The juniper hotel has a brilliant location, right next to everything you need, shops, beach, bars and pleasure nightclub right opposite, and it is also very clean. But these are the only good things about it. I travelled with my partner, and paid £430 each ALL Inc for 1 week, thinking we would atleast be able to stay around the pool and relax all day with our drinks and meals in, and occasionally going out to eat on a night(been on loads of holidays before and we know you get what you pay for but this was a joke)....This was impossable as there was never any beds as there was not enough to cater for the amount of people at the hotel, 47 rooms and 30 beds. A sign in the reception saying if you put a towel down and left it for more than half an hour it would be removed for someone else to use which is fair....This didnt happen, people were putting towels down during the night!....untill we found ourselves having to set our alarm for 5.30am to put 2 towels down.....to later have them removed by another family!...I was so annoyed that i didnt just do this myself instead of sticking the rules!...It caused friction by the pool with people, and you just dont need that agro and stress on your holiday. Needless to say the point was, that we paid all inclusive, but could never make use of it as we ended up having to go to the beach everyday, pay for drinks and eat out nearly every day. The food at the hotel was served at the sister hotel The Siesta across the road, but you could use there bar aswell. The juniper should not be all inclusive, as it doesnt cater for this. Every day the food was boiled lamb or pork in a watered down stew, chips and rice. Salad, and bland soup. Drinks were watered down at the juniper and served warm as they didnt have a fridge to keep the mixers cold. Drinks at the siesta were a bit better. Rooms had free air con because it was high season, but if you wanted the fridge to keep your suncreams/water etc cold you had to pay about £21 a week for this...remembering as soon as you leave the room and take the key out the electricity goes off, so your room is hot again when you get in on a night and the fridge hasnt been on so your water has gone warm again aswell!....The air con also leaked water onto the plugs so we had to cover the plugs with a towel untill it stopped.
If you go to this hotel, dont go all inclusive, and be prepared to have a fight on for a sunbed every morning.
