paid top price after being 'ripped off' teletext holidays. (another story!) not worth it! stayed one night and moved elsewhere. food not good. cold and no choices. room had a single pan for boiling water, and a manky microwave amongst other things. Did not expect 5 star i assure you!. but paid more than enough to get better than we got.
First time at this hotel - the apartment was great and the balcony was excellent as I had asked for a sunny balcony and it really was! I went all inclusive and the food was very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made it what I hoped for a very relaxing holiday.
The area was lovely and highly recommended. The accommodation was basic , a bit dog eared but clean. I would go back but never all inclusive the food was adequate and very ‘samey’ and the drinks were ridiculous, in a child’s plastic white cup which if you was in a group you couldn’t carry. There was a queue every morning waiting to grab and reserve the sun beds for the day ( which didn’t bother us as we couldn’t wait to go out of the complex) overall I would go back to the area maybe as b&b because we ate and drank out every day rather than the hotel complex
The whole complex was kept very clean and tidy, if a bit dated. Staff were friendly and approachable. Outdoor swimming pool - although not heated, was great for a good swim. Plenty of car parking available on the road. There was always a reasonable choice of food at meal times. Free wi-fi in areas close to reception - we paid for WiFi to ensure we received it in the apartment - good signal. BBC World News channel free but did need to pay if wanted other English TV channels (and other languages), (we didn't). For all-inclusive guests, free bus to the main beach, otherwise 1 euro! We had researched thoroughly before booking and got what we expected. If you check what's included - or not, you won't be disappointed. Our balcony was enclosed which was fine for us. Balconies on the 1st and 2nd floors were open - it did rain whilst we were there. No lift access to these floors so if you have mobility needs, ask for ground floor. Lift access from ground floor in main area down to restaurant.
The apartments and the whole complex was spotless, couldn’t fault it...However, the let down is a result of food, entertainment, pool, hire charges and facilities for s/c guests.. I was AI and there wasn’t anything you couldn’t have however as it was a buffet, the food always needed warming up...the microwave for guests use was filthy most of the time...not sure what the solution to the cold food is but a microwave isn’t hygienic!!!! The daytime entertainment was non existent, the evening entertainment was abysmal...bingo every night, no early children’s entertainment and no atmosphere!!! Hire charges were applicable for everything, kettle, toaster, hairdryer, iron...surely not necessary as no one could steal those items...? I went AI as I was traveling alone and didn’t want to go out alone in the evenings...Trying to make a silk purse out of a sows ear is applicable on this occasion...
Booked as an antidote to post Christmas blues. Read the reviews and it seemed ok. Five minutes after booking, it seemed to be bad review after bad review. Therefore with some trepidation we arrived at the reception, courtesy of Norwegian Airlines and Resort Hoppa who both did a first class job, on time and helpful. From first contact until our departure all the staff we dealt with were helpful, polite and professional. Originally our party had booked two rooms but we were offered a two bedroom suite which was actually better for our needs. Overall the hotel was as we expected and reasonable good for three stars. However it is so obvious everything is run on a very tight budget. The rooms were clean and large but as mentioned many times, the mattresses had seen better days as had the sofa bed. The built in roll together mode made for some interesting arguments as to who was on the wrong side. Only one cockroach seen, it was on the balcony and dead, so no problems there. The food was reasonable, never going to win Masterchef, but for the money, what do you expect. Yes some things were colder than is expected and the budgetary constraints show up in the cuts of meat used, but you had a choice and the station chef did a very good job. Which brings me on to a much mentioned point. Why can’t the eggs be cooked to order on the griddle in the morning, it would save waste and please customers. Let’s face it, trays of dried up eggs at breakfast are not the most appetising sight. For those who like runny eggs, it was very much hit and miss, and trays seemed to go back to the kitchen hardly touched because the eggs had congealed in situ. Several references have been made about drinks in plastic cups. Yes, around the swimming pool during the day, common sense. They appeared in the bar when the glass ones run out because the lone barman is rushed off his feet serving drinks or giving out two drinks to everybody because they do not have pint glasses. How long do they think half of beer will last? Funny thing occurred at the pool bar, I produced a plastic pint “glass”, we had heard about the tiny cups so came prepared, and asked for a shandy as I was very thirsty. Guess what, the barman could not fill it for me, but was quite happy to pour four little cups for me to fill it. Save the planet from plastic, not here. Now comes the down side, the drinks were watered down to the point of being tasteless and the evening entertainment was absolutely awful. Bingo, if you must, but two nights of Karaoke, two nights of somebody waving a semi exotic creature around and giving a little speech about them. Then spending the rest of the evening trying to flog expensive photographs of you and aforesaid creature. Oh and about thirty minutes one night of a keyboard player and a singer murdering some of the most dated songs in the cruise ship repertoire. With due consideration we would not come back unless there was a major change in the drinks/entertainment policy and management address basic issues like the beds. This could be a very good hotel for winter sun if they did not penny pinch so much.
Asked for a ground floor apartment, because someone in my family has back difficulties. When checked in they put us up in a second floor apartment. After a small argument with the aggressive receptionist we got put up in a ground floor. Room fixtures dodgy and hanging off walls. Ant infested room. Maids came twice and on the second time stole my girlfriends 21st birthday balloons and caught her in the act on the way out. Told reception about this and all they said was "if you don't like it call the police" what sort of customer service is that? If you like things being stolen with no compensation, ants in the bed, paying over £50 euros for a safe and hairdryer stay at bluebay costa teguise gardens
When I read reviews I was worried about what I had booked, which I didn't need too. Hotel was lovely and are apartment I got what I asked for top floor sea and pool views. Weather wasn't as good as it usual is but nothing stopped us always hit in afternoons to laze by pool with cocktails. The club bar had the most amazing barman who knew how to do a good scouse impression and when we went home I left him a ten euro tip to say thank you. Food was lovely I tryed all foods that I normally would pass on and each meal I enjoyed and the puddings too. The reception staff always kind and helpful so left them a 20 euro tip and even tipped waiters and taxi man too because it's a nice way to say thank you. Deffo will return next January but can't decide if to try there sister hotel on the beach and near square costa teguise beach. Thank you everyone been an amazing first holiday
Hotel is situated about a mile and half from town centre but there is a free shuttle for AI guests the food is superb and so is the drink there are no rooms just apartments which are very spacious,in the downside there are no englsh TV channels only 1 Spanish channel if you want English TV it's 20 euros a week which I think is extortionate with find is free in communal areas. We love it this was our second time in this hotel and the weather is stupendous so we are definitely going back next january
Stayed for a week in January. Good points first. Staff we encountered where friendly and professional. Our room had a pool view and a sea view. The bar was quite atmospheric. Food wasn’t awful but wasn’t great either. Decent tennis courts and squash, ping pong courts. Sauna looked good but wasn’t open . Negative points, beer wasn’t palatable, pool area was a bit tatty with people on the ale from 10am-6pm it got a bit messy and loud. Overall it wasn’t the worst place I’ve stayed but it was cheap and you shouldn’t expect 4-5 star facilities. Location wasn’t to bad , not far to walk to a few shops and bars . Bus stops out side. Probably wouldn’t return.
