Hi,

Did you end up upgrading? I'm having the same thoughts, I'm heading out in June :)

Hey chelle_blk16,

Trying to decide myself if the deluxe is worth upgrading to. Did you end up booking?

Thanks

Hey Darren O,

I've booked the standard room for now, from looking at other threads it seems you get offered an upgrade when you arrive. So hopefully it will work out cheaper than paying for it now. (fingers crossed)

Arrived back from Hesperia yesterday and really liked the hotel though I had reservations, like you Chelle blk16 and Darren O, before I went. We were standard and I'm still not sure how the system works whether if you upgrade to de-luxe room (to get a sea view) do you have to upgrade to de-luxe dining etc and we weren't asked on arrival.

Our room, probably one of the worst, overlooked the car park on 1st floor, comfortable beds, very clean, towels changed daily if required but would certainly request a high floor (only 3) as the view would be better. The food was very good, lots of choice, steaks, fish etc cooked fresh as you liked it. We went in the de-luxe dining room for breakfast on first morning (by mistake) wasn't overly impressed - champagne, lots of cakes, waiter service for tea/coffee - only thing better than standard were the big tea cups.

Overall I think if it is your main holiday and like to sit on balcony a lot I would certainly upgrade to sea view room. The de-luxe section for sunbathing was a joke, like being herded into a pen. The pool at back of hotel was very quiet, rarely more 6/8 people although it did get busier last few days, but always plenty of beds at every pool.

Overall we would definitely go again as hotel in very central position but would upgrade to sea view room without the de-luxe dining - hope this is helpful.

Hi Morwin,

My thoughts were what you described, you are likely to get a room at the back and from my friends who stayed there a few years ago, their rooms could have done with a refurbishment then. I would think you are unlikely to get a sea view room unless you pay deluxe, as I guess those rooms have been refurbished first but I maybe wrong

We were deluxe bed and breakfast in April/May this year. Personally I don't think its worth it. The sea view was blocked by trees, the outside seating area was like a sheep pen and they were all on top of each other. We choose to sit outside of the "deluxe area" because the space was so restricted! The reception desk was no quicker than going to the main reception (which we did several times).

The pool at the side of the hotel was never used. There is a childrens play area there too. All the children were in the main adult pool!

Lol this is the sheep pen area that lego describes, I think you need to specify a sea view room to be certain as some rooms are on the ground and some with trees in front

The deluxe 'sheep pen' is on the far right of the photo in the roped off grassed area.
