Went with Saga to this hotel for 7 nights.Saga were good and took good care of it`s clients.There was an included cocktail party and gala dinner,which was acceptable and a good way to meet fellow guests.There was 2 included trips and both were well planned and enjoyable.
ROOMS-very dark and drab,everthing green.Big bathroom and cleanest bath I have ever seen.There was extra charge for everthing.Safety deposit box,and a small fridge,which was a godsend for a cool drink on balcony.Don`t expect privacy on balconies,because of hotel layout,the guests opposite were so close you could have a conversation with them.Remember to close curtains when undressing/dressing!!.Tv could have gone on antiques roadshow.
FOOD-very very salty.Meats cheap cuts.Had crab and crab claws one night but nothing to open shell with.breakfast the worse I`ve had in a hotel for a long while.Waiter service good and drink topup good.
ENTERTAINMENT-non existant.They showed a film on a sunday night,and apparently who got to reception desk first could pick film shown.They did have flamenco dancing one night at 11.30pm.Itwas Spanish dancing that was main event.Non residents came to hotel to dance,and was is cut throat.Men in black patent leather shoes putting chalk on soles for better glide.They were so competitive it was scary.
DRINKS-being with saga we were all inclusive.We had to stand at a certain area of bar for service,and there was NO waiter service for saga guests.Other reviews stated barstaff were rude ,we certainly didn`t experience that.
Overall hotel was clean and wellpositioned.
Would we return no.Poor food options,limited day and night entertainment.Very dirty looking roof top pool area,and air condition in bedroom next to useless,I`ll spend my money elsewhere.
