I have just come back from a weeks break at this hotel and to sum it up I would never go back or recommend it to other people.Myself and partner were not the only people who expressed the same opinion of this place. Room was great,can't really complain. Buffet food not up to much, had to constantly ask staff to top food up as opened up stainless steel containers to find them empty! I ask you....5 star not! Was informed by member of staff was Chefs fault....as if a paying guest cares one jot...just keep hot food hot (not cold) and also topped up. Also quality very hit and miss.I could go on but have better things to do. Gardens looked tired, empty glasses on table tops in gardens day after day. In the end we decided to spend as little time as possible at the hotel and used it as a place to sleep....one needed a good rest after walking into Albuferia old town as nearest place to escape. Don't think of courtesy bus...they weren't running. Taxis VERY hard to find as were local buses. If you are infirm or have a problem walking any real distances this place is to be well avoided if I haven't put you off already. Oh yes, before I forget, the Rep didn't seem to give a dam when we put some of our points to her so had to cut the conversation short and save my breath...Well that's me done...go elsewhere folks!
Oh p.s....forgot to say drinks very expensive and served with all the cheerfulness of a Albanian Firing Squad!
