Reviewed September 24, 2012

I was here for 12 days
2 Stars, no swimming pool, only few rooms with balcony, tv in room, but without remote controller. Towels are changed every day, the toilet is washed every day, the bed is not changed, room isn't cleared. Food is ok, but not very different.
Safe costs 4 Euro per day
Reception and stuff are friendly
View from window is to the next hotel with crowd of annoying german school students
So if you have no money for 3* or no choice, it's ok

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony

the hotel is awful. The personal does not speak english and totaly unfriendly. The room needs renovation. The shower was broken, once there was no hot water. No phone, tv or air conditioner in the room. The bed cover was burned with a cigaret. Insects (ants) on the floor. Personnel comes intoo the room even if the sign "do not disturb" is hanged on the door, once they came in without nocking when i was nacked.. For dinner one have to bue WATER, no drinks are included... No activities or entertainment is provided.. and more-more other things.

We have just arrived back home and this hotel is the worst we have every stayed in, we complained on the first day to the travel company, who wanted to charge us to move hotels, we paid £450.00 for a week all inclusive( just for the hotel). The food was very basic, no taste, no selection. Drinks (gin, vodka, rum and beer) only and they stopped serving at 10 pm. We was told it had a pool but it didnt. We had the small rooms on the 5th floor with no balcony, and was overlooked by the next hotel. On the very bad side, someone used the mans toilet floor to do their business on, and it was there all day and night.....on the up side the towels were changed daily, and the beds made...The bathroom was very small and they had painted the bath white in white paint so therefore when we had a shower it peeled off...no entertainment

In all my years of holidays I have never ever stayed in a hotel as bad as this!! How agents can let people book to go here is unbelievable!! The food is totally dire for what is supposed to be an All Inclusive holiday, if you dont like fish you dont eat its as simple as that!! Breakfast consisted of Ham and Cheese...! Not a rasher of bacon or an egg in sight. The receptionist seems to do every job in the hotel, meaning that if you wanted a drink you had to wait until she had finished doing her other jobs first, and then the bar closed at 10 oclock! The basic hygiene in the hotel leaves a lot to be desired, and even when she had been in to clean the rooms, she still left dirty towels either in the bathroom or on the balcony.

Because of this, and also having our 7 year old grandaughter with us, we spent the majority of our time at a nearby hotel, and ended up having to eat out all the time as the food was just inedible.

Room Tip: Dont go there!

If your thinking of staying at the Fragata hotel Please !!! think again, the all inclusive food at this hotel is rubbish, the bar closes at 10pm, and most of the time, ( Monday - Friday ) there is no bar-man to serve you, you therefore have to wait for the receptionist to come over from the reception to serve you. The photograph showing the front of the hotel on the net is a lie, the outside seating and covers do not exist, thease photos are from five years ago when it was joined to the hotel international next door. Some of the rooms have a balcony, however only rooms at the front of the hotel have a decent size balcony, the others at the side of the hotel are only approximately 2ft, wide tapering to about 9ins,also the balconies on the NEXT hotel are about 6ft away, so you are looking into each others rooms, OK i supose if your a perv. SO !!! MY ADVICE IS ,IF YOUR GOING TO THE FRAGATA , CHANGE YOU BOOKING TO SOMEWERE ELSE, !!!! It also say,s on the net,the hotel has a swimming pool, LIES, IT DOES NOT HAVE A POOL AND NO AGREEMENT WITH ANY OTHER HOTEL FOR DUEL USEAGE !!!

Room Tip: Go somewere else!!!

this has possibly been the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. dont be fooled by the price, you will understand why it is so cheap when you arrive there.
all inclusive means all meals, snacks and drinks. you cannot get a drink as there are no staff working behind the bar, the receptionist is the bar staff, so if anyone is booking in, you have to wait upto 1 hour for a drink. when you do eventually get served you cant have 2 drinks ( to save time waiting to get served again) the receptionists ( all of them) tut and slam things down because you are stopping them from doing their paperwork. the food ( or lack of it, should make you laugh, for breakfast you can have burgers with onions or sausages. on our last day, we had a choice of chipolatas or hot dog sausages. havent seen a baked bean, rasher of bacon, fried egg and they dont even posess a toaster, yet they supply 2 baskets of sliced bread, but i am unsure on what you can do with it. then comes lunch time, pork chunks with 1kilo of salt and a gallon of fat served with chips. we were the only english speaking people in the hotel as it caters only for the spanish and occasional german. dinner was as bad as lunch with once again a choice of chicken nuggets or pork all served with chips. the chefs all stand near the kitchen door and watch what you are eating, and when the food tray is empty, they walk back into the kitchen leaving you to think they are getting another, then they re-appear with a tray of wedges of watermellon.i have stayed in some bad hotels, but this one was the worst i have ever seen, the only things that were missing was basil fawlty and manuel ! in fact they didnt have any staff, a hotel run by 3 chefs, 2 receptionist on different shifts 1 waitress and a security guard and if you stay on a sturday or sunday night , you are treated to a bar tender from 7 - 12 even though all inclusive finnishes at 10pm you find it difficult to purchase a drink after 10pm.
my advice.............steer clear . lots of reviews are often left for hotels, and we dont always believe its that bad. you will be foolish if you ignore this......its your holiday and your choice ! please choose wisely.................
