Reviewed August 16, 2012

Just got back from a week here, had the best time ever! we got 2 children aged 6 and 4 and there was more than enough for them to do, the new slides etc located at zoraida park is fantastic!!
the food was nice, alot of choice. rooms nicely decorated. staff very friendly. we stayed on the all-inclusive band and wasnt disappointed.
plenty of bars and snack bars, staff always at hand to serve you.Alot of spanish guests (aug) and we found the entertainment catered for them mainly. great location on the beach front.
only downside was the sunloungers get 'claimed' early on!!!!! people getting up early hours, we personally just went to the pool afta breakfast about 11am and got afew then.
we enjoyed the train which stops outside hotel evry 40mns or so, which cost about 16euros for a family of four. it takes you around and about sightseeing which was nice!. few shops over road from hotel and few bars. we also got local bus 2 the castle and harbour which was nice aswell. HIGHLY recommend to familys

Room Tip: we stayed in room 360 on the 3rd floor nice view (front of hotel) thou we requested pool view (extra...

Just taken a couple of days to unpack and settle back home after 1 full on week in this hotel. I stayed with my family of 7 adults and 5 children ages 18 months to 5 years. Adult pool for swimming and aerobics and the children's pools with water slides all very clean and tidy, as was the sunbathing area. The children were kept happy and entertained in the pool for most of the day and with the beach just across the promenade everyone was happy. We stayed all Inclusive and it was worth it just for the drinks and ice cream which would have been expensive. The food in general was not the best quality! I soon realised the omelet bar was the best option for breakfast there your omelet was freshly made for you, you could also get freshly fried eggs to your liking. After a couple of days the snack bars became preferable for lunch. Evening meal not to the standard you would expect from a 4 star hotel and only the house wine (which was awful) came with the all inclusive package even though Cava was included at the bars. We also ate out one evening. We thought the onsite pizzeria would be a welcome change but soon found you have to pay and the all inclusive option only provides a discount voucher. The hotel is lovely, the rooms are large and kept clean and cool with the air-con. The bar staff in every bar were very good and friendly and the kids loved the disco! wouldn't say the same for the restaurant staff, although to be fair it gets very busy. The outside area wins it for this hotel and it's location on the beach. For a family holiday it was ideal if only they did a B&B option!!

First time we have been to this hotel but will definitely be going back again.
I can only agree with everything Lesley150 says.Although not full on the first week, both hotels were full on week 2. Several reviews mention queues for meals. We found that this was due to the locals who tend to eat later than us Brits. Get to the restaurant within the 1st hour of opening and there isn't a problem. All staff were very friendly and helpful in every area of the hotel. Tried to book a late checkout room (cost was 36euros) at reception but as the hotel was fully booked none were available. The manager, however, said no problem, use the pool. beach etc and in both gents and ladies toilets they had showers with towels. Just request key at reception. Found both rooms had two shoers with cupboards full of fresh clean towels and shower/hair gel etc. so saved on this cost. Plenty of choice at every meal for even the most difficult eater. Would highly recommend this complex and will definitely be returning.

just arrived home from a two week stay at this hotel, me my hubby and our 7 year old. The pool and the outside surroundings was great, water slides, pirate ships for the kids brilliant , lovely big clean pools with lots of lifeguards large sunbathing areas with loungers and parasols. You do need to get up early to reserve a sunbed though. Drinks, nuts, crisps, ice cream, milkshakes even cava and sangria and coffee are avalible all day long from the poolside bars. Bedrooms lovely and clean, good air conditioning and even a mini fridge to store cool drinks ect in. Hotel in its self fairly modern and clean, the toilets though smelt very unpleasent !!,
The biggest let down of the holiday was the hotels restaurant, it is ment to be 4 star but the plates, glasses and cutlery was filthy dirty, and the food was disgusting, we knew we was going to a predominatly Spainish resort and had no problem eating Spainish food but the food on offer was disgusting !!!! everything was cold the meats were raw and still had blood coming from them, fish was under cooked and raw, we attempted to eat in there twice and the food was that bad we just avoided it full stop. We ate out every morning, lunch and dinner. I am not fussy with food and enjoy a wide range of continental foods but the food served at this hotel was just inedible. I would recommend this hotel for the pools and its location and a nice small town and the drinks but i would strongly advise that if you have booked here take extra money so you eat else where.

Room Tip: choose a room away from the entertainment area as its very very very loud till about one in the morn...

The first time i visited this complex was 2 years ago and in this time it has come on immensely, gaining another star rating making it 4 star now.
We booked through Thomas Cook and stayed in the Zoraida Gardens part of the complex on all inclusive. The pool at the Zoraida Gardens is large and spacious and certainly when we were there it was very quiet meaning getting a sunbed was easy at any time of the day,
Our room had 2 double beds, flat screen TV with a couple of English speaking news channels, bathroom with bath and shower over the bath, mini bar (un-stocked), safe (deposit required) and a nice balcony with a fab sea view. Air con was not turned on at this time of year although we were having a bit of a heatwave and so the ceiling fan was needed and worked a treat.
Outside there is a bar/snack bar where you can get drinks while you are at the pool and then another bar for the evening which has indoor and outdoor areas and entertainment in the inside part. When the summer gets going there is an outside entertainment area for shows etc. They also use this during the day for activities. And there is also a disco open certain nights for those who want to keep the beer flowing :)
Food in the main restaurant was good with a nice variety and show cooking available too. We found it funny to see the chef in the picture in the brochure behind the counter! Breakfast had a good variety of food too and the chef makes pancakes to order.
If you are staying at the Gardens and have kids, just take a walk next door to the Zoraida Park and there are the new waterslides along with a pirate ship and a really great kids pool. You can use the facilities of either hotel and getting from one to the other takes literally a minute.
The beach is directly in front of the hotel and is sand and shingle. Very quiet which we were told was because the Spanish do not go into the sea until mid summers day so make the most of it by travelling before then! I can't see it being busy after that to be honest though as there is such a lot of it.
I really loved the Zoraida, the staff were excellent and we had a comfortable stay.
Free wi-fi in all areas too, just ask reception for a code that lasts for 2 hours and then you can get another code when the 2 hours has run out.
Any questions, just ask and i'll do my best to answer.

Room Tip: High floors (4/5) have some excellent views

Stayed at the Zorida Gardens on all inclusive again. The hotel was full to bursting as was the sister hotel Zorida Park so much so we all got a glass of champaign on the Sunday evening meal. Lovely to be back. Staff just as welcoming as before. Room spotless. Clean towels daily. Nothing too much trouble for staff.The food although self seving was plentiful more than enough different dishes to suit everyone. Activities during the day if you wanted. Some very good entertainment at night in both hotels so you could choose which you wanted.There wasnt a lot of English people there more Spanish and some German but everyone pleasant. A small English child in our group and was fussed over by the staff and visitors. We actually got to practice some of the Spanish we had tried to learn although the staff could speak reasonable English. Got the bus to various places.Was sorry we hadnt booked for two weeks. Would recommend this Hotel to anyone. Yes we are going back!.

This is a fantastic quality hotel, very spanish this gives you a chance to try some new words. This is a quiet area beside the sea, nice and relaxing. I will be returning again. This was our second time here. The entertainment could be better for kids but my 8 year old daughter still loved it. The only down side was a rather rude member of staff shouted at my daughter and wagged his finger at her when she was leaning against a wall, it would have been more courteous to explain the issue to me rather than terrify an eight year old
