“Get Real a true honest review”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Having read a lot of poor reviews before we went, we were probably expecting the worse. Well what a pleasant surprise the place was spotless the Apartment Rooms were spacious and well kitted out.
The hotel its self was also spotless and the ALL the staff were very friendly and polite. Even the so callled grumpy Bar staff, every member of staff made us fell welcome from the very first minute we arrived. OK the food was a bit repetitive but it was fine and fresh. Those who claim that was the worst place they have stayed and it was the worst holiday they have every had maybe should have paid for a 3 or 4 star hotel, rather than expect to pay 2 Star prices and expect VIP services, either that or they must be lives moaners and grumblers. If you want a cheap and cheerful place to stay you will not be disappointed with the Playamar, the location is also good literally 2-3 mins walk from the shops, bars, cafes and beaches.
I would recomend this place to anyone providing they we not looking for Fillet steak, Caviar and fine cusine. I have stayed in worse 4 star hotels than this. Just ignore the poor reviews they are not fair to the Hotel nor the staff. Go there.

Room Tip: Ask for the Apatments next to the Pool

Just returned from Playamar and really enjoyed it. The staff were helpful and friendly; the food was very good with plenty of choice and our room was small but perfectly formed! This hotel is well located close to beaches, restaurants and shops and is excellent value for money. I would not hesitate to return.

Had a 5 day holiday here with a friend and our 3 children. Aged 8 - 12.
My daughter and I went half board and stayed in a very comfortable 1 bedroom apartment with pool view. My friend and her 2 children went all inclusive had a squashed up hotel room 2 beds + camp bed and what was described as a "resort view" more like a car park.
I paid less for the half board and seemed to get a better deal, only thing I really went without was the free drinks till 10pm.
There were no bar snacks for the all inclusive payers which I was surprised about.
The food although repetitive was quite enjoyable. My child is a fussy eater but she managed to fill her plate every night.
The hotel was very clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is excellent the closest beach was a 2 minute walk, there is another beach just 5 minutes away but both were very clean.
The whole resort was incredibly quiet whilst we were there but guess it was the beginning of the season.

Hotel was ok but provided no utensils to allow for self catering. Kettle only arrived on the second day, microwave on the third day but only after several requests for same. Hotel was close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Would go again but not self-catering, maybe all-inclusive?

Went to this hotel with an open mind we had an 1 bedroom apt on an all inclusive basis the apt was big and very clean we went for a week and had maid service 3 times with clean towels and linen if needed they are really trying to improve this hotel they renewed all the beds and new microwaves in apts the week we were there its well placed for beach and bars etc on the down side the management need a lesson in customer services they were very abrupt to the point of rudeness the general staff were nice and helpful also the all inclusive finishes at 12 pm on the day you leave which is a bit bad as we had 2 kids under 5 with us and were left to buy lunch and dinner for them before we left on the whole the food was ok a bit repetative but for 2 star accomodation it was ok would I go back yes but maybe not all inclusive .

Room Tip: rooms in apt block are spacious and have part sea views and overlook the river

We stay 6 nights with breakfast included. The room was large with fabulous view.
The hotel in general was very clean.
Friendly staff in special Cati.
Good location 150m to the beach and in the centre of S illot
Which is a cosy and peaceful place.
