4 star hotel with 2 star food
it got better on our 2nd week but there is alot of fish & pork dishes
some of the food wasn't cooked enough especially off the grill
entertainment was ok but catered more for spainish & portugese than the british
staff were pleasant enough
location was ok about 10 mins to the beach
we were all inclusive which i would recommend because the drinks are expensive in the hotel
overall for the mony it wasn't too bad
would go back to fanabe but not this hotel

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for 10 nights, on a half board basis between 10th-20th June 2008.

RECEPTION

When we arrived at this hotel I was very happy with the check in, the staff were very helpful and explained everything in english. We hired the safe in our room when we were checking in and it only cost 28 euros for the 10 days, that included a 10 euro deposit which we got back when we checked out.

ROOM

The room was exactly like the pictures we seen when we were booking this holiday, very clean (maids cleaned room everyday), spacious and the beds are huge compared to some of the hotels I have stayed in.

FOOD

We thought the breakfast was great but the dinner buffet was not very varied. Most nights I just had pasta and chips.
If you like alot of fish then you will love the dinner buffet.

POOL AREA

There is a large pool area, always room for everyone but this is where all the children are so can be quite noisy.
I prefered to go to the roof top terrace, there is a seperate area for nudist sunbathing and a large area for non-nudist sunbathing if thats not your thing. There is two roof top pools, not very big but good for when it gets to warm.

Well what can i say?the hotel was ok rooms very spacious an kept very clean by the maids every day.Make sure you ask for the 4th floor with a sea view.the hotel was very busy mainly spanish an portugese holidaymakers.mealtimes was absolutley chaotic,paddington station in the rush hour.scenes from Oliver standing in a queue waiting for a portion from the hot plates.if you didnt have anyone to watch your table when you came back from the buffet with your food,it was taken .The spanish an portugese take no prisoners.On more than one occasion the food wasnt cooked properly(this is food off the hot plates)ive been in a lot better 4*hotels,im sorry to say,would i recommend it,to my friends not really,the restaurant side lets it down badly.im not a snob but i like my meals in a civilised fashion,an a proper dress code at nights.also id be damned if i pay for a bed by the pool,these should be free.

Excellent hotel going back for 4th stay in october. Read reviews about food and i totally dont agree. My boyfriend is a very picky eater and he loves it. We are both in our mid 20's and find it a great place to stay, walking distance to beach apart from the hill kills you on the way back up. And walking distance to all bars. And all the shops and supermarket are just over the road. All in all the rooms are great, staff are friendly and its a great price.!!!! ++++++++ very clean, which is the main thing.

Just Returned from this holiday after having an excellant time. Having read previous reviews I was worried about the food, I needn't have. The food during our stay was excellant. Cooked to our request and when we completed a survey and stated veg could be a bit cold at times this was immediately rectified. Requested room on 4th floor with sea and pool view and got them. Maria the Receptionist must be the nicest, helpful receptionist we've ever come across. Nothing was too much trouble. Cleaning staff and entertainment staff all very nice too. One bar waiter could have smiled more but over all lovely hotel, excellant service, great food, nice rooms. Can't recommend it enough. One down side though, we were not charged for sunbed mattresses during our stay as the pool bar was being renovated. however, on last day this stopped and we were chared 1 euro 20 per bed. A bit much for 4 star hotel to be charging, felt these should be free.

Me & my boyfriend (both late 20's) booked a weeks holiday at the beginning of June to stay all-inclusive at the Fanabe Costa Sur Hotel. I just wanted to say that I highly recommend the hotel & the area for anyone looking to go on a good holiday.

Even though we were all inclusive, we tended not to eat lunch at the hotel, or to eat our evening meal every night as we do like to venture out, but if you have kids, I reckon it is ideal to keep the cost down! We ate breakfast there every morning. When we did eat in the restaurant the food was as most Spanish hotels, nothing too different, but clean and never cold! Whenever I asked for a glass of white wine with my meal, they brought a full jug which was great!

The service in the bar was absolutely fantastic, with some good entertainment on too. If your drink neared the bottom, regardless of how busy they were, the waiters/resses were straight over asking if you wanted more! My only problem was that the free drinks finished at 11pm, as we normally went out around the area, and returned after the drinks had finished!

All in all, definitely go if you are considering it.
