German and Spanish channels , also cost a euro, but hey I wasn't there to watch TV. 10 minute walk to Yumbo and 5 minutes to Cita. All in all I love this place and will stay again in September

Room Tip: Some rooms have microwave. Godsend for solo traveller.

We think that this is a great place to stay. Fabulous location for the dunes and close to most things that you would want in GC. The rooms are basic but very clean & are cleaned every day. The manager is really friendly & helpful. If you have a late flight on your last day there is a shower room for you to get freshened up in. The on site supermarket has everything that you need at very competitive prices.
We also met a lovely Norwegian couple who were very kind when my wife was taken ill. If you read this M&A please contact us:)

Originally we had booked hotel "Veril Playa" overbooking but because we were offered this. Conditions are good. All pechalku brighten machine issued to us for free for the entire stay. As compensation for a different location. Breakfast is decent, but not dinner. solid 3 points.
