We stayed at Hotel Patos in the week leading up to the Easter weekend, the main selling point for me was the pools and they certainly lived up to expectations. We were lucky and had excellent weather all week so we could take full advantage of the pools,though I would guess in busy holiday times the sun lounger situation could be a prob though.
The other information that I read on here was that a lot of people put how clean the hotel was and this was very true,the room although very basic and a bit old fashioned were very clean with towels changed daily and beds changed during our stay.
We had a prob with out door lock one night so we were unable to get into our room,the lady on reception was brilliant and got the maintenance man onto it straight away. She was lovely and also the gentleman that initially checked us in on the Friday night but apart from that I found the rest of the staff very quiet,not particularly rude but not very friendly.
The food,well it was interesting! we went half board but only ate in the restaurant at night a couple of times as the food was just cold, Im all for trying new foods but it would be nice to have then served hot, there was also an open cooking area which fish was cooked on,well I say cooked-frazzled would be a better description,such a shame to spoil such beautiful fish. Breakfast was better,still not hot but the amount of choice was great so you can easily avoid anything hot,the pastries were fantastic.
The entertainment wasn't great and more tailored to the Spanish guest.
One the more positive side once it hit midnight the hotel was very quiet, so you got a great nights sleep,plus the beds were very comfy. The hotel was just a few mins walk to the beach down a slight incline, lots of nice resturants in the area also
the marina is about half an hour walk away,well worth a visit as its beautiful. You can also do boat trips out to see to spot Dolphins from 10 euros
the cable car is also worth a trip, we got a taxi up there as so hot- didnt fancy a hike on a hot day, it was only 6.00 euros for the journey, the cable car its self was great-very steep, cost about 25.00 euros for 2 adults.
We also went to Gibrolta for the day, really worth doing,though just pay for the shopping trip,15.00 euros each as you get more time to do what ever you like there ie cable car, caves, monkeys etc, we did the rock tour trip which wasn't worth the extra 20.00 euros each
All in all we had a brilliant holiday, we would definatley go back to the hotel but on either self catering or just bed & breakfast
