My partner and I have just returned from our fourth trip to this hotel and I'd like to start by saying that you get what you pay for. We have never paid more than £310 each for a week all inclusive and you can't expect too much for that price. The hotel itself is quite dated, it could certainly do with a bit of an update but it won't wreck your holiday to see a few chips in the paintwork or a cracked tile or two everyday. This time we stayed in the main hotel building (we usually stay in the bungalows so I wasn't sure what to expect) and had a very large room with a huge balcony. There was nothing we could complain about, the room was clean and well equipped with everything would you need to make meals etc. The maids come every day except Wednesday and Sunday and will change the towels everyday if you leave them in the bath/shower. Bedsheets only get changed once a week but I personally don't have an issue with that because I wouldn't change them everyday at home anyway. The food is really hit and miss, sometimes it's really nice all week and other times (like this most recent time) it's just bad. Now don't get me wrong, you'll always find something, the breakfasts and salad bar at lunch and dinner are always great but the hot food at lunch and dinner can be really bland - there's a reason why there's salt and pepper on every table. There's snacks on in between meals, just burgers, hot dogs, chips and salad. The pool bar is open from 10.30-18.00 and the main bar is open from 18.00-00.00. The entertainment is pretty much non existent, there's bingo or a quiz a couple of nights a week but aside from that there's nothing that I would call entertaining. The staff are all lovely, always smiling and happy to help. Sebastian at the bar deserves a special mention, he's fantastic! Overall the accommodation is very basic but spotlessly clean, the food is edible most of the time and the staff are great. If you bear in mind that you get what you pay for them you won't be disappointed. For a cheap and cheerful holiday the Costa Tropical is perfect, we'll certainly be back.

The communal areas are of a much better standard than the self-catering apartments. Everywhere is very clean. Our accommodation was poorly equipped and the only obvious updating consists of painting everything white, without any prep. That’s the kitchen worktop, the bath, the tiles but not the marked and chipped yellow pine furniture. Also, there is no beach or resort and the seafront looks like a deserted bomb site. You can walk along to Caleta on a coastal path but we changed accommodation soon as we could and stayed there instead.

We arrived back on Saturday from here. We went for a bit of winter sun but didn’t get it. The hotel is dated and could do with a spruce up. The food is the worst thing at this hotel. Breakfast was ok but the rest not good. Drinks and the bar area where good. We had the pleasure of attending previous posters surprise party and was a fantastic night. If you don’t like the food it’s cheap enough to eat out. All in all would return. Big shout out to Christoper and Sebastian who never stop working.

Firstly let’s get it clear - The hotel is a 3 star so if you want 5 star food, 5 star accommodation and everything else that is associated then pay more money. We were a party of 14 celebrating 2 big birthdays , the reason we booked was simple , we wanted a budget all inclusive for alcohol, which could accommodate friends arriving and leaving at different times over a 7 day period, this fitted perfect. The hotel is slightly tired but the staff keep it clean and presentable, they were especially accommodating when helping to set up the surprise party night for the boyz, previous emails always answered and all questions and challenges were covered. The food .... yes you knew what you were getting and some times it looked a little ...... well..... bland, but it is a 3 star, generally the food was acceptable and done the job. Entertainment , apart from our group, was non existent, the lady just walked around looking sorry for herself and occasionally would make a form of connection with you be it wind or a nod. If the hotel had good entertainment the place would be livelier. A quick couple of quotes from other guests ..... “It’s like gods waiting room in there” Picture the scene - Meal times (quote) “ it’s like a scene from the walking dead, they all come from rooms, stumbling and groaning, hilarious “ In summary - the hotel is ok, the staff brilliant with the one exception, the food ok, clean , all the booze you want but our weather was awful Enjoy

Just got back from this hotel and stayed only for the week thankfully. It is true what people say about the food, it really is disgusting. We ate out more than we did stay in the hotel. The food was cold, very hard to put a meal together. Breakfast was the better meal out of the others. A lot of fish meals. Some dishes for example stated vegetable rice but actually contained meat. Rooms, we stayed in the apartment number b10. Not very clean and the balcony was so dirty. Shower was cold, had complained about this but still not sorted. Single beds were in the rooms, when I asked where this was advertised I did not get a response. The door also was jammed which someone did come out to fix after I got locked in. Bar area is really small, the entertainment is very poor. Nothing goes on in the day time. Staff seemed friendly apart from the entertainer who seemed to only care about her own music playing which did not suit the needs for others. There is not much to do around this hotel, either bus or taxi to the nearest town. Which eventually costs a bit of money if you are doing that daily. The only thing that was above average was the pool area, very big and clean which is surprising compared to the rest of the hotel.

First of all.... im just back from here and food was revolting. Sometimes lunch was edible but dinner was worse. Tasteless, bland not appealing. The entertainment is non existent and the girl who tries to entertai guests does a poor job at it and barely speaks english. The rooms are spacious with nice balcony. My shower didnt work 3 times so it had to be fixed. Reception staff are ok. A big shout out to Sebastion at the bar who was very friendly and done a good job at the bar. Drinks are plentiful and taste ok. This hotel need to address the food situ.... most people go om holiday for the food but there was some nights i did not anything as the food looked disgusting. Fellow guest i spoke with thought the same. Wont come back here.

We stayed from 18th January to 30th January 2018. Stayed in I think one of the refurbished rooms, speaking to others we had a good room but we also paid more so i guess you really do get what you pay for. Room As stated we were in a simple furnished one bed apartment. The front room had a sofa, tv, fridge and coffee making facilities. The bedroom had twin beds pre-pushed together. The best thing about the room was though the balcony, had a great view of the pool and surrounding area and largely got the sun. The room was clean and the cleaning staff were very conscientious. We got the impression that a refurbishment program was in process while trying to keep the hotel open. I suspect it will be quite different in 12 months. Food The food was heavily criticised by those who were there before us. one of the complaints was that it was cold and guests were using the microwave to warm up the food. You could see the hotel was concerned because a guy in a suit (presume the Manager) was regularly in attendance checking temperatures and I think over the 10 days it did improve. We found the food ok, there was something to eat all the time but difficult to get excited. Staff The staff I found in the main (more later under entertainment) very helpful. They did their jobs and they did them well. always with a cheerful 'hola'. The army of cleaners round the pool area was always an enjoyable site as they prepared the area for the new day, viewed from the balcony. Atmosphere The atmosphere of the hotel at first we thought was very flat (perhaps not surprising with the complaints about food, rooms and entertainment) but did improve. At the beginning the age profile was older and as the time went on younger guests came in who I think raised the atmosphere. We met some great people right through our stay and I thank them for increasing the enjoyment of our holiday. Entertainment/Activities I really hate to criticise but I am going to make an exception for this. This is in part why we only gave 3 stars rather than 4. The entertainment/activities were abysmal. One of the things i like about a holiday is to play pentanque, killer pool etc and then a good laugh at night. The first full day pentanque was advertised at 4pm. I found the area where I think it was played which is a sand pit and there was no one there. I asked at reception and they said the lady who organises the entertainment goes around asking people. I certainly did not hear or see her, and to be honest I saw little of her advertising anything apart from a half hearted invitation for Tennis. The evening was even worse, there was a game of bingo which you really struggled to hear her and there was a quiz, after which she took the papers in, marked them and announced the winner, not even giving the answers. I found bizarre and amusing but not really in the spirt of other quizzes I have seen. One night when everybody was in, quite happily talking some watching a match on the TV. She came in switched off the TV, put the music at full blast and started opening windows although it was very cold outside. After being challenged she advised us to 'put our coats on'. In the end the mass actions of the attendees kept the windows and doors shut. It took the intervention of the receptionist to put the music down and change to something that we could all enjoy. In fact the best night was when a couple sang on her night off. There was absolutley no customer service focus from her which was in contrast to other members of staff. We thought she was totally unsuited to the role. Our last night was better, I think some of the lessons had been learnt. If the management is reading this please give this the same attention as was given to the food. Overall We liked the hotel and the area and would return. Please though sort the entertainment out.

Stayed here with hubby from 13th until the 23rd of January 2018. Staff was great especially Sebastian and Isabel nothing was too much bother. We stayed in what they called a bungalow very clean, spacious and the hotel cat adopted us. Breakfast was nearly always the same so you knew what you were getting. Lunch and dinner always a good variety never went hungry, food standard excellent would go back in a heartbeat. 3 star hotel but excellent. Some people expected 5 star service but be realistic you get more than what you pay for. If looking for quiet getaway this hotel is the place. If you have a problem the manager is always there and will try to fix it.

The hotel was ok ,reasonably priced so it was quite as expected it was basic and so was the entertainment, the food was ok but always cold , on the plus side the staff were helpful lovely friendly and worked very hard, from reception staff , the bar staff , waiting staff and entertainment staff a lot of them working long hours , the beds and towels were very clean , we had a good holiday but the hotel is getting ready for a refurbish .

I went for Christmas break and loved every minute The staff were all great and very friendly, couldn't do enough to help. The all inclusive was form 10am till midnight which was great, Isabele and Sebastian were both great at their jobs and as helpful as they could be. Isabelle even me in over Christmas on her days off as a staff member was ill, so she covered the shifts for them. The food was very good, we got a chocie of two paella each day as well as the standard fair. Yes its not English food, but you are not in Blackpool, Try the food instead of just moaning, you will probably find you like it !!!!! I loved every meal, there was always something to eat, and I did try everything! Drinks were local drinks, but a damned good pint of beer and they are not shy with the spirits as well. I had a bungalow to myself and they are a bit tired, but that didnt spoil anything for me. I would recommend to anyone to give it a try and find out for yourselves. Remember it is a 3 start so don't expect 5 star quality, especially at the price, its a great place for the money and I heartily recommend it
