We arrived at The Amaika at 10 to midnight and hadn't eaten or drank since we boarded the plane at 15:30 that day but the receptionist told us that we could either get a snack from the restaurant or get a drink from the bar, not both because they both closed at midnight. We chose to eat and had to buy a bottle of water to drink in our room.
This was not the hotel or location we had chosen to spend our break at and we hated every minute. Beat The Brochure had taken my booking for another hotel, and when we got there it was closed!! This was the hotel we were forced to stay in, NEVER AGAIN. The bar staff were very rude and we were made to feel like scroungers. We were told to queue for drinks because we were all inclusive and that they would only bring us our drinks if we paid cash. My partner was made to drink his beer out of half pint glasses because we were AI and we were were only allowed to get 2 drinks at a time. Therefore we spent most of the time queueing. The bed linen was full of holes and the bed was like sleeping on a wooden board. The food was tasteless and never hot, so we had to go elsewhere to eat and drink even though we had already paid in advance for this service. The pool is tiny and not heated and only half of it gets the sun for a couple of hours a day.
I would never recommend this hotel to anyone and would never return.
