“excellent hotel”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

we stayed at this hotel for a week in october.the evening meal was very good with a large selection for all tastes.the breakfast was the same every day but you still had plenty of choice between hot and cold food.we were half board and you could go for your evening meal any time between 1.30pm and 9pm which meant you didn't have to queue as people went at different times of the day.it is in a great location with bars and restaurants only a few yards from the front door.my only problem was that the air conditioning couldn't keep the room cool enough at night.all in all it is a great hotel and one that i will be visiting again

Just got back from a week at the Papi. First time back to this great hotel since its refurb. The pool area is fantastic with decking, steps and slope to the pool - ideal for toddlers and small kiddies The non-slippy surface is great cos you can't stop kids from running and this must have saved many accidents. There is plenty of room round the pool, although the sunbeds are all taken very early (towels on beds but not always people!) There are lots of daytime activities for all ages, and nightly entertainment. The bathrooms are very modern and stylish. Rooms are cleaned daily and the staff are all very friendly. The food is plentiful and well cooked whether you use the central buffet or the grill. The only drawbacks to the restaurant are that you are not allowed to buy your drinks directly from the desk, but have to wait for someone to bring the drinks trolley round. This sometimes means that you have almost finished your meal before you can get a drink. The other point is that although the tables are laid with cutlery at the start of mealtimes, if the table has been used, there is not cutlery available - you can only get dessert spoons from the buffet table, so if you need a knife, fork or teaspoon, you have to go in search of these. It would be better if all cutlery was available on the central buffet so that guests could help themselves. Good drinking places include the Eureka, Robin Hood and the Black Bull. Call in at the Red Lion (opposite the Eureka) and have a drink with Manolo. His prices can't be beaten.

Room Tip: Room 228 has a sea view and gets the morning sun. It has a huge balcony. We had no problem with any...

I stayed at the hotel papi for 7 days, And got to say i was very impressed :)! The staff at the hotel were always cheerful and happy. The evening entertainment was great for people with younger children. The food was a bit cold on a couple of occasions however when it was hot it tasted great. i am all ready planning my next visit, Anyone looking for a child friendly holiday this is probably the best one ive stayed at x

Staff happy to help you. An abundance of food. Rooms cleaned every day. The hotel has a lovely bar area with friendly staff. The pool area always had spaces to relax by the pool or near kiddies area. even the jacuzzi area was secluded, and situated above the waterfall this had a great effect.The evening always had great entertainment for family
My only dig was the people smoking openly around the pool In the heat. Its not nice when children are around, and they get a whaff of smoke in their face including me. I would like to suggest a designated area for non smokers. On the whole I would definitely recommend this hotel the reps really made the children welcome. They were great!!!

This was my second visit to the papi and yes i would happily stay there again. ok the food can be a bit repetetive but you certainly wont go hungry as it's good quality. Yes the rooms may not be the biggest but then again they are clean and comfy. The pool area is fab with plenty of loungers and seating on offer as well as a jacuzzi. Staff couldn't be more helpful if they tried -

Great food, great location, pleasant helpful staff. BUT I only go to hotels with wi-fi which this hotel claims to have - not true! There is only availability in a small portion of the bar and then it is not very reliable. It is not available int he rooms at all......
Also rooms were a little faded to say the least. However, if wi-fi is not important to you, a good buy.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room but didn't get it - e-mail the hotel directly just before your stay to...

Traveled with Ferris (coach) Was greeted well on arrival, had to wait an hour to check in. Rooms was clean, and plenty of space. beds was made everyday and clean towels. Air con in the rooms could be better. Lifts could be bigger and needs air con in reception area.
Food is served at 7.45am till 10.15am then 1pm till 9pm. Same food everyday, looks dry. un-labeled food, so bad idea if any one has a nut allergy. Trip hazzard made be extension lead for night time Entertainment outside. Pool is nice but tastes very salty. No reservations for sun loungers, but this rule is ignored.
2.90 for a pint and 1.90 for a fizzy drink.

Room Tip: Dont get a room with a Road view on looking Robin Hood pub, as its very noisy at night with bin men...
