My partner didn't like it one bit, from the pulling up and seeing line dancing to the pools full of leaves...I'm 35 and my partner is 29, and we have just returned from Lanzarote about a month prior to this and we just wanted a quick return abroad for a cheap price. We had that with this, under £200pp and I was satisfied we got what we paid for. We stayed in probably the worst rooms the hotel had to offer in the gobi building, there were better. In whole the room was clean and cleaned every day, the room was small but ample for a couple as we only used it to sleep In ! The only bad thing with the room was the balcony with an all round view of 2metres to a wall each way then a drop to the concrete at the bottom, which was kinda eerie! I'm not much of an experimenter with food ill be honest so I didnt eat much, however don't judge food on me, I don't even like cheese! My partner ate plenty every day and the food was varied. The snack bar was pitiful mind! Staff, well...some were ok, some were very rude! The hotel as my partner put it was a nightclub for the oap's...and mostly spanish, who come here for a break with dominoes, cards, line dancing and bingo plentiful...the staff and hotel cater mainly for these...and so we were turned away from the main bar often and told to go to the other side where the British seemed to be placed. Didn't stop me drinking plenty...I got my moneys worth...had I paid more I would have complained. But I was happy I got what I paid for. My main gripe however was that yeah you could drink as much as you want from a small coffee size carton, as pints weren't available, that was however only until all inclusive stops at 11pm and the pint glasses are introduded for €4 each!! Figure that...we went elsewhere after that, Tony's burger bar round corner sells pints for €2 which was recomended by Hannah behind the bar...If its just a base your looking for and a clean room, you'll be fine just don't have many exectations. It did need a big clean up for the summer, but I imagine it can be made to look much better, there were many pools but only one usable as the rest were full of leaves and dirt. It suggests on here that there is lots on offer to do and the hotel team are always lively and entertaining on an evening...well other than a bingo caller and DJ For the line dancing, there isn't anything at all in the way of entertainment! Its about 5 min from main front which isn't much better to be fair...beach wasn't much cop, was very dirty after a local storm, it hadn't been cleaned we were told due to the Olympic sailors training in the bay. Further round it was ok. Wasn't impressed with Arenal to be fair, all we did was drink, as there's nothing else to do...though we were out of season! Magaluf is a trek, but we did it and had a much better night, lively, though I'm not much of a clubber it was a refreshing change to see peoople having fun...all in all for me, if this is all I can afford its a cheap holiday and I would come back, probably alone however as my partner wont return, but personally, its ok as a base for couples to venture out, not for families, I wouldnt take my kids here at all. It is what you make of it, if your that way out anyway you'll hate it, but go open minded and be prepared to make you holiday and you'll be fine.
