I stayed here with a friend at the start of June. Hotel was excellent! Food was great. Located near the beach views amazing. Only a short to Nightlife but far enough away you have peace if you want it. Hotel entertainment good. Only thing i would say is alot of steps didn't bother us.
I visited the Auramar Beach Resort with 4 friends for the weekend at the beginning of June. The room was lovely and air conditioning worked a treat. The pool area was a beautiful setting with a sea view just over the wall. The food was basic but good enough for a couple of days. One of the younger female receptionists was very rude to us one evening when booking a taxi, all other staff were lovely. Definitely worth a short break I will most probably return to this hotel and resort.
Myself and my partner spent 10 days at the auramar and had a great relaxing holiday . Yes the hotel and rooms are tired and really do need updating and some decent decorating . But are clean and cleaned daily . The room we were allocated on arrival was awful small,dark and dismal . After instantly complaining we were told they would be able to change the room the next morning which they did put us in B block on the other side of the hotel This room was much bigger and brighter . The food can become a little repetitive but lunch in the restaurant is 100% better than the pool bar and was always much quieter . We wanted a relaxing break and apart from crappy room on arrival , we got just that
everything broken including air conditioning. Needs a complete refurbishment. Entertainment poor. Arrived too late for breakfast and left too early for breakfast. Paid for 7 days and only got 6. disgusted. This was not an Hotel but self catering apartments. Arrived at 10.30 and did not get my room until 4 pm.
- Very dated. - Staff not very helpful. - Room clean. - Good location as close to the beach and the strip. - Free bus to the old town from hotel. - We went self catered (breakfast included). We went for breakfast once and decided we would not go again. Very glad we did not go all inclusive. - Good swimming pools and sun bathing areas. - Very noisy as building work going on and starting at 7am!!
Myself, my daughter (4) and my mum came here in April for the Easter weekend. We'd read reviews from here and were really worried about what we would find. From the moment we got there we was looked after until the moment we left. Our room was comfortable and clean- fresh towels every day, beds done and bin emptied. Was very cool in the room so we didn't even need to use the air con. The food was lovely and you can see they all work really hard to provide all the food they have on offer. All the staff there were so helpful and kind. They was great with my 4 year old. The pools are fantastic. Everything is very clean. We spent most of our time in the kids pool and often got our drinks and ice cream from the staff in the pool bar. They have a bus service (free) twice a day to the old town. Which we used twice. We also went to the Zoomarine, and if you ask at reception they will make you up a picnic to take with you. Lots of people on here have complained about the steps. We didn't have any problems with the steps at all. We used the indoor pool once and that was great too. The bath/shower was always hot. The evening entertainment is great for the kids. The workers really put in a lot of effort for the children to have a great time. All staff were polite, helpful and kind. We got an absolute bargain with this hotel and will certainly be returning next year.
Please do not book this hotel in its current state. It is falling down.The place is in a complete state of disrepair. The Auramar is generally filthy throughout.. Our rooms overlooked scantily dressed builders hard at work with a cement mixer and piles of rubble clearly visible. We booked with Jet2 who should not have sold us a hotel with buidling works being carried out. It took us 5 hours worth of phone calls complaining to be moved to a different hotel. The one positive for this hotel is its lovely beach location. Build a new hotel on this site and we will return. Otherwise this is not a place we would recommend you stay at.
Beautiful holiday, fourth visit to hotel and was not disappointed. Food good, room clean and comfortable, cleaner came in every day and was a lovely happy smiling lady. Location is just perfect for a walk along beach to old town. All staff friendly. Will definitely be returning
The location of this hotel is excellent, easy access to the beach (which is good because the pool areas leave a lot to be desired). Easy access along the beach to the town, 10-15 minute stroll. This hotel really needs some TLC. I don't think it has been painted since the 1970's or been loved recently. We headed to the pool area to hang out and get some food while waiting for our room, no biggie. Surprised to find so many sun beds free we went to settle down. Unfortunately, all the free sun beds (and we tried lots) were broken and that is why they were free. Busted frames and covers split/torn. As we took more in, we found peeling paint, very tired decor etc, etc. The pool area plays quite loud music all day, I want to relax by the pool, not have a choice of music forced on me. The buffet meal had a really great choice but unfortunately almost all of it over cooked. The staff was very good and did make up for some of the negatives. We were put in a room near to the pool and due to the music and also being on the ground floor opposite the restaurants unofficial 'smoking' zone we asked to be moved. Initially told the hotel was full, I will say that the lovely lady behind reception did move us out of the way of the restaurant entrance, smoke zone and pool music. This move did make the stay bearable. We ate out most of the holiday despite paying full board and we spent our days down on the beach as the pool was definitely not for us. The beach is beautiful though, highly recommend. There is an indoor pool area with access outside and a few beds (away from the main pool areas), so when we did stay in the hotel for a few hours we spent our time here. It was quiet and the few beds were not busted up. I can’t recommend and I would not go back. Such a shame, this place could be stunning with a little TLC. The location on the edge of the coast is just lovely.
Just got back, after reading bad reviews on here wasn't expecting anything good. Was pleasantly surprised. We arrived on sun about 3pm, the reception staff were helpful, even put the wifi code on my phone for me, we was taken to our room, by a young man who took our cases. Yes a deposit for the key only 10 euros n safe was 15 euros for the weeks hire. We was in block A208, not a great view but could see the sea. rooms are a bit dated but its an old hotel, it was clean n the bed sheets fresh n the towels to. Which were changed regular, There was building work on block d opposite but they didn't start till 8am n we didn't hear them. They seem to be doing work all over the hotel but they don't get in the way of enjoying the holiday. A few days in they upgraded the tvs in our block, from little old one to a 32" flat screen... The outside areas are washed down every night, so was clean n tidy. the pool area, the bins n the area is tidy n clean. The food is good...a lot of choice, salads, different meats, fish, chips, etc. sweets not to my liking but loved the chocolate ice cream. I found a review on here that said lunch was in the main dining room, which is not on the website, not just in the pool bar. They seemed to have started doing it this year. Went to the strip, (new town) more for the youngest,10 min walk and went to the old town in the day full of shops n lovely beach by free shuttle bus there n back , then went at night n it was a different place, more lively but not over the top, by cab, about 6 euros. Overall we had a lovely time, there is a lot of steps but keeps you in trim! we would stay again.
