returned yesterday 14th march.First impressions .and presentable arrived at 10pm friendly reception staff at check in,first minus point she told us that as we had arrived at that hour the resteraunt would pen at 11 for some food good news (or so we thought).with this in mind went to find our room .retuned at 11pm to find resteraunt in darkness when we questioned this was handed a lunchtime pack lunch back no problem with this could have been given to us an hour before.so first morning breakfast usual All inclusive affair no problem quick walk about the site 3 pools clean and tidy
our room was huge, bedroom and a living area kettle and cups etc supplied .large tv but unfortunatly only english channel was BBC world news.
pools .3 pools one of which was alledgedly climatized but we found them all freezing.plenty of sunbeds but may be a problem in summer.
food breakfast ok lunch and dinner we found pretty basic and not a lot of choice also seemed to be a lack of childrens menu.and why do all inclusive hotels asssume that you do not want tea/coffee at lunh or dinner and turn the machines off.
staff. found all staff pleasent and helpfull no problems
entertainment.daytime activites around the pool animation team asking for voulenteers to take part but not pushy.evening two night of singers brought in rest done by hotel team not that good also only lasted from 9.30-10.30 then nothing.cannot comment on childrens entertainment as we did not watch it.
location .located at the top of a steep hill around 10 minutes walk down to playa arena beach where there is sunbeds for 3 euros also toilet facilites.supermarket next door to hotel which can be reached from a gate by the middle pool save walking down the hill.not many shops in playa arena .
we travelled on the bus stops right outside hotel t o playa las americas very cheaply one point about the buses is that they do not give change above 10euro so dont try to pay with 20 or 50 euro notes as they will not let you on.
martini resteraunt right oppisite hotel is excellant my wifes sirloin steak was huge .
one last sour point a family we got friendly with whilst there.had a ground floor apartment and were burgled during the night whilst they were sleeping .
to sum up we had a lovely holiday with not really anything to complain about,dont think we would return but only due to location
We loved the healthy options of food, and that it was fresh. Animators were very engaged, kids loved the mini disco, they really had energy and real smiles, the weather was perfect, we wish that next time water in the pools was little warmer
This is a family orientated hotel so expect a lot of " children noise " . Saying that , as the hotel was pretty quiet due to Brexit , sandstorms and now coronavirus . We were concerned about the ongoing work being carried out on the main pool . This must be a contractual issue as it has been going on for over a year . It is basically the concrete flooring is breaking away . The hotel itself is fine apart from the rooms which are badly in need of a refurb . All the staff are courteous , polite and nice mannered . The food was a massive improvement from the last time we came . Entertainment was quite good given the amount of children around . . We did have a nice time , but not really for couples .
