We booked a 2 week holiday at the Gropotel Playa Camp De mar but, with hindsight and the remoteness of this Hotel, wished we had only booked a week.
If you want a quiet holiday just sitting by the poolside all day then this is the place to come - set in a lovely bay with a good sized pool and the beach just in front of the pool.
Unfortunately for us we like to get out and about so spent most of the 2 weeks getting buses, taxis or going on excursions.
This is a big Hotel with over 250 rooms and as a result we did not enjoy the dining experience - most nights, if you did not get down when the restaurant opened, you were struggling getting a table more like a canteen than a restaurant although it has to be said that the food was very good.
The other major disappointment was the fact that this Hotel had only 2 x small lifts to serve so many customers - we were on the 3rd floor and spent the 2 weeks walking up and down stairs frustrated that you could never get a lift.
The evening entertainment was quite good but the Thomson Gold standards are certainly not what they used to be.
As we were staying for 2 weeks it was decided that we should treat ourselves and book a suite with a sea view - we were allocated room 315 on the 3rd floor which was OK but appeared to be 2 single rooms knocked through to make one suite - an excellent bathroom / shower room but an awful balcony with little space and no privacy - certainly not worth the additional cost.
Overall we thought the Hotel was in a visually good location but very quiet and remote.
