THIS IS MAINLY A GERMAN & SPANISH HOTEL
We arrived, after being delayed at Manchester for 3 hours then another 2 hours at Palma for our bags to come through, we was then told the same old "NO ROOM AT THE INN" story like most people were getting on here. We was plonked into a taxi and sent to Luna Park or German Hotel of the week!! This hotel was ok for one night it was clean the food was ok and beds were quite comfy and we were absolutely wrecked after being awake all previous night so just had couple of beers and slept.
Next day (Saturday) arrived back at Palma Bay at 10am got our wristbands and key for luggage storage and told we was in acapulco which is one of the best blocks to be in and we got 2 tickets for the aquarium worth 40 euros which was well worth it as aquarium has a 82metre shark tank largest in europe & only 1.5 euro on bus and free return with your aquarium ticket.
Rooms in here were huge had 2 single beds and a sofa tv etc - beds were rock hard tho.
So lucky not to be staying down the road as Nubia & Sahara are well out of sight of hotel - Gobi is spitting distance so imagine not too bad. Nubia is opposite an all night cafe bar and on the main bus route so from what people said who we talked to it was very noisy.
Our hotel room was cleaned every day - the food was terrible apart from the jelly and rice pudding lol - but i still filled my 7 bellys tho as was hungry.
Drinks at pool bar were ok if you got the spirits (vodka etc) beer was really watered down and the cocktails were ready mixed in a dispensing machine and think it had been shown the alcohol but none put in it lol
When the coffee machine was working it was ok
The shows at night were like a cheap butlins act only repeated in about 6 languages - but this is mainly a german & spanish resort none of the uk operators (Thomas cook etc) come to el arenal.
The parrot show was ok but paying 15 euros for what you thought was gonna be 2 high quality pics took the mick we got told we get 2 professional hiqh quality pics we got a big pic and a little one free both the same picture tho!!!
My advice get out at night go down the front loads of good bars including the sportsmans liverpool bar that has all the premier games on and english beer if u want it for 3 euro
Also go down to Double Dutch (Happy Days) Bar they speak really good english and make you feel really welcome also their cocktails blow u away decent beer too 3.50 euro for beer 5 euro for strong cocktail also lots of free shots throughout night we was drunk the night before our day trip.
I can understand the negative comments of people getting stuck out in nubia & sahara & gobi its a bit of a hike up the hill from them back to the main hotel for ur meals etc. We paid extra before we went to guarantee main hotel. If u wanna upgrade when there its 70 euro per week extra.
Staff were nice & friendly and Maria the customer services manager is helpful & friendly if u dont go kicking off on her like some people did about their rooms.
Would say this a 2* not 3* but we had great views from our balcony and loved the weather - wouldnt go back tho as it so expensive with the euro
