Ok, now I should justify the title of my review.
Being a luxury lifestyle blogger, my expectations are always high. First of all, when I chose to stay in a five star hotel, I expect that someone will greet/welcome me and of course will help me out with all the suitcases ( I travel heavy).The scenario at Los Monteros was a little bit different....no welcome, no greeting, no help. Only a receptionist (who by the way, do not speak English) struggling to find my reservation. First impression - bleah.
Secondly, Los Monteros pitch itself as a resort and SPA...I would recommend to all people avoid the "SPA" there otherwise they will leave more stressed rather than relaxed. And here is my story: second day, appointment at their SPA for a manicure ...again, the staff from the SPA barely can say hi...and then the crazy thing started. I expect from a five star SPA employee to know ,at least, the basic stuff about a manicure...but not here. The lady who was supposed to do my nails was completely useless. Not even the smallest clue about cutting nails. This is bad... very bad. I should take a picture of my nails to see how that lady did her job. Big unlike.At least she was smiling all the time.
What I did like at Los Monteros was their beach club, La Cabane, which really looks like a luxury private club where you can enjoy your champagne whilst sunbathing.
Another BIG LIKE is the champagne breakfast they serve every morning...a wide range of food, delicious natural juices, good service and ...yeah, nice champagne. Well done for this.
I really hope that my review gives a real insight about a real experience at Los Monteros.
