If you are looking for a holiday in a relaxing environment with the best of hygiene standards then the Pineda Park is the place for you. We were a family of 5 ( 2 adults , 2 kids and a teenager ) and we had a very spacious 2 bedroom apartment. It was certainly the biggest self catering apartment I have ever come across and must have been at least 80 square meters. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed for a self catering holiday seen as we ate breakfast and a hot cooked lunch there every day. It felt like a home away from home providing all the kitchen equipment and utensils that we needed. I was happily shocked by how clean both the apartment and the resort were. I have stayed in 4 star hotels that were not as clean. Certainly and by far the cleanest resort I have ever stayed in. Clean bath towels were supplied every other day and the apartment cleaned every 4 days. Bar area, pool and reception always meticulously clean and not to mention the toilets at the bar and the pool....spotless at anytime of the day. You would not see so much as a crumb on a table or a floor. My compliments to the management and to the cleaning staff for their efforts because I would always have hygiene on the top of my list of priorities.
Staff were always very friendly and helpful and when I had an issue with a broken lock on a bedroom window it was repaired immediately. We had a late flight on our return home and the resort allowed us to leave our suitcases, use all the resort facilities for the day and then provided us with clean, fresh towels to shower in a special allocated changing rooms that again were perfectly clean and spotless. This service is definitely appreciated when check out is at 10am but the flight home at 10pm.
The aim of our holiday was to relax but entertain the kids at the same time and I feel that we achieved both to a certain extent. If you are looking for a resort that offers a lot of activities and entertainment then I would not recommend the Pineda Park. The pool area, despite being quiet and relaxing could have done with a bit of background music just to give the place a bit more atmosphere. I am not saying loud disco music but just something to emphasise the holiday mood. The kids loved the pool but I felt that at times it was a bit too small. Unfortunately many people didn't respect the house rules of no ball playing and no inflatables in the pool meaning that the pool quickly got overcrowded. My 5 year old who is learning to swim got hit on the head a few times with a ball and there was never any lifeguard on duty to blow a whistle and remind people of the rules written in English all around the pool. A bigger pool is certainly needed if the resort wants to allow inflatables and the likes.
We ventured out every evening for dinner so never stayed in the resort for the evening entertainment but from what I saw of it, it was very poor. Bingo, table quizzes etc...and all indoors while sitting in the air conditioned bar. The resort does not have any outdoor entertainment facility which is a shame because being in Spain means I would prefer to be outside as opposed to sitting inside like I do in Ireland all year round. Should the resort have had an outdoor facility with better entertainment then I might have stayed and eaten in the resort some evenings.
I would recommend this resort to families with small children and families who want to relax. Anyone with teenagers or looking for a more active holiday should maybe try elsewhere.
The resort is very well located, a 5 minute walk to a beautiful sandy beach, lots of supermarkets, gift shops, restaurants all within easy walking distances. La Pineda itself is a quiet town with a lovely atmosphere that I personally loved but is definitely geared more for families with young children.
