My wife and I spent a 10 day break at Las Palmeras from October 4 to October 14. Check in took 10 minutes then up to room on 8th floor. On our arrival we noticed the Terraza Bar was closed which was a disapointment as we were looking forward to a nice ice cold glass of San Miguel before checking in, as is our tradition over the years of staying at the Hotel.That was no problem as we just took cases up to our room and went out to the Hollywood Bar on Paseo Maritimo.
Dinner was good with a good selection from meats including fish and salad bar.
Breakfast, good selection of Scrambled eggs, Fried eggs, Bacon ( streaky ), Pork sausage, smoked sausage and a good selection of salad for continental breakfast.
Only bar on J floor open at 6pm for Happy Hour till 7pm then normal bar service. This bar was closed on the Sunday and Le Tren bar ( Left off reception ) was open for the rest of our break.
This was no problem as we pick this time of year due to the Feria so we go out to the Hollywood Bar and meet our Spanish friends and party with them.
The room was cleaned daily to a good standard, Towels changed daily in bathroom so no problem there. Pool was cleaned every day and no seagulls were seen on the pool due to 4 wooden Owls placed at the edge of the pool every night when the pool was closed ( cheap but effective ).
WE have noticed that a lot of comments state " Staff miserable " . Not with the guests while we were there but there is a general state off unhappiness with the staff due to them just being paid the last part of their salery after 3 months or more and thats after 25 staff being made redundant and 25 more to be made redundant in the next few months due to a takeover by the company who run Centre Parcs. The staff do not know who is going to lose their job at this moment in time so isit any wonder the people get this impression of miserable staff. Further information is that Las Palmeras may well be turned into an Apart Hotel with 2 rooms being knocked into 1 room thereby reducing the number of rooms.This information is from a very very good source.
Apart from that we had a very good vacation. Thank you to the staff at Las Palmeras
