“Hotel Jeremy Kyle.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Very disappointed with our stay here. Food was awful - snack bar food was unedible. If you like pork vindaloo & turkey stroganoff on holiday then this place is for you! All inclusive was abused by some guests and their behaviour around children wasn't acceptable. Management are full of empty promises. The beds were ok if you like two singles next to each other with seperate bedding. Main bars and beach are realistically a long walk! Although we did it everyday to get some decent food! Won't be returning.

Than you for sharing your experience of the Villamarina on trip advisor, positive and negative feedback is always appreciated.
Please accept my sincere apologies you was disappointed with your stay.
I would like to take this opportunity in responding to your review.
The hotel food in general scores very positive feedback, with lots more on the menu than what you have stated, we always have a pasta dish, fish dish, a white meat and a red meat dish along with vegetables, salad etc. every evening there is either a joint of meat or something been cooked on the show cooking at the bottom. Other plates to mention are
Fajitas ,Roast chicken, Chicken Pie, steak Pie , Mussels , liver and onions, paella, pizza,
Yes the menu is very British as the hotel is 100% to the UK and Irish market, and apologies if you were not expecting this. If you would like to email me what you would have like to have seen on the menu, then of course we will take this in to consideration.
The hotel advertises twin rooms, a double bed can be requested but not guaranteed, apologies if you did not feel it necessary to come to us and ask if a room with a double was available as I am sure we could have moved you if there was.
I would like to know what it is have promised so this can be looked in to, as I am very true to word, if I can do it I will, however not everything is possible, you have to remember we are a 3* all inclusive value for money family owned hotel and not a big international chain, and I believe they rooms and hotel are 3* but the service / entertainment and food are more on the lines of a 3*++ hotel - apologies if you do not feel this was the case.
We do offer a free shuttle service to the centre of town from 10-11.30 and again 16.00-17.30 apologies if you was not aware of this.
I can only apologies that you did not want to come see me or Monica our guest relations to discuss you dissatisfaction.
Kind regard
Lindsey

Just come back from a week stay at the villa marina a family of 5. We stayed in the apartments just 2 minutes walk from the hotel, would definitely recommend staying in the apartments as rooms in the hotel are a little small. The food is great there's always something for everyone. The entertainment team work so hard you canr fault them. The only thing I would say is avoid the frozen entertainment night its more a kids show it was abit pants for adults. Simon Danielle and Sam are hilarious. Thanks guys for a brilliant holiday would definitely be back if we visit salou x

I went on Holliday with my girlfriend and booked it as a late deal just to get some sunshine and relax so diddnt really expect too much!

BOY WAS I WRONG!

The staff were super friendly and more than welcoming!

The guest relations manager Monica was so lovely and definitely let you know of her presence in an extremely good way! She was always walking round letting you know she is there if you have any issues so she could address them and was always asking for feedback on how the hotel could improve! To say it was her 2nd year at the hotel, it felt like she had been there years and knew exactly how to run it effectively! She is an overall lovely lady and she lives kids.

The entertainment staff for kids are amazing! They entertain the kids with the standard party dances, karaoke games around the pool! However, they also do entertainment for the adults too! They do games on stage, play bingo and do afternoon and evening quiz's which are so fun! I give my heart out to them as they work from 10 in the morning until around 1-2 in the morning if they have a show at chaplains and they do this day in day out! They are all dedicated to the hotel and are brilliant!

The food! The food was AMAZEBALLS! They had an amazing variety and it's all very English! The breakfast was like a standard English with sausages and eggs bacon and HASHB ROWNS!!!
They also had wide variety for lunch and tea with lasagne, pizza, salads, stews! Lovely hearty meals that are so tasty!

The hotel its self is spotless! Obv you may get a room that might look a bit tired due to them constantly being used which is to be expected! But at the end of they! It's just a bed for the night! The rooms are modern and clean with a small balcony or a terrace if on ground floor! The bat was half a bath so not good for bath lovers but personally I prefer a shower so wasn't a problem for me!

The hotel is just a small walk for 2 local shops and a cash machine (about 5 mins) and a 20 min walk from the beach! He hotel also offers a free shuttle bus service too and from the beach everyday! FREE!

If you going as a couple with no kids I would deffo recommend the solarium on the roof of the main reception building! It's adults only, nice and relaxed! Plenty of sun loungers and 2 hot tubs with it's own toilet facility and a bar Aswell! Brilliant for getting a lovely tan!

The alcohol was perfect! Not watered down and they don't do half measures either. You could deffinatly taste it in your drinks! They also have drinks we get in uk which are not in the all inclusive section but you can but them for a reasonable price!

Overall I wasn't expecting this to be an amazing holiday! I'm a serial holiday maker who has been abroad 6 times in the past 12 months with my girlfriend and this holiday has beaten Tunisia, Portugal, Amsterdam And other parts of Spain! Diddnt quite match Florida, but does anything?

This really was the best holiday and I want to thank all the staff, maintenance! Cleaners! Everybody involved for making it amazing! THANKYOU

I would deffo recommend and will be going back

For all you people saying it's for benefit Brits! It's really not! There may be a few people that don't work but! They're all lovely and we met a lovely family there who we hanged around with all week in the evenings and had a right ball!

Thank you again

hi been to this hotel a few years ago and returned the end of may for 1 week with my friend for her 50th we had a fantastic time our room was to the front of the hotel looking on to the swimming pool, meals where better than last time that we where there food for the British pallet things like steak pie, beef curry, sweet and sour pork and even spare ribs , and puddings like rice pudding , bread and butter pudding with custard breakfast was sausage bacon eggs hash browns or you could have cold buffet always fruit at every meal from melon to pineapple apples oranges so you will not go hungry and don't forget the snack bar we never used it as we ate in hotel . when we arrived it was nice that the bar staff remember us I don't think I made that good an impression the last time I was there . I hope you enjoy your holiday as much as we did and the roof terrace is fantastic nice and hot in the sun and no kids . the only problem we had was a family booking in late one night shouting outside in the hall way they had booked several room and don't know what the problems were but shouting at each other and swearing other that great holiday and we will be going back in the future .
