Five of us were going on this trip, and we booked two rooms (one with a camp bed). When we arrived, we were informed we weren't going to have two rooms - we were instead going to have a three bedroomed villa style house. We were all very excited at this prospect, this meant we could all be together all the time and we even had our own kitchen, dining room, terrace and private entry to the pool. The only downside was that instead of the two bathrooms we had thought we would be getting, we instead had only one. Between five girls. Luckily there was a shower and a hose outside which, as we are so young, we made use of. Now, the shower. On the first night we had one semi-warm shower - and after that we endured ten days of freezing cold showers. We resorted to all showering outside in our bikinis, with the hose pointed in the air so we could run underneath the water only when neccesary (for washing the suds out of our hair, etc.) The rooms themselves were bizarre - two twin rooms and one double room. The first twin room had only a hat stand as a wardrobe but did indeed have air con, the second twin room had a wardrobe but no air con - and the double room had both air con and a wardrobe but had views of the hotel storage area (ladders, umbrellas and the like) The decor was very very outdated but the room was always kept immaculately. The maid simply cannot be faulted. Other things however, which I understand are not the maids fault made our stay harder. The cutlery provided for us was dirty, as were many of the glasses. We only had one sponge and that was also rancid, and we found potatoes underneath the cupboard that had been there for God knows how long. We stayed there half board and would definately never do it again. This hotel is perfect for GERMAN'S. None of the food available was English other than the chips. On some nights the food wasn't labelled and this caused havoc as we literally had no idea what we were eating. On one very unfortunate night we had what we thought were doughballs with chocolate sauce and it turned out to be fish. The timing of breakfast and dinner are brilliant, though. 7am-9am for breakfast (which itself was poor) and 7pm-9pm for dinner. Another thing I noticed as well is that people really liked to dress up for dinner at the hotel restaraunt, and you were very much looked down on by everyone there if you entered in anything other than a evening gown. The hotel staff are all very friendly and accomodating (perhaps a little too so!) but refuse to talk to you in any other language than German. The location of the hotel is ideal, next to nightclubs, near the harbour, on the strip and near the beach. The swimming pool is very small but is fine. (few too many dead cockroaches left lying around for our liking!). The only other small issue was the feel of the house we were staying in. It wasn't always a friendly vibe we picked up, but that was no doubt the fault of one too many horror films and our teenage over active imaginations. After reading a few other reviews of the hotel I understand that the actual hotel rooms had timed air conditioning. Luckily, the house we stayed in had unlimited air conditioning which we controlled. Overall, I would return to Ses Puntetes, but almost certainly not half board.
