Me and my boyfriend visitied this hotel end of September.
The hotel is only 10 minutes ( if that ) from the airport so the taxi cost each way is about 12 euros.
The room was ready on our arrival and was spotlessly clean. All the utilities you would expect, kettle, toaster, microwave, pots and pans, utensils ( including bottle opener which is always useful ) Balcony was a lovely size too for the fact we were in a Studio room. If you paid extra and had a Bed apartment the balconies are HUGE !! FREE air con which is brilliant.
The only issue is the walls are really really thin, not too bad because the age range for the hotel is aimed more for the older traveller so are generally quieter........ but we did have a couple of young girls next to us and they were loud. Maybe because we were at the end of the corridor and had an interconnecting door, if this was not there it may have been a bit quieter. You learn though and next time we will request a non interconnecting room or pay for a 1 bed apartment instead.
The pool area was lovely and one day we were the only people by the pool !! As the hotel didn't have too many British people there the pool area tended to get a bit busier from about 3pm. Sun loungers were lovely and comfortable and there were Parasols too, they were free of charge which we did need a couple of days as the pool area at this hotel is a sun trap. Pool is not heated so is cold but after the sun has been on it for a while its fine.
The managers in this hotel work all the hours under the sun and are on reception one minute and making food the next. The food was lovely on site and cheap and I got a proper Spanish Sangria served which was lovely.
The seating area outside on the terrace was beautiful and feels really homely.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel to families with young children looking for entertainment or family friendly pool area as there was a slightly more shallow pool but there is no entertainment and no kids club. ( This is not a bad thing against the hotel and we loved the fact we could have a nice quiet drink without the forced entertainment in our faces )
The hotel is about 5 minutes from the town centre and there are an array of bars and restaurants and all types of food that you could want. The resort was bigger than we thought so even for a 2 or 3 week holiday you could eat somewhere different every night.
For people looking for English bars there is Mel's bar and Poppys..... both serving english food and drink if you are homesick.
It was nice but personally I liked the fact there were really local restaurants with Spanish people in them serving fresh fish, meats, paella's etc etc and they were amazing !!
In all we had a fantastic time and hope that C'an Pastilla stays the way it is as its a beautiful part of the island and you really feel that its a lovely traditionally spanish resort with a mix of nationalities going there.
We will definately be back !!
