I know, I know.... what the heck am I doing at a hotel in the town where I live!
Well, my wife is 40 tomorrow and for my 40th I had a week at the Sandos Papagayo in Lanzarote, so I asked my wife where we should go for her birthday. I offered her Venice or Ibiza but she wanted a nice all inclusive where she could just lie in the sun. She choose the Sandos in Benidorm.
Anyway, the private transfer was excellent and only took 12 minutes (I drove us from our house.......), check in was swift and we were soon in our room.
The hotel is very stylish and the room is huge. There are 2 double beds and a big bathroom. The hotel is actually surprisingly small. The pool isn't massive and the sun area gets cramped but because it is adults only there is a calm & relaxed atmosphere.
The quality of the drinks is very good, Cruzcampo on tap (which I don't normally like) and even the wine is decent. They do a really nice champagne sangria in the afternoon.
The spa is fabulous and they have special offers on massage and spa circuits. For example because we are Sandos4u members my wife had a 25 min massage and we both had 2 hours in the spa for €40.
Staff are great too!
