We have just returned from the Hotel Abrat having spent two weeks half board and our overall impression was that this is a great place to stay. The rooms are spacious with plenty of wardrobe space and although perhaps in need of a makeover, as far as bedcovers and curtains are concerned, the accommodation is spotlessly clean. Not only are the rooms cleaned every day, fresh towels are supplied. Despite the hotel's age, the foyer and lounge is attractively decorated and furnished and the dining room is clinically clean and pleasant to have meals in. The food is excellent! There is a more than adequate choice for breakfast, ranging from cereals, rolls, croissants and sliced bread which can be toasted. Boiled or fried eggs, bacon and sausages are available every day. Sliced cheeses and cold meat are always on the breakfast menu. Beverages such as tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also provided. What I find strange about Spanish hotels is that you never get real fruit juice considering that citrus fruits are widely grown in Spain. The Abrat is no exception, the juices are like sugary flavoured water, so perhaps this is our only criticism. Evening meals are of a very high quality with plenty of choice. During our stay, there were always meat, fish, pasta or rice dishes as well as the odd vegetarian meal. The food on the hotplates was regularly replenished. Chips were on the menu every night but it would seem that although they are the least healthy option, they are very popular. We certainly did not see plates of abandoned food or people turning their noses up at what was on offer. I would suggest that holidaymakers who have commented on the food being 'disgusting', 'inedible' or 'too Spanish' should either go to Skegness or stay at home. We have been in 4 and 5 star hotels in Spain in the past where menus do not entirely live up to our expectations or the hotel's star ratings. I think the Abrat, for us, had one of the best restaurants by far.
The bar again is well run and immaculate. Our only negative comment would be that, like any hotel in the world, everything is overpriced. Regarding entertainment, we never spent evenings in the hotel so are unable to pass comment on what was provided.
The pool area is well maintained and cleaned daily and there is absolutely no problem finding a sunbed. Leading off from the pool there is an attractive garden which is partly shaded by trees. Here, a childrens' play area and tennis courts are provided as well as access to the beach.
Throughout our time in the Abrat, the staff were always helpful, approachable and efficient.
We will definitely go back to the Abrat it is a gem of a place.
Close to the Abrat there are lots of pubs, cafes, shops and restaurants. It is about fifteen to twenty minutes walk to the West End which we actually enjoyed. The other route to the West End is around the coast, which is more scenic and just as enjoyable a walk except that it takes considerably longer. The nearer you are to the hub of San Antonio, the more expensive the prices. We actually found a small bar on the edge of the West End, 'The Willow Tree' that sold every drink for half price. We also found the bars in San Antonio Bay were cheaper for food and drinks.
All in all a great holiday.
