2/10 Poor

I am never a complainer but please read the points below before booking here: 1. Terrible location: The location of this hotel is legit close to nothing at all so be prepared to spend a lot of money on Ubers and taxis. Also to get to your room it’s like a 10 min walk from reception going through the crystal maze. 2. Unfriendly staff: The reception and kitchen staff are very unfriendly I went to go ask for cutlery and the man chased me out the restaurant telling me I have to pay for some food to use the cutlery. 3. Hygiene: Upon entering all the towels were dirty they had makeup on them and there were ants crawling around on the floor in the room. Our bed was also broken and the fridge was not working. After telling the staff about this they told us to come the following day at 9am to check if any different rooms were available and there was none. The pictures on here also look nothing like the hotel I would never even tell my worst enemy to stay here

6/10 Good

The pool area was really nice and looked modern. However, the rest of the hotel needs updating, including new beds. We booked our room with one double bed and and a pull out couch for our 4 years old son. When we arrived, there was two single beds pulled together and one single folding bed with very tired mattresses on top. For adults to sleep in a"double" bed was impossible without spliting in the middle.. So our little one slep with me whilst my partner on that folding bed!!poor partner slept on a that thing whilst paying , €700 for 6 nights! Electricity needs updating as out bed side ligjtening was connected through extension lead, one light cable was rubbing against the bed for so ling that a protective layer was gone, a bit extreme I would say... Might end up in serious accident if not fixed. In general hotel was clean, butbwould not choose it again as we felt that it is most focussed on Spanish and local visitors, staff (morning shift) did not speak English. My english is third language, but felt that staff should be more trained to serve breakfast as each morning was a little surprice what coffee we gonna get.. Parking was really easy as you can park right outside your room in a shade. In the end, we left disappointed... The money we paid was not worth for the services we received...
