|As we are very fussy travellers we spent months looking for a place which would tick all our boxes. We were still very apprehensive when we booked Punta Prima Prestige as we are not fans of all inclusive holidays but we thought that it would suit better as this time we travelled with children.
I can only say there was absolutely nothing to fault, we had an amazing holiday and we only regret that we could not stay longer. The place is fabulous- spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The prestige area is quite secluded and you feel very secure and relaxed. All activity/entertainment is going on on the other side of the resort so Prestige area is an oasis of tranquillity and serenity.
The staff is fantastic! So friendly and caring. They can not do enough for you. We would like to mention our bar manager Jose and waiters Carlo and Luca and thank them for their hospitality and excellent service. They also organised a lovely surprise and a special breakfast for me on my birthday:-)
Receptionists are all very polite and friendly and always ready to help. It was very kind of them to send a bottle of champagne and fruits plate into our room on my birthday. I was really spoiled whole day:-)
Food was absolutely delicious. We had breakfast and dinner in the main restaurant Nuro in Prestige area. Fantastic choice for breakfast-cereals, different ham and cheeses, pate, fresh breads, pastries, big selection of fruits and juices, eggs and pancakes cooked to your order. Dinner – fresh lobsters, fish, langoustines, different types of red and white meats, including kangaroo cooked in front of you as well as lovely pre-cooked dishes. The only thing I would probably comment on is the dinner timing. We felt that our 15 months old baby was a bit struggling with a late dinner ( 7pm) as normally he is ready for bed this time. So we all would be happier to have dinner slightly earlier. However nothing spoiled our holiday.
We had lunch in the main restaurant on the other side of the resort. Probably not as posh as in the Prestige area but again variety of freshly cooked tasty dishes. Someone commented on kids menu serving chicken nuggets. We did not bother to look at kids buffet as our 10 years old and 15 months old were happy to eat paella, soups, stews and salads from main buffet.
Once we had a lunch in Italian restaurant El Faro which was fine. We also pre-booked table there for my birthday but then cancel our reservation and stayed in our main restaurant Nuro which was just a different class.
Our room was very spacious with a separate lounge and 2 bathrooms. It was cleaned every morning and beds were prepared every evening. It was located close to a private gate leading to the village and beach which was literally 2 minutes walk. Beach is lovely and very clean and really good for the families with small children. Sun beds (2) and parasol cost 15 euro for a day.
Pool area is fantastic and the bar by the pool serves drinks of a very good quality. Nice relaxing music, comfortable sun beds with thick soft mattresses and good quality towels provided! What else would you want?:-) As we were there in the end of the season, there was no problems to find a bed available, but I don’t think there is a problem in the middle of the season either.
There is a mini market on the main part of the resort. However, a village centre is much closer to Prestige area and has variety of shops and restaurants.
I had 2 treatments in the SPA which is located on the main side of the resort. They are quite pricy but Yolanda who did my treatments definitely knew what she was doing. Very professional and very enjoyable. Thank you:-)
Overall, we had a fantastic holiday! We would NOT:-) recommend this hotel to anyone as we want to keep it for ourselves. We are definitely returning back next year:-)
