As with many reviewers it is difficult to find anything different to comment on.Many previous reviewers commented on food which we found to be varied and agree that much of the food was cool. We always found no difficulty in finding sunloungers but were a little shocked to watch people putting towels out at 06:50 in the morning and even...

I read the reviews on TripAdvisor before booking this hotel and I was satisfied with it. On my arrival at the airport it made sense to catch a bus into Playa del ingles, cost me €3, you can't go wrong. I checked into the hotel and there was a language barrier but I managed to get through it without any...

We had a very enjoyable short break in March. Our room was excellent and we had sun on the balcony when the sun deck and pool areas lost the sun in the late afternoon - we went in March. Another nice touch was that in addition to a couple of chairs on the balcony they had matching footstools so we...

Visited for an evening with friends having stayed here on previous occasions. Overall accommodation and hotel services were fine however check in at Reception was poor, unorganised and unwelcoming. Staff barely smiled. The main issue of the stay though was created by Public Relations person Cynthia [--] who approached us on 2 occassions abruptly and rudely. Occassion 1 was because...

We came after the Easter rush with Jet2holidays and stayed in the main block in room 521. We booked at the last minute and were pleased to find a great deal at the Occidental Margaritas. We were not bothered about alcoholic drinks or an all inclusive package so chose half board. I will concentrate on the things we wanted to know,...

We really enjoyed our stay here. We are a family of 4 so we were in the apartments. the main bed was so comfortable, lovely linen and pillows. It was a bit of a nuisance having the sofa bed up, made it a bit cramped, shame they don't have 2 bedroom apartments. Having said that it was perfectly adequate and...

Lovely holiday went with my boyfriend for a week and I'd say it was an 9/10 experience. Staff are very lovely and friendly and will help you with anything. The rooms are spacious and cleaned spotless daily. The bathroom is nice and modern and comes with plenty of towels and little commodities. The self service all inclusive alcohol is a...

We booked this hotel for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. We were in the hotel block in which we had a lovely clean modern room, big enough for the two of us with very comfy beds. The Wifi was spot on and never had any problems with it, it worked around the pool and also in our room on...

We stayed here for 6 days during the easter holiday. The hotel seems very nice at first impression. The room was clean and nice, unfortunately we hade some watrer leakage from the roof over our bathroom, most likely it was from the AC unit, but still not nice to have. Also the paint from the ceiling kept "snowing" down on...

Good hotel, excellent choice of food and staff friendly. Good free shuttle bus to the beach which is about half an hours walk away. We used the local buses to get around a few times to visit various places which was great and cheap..
