Before I start, I did read the reviews and I did have in mind when booking this hotel for my wife, 2 children and myself that La Vitas was aimed at the German audience but I would never of dreamed that only us and 1 other couple were the only english in the whole hotel.
Rooms: The rooms were very average. There was a fridge that you could put your water in but for it to be cold enough to cool you down, it would of had to of been in there at least 5-6 hours. In a family room for 4, there is 1 double bed and 2 single beds. You will need to have air-con on all night on low otherwise you get too cold in the early hours of the morning or you get too hot without it on at all. Air-con is free off charge.
The Staff: The staff were very friendly although the english language barrier is very small. 1 specific waiter wouldn't leave my daughter alone and we ended up jokingly calling him 'the stalker'. Although my daughter was 14 at the time, she didn't like the male attention from this 30-35 looking, B.O smelling waitor.
Food: There wasn't much range when it comes to the food. Also if you have young children or children who are fussy eaters DO NOT go to La Vitas. Every night was the same-old-same-old and for the 2 weeks we stayed, they only served chips once and they were cold!
Pool: If you were not down to the pool by 7.30-8.00am(latest), NO WAY was you going to get a sunbed untill late afternoon(5-6pm). For a hotel who caters for over 200 people, there was not even 50 sunbeds.
La Vitas Beach: The beach is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. Not very long when you think about it, but in the heat it feels like a never ending journey! On most of the reviews I read before I booked this hotel, they said all food & drinks from the La Vitas beach was free of charge. Well its not. None of the food is free and only water out of a tap is free of charge. If you have any beers or soft drinks(cola, fanta, etc...) these and the food get added onto a bill that you pay at the end of your stay.
When you check out and get given your bill to pay, check it VERY VERY carefully, and try to keep track on what you are spending, as they tried to put the money for the safe($40) on twice. Not only ours, but our friends Simon and Steph aswell. Also, a few extra drinks were added on too.
WOULDN'T RECOMEND TO FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN AS NO ENTERTAINMENT AND THEY WOULD BE BORED.
Apart from that, our holiday was fabulous and the weather was amazing!
