First let me agree with Jonesy 568, this is not a 4 Star hotel, he is wrong it is nearer a 5. The hotel is superb with an absolutely ideal location right on the main promenade and beach.
My wife and I stayed for nine glorious nights from 23 May to the 1st June and wished we had booked for longer. We arrived at around 4PM after an excellent flight from EMA with bmibaby, the flight was dead on time. My wife is disabled so we booked a private transfer and were met and escorted to a Mercedes limo and swiftly transported to the hotel,( the return pick up was also dead on time in a similar car).
Our check in at reception was swiftly handled by an extremely efficient and friendly staff who were right on top of their job and we were in our room by 4.15. We had booked a suite and it was everything anyone could desire. It was located on the 7th (top) floor and had magnificent views across the hotel gardens and pools and the promenade and pristine beach.
The suite was extremely spacious, spotlessly clean (kept so for our entire stay)the bathroom was huge with a corner curved bath, separate walk in shower, twin sinks, bidet and toilet bathrobes and slippers.. The bedroom had an enormous bed,( I needed a satnav at night to find my wife in it), ample wardrobe space and a flat screen TV. The lounge was large and well furnished with a comfortable settee and armchair and sundry other tables and chairs and dressing tableand a second TV. The large balcony was well furnished with Teak chairs and sun lounger with cushions supplied. All in all a magnificent suite and on a par with any hotel I have ever stayed in and I have travelled and stayed at many top hotels around the world.
The hotel everywhere was pristine clean with a high standard of maintenance.
The food in the hotel was some of the best I have ever had and was of cruise ship standard with lots of choice to satisfy any taste. All guests were met on entry to the restaraunt and escorted to a table by the friendly and welcoming staff in an area you chose and indicated yourself we were never dragooned into an area we did not want to sit. There were no bad areas anyway as the whole restaraunt was beautiful with crisp white linen and napkins on the tables. Drinks order were taken at the table and promptly served, the bottles were labelled with the room number and unconsumed wine was taken away brought to the table the next night to be finished off or not as you wished, a nice touch.
We thought the evening entertainment was excellent with live performances each night, the magic show was one of the best i have ever seen and all the dancers, flamenco and modern and the singers top class There was also a pianist who played most nights outside Frankies bar in the reception, very relaxing.
We were welcomed in our room with a bottle of champagne and a basket of fruit and the mini bar was stocked with soft drinks and bottled water. Another plus was the range of channels on the TV we had BBC1 and 2, ITV 1and 2 and Sky as well as loads of other language channels.
The moaners on some of the reviews must have stayed at some out of this world places if they can find fault with the Pez Espada. It is a wonderful hotel and a credit to the management and a highly motivated staff at all levels. We shall certainly be staying again, hopefully in September, it is the first time my wife has ever expressed the desire to return to a hotel so quickly.
Thank you all at the Pez Espada for a memorable holiday.
