Stayed here with 3 friends as part of an 18-30s holiday, the hotel looks nice in the brocheres, and the main part of the hotel tbf is alright, however we were put in the hotels anex down the road from the main hotel, which was absolutely disgusting, there's no lift, the shower holder was broken meaning we had to hold the shower not only making it hard to have a shower and wash your hair, but meaning the bathroom got covered in water every time anyone used it, and as the drain in the bathroom was blocked so it was constantly flooded.
You also have to pay for air on at a cost of 5euros per day for each unit, which is needed, however neither of ours worked properly!
The security guard who works at the hotel at night, is one of the most disgusting creatures I have ever met in my life. On the first night, we went to the main reception at around 7.30 am to see if we could get air on on in the room, and we were basically told we wernt staying there and to f**k off, later in the week on the way back from a night out we met a group of young girls, one of whom was crying due to the disgusting behaviour of the security guard, who had told her he was going to shut her up by forcing his c**k in her mouth, and then spraying an aerosol can and lighting it near her face, one of the lads in there group had taken a girl back to his room when the security guard discovered this he walked straight into the room and kicked the girl out after shouting at her and calling her a slag, and then started to try and strangle the lad. We also spoke to 3 lads who had been locked out of the hotel by the security guard and had to sleep on the beach. Worrying when this a hotel aimed at 18-30s.
The room was always filthy as although someone came to 'clean' everyday, it was never done properly, the sheets wernt changed once in the week we were there and the towels were changed once, and the flooded bathroom floor was never mopped. Despite not doing any cleaning she had time to unlock all the windows and doors leaving the open meaning that one of the girls iPhones was stollen, on telling the hotels manager this he was very unhelpful and starting joking about it.
The room was crawling with cockroaches and spiders, when we first discovered this one night we went down to reception to find the security guard who laughed at us and then told us to call the police before telling us to f**k off, so spent the night trying to kill bugs! We went down to the reception the next day who sprayed our room and told us the maids are supposed to but usually forget. Whilst cooking one evening a large cockroach tried to crawl into the food whilst cooking, meaning we ended up eating out every night.
We also booked onto the 18-30s package for £230 euros as well as the £223 we paid to come, which I didn't mind doing as we've gone to Ibiza before and had a great time with this package. However this was a massive rip off, the free bars they took us to consisted of extremely watered down sex on the beach, the clubs they took us to (always at about 12) were free every night before half 1, and drinks were always 5 euros minimum, however when we visited the bars without the 18-30s group they were always around 2/3 euros, the boat party we went on was too full meaning we had to sit on the lower part of the deck, so couldn't hear any music and couldn't join in any of the games, so what I paid £230 euros for I don't know! Lastly at the start of the week the rep was lovely, very chatty and helpful, however after trying to sell us a trip to the big reunion which we declined, we got completely ignored, we were never told what time the events were and wernt told what time to meet to get the bus back to the airport.
If all this wasn't bad enough, kos was dead, we went to thomas cook asking for advice on where to go, explaining that we went to Ibiza last year and wanted something similar, on getting here we were told its a fishing village and that we have come out of season for any night life, we went at the end of June.... So when's in season? All the bars on the strip have to turn the music off at 12! So you can imagine how lively it is!
So basically if you want to stay in a hotel, with cockroaches, abusive staff an theft, this is your place!!!!
