Arrived thursday 26th for a three night birthday break with my partner. I have to agree with the majority of reviews on this hotel however I do feel some are being slightly unfair. Our room was facing the road works and yes they did commence work from approx 7.30 - approx 20.00 hrs but we were not really affcected by this unless we opened the balcony door.One evening we did notice a sewage smell but it never lasted for long. Also the on arrival the room had a very strong disinfectant smell but this lightened up over the next days I believe the cause is because they give the room a real thorough cleanse when new guests arrive.the rooms have twin beds and I found the shower was rather small but other than this rooms were fine .
The staff were very welcoming and accomodating to us throughout. The bar staff were very busy which is why they probably do not engage in much conversation - the drinks were what is to be expected when you go all inclusive you can pay extra for named brands if you wish. There is a lovely dining room and again we found the staff to be accomodating .As for the food yes they did have some unusual savory dishes such as pigs trotters pigs kidneys and pigs cheeks however theses are probably delicaies for the spanish ! They also had some british classics such as roast beef ,roast pork, roast chicken ,tuna steaks so overall there was a variety to be eaten .Baring in mind the hotel was 50 per cent ( loud ) spanish pensioners and the other 50 per cent british we felt that they were very fair with the menu. One thing I have noticed with visiting spanish islands is that they do like their pork and you can expect to see this on the menu at lunch and dinner amongst other dishes. Entertainmnet thursday was flamenco dancers whilst friday and saturday were discos - better than nothing and you have itv available in your room if you need to catch your soaps. We booked the private use of sauna and jacuzzi and I advise you to do the same also make the effort to go to montjuic to see the majic fountains (absolutely beauitiful and amazing) If you read the reviews then you will go to the Amaika with a true view of what to expect therefore no disappointments.
