On arrival we were pleasantly surprised that they offered food and drink in the restaurant even though we arrived at around 3 in the morning.
Quite a lot of steps. Positioned on a hill.
We stayed in room 217:
Electrics did not work. Only 2 light switches seemed to work. Dodgy electric points. No outside light.
Shabby room, smelt damp. Later realised that the bathroom ceiling leaked everytime upstairs had a shower. Thought our air con was broken but was shown you have to close patio door for it to work. When it did work not very powerful at all even on the highest setting. There was a ceiling fan in the bedroom which made it more bearable. Squashed mosquitos on the walls. Broken handle to bedroom window.
Room positioned on the bottom front row so annoyingly everytime someone walked past the room they would look in. So no privacy. We seemed to be on the main rat run everyone took to go and come back from the restaurant.
Maid service was poor. Didn't seem to get to our room until around 4 pm. Bed sheets were never changed. Fresh towels were forgotten on one day so had to ask reception for them. Only reason they were took away was because we placed them in the bath. Didn't regularly replace them. Stained curtains to the patio window. Bed settee had cushions missing. Broken and dirty grout in floor tiles.
We complained several times about the room. The switches got fixed and the window lock but the leaking bathroom ceiling did not.
When you sat on the toilet you got dripped on!!
Both pools were noisy and crowded during the day. Sun beds old and uncomfortable. General pool areas seemed dirty and shabby. Cigarette butts, litter.
Didn't seem to be enough staff to keep up with clearing up after guests. Though only rarely saw staff actually clean up.
Typically not a lot of staff so three staff they do have do work hard.
Probably don't get paid a lot to do their job either.
The hotel does have a fantastic position. You can go down to the sea front which is rocks not beach but there is quieter sun beds down there. You can swim in the sea off the rocks.
When dining in the restaurant this has an amazing view of the sunset at night if your lucky to get one. Tacky white plastic chairs and tables outside though.
Restaurant was unbearable with the other guests not being patient, children left to their own devices and they all semmed to act like they had never eaten before even though there was plenty to go around. Jumping ques and general rudeness.
Good position like I said but the hotel overall was shabby and dirty.
Food was standard. Breakfast possibly the best out of all. Choices at lunch and dinner as a non red meat eater was not good, I pretty much ended up eating pasta, rice and chips every day.
Pool bar served drinks and food in the day. Constants ques again, only one man serving. Everyone seemed to gorge on the burgers and toaties served.
Location of the hotel is quite remote. Portinax village was a fair walk away but luckily we had hired a car and could get out and about.
Other residents of the hotel did do the walk.
We went out every evening to different places instead of staying in the hotel. Did not like the thought of staying in the hotel every evening. Most of the guests seemed to gorge on the free alcohol which you had to que at the bar for every time. So quite a lot of loudness and drunkenness.There was entertainment. They had Spanish dancers one night but didn't stay round for long to find out any other nights.
Mix of French, Spanish, German and English guests.
Last day we wanted to extend the room as we did not fly until 2am the next day. This was not an option. There was also no room to freshen up in later. Only positive thing was we could still use the facilities and eat and drink until we left.
Would not choose to go to this hotel again. If it was modernised, refitted and smartened up then maybe yes but would not give this hotel a 3 star at all.
