Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahía Real G.L
(MY OPINION) .
rooms were lovely and had fantastic sea view ,we were initial booked into a side sea view but paid extra €20 per night to upgrade to sea view room 233 as our first Room was right at the end of the side sea view block .the room had really large bed and lovely pillows that we ordered of the pillow menu . Well stocked mini bar with everything in .white fluffy dressing gown with slippers.toiletries included shampoo ,conditioner ,bath foam ,body lotion,sewing kit,shoe horn and shoe shine ,comb,toothbrush and tooth paste and shower cap.i requested a iron and ironing board and was allowed it for the week no charge .we were close to the lobby so we were able to get free wi fi on iPad .
Loads of storage space .we slept every night with the doors open as we felt very safe on this resort.
the pool is enclosed in centre of the resort so you couldnt see sea or anything but which was very nice with nice loungers and pads ,with a smaller heated pool and a larger unseated pool which was still ok not freezing.i do agree with a previous traveller that the waitresses don't come round enough do offer refreshments .one thing my partners and I noticed was that no one was ever on hand to help with parasol s and beds ,the towel man didn't come out to help with anything .they life guard was nodding off behind his sun glasses lol ,luckily nobody was drowning .Good selection of mags and books round pool.the pool bar made amazing sangria with strawberries and banana's in.we were partial to a few jugs .
the buffet restaurant was really good and did differant theme nights ,the fish night was amazing ,huge prawns etc.Breakfast was fab ,with fresh orange juice which is rare in any hotel these days and smoothies.we went on a half lard basis ,which was enough considering we normally go on a all inclusive basis .one thing we did notice though was water wasn't complmentry not even a bottle on arrival .
(MY PARTNER OPINION)
This was a very ordinary hotel could possibly be judged as 5star , just , however with a bit of effort could be so much more. The biggest problem. . . . . The Management ! !
The majority of the summaries on trip advisor are very accurate and if you read them you will get a good understanding of the hotel and it's surroundings, as we did.
Why I say the biggest problem is the management is because they read all our comments , take the best out of them as you will see with their replies and totally dis regard the negative lol lol , we had a really good laugh about it, you will to if you read them.
This hotel could genuinely be up there with the best of them, good location, nice and quiet away from the main town but close enough to walk to if you wanted. (about 20 mins along nice beach path).
Great food no need to eat anywhere else but in the buffet restaurant as they have a really good well prepared selection. Only downside is the tables with the best views of the sea are not in use. Great Management decision there boys and girls ! Nice little outside area though which is pretty and quite romantic.
The pool area is good, no sea view but you will understand why when you go as the wind drags the sand almost everywhere. I would go as far as to say this has been very well thought out and should not be seen as a negative. It is clearly an either or situation you either want to relax in relative comfort or you want sand up every crevice , or orraaphis imagine able lol.
As I said read other peoples reviews they are accurate. Where this hotel let's itself down is in the things that could so easily be corrected if the management took on board the comments. . . It would not be a bad idea if they started with the simple things like water. Charging for water around the pool area is not good if you are genuinely a 5star hotel. Charging for tea and coffee in a room is not good if you are a genuine 5 star hotel. Hope your getting the picture this hotel likes to charge for everything. The other thing you will find is the towel attendant does like to disappear . . " back in 5 mins " ... His sign says. Half hour later. . Just help yourself.
Other things that could do with tweaking , breakfast time doesn't start until 8 so anybody wanting to start early forget it . We hired a car and couldn't go anywhere until 9 o'clock big no no .
These really are small things which if the management heeded could truly go along way to making this a hotel to remember rather than one of the also ran type. We have travelled all over the world for short break holidays , long haul one week and two week but I would say we have seen better in all categories
so at present would not return.
MANAGEMENT YOU ARE LETTING DOWN YOUR STAFF AND THE HOTEL. TAKE ON BOARD THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEM RATHER THAN GLOATING WITH YOUR HEADS UP YOUR . . . . . .
