Book this holiday through easyjet and all went very well until we arrived at this hotel, There was 2 of us and a group of 3 ladies dropped off at the same time we were at reception first the staff took out passports to be photocopied and then the staff waffled on to each other in spanish and all of a sudden our room had "a fault" so we were to spend the night in a room over the road at "hotel la nina". we did this thinking ok fair enough if theres a problem with the room, i will review "la nina on their own page". next day we were told to wait until 11am and then see receptionist who then looked through a sheet of paper and decided to put us in room 205, i noticed the sheet of paper had 8 families including myself who were waiting for rooms at la pinta who had been told to stay 1 night in la nina. i thought this was odd but none the less we went to out new room and got sorted out . The room was clean and fairly spacious except for the bathroom which to be honest my under the stair cupboard at home is bigger than, the room has aircon which is free, saftey deposit box is 15 euros per week or 3 euros per day. room had a tv with 9 or so channels only one in english but then you dont go on holiday to watch tv so i wasnt bothered.
Maid service daily however we found she tends to turn up at the most inconvienent of times one morning she was knocking on the door at 8.30am the next day it was after 2 pm before she turned up
Dinner time, after reading reviews about food on here i wasnt expecting much choice, i found the choice wasnt too bad you had yours starters (salad mainly) the mains were a different dish each meal and your desserts. i did think however that the quality of the food as well as the preperation was pretty poor, i found a pork chop which was still part raw, having worked in catering for almost 8 years before changing career i knew what not to eat if it looked wrong to me.
Evening, there is very little entertainment provided by the hotel and we found only one member of the waiting staff to be fairly ignorant everyone else seemed friendly enough. sitting on the balcony we noticed more guests arriving for la pinta being shoved in to la nina for the nightand came to the conclusion that the hotel is being over booked on purpose and the newer guests are being stuck in la nina for the night until rooms freed up by over night departures. I am in the middle of making a complaint to easyjet about this i know its not easy jets fault but i feel that they should know what is going on. i expect to be residing in the hotel i booked not a different one oer the road.
The hotel is ok for a cheap deal but i felt sorry for those who had paid thompson and thomas cook prices to stay there
