Tea and Coffee making facilities - don´t expect them

Once again people are asking about Tea + Coffee making facilities in Spanish hotel rooms and there are reviews on TA moaning that rooms did not have these.

Please note that it is NOT the norm for these to be provided so, if you need an early morning Cuppa, take a travel kettle with you or buy a cheap one on arrival. Mugs can be purchase for a few cents in resorts and most supermarkets stock UK brands of Tea and Coffee if you don´t want to carry them with you.

But that's not the case everywhere.

Yet another reason to seek private accommodation - most provide coffee, kettle, and a selection of teas - if not a complete kitchen. Many have very comfortable beds, private pools, provide beach equipment and other amenities you'll never find in a block-hotel.

We've been booking apartments and B&B's wherever we go all over the world - and our experiences so far have been superior to the resorts (often hugely superior), and often for less money.

Thanks for that reminder Campolady.

I do think it is unfair when people complain on a review about facilities not being available, such as kettles, aircon etc, when they are not actually advertised as being available.

Entirely agree that B+B / SC accommodation generally offers far superior facilities but my post was aimed at resort hotel guests so they would be aware they are unlikely to find a kettle etc.
