Asked for a ground floor room , got it ! on the top level,very nice, very clean, great selection of food , when you consider they have to provide something for everyone from lots of different countries , i say well done to them !
Short walk to the very nice Marina with a Market twice a week
Short walk to the Beach area and shops etc
Didnt watch any entertainment so can't comment
All inclusive is well worth it
And the heated pool is a wow !
Will go back !

Room Tip: If you want quiet days then go on to the top Daytime entertainment is on the lower level with tthe...

We have just returned from three very enjoyable weeks at this complex. We were worried having seen some unfavourable reviews but our apartment was terrific. Yes the complex is a bit tired but while we were there lot's of painting was taken place. The staff were friendly and our maid looked after us more than well. We were self catering so I cannot rate the food, but we always take our own beakers for tea and coffee!! This was a super holiday and we definitely would go back there.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better here.

Stayed 4 April for 1 week.. Arrived at reception to book in, that's when alarm bells went off. My wife an I were gave a small map an told our room was 1051.the instructions to reach the room,non existent,.the room was tatty, every piece of furniture has had better days.the smell of urine in bathroom was awful. I asked to be moved at reception. The guy asked why and when I explained he said the hotel was full (lies) and he would send someone to fix the problem. It seems the man sent to fix this sprayed the worst air freshener ever,problem fixed. I then discovered what problem was, when I showered the water came up beside the toilet and flooded bathroom an went into living room. All this before we had settled.The television remote is 10 euro deposit, it didn't work.Then came the food. AWFUL!! Simple as that, woeful food, don't matter if it's breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's all woeful..some examples--goat or rabbit. The best about the food was the salad.Its the worst all inclusive I've ever went to. The staff though are great, they try there best, but there fighting a losing battle. There were dead cockroaches on path for 4 days, (probably ate something in hotel)they were still there on Friday 11 April when I left.a family we met had an iPhone stole from there room. Snacks during the day are cheese sandwiches behind the 1 bar. If you want a pizza, you have to pay. Safe is 17 euro a week!! The paint in rooms has been touched up to cover marks on walls over the years, but they didn't use the same paint. People say you get what you pay for, well, I paid 900 pound for a weeks all inclusive with flights from Belfast, so not cheap!! I met and spoke to loads of great people and everyone was of the same opinion. This place needs revamped. The staff deserve better for the job they do. The customers deserve better for there hard earned money. I'm struggling now to believe some of these so called reviews. I apologise for this long review but really I could go on about how woeful this place is. If you have any questions or queries please ask, I'll certainly reply. I hope the (manager) non existent answers me on here.

Stayed here last two weeks of March,requested a sunny balcony which I got,appartment as expected everything I needed for self-catering,except the cups were minute!! the only complaint.

Hotel was full but plenty of space around pool,upper pool used,very few sunbeds reserved with towels.

Self-catering and solo ,so only used shop,lady on reception very friendly on arrival.

Ideal location ,straight down to the beach,10 minutes and equidistant rubicon or Playa Blanca old town and harbour,slow 20 mins along coastal promenade.

Stayed here last about 8 years ago and will stay again next year.

Weather was great sunny nearly all the time and lots of wind!!,making it very comfortable ,-perfect

1/4/2014 to 8/4/2014. On night of arrival all inclusive, first room, cold. damp musty and lounge awash with rain water. Offered other rooms until settling on the best of 3. Still requires a complete makeover, curtains off rails, threadbare towels and table cloths, poor paintwork and level of cleaning very poor. Around pools, sunbeds need good clean and many broken. Ants in kitchenette area. Dining room adequate, food good variety and reasonable quality although a couple of roaches were pounced upon by the waiters . Some strong smells from time to time. Overall needs a damn good makeover

Room Tip: Inspect room thoroughly before un-packing

Having stayed elsewhere in PB wasn't expecting much but we were perfectly happy with this hotel. We were self-catering so no comments on food.
Plus points: location pretty good for harbour, 'town' and marina; nice layout of grounds reasonably maintained and one heated pool; spacious apartments (we had two balconies in our one bedroom apartment); had requested upstairs, out of the way apartment and been given just that so request taken note of; comfy beds and plenty hot water in a decent shower; reception staff very helpful.
Minus points: everything a bit tatty, particularly sunloungers, half of which were broken and all of which looked ancient; horrible rubber mattress covers on beds; worst by far lack of noise insulation, you could hear pretty much everything from downstairs and next door.

Room Tip: Upstairs better.
