“I wouldn't stay again”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The hotel is great for location as it's a 2 minuet away from the beach strip and shops, however when you first get there you are greeted by a rude receptionist and €100 deposit per room.
Rooms are small and dated with no fridge and you had to pay for the use of the safe.
You can't call it shagaluf staying in this hotel as no one is allowed back to the bedrooms unless you are a guest.
Reps are pushy and you feel treated like a child and they are constantly threatening you about loosing your deposit
You are not allowed to stay for late check out even if you Are willing to pay, this is inconvenient for light times

Room was extremely small considering 4 of us had to share. Room only had 1 plug which was appalling and caused stress when trying yo charge phones ect. Guy at reception extremely rude. Pool are lovely and the hotel's location is brilliant! Would stay here again as it was value for money.

When booking in you are asked for a €60 deposit for a room you have already paid for in full, you also get a form asking you to list damage to your room, Its not so they can fix it its just so they dont bill you for it on the way out. I said my shower door was hanging off when reporting the state of my room and the guy on reception replied ''Thanks'', he had no interest in fixing it. My friends toilet was hanging off in his room and i found a review on here reporting the same problem with the same room all the way back in September 2013!!!

You wander why it was so expensive, the money does not go on maintance or upkeep. The walls are artexed and horrible it looks like it last seen a lick of paint 25-30 years ago,

"Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss" music plays from dusk till dawn, the beds are tiny and if someone shuts there room door too hard 8 rooms away your balcony window shakes like there is an earthquake going on! so dont expect a good sleep!!

The room was realtivly clean and we got new towels every 2-3 days.

The breakfast was ok at best the selection was reasonable but it was obviously dirt cheap food, the bacon was more fat than meat for example.

I could go on all day about the issues and my disappointments but i am sure you get the idea.

The only upside was the location was excellent.

This hotel is awful!! The room is horrible! There was some sort of body fluids are the telephone and chewing gum stuck everywhere! We had a nice little ants nest in the bathroom , we payed for a 4 bedroom room and only got 3? They didn't even try and bother to sort it out! It was just horrible and I will never ever stay here again!

I stayed in this hotel with my boyfriend in June and it's not nearly as bad as some of the reviews make out. There is music played around the pool during the day however it's not that loud and the reps do give you the chance to suggest music you would like to be played, if you aren't fond of this then there are two gorgeous beaches near by that are each about a 5 minute walk away. Although the hotel bar is open at night it doesn't really play loud music and it shuts at about 11:30 so it's not late at all. We found the breakfast to be lovely with a relatively wide range of options and the majority of the staff were friendly and incredibly helpful. However the only disappointing thing was that we had to pay a €100 deposit for the room that we were not told about before hand. This is the only thing I could complain about as the rooms were lovely and clean and the air conditioning may not have been powerful but if you leave it on at all times it keeps the room cool.

Me and a friend stayed here when it was Don Paco back in 2007. We had FAB time, apart from coming down with a bug from the food off the plane stuck in bed for 24 hrs. Place is PERFECT for party goer's and me and the hubby with a few friends will be going to see what the LIVELY has to offer and to see if it is any better.

Not for the faint hearted as your holiday WILL CONSIST of JUST alcohol and parties HELL YEAH!!!
