Second visit, won`t be the last. Cannot rate this hotel too highly. Good variety of food, friendly staff, clean towels daily. Rooms on the small side, but plenty big enough fo two people.
This hotel was recommended to us by a friend. My wife and I stayed here with our 18 year old daughter. She had a double room and we weren't charged under occupancy for it. It's a lovely hotel; it's not too big - about 60 rooms. All the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We were offered a choice of rooms on arrival and went for 307 & 308. These overlook the street at the front (others have recommended the back) but were great. Not noisy at all and the sun was on our balcony in the morning which we liked and it was shady in the evening so nice to relax on after sunbathing. 307 is at the end with a view of the sea (about 100 metres away).
The hotel has free wi fi which is a nice touch since we had 2 smartphones. The receptionist even helped me find the correct TV channel in the lounge to watch the Moto GP race.
This is a great little bolt hole which we intend to use again.
Would highly recommend this hotel a little hidden gem. Room has a tv & built in hairdryer in bathroom. Rooms very clean, a good variety of food & friendly staff.
We returned on the 6th of June for a 7 day break, this being our third visit this year,
Nothing seems to change as the standards and service are of the same high standard.
If you want value for money go to this hotel as it will give you more than you will expect in terms of cleanliness,food and high staff performance.
Having sampled many of the area restaurants,we found that by far the best was Spanish Garden which is about 5 euros by taxi but well worth the cost.
Do try the rail link from the Airport --at 1.5 euros it beats the 18euros taxi each way.
I can't compliment the staff at the Hotel Don Paquito enough, the Hotel is both clean and friendly! The location could not have been any better, 10minutes drive from the airport and a minute from the beach. All rooms have balconies and although the bathroom was on the small side it had everything you could need. The food was exceptional, alot of Spanish business men frequent the hotel to dine which proves how good it is!
Thankyou Don Paquito, i can't wait for my next visit, I am now a "Costa convert"!!!!
The Hotel itself was fine and most of the staff pleasant and welcoming. But I'm afraid I made the mistake of going half board.. I asked via email if there would be enough for vegetarians to eat and reassured that there would be. Sadly this was not the case. Even the salad would be covered with a sprinkle of some sort of meat or fish. There are no hot veggie main dishes. When I approached the a member of staff, he gave me a funny look and said you can have the chips and some greens..and what food I did manage to get on my plate was luke warm and greasy. So nice hotel but dont go half board if you are veggie!!!!!!!!
