Visited Hotel Levante from 22 July to 5 August 2014. I really enjoyed my time at Cala Bona and Hotel Levante. The hotel staff are extremely polite and helpful. At dinner times after a few days they knew what drink I wanted and it was on my table once I got there!
The Thomson staff and Holiday reps were also very nice indeed. They do a good job.
The room - it was for one person so take that into perspective when reading - was very nice and spacy. The bed was comfortable and balcony very nice. The maids were very good. The bathroom is a big size bathroom however the bathtub is quite small and very difficult to move yourself in that in using the shower head.
It is 2 euros per day for the safe and well worth it. It is an electronic safe using your key card rather than the old fashioned safe with a metal key. The fridge was a very good size. I could fit two 2 litre bottles of water and a 1 litre bottle of fanta lemon in that fridge which gives you an idea of the size.
The size of the television is good however the reception is really bad thus the pictures - especially for the british channels have lots of pixels and hard to watch. The Spanish channels are much more clear though. But surely a 4 star hotel should be able to get clearer pictures in this day and age?
The hotel reception staff are very welcoming and always answers your questions if you have any.
Now the sun bed issue - I stayed 2 weeks. The only day I had the opportunity to get a sun bed after 10am was when it was overcast one day! I usually woke up around 9am and by then all sun beds were gone. So do not stay at this hotel if you want to use the sunbeds at the pool side. Also because they have 3 hotels - Levante, Levante Park and Gran Sol you have 3 lots of guests using 2 pools and sunbeds. So as I am not sad enough to get up at 5am for a sun bed I alternated between using the beach and the 3rd floor roof tops sun beds which were much attainable at around mid morning to midday.
The man made beach wasn't great either. Although the sun beds were much more attainable and suitable times of the day - i.e. after breakfast around 10am to midday there was sunbeds available. 4.20 euros each for the sun bed and usage of the umbrella. Not bad and well worth and for me.
The food at Hotel Levante was not great either. Not bad but certainly not great. The size of the meats that are show cooked each night is quite tiny and you only have a maximum of two.
The buffet didn't have the greatest range of foods. Food was rather bland and not much taste - aptly suited to 70 plus age people. I prefer a bit more spice in my food.
However I must say on the other hand their desserts were magnificent. Lots of cake, flan, fruit and ice cream. Lots of choice and all good.
Breakfast was your usual and cooked for the masses so after a few days I didn't bother. I just went to the supermarket across the road and bought a packets of croissants for only 1 euro!
The day time activities were good but could get quite mundane and in that sense I often felt sorry for the reps who had to do this each day.
The transfer to and from the airport to the hotel was very well done and on time too. Only took just over an hour.
The snack bar is good and lots of choice pizza, baguettes etc.
I never stayed in for the entertainment at night so I cannot comment on that. The price of drinks is very reasonable also.
However I would not stay at Levante again for these key reasons:-
1 - Sunbed at the poolside issue. If they can't be bothered to sort it out why should I pay them again to stay.
2. The beach. It isn't a sandy beach and lots of grit plus the sea has lots of rocks. So I prefer a sandy beach.
3. The range of food and the actual food (except the desserts) are not 4 star quality. TBH I found the kebab shop nearby to have better quality meat!
4. Bathtub is tiny in a rather big bathroom!
But I can't fault the staff and the location is excellent and views are excellent as well.
So for me Hotel Levante is nice but not great.
