We stayed at the hotel for a week on an all-inclusive basis from 28th May-4th June. We booked this after seeing the shots of the area and the hotel and seeing the wonderful sunsets This is a 3 star hotel and in my opinion you get more then you pay for. It was fine for a 3 star hotel and I would go back.
The views are the main feature of this hotel as these were stunning. The hotel comprises of three pools with a snack bar on th bottom pool which served a variety of drinks (including San Miguel), Cheese burgers, hotdogs, Cheese and ham toasties and fries. The pool bar does get very busy at times and with only one guy serving, queues can appear but he did a great job of controlling the flow of people.
The food is in the dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There was not always the best choice but you could always get something to eat and they were regularly filling it up. The only downside was the deserts which were always flavoured moose and fresh fruit. Not really a problem but gets a bit repetitive at times.
Not the fault of the hotel but our flight was delayed from birmingham from 22.45pm to 3am so we did not arrive at the hotel til around 8am. The reception staff promptly checked us in and gave us the key (they keep your passports for a day when you arrive)
Like the other reviewers have said, I wouldn't recommend this hotel for anyone with any mobilty problems as there a lots of steps and steep hills. Our room was 709 and it was near the top. there were 2 ways to get there, a steep hill near th entrance to the hotel or steps up from the pool area. Our room was basic but had a bed, tv and bathroom (hairdryers, irons and kettles can be hired as not included)
Like some of the other reviewers have said. the only downside were the kamakazi birds flying into and pecking at the window in the morning. There is a peacock on site too and this also goes onto the balconies and pecks at the window. I actually thought this was some sort of irony as i had been playing angry birds and the every day you would get a dozen or so bangs on the glass and could see the outline of the bird flying off.
There was entertainment on every night, usually a kids disco around 8pm and then something after. Last night we had the eagle bird show which is good to watch, there was also a men vs women and a music quiz night. Again with the other reviewers there was sometimes a bit of a queue at the bar at night but they only had one barman serving. I did recommend that they turn one of the San Miguel beer pumps around and allow the holiday makers to serve themselves (like you can in the resturant) as the main issue was the 1 man on and most people wanted beer. The drinks were fine, beer is San Miguel and they will make cocktails if asked.
Portinatx was lovley and is about a 15 min walk/stroll away, There seems to be a bit of confusion here as the reception staff advised that you could get to portinatx ok but it was steep on the way back and to get a taxi. I went several times and it was not that steep. To get there you go out of the hotel, go past club hotel portinatx and take the next left. Go down the road and you reach the first beach. There were three nice beaches and we stayed for a day at the first 2,
All in all we had a great holiday. The staff were generally friendly and helpful if you are polite and talk (not shout) at them. Our home flight was at 3.15am and you had to checkout by 12 (asked for late checkout which is 6 but everyone i talked to was advised no). We booked the coutesy room and like others have said its a bit smelly but hey theres a shower and sink and toilette. (by the way this is located next to the Spa at the back of the pool bar).
Met some great people and had a fantastic time and would definately go back, What sometimes people dont appreciate is the staff here are worked really hard with multiple jobs throughout the day. An example of this is the staff in the morning that serve you breakfast, are also serving in the bar at night or in the pool bar, yes the rubbish does pile up a little but that cos the man is serving the queue, whilst we were there we observed the pool being cleaned daily and tested for the ph value.
The holiday can be what you make it, yes one time we ran out of paper for the toilette, but a stop at reception and an ask for more and this was done within an hour. The location was superb, 3 pools, a pool bar, spa, kids club and all inclusive as well as a rocky area which you can if you want swim in the sea (Snorkling is a must) but be careful as the rocks are slippy.
I would def go back again as was a lovely holiday and if i can help with any other queries let me know as only got back from there today 4/6/12
