I booked this hotel because of the reviews on trip advisor, ok the staff were pleasant, nothing less than I expected, the room was clean again nothing less than I expected, the view from the hotel room was unpleasant as we were looking on ramshackle buildings and washing also a derelict property. the food was the problem, never in all the years of holidaying in Spain was I offered Pigs Cheeks, very boney rabbit stew I think it was, all you could see were bones, every meat offering was the very cheapest cuts with a lot of bones, there was salad from morning till night but it was sat out all day just being topped up, after evening meal it was collected and was out again next day.A few dishes if not eaten were back on the menu the next day cold. There was chips on for breakfast dinner and tea, is that all they think English eat?
I don't want to sound as if I'm very picky but never has this sort of food been offered, some days we could not eat anything other than chips and salad, I did complain to reception but as the manager was not in the hotel very much it was futile. I must say other nationalities seemed ok with it but they were all on Half board, all the English I spoke to were in the same mind as me but we were on all inclusive. We did have to eat out quite a lot.
I will just mention when we booked in we were given details as to the All inclusive it said that snacks of burgers, hot dogs etc would be available in between meals, this was not so as the snacks were the left overs of the previous meal, just left out. I don't blame staff, I blame the management, the kitchen is obviously on a budget and doing their best, but I can honestly say foodwise this is the WORST hotel I have ever been in.
If you are English don't book this hotel.
