We came home from the Destina last week and for the first time ever we are so glad to be home.
Some parts of the holiday were good but there are a few things which really spoiled our holiday.
The rooms, bathrooms and balconies are very small, but adequate and clean.
The food was very limited, with only 2 meat options at dinner time. I have never seen so many meatballs in my life. The puddings were nice but quite often they were finished by the time you went for one and new ones weren't put out. The food was nice though, just not much choice.
The entertainment was dire!! We always enjoy the daytime activities when we are on holiday. French bowls, rifle shooting, archery etc, but there were none of those. The evening entertainment wasn't very good either, a game of bingo that went on for hours, a karaoke night with hardly anyone singing and on a Sunday night they played a film. On the last Sunday we were there, 2 people watched the film!! Now that definitely wasn't successful entertainment. There were 2 "entertainers" in the hotel who could be quite ignorant and rude, speaking to some people and not others. Sometimes one of them would dig people in the ribs during their meals!! They seemed to be more interested in selling CDs, DVDs and perfume than actually entertaining people.
Apart from those 2, the staff were friendly and attentive.
The noise in the hotel is horrendous. Inconsiderate guests banging doors and shouting in the corridors. Not great for a good nights sleep.
Sadly what is basically a nice little hotel is badly let down, but by a few very important things.
We would return to the area but not the Destina.
