Having read reviews prior to departure I was a little worried as to what I had let myself into. However despite arriving at 1 in the morning, the staff were able to allocate us our rooms quickly and we immediately purchased a safety deposite box (15 euro for the week). The rooms are basic, but all have a balcony, en-suite and air-con which is hugely effective so the facilities are more than adequate. However I was joined on this trip by 5 other males all aged 18 so the purpose of the trip was to sample the nightlife, so whilst returning to the hotel at 5/6 in the morning, to be woken by the useless cleaners at 9/10 everyday does not go down well even when you put the do not disturb sign on the door, and the reason as to why i found them useless is well, they made the beds and that was it, didnt sweep the floor which looked like a beach by the end of the week and the sheets and towels were not changed at all throughout our 7 night duration which in warmer climes is disgusting. The food in the hotel was mixed, with the diet consisting mainly of lettuce, melon, chips and ice-cream and a rock hard roll each night. Unfortunately i was never up early enough to taste breakfast! However this did not matter as there are loads of cafes where you can get a huge fry-up for about 5 euro (Rambo's is really good, the owner is a great chap) so plenty on options for the hang-over cure. The location of the hotel is ideal, which it being about a 5 minute walk down to the beach and then just a couple of minutes on to the strip.
This hotel is not the Ritz and if you go there expecting it to be so then you are obviously going to be disappointed, I mean for 240 euro for 7 nights on half board this hotel is severe value for money, providing what you need for a realistic price and providing nothing more. Don Juan is a hotel that caters for all, from youngsters on clubbing holidays, to families and we even met a group of 13 church-going women from Michigan, USA, so its target market is certainly diverse, and in my honest opinion it caters to everybodys needs to a satisfactory standard.
