We went on vacation to Playaballena for 1 week in July, and we were very pleased and surprised with this Hotel.
Being at other Hotels in Spain like RIU and BARCELÓ, we were not expecting this hotel to be better, but we were wrong, it is superior in many aspects. Has some fails also, it's not perfect...
So, what we most liked was:
The room: We had a room at the ground floor, with direct access to the pool and gardens. 2 confortable Beds - For 4 people. Very good.
The pool - So nice, for kids and adults!... With water jets, tobogans, different profundities, security, not noisy and beatiful.
The food - We went on all inclusive, and we were very surprised with the quality of the food. Very superior to Riu Chiclana, although it has less diversity (wich is natural and comprehensive). You can find Sea food, many kinds of fish and meat, and the desserts are good (could be better).
What we didn't like very much was:
- The shows are very late (11 p.m. or later...) and very weak!....(for our taste)
- The beach is very narrow, and they just put hamacas and palapas one day before we came home ( 14 July)
- The employees of the hotel do their job, in a very serious way, don't give many smiles!...
- The all inclusive system is a bit complicated to understand inicially, and they don´t have nothing to eat at the afternoon. We didn't find this very fair... AI should be AI...
But, we liked being there and if you're thinking of going to Costa Ballena, This is a very good choice!
