Firstly let me give you the negative points, the pool area is small with a bar providing snacks from a not so clean area with staff that could not handle the pressure. The room we stayed in as a couple was small and in need of re-furbishment, however it was functional with a comfortable bed and wardrobe but the bedroom was very small about 9ft 10 Ft with a toilet / shower area 4ft by about 6ft, swinging a cat rings a bell. It was last year in September we went and after a few days, along with another couple we complained to the staff about the conditions especially the spa where the resident masseuse pushed people into trying it out, I refused to pay until I had sampled the service and thankfully we did not stay in what turned out to be a dirty seedy badly run sauna etc, not for the feint hearted may I saywith many guests complaining to the spa staff who were themselves convinced that they offered value for money. We suggested to the Manager they should be removed and the place including the pool area up graded.
The Manager however did come to speak to us and for about two hours listened to our concern, eloquently put before him be the other couple. The result a promise to upgrade the spa and the bar area including cleanliness. he offered us upgraded room which we refused saying that this was not the reason we told him our concerns it was so the hotel could improve the facilities all round. My credit to the manager and reception staff who were very helpful and concerned.
Would I go back, well not to Gumbet or the 4 star beach down the hill which wouldonly get 4 stars for the rubbish in the water swept in from the sea, I for one would not swim in this again and it was rated a 5 star beach, obviously by people with white sticks.
Gumbet would suit the Benidorm type customer but for the more discerning customer avoid like the plague. I am sure the hotel management would have made the improvements suggested but the staff overall were fantastic, friendly, helpful and willing to help. My scores,
Pool Area 3 Star, Pool bar 2 Star, Local Beach 1 Star, Room at Hotel 2 Star, Food $ Star, Service in Restaurant 4 Star, Overall Service 4 Star, Management 5 Star, Reception 5 Star, Spa NO STAR ( may have been upgraded since September 2012 ). Would we go back,Not to the area but would try the hotel again for a week to check on the upgrades promised.
Finally, give it a try they should be given a chance to improve overall, Overall Current Rating 3 Star. Not for those who have difficulty walking, hotel on a hill but the views are fantastic.
