I stayed at the villamarina for a week with my mum & 4 year old son from 29th may till 5th june 2014. We booked through jet 2 & had transfers included we were the first to get dropped off frm the airport this only took about 15mins which was good as my son had been on the plane for 2 & half hours so was getting bored.
Arrival: We went to the reception to check in this was done very quickly we got our key card & got told were our room was by the girl on reception.
Rooms: We were staying in the block that is beside the playpark. The room was pretty basic but had everything we needed 2 double beds, wardrobe, tv, dressing table & the bathroom had a bath & shower which is good for my son as he isnt a big fan of showers. The rooms were cleaned everyday & beds made also.
Food: Im a very fussy eater & was worried about the food before i arrived as I wasnt sure what to expect. The food was delicious & there was something for me to enjoy at every meal. The breakfast was english breakfast eg sausage, bacon, eggs, hash brown, beans etc. Also there was cold meats, fruit, cereal, toast & fresh baguettes at every meal. The lunches & dinners were great also things like chips, chicken, onion rings, beef curry & rice, chicken fajitas etc. The desserts were lovely & there was a great selection of fruit at every meal. The juice is also lovely from the machine my faves were the orange & the mixed fruit. There is a snack bar aswell beside the pool its great serves burgers, hot dogs, chips, pizza etc most of the day.
Bar: The drinks were great i loved the cocktaild my fave was sex on the beach. The drinks were not watered down for anybody who says they are. My son loved the slush puppys they were €1 which i didnt mind paying. The bar also done ice cream for the kids my son loved it.
Entertainment: The entertainment team work very hard to please not only kids but adults to. They do things like quizzes, bingo, water polo etc & the kids do dancing & they put on shows for them eg disney princess which was on when I was staying. I think the way they show a dvd outside at night is good for the kids too while the adults play bingo. My son did not go to kids club he spent his time in the wee playpark we couldnt get him out of it he loved it. Simon the entertainer from RJP is brilliant with the kids he really goes for it on the dances all the entertainers are great at what they do but he is just brilliant.
Staff: The staff are all lovely and friendly. Girls at the reception were very helpful at giving directions etc to us. I have to say Andreu & Victor from the bar have to be my faves they are very friendly and have a laugh with you. We met Andreu on our first day he talked to us straight away & when we seen him out of the hotel when he wasnt working he spoke to us then aswell. Victor is gorgeous he is definatly the eye candy of the hotel he is lovely aswell talks away when he is serving behind the bar or collecting the glasses.
Distance: The hotel is close to things you will need its about 5min walk from the spar. About 20min walk to the beach were there is a mcdonalds & burgerking. Also the hotel have a shuttle bus that takes you down to the beach & back free of charge.
Overall in my opinion this hotel deserves to be a 5* instead of 3* as it is a great place with all the essentials you need for a relaxing holiday. I will definatly be coming back next year again & would recommend the place to anyone. Thank you villamarina for a brilliant holiday! :) xxx
