Lovely hotel, clean and in a good position. The rooms were ok, reception/bar area is refurbished and nice I would also say the dining room was refurbished lately.
The food was decent enough but the selection was lacking at times, salad and desert bars were fresh and well stocked.
The pool is nice with a partitioned off area for kids and there is a separate shallow pool that can be covered if needed.
All inclusive - here we go.
We arrived and the receptionist was lovely, then she worked out we were all inclusive and we were pointed to our room bluntly which didn't fill me with confidence.
I went to the bar and ordered 2 cocktails, A/I band on show, then I was asked for money, I explained I was A/I and then the barman shoved the A/I bar menu under my nose and snottily said A/I customers are served at the other bar and the cocktails I had ordered were not on the A/I menu.
The next day I went to the pool bar for soft drinks and was again pointed towards the bar at the top of the stairs as that is where A/I guests are served. They have 3 windows to serve you from and the staff can move between windows but A/I customers are sent to the end window and were refused service at the other windows which were empty. Basically if you have money and are willing to tip they will bend over backwards, if you have an A/I band, join the queue and get spoken to like a second class citizen. A/I finishes at 11pm so if you want a drink after get your money out, the only upside of this was the service was brilliant and you had proper glasses like the big boys do!!!!
I found the bar to be well staffed but you would have 4 staff fighting over the paying customers and one barman fire fighting the people on the A/I bar and trust me this place wasn't full of drunks, these people mostly wanted soft drinks and coffee.
Basically this hotel has started doing A/I this year because the market wanted it but they don't want that type of business. I would advise them to go to a RIU hotel to see how A/I is done properly or go back to what they used to do which I would imagine they did very well.
As for Fennals which is where this hotel is, It's ok, it has everything that you would need. The promenade area is nice and has restaurants/bars dotted across it. Expect to part with between 3 and 7 euro for a large beer so don't go on a tight budget a meal is north of 14 euro up to 50!!!!
The area seems to have been hit hard by the recession with has a lot of half built hotels and closed shops.
The quote that summed up Spain for me was said by a Nigerian holidaymaker, "when did spain become a third world country?" Harsh but too close to the truth for my liking.
This is a country/area which has been hit hard by the recession and it shows in the area/people. I've never left a bad review on here as I think too many people expect Britain in the sun when they go on holiday and just moan because it isn't. I'm well travelled and open minded about country's, this country and it's people really need to look hard at themselves as the average holidaymaker will not put up with their inflated prices and poor attitude.
I hope the manager comes back to me as I have tried to be constructive.
