Well where do I start on this hotel from hell, 3 of us stayed here for 5 days over xmas & we have never been in worse in our lives, 4 star??? not even close to a 1 star Blackpool B&B...When we got there around lunch time we were told that we could have lunch in the restaurant from a menu, I have never been served worse anywhere in my life & Iv eaten In a lot of places, my wife ordered fish & chips which came with 2 pieces of processed fish in batter that you would find in the value section of your local super market, I had pork (well that's what I think it was) yet again never had worse, our friend had a tuna salad which was terrible also, & all food was cold, & this was prob the best meal we had ... that can tell you what the rest were like, All meals had just 1 meat option & 1 fish option, both terrible & cold, I couldn't eat at all in the hotel, so opted for local restaurants once a day to get me over the 5 days..The hotel only opened on the day we got there, after a refurb, what a joke, the bar & games room (pool table room) were full of ripped tatty seats, outside area had a seated area with wicker seats & tables, poolside had dirty old plastic tables & chairs only fit for the skip.. Our room was ok but only 2 star ok not the 4 that the hotel is meant to be, would have been ok for a real cheap SC holiday nothing else..The staff in the hotel were all in all friendly apart from 1 male receptionist (dark haired thin guy) very ill mannered & no people skills at all, barman Pedro was great, as was the other girl on reception, I think in total this hotel is run by 6 staff & that includes the cleaners...While we were there, another couple who were there for 2 weeks left to go home after 3 days to seek legal advice over being sold their holiday, another group of 6 or 7 people paid £100 each to get moved to another hotel. Really this hotel attracted mostly the type of people who wanted to spend their whole day in the bar, some complaining that they couldnt get served spirits at 11am, bar states no spirits till 2pm, also people drinking beer with their breakfast, I couldn't believe that that's how most of them wanted to spend their holiday...
If you are thinking of booking this hotel, & you aren't the type that wants to spend all day & night drinking & not eating this is the hotel for you, but if like us you're not, please please book anywhere else, Id rather stay in a tent on the beach than stay in this abysmal excuse for a hotel (more like a hostel for the homeless)
If you think I'm just a moaner, please check my other reviews as I try to give nothing but fair & truthful reviews..
