Trying to book a holiday at the Margarita. Its now changed over from First choice to Thomas Cook. Problem is the vast amount of night flights. They offered us a 0620 return. In reality it would have meant vacating the room at midday the day before!!!!! So thats 16 hours waiting for the coach transfer. They could offer us a late check out room but only till 6pm. So in effect we would be loosing almost a day of our 7 day holiday. On our 2 previous visits to this hotel, we havent encountered anything like this. BEWARE and check your check out times.

Reviewed 12 January 2013 via mobile

We stayed here August 2010 for a week. As a young couple we wanted a hotel away from laganas strip but with easy access when we did fancy a night out. Margarita seemed like the perfect compromise however when we arrived our allocated room in the main block of the hotel was horrible. You could barely swing a cat in it, the bed was on its last legs, the toilet seat was broken, there were hairs in the sink, the cup in the bathroom was full of scum and looked as though it hasn't been washed out in months! Not only this but the sink was coming away from the wall and the putty stuff they had used to try and re-attach it was just crumbling away! I work in the travel industry and was not prepared to spend my holiday in this hole so went straight down to reception to be moved to one of the renovated rooms. After 2 days we were moved and the difference in standards is incredible! The new room was huge, spotlessly clean and so much more modern! If we had been given this room all along we would have been more than happy but I would never stay here again as the old rooms are so bad! It's not worth risking being allocated one of them!
The other big problem with this hotel is table sharing in the restaurant! If you're in a group/family of 6 you're fine as you will have your own table but otherwise you have to share with other couples- it is so awkward and you basically find yourself eating as quickly as possible and not relaxing and enjoying yourself! You go on holiday to relax and spend time with your other half not make awkward small talk with strangers over every meal! I must say the food was lovely though but I think it's unacceptable to expect people to share tables.
Overall the hotel does have its plus points but the negatives for me outweighed them and I would not stay there again because of it. If all the rooms were renovated and they sorted out the dining situation I would probably give it another go.

this is the 2nd time i'd stayed at this hotel, and it was just as good as last time. The new entertainers, (Ellie and Claire) were great, they knew everyone's name quickly and always provided us with excellent entertainment. The food was very good and the puddings were amazing. The bar service was great and drinks were better than the ones you get in England.
I would still recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: go for the family block, alot cleaner, quieter and bigger rooms.

A lovely hotel- great atmosphere and friendly helpful and hard working staff.

The room was basic but clean and cleaned daily and balconies quite private.

The food was very tasty and often went back for seconds. Drinks good and drinks and nice snacks served between 10am-midnight and you can ask for water after that/throughout the night.

Pools clean, one quiet - adults only and the other one more for the kids and activities.

Staff were strict on groups making a lot of noise and this was dealt with quickly.

Most bars and restaurants were closed as it was the end of season, but you could find somewhere.

We had a fantastic time and met some wonderful people. Thank you Margarita for an enjoyable stay and we would like to come back.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the garden are quieter

just back yesterday , this hotel is exactly what you see in the brochure , had an amazing time, super bedroom (had 226) bed was perfect, spotless, fridge kettle hairdryer supplied, brill shower always hot water, food superb loads of choice, the adult pool was bliss as we did not go with kids so this pool is a perfect escape from any noise, margarita and her staff ( Debbie the English bar lady is just lovely) so friendly and helpful, the restaurant is really nice, the hotel is set a nice bit back from any "action" of laganas so a good setting. i would recommend this all inclusive hotel to couples or family's ,

Room Tip: try to get room 223/224.225.226.227. all super
