We just got back from a very cheap all inclusive holiday at La Pinta. For the price paid I can't fault the hotel!
LOCATION - is a big plus for the hotel. It takes only a minute to walk to a very lovely beach and the hotel is situated in the centre of the resort so you can take walks either way in the shopping area or on the nice promenade. A good selection of restaurants for all budgets are close by. Right behind the hotel there is an English pub.
The resort is a quiet one, very popular with Germans, but there are things to do for all ages - there are 2 very nice play parks and a couple of night clubs.
STAFF - very friendly, helpful and hardworking. Juan and Fran behind the bar are a laugh. Friendly staff at reception too. They also speak both English and German.
FOOD - it was a-mazing! Now, if you expect to still get your usual pub grub is best you don't go all inclusive. At all. As I stated there are English pubs in the resort and a good choice of restaurants.
Breakfast: was the same everyday but very big choice, so there was no need to eat the same thing everyday. I think it was accommodating all nationalities with the selection. Coffee wasn't very nice for us though.
Lunch and Dinner: there was always fish on, which I liked, then two other types of meat, soup, salad bar with very nice tomatoes, chips, rice, pasta, puddings, fresh fruit. Everything was lovely, very tasty and I ended up having double servings as I liked it so much. My favourite was the garlic pesto fish and the homemade battered calamari.
Snacks: fruit and sandwiches are available at the pool bar in between meals, there is also an ice cream freezer.
DRINKS - for all inclusive there is San Miguel available, local spirits (which the bar staff pour plenty of), wines, soft drinks and slushies at the pool bar.
ROOM - it was very standard, but clean. There is a safe in the room (for which you need to pay at reception if you wish to use it), but no ironing facilities. Our room faced the English pub but still had a bit of a sea view (which was not requested, therefore a plus). The bed was a bit soft for me, but I liked the pillow. My husband needed an extra pillow which was brought 5 min after requesting it.
The room was cleaned every day and bath towels changed.
ENTERTAINMENT - wasn't anything spectacular. There was a singer on one night (which I prefer to the miming acts I saw to other more posh hotels) and we had bingo another night. Two nights we didn't have any entertainment as Euro 2012 was on; one night Spain played, another England played and people preferred to watch the matches (although there was one guy who played music for us).
But that's alright, we actually enjoyed going out of the hotel after a few drinks for a walk around Cala Millor.
We would definitely go back and we recommend the hotel.
