I wanted to dislike the Broncemar due to arriving 6 hours late (thanks Thomas Cook), a rainy day and a room with no hot water and loud music until 3 am. The noise was from a bar ouside of the hotel grounds so the hotel was not responsilble but If noise bothers you then avoid rooms 101 to 121 and all rooms on that side.
However we changed rooms at the 3rd time of asking and with hot water and no noise it was not that bad a hotel. The rooms were fair sized with lots of cupbords/drawers/hanging space etc, kettle, microwave, toaster, fridge, clothes airer, table and chairs and 2 sofas. One room had no hangers the other room did.
The downside is the state of repair (things are botched mended rather than a proper repair). Lack of air conditioning(but the room did not get that hot - maybe wrong season in February). But there was nothing serious and if you want better decor pay more and go more upmarket. The rooms were clean.
Two extras were the room safe at15€/week (in both our rooms the safe worked without paying the money to get the activation code). Neither room safe would accomodate a 13" laptop. Hair driers are also extra but my missus took one with her.
Towels are changed 3 times a week and are smallish threadbare affairs. This is one area the Broncemar needs to improve. I don't know if families get more towels. As a coup[le we got 2 small bath and 2 small hand. If you can take a big fluffy bath towel from home.
We did not try the food as we wanted to be out and about but an upgrade from S/C to AI was 24€ per adult (paid locally). Obviously you would not pay this if you booked AI. We paid about the same eating out but any drinks were extra. Some beers in the room fridge is a cheap option.
The 60's bar in the Costillio centre (a 3 minute walk from the hotel) did a great breakfast at a good price and the chinese restaurant (directly opposite the 60's bar was good for a change). I would not recommend the restaurant adjoined to the hotel (Gambrinus) the one and only meal we had in here was truly awful and the staff were not interested in any complaints.
We hired a car from eco car hire across the road from the hotel and 100 yards or so to the right and got good service at a good price. We did try other car hirers first but there were booked up and even with eco car we had to compromise on the days we wanted. It may be a good idea to book before you go. The tour operator recommened firm was way too expensive compared to the rest (we paid 69€ for 3 days for a Nissan Micra - not forgetting this was low season. They also had a PT Cruiser convertible for anout 200€).
All in all not that bad a hotel unless you want better decor and I can imagine families on a tight budget being especially pleased with the all inclusive but if you are a light sleeper avoid the noisy rooms.
