Lovely hotel, beautifully clean, lovely bright bedrooms.
Just returned from a weeks holiday( 3rd April-10th) and I was with Saga for this holiday.
This is the first time that I have had to buy bottled water and pay a deposit for beach towels. !!We were supposed to have had fresh fruit in our rooms but we never received any. The food was good but always just tepid and if we complained we were pointed in the direction of a microwave....not good enough.The bar staff were the rudest, ignorant people I had ever met. I walked up to the bar to order drinks and was told " You are Saga...you come here and sit there" and we had a small allocated area in which we were only served at. The other guests were waited on and had free peanuts with their drinks. We really were treated like second class citizens!!The entertainment was watching the Spanish dancing ballroom dancing every night with the same dire singers. It was awful! One evening we had a show but it was after the dancing finished after 11 pm ( by which time I had lost the will to live) It was also freezing in the lounge areas and I didn't fancy sitting in my coat until the small hours!We did have a film night one evening. The film was "Out of Africa"! Meryl Streep was around 19 years old in it....shows how old the film was. Again, not good enough.
The hotel boasts an outside pool and sitting area....very tiny and simply inadequate
Would I go back??? Not in a million years
