Food was very good...staff very polite...entertainment was fab only down side was no aircon in the rooms and a ceiling fan in the living room. Not a great help when you're on the bedroom. Rooms cleaned every day
We Stayed here for 10 days with my partner and our 10 year old and had a lovely time there is a couple of downfalls for the hotel so I will start with them first Air con there isn't any and I really struggled to sleep but we did find a shop that hired them for 2 euro a day so we did that and it did help, Queuing in the evening for a drink was a joke some nights it was really bad when there was one person on the bar especially when you can only get two drinks in small cups, I liked the fact that they wouldn't let you in the pool area until it was open so people could not put there towels down early but hated the fact I had to get up early every morning to stand in a queue to get a bed then have to run to get one, The staff was lovely and worked really hard and the entertainment team was fab and so nice my daughter loved them, the food was lovely and plenty to choose from we ate out once and it's cheaper enough to go out there isn't much to do outside the hotel I like a bit more shops and bar's so that was disappointing I only saw cockroaches outside the hotel and the rooms were clean its a lovely hotel and I really enjoyed it.
Another amazing week spent here. Entertainment was fantastic, Igor, Clara and Angelica work so hard. Food was great. All staff were friendly. The honey rum and coke at the bar is a must. Apartments are spotless and all you need. Such a relaxing holiday. We will be back there again next year!!
Although our apartment on the first floor was good, a lot of others had complained on the ground floor of a toilet/sewer smell and broken furniture, when reported faults were acknowledged, the hotel did deal with them as soon as they could! Animation staff were amazing with the activities and lots of fun, even in their own time over a meal in the hotel! If you do not do All Inclusive, exit the hotel lobby, turn right and there are alot of bars etc, 5 mins walk down the road that do an English fry up for 3.50 euros or there is the occasional English bar. ie: chicken shack, my place.
We arrived at the hotel in the evening tired, hungry and thirsty. After being shown to our rooms which were very basic to say the least and no aircon; we decided to go and get something to eat. The restaurant was once again very basic, food was pretty terrible most days although the staff in their work extremely hard and are very polite and friendly. The bar well only 2 drinks allowed per person( which is a pain when your travelling with family of 7), expect to spend more time in the que than sat with your family enjoying a drink! Due to the silly 2 drink rule, being ridiculously understaffed and staff having to work hard across a bar and snack bar. Speaking of the snack bar this opens at 10.30 am and serves light snacks such as French fries (which are so over fried the will crack the strongest of teeth), microwaved pancakes, some kind of burger (god knows what meat it is made out of), toasties and cold sandwiches ( although there is no difference between the two). The following day we got up nice and early although your not allowed to sit by the pool until the chains are taken down and you are give permission to enter the pool area!! This resulted in queuing for the pool and once permission was given people running like Mo bloody Farah to get a sunbed; also inflatables are banned, the lifeguard is a miserable man who will either call the guards or push you in if you don't obey his commands. The entertainment staff are friendly and do try to get everyone involved, they work long hours with limited resources and are probably the best asset this hotel has (the only asset this hotel has). Outside the hotel their is a few bars bit really nothing much as it's in the middle of nowhere we ate out at the totem bar up the road, the food was amazing, highly recommend the steak from their it was perfect. Luckily the bus service is very good and only costs 1.50- 2 euros to travel to either Los christianos or Las America's where you will be spoilt for a choice of restaurants an bars. Lots of lucky lucky men though that like to try and sell you anything from sunglasses to crack! Staying at this hotel for 10 days was quite disappointing given the repetitivenes of the whole queuing up for everything (and I mean everything), the shabby state of the hotel, rooms, reception, pool and bar; the poor quality of food and the generally everything about this hotel i can honestly say I will NEVER be returning and would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
First impression was lovely, was greeted by a male receptionist who greeted us with a smile and was very informative. I had requested a seaview room but I was told they xould not garantee this, however the receptionist told us we would be moved to a sea view room the following day which was great. The apartment was very spacious, bedroom, lounge and bathroom with toilet and a balcony. The domestic staff kept the place very clean and tidy. Our towels was changes altenate days and bins was emptied and beds made. The resturant had a large selections of food to eat, Fish, Meat Vegetrarian, salads, pasta, fresh fruits, cakes, ice creams and a lot more items. There is something for everyone. I was impressed with the selections of wines at lunch and dinner. There are notices regarding not reserving sunbeds with towels, however by 08.00hrs 95% of the sun beds are taken. Some areas of the hotel could do with updating and for the size of the hotel there should be more than one bar, in the evening there is a long weight to be served. Please visit this hotel for yourself do not pay any attention to the odd negative review. I would certainly stay here again
Just came back from a 10 night all inclusive holiday 2 adults and 10year old daughter, And what a nice stay we had, 1st off the hotel isn't massive about 100 rooms so it wasn't rammed everyday, staff very nice, food very good and very clean hotel. The only nightmare is no air conditioning in rooms which is bad for sleeping we had to buy a fan from supermarket it was that hot, but apart from that very good, POOL=VERY GOOD you can't save beds they rope area off at evening and allow people round pool at 9am which stops everyone putting towels down and going back bed FOOD= VERY GOOD great choice and well cooked, you can get jugs of wine or water for your table which is nice so your not constantly up and down and because hotel isn't massive the size of eating area just right so no long queues BAR= GOOD/very stops at 10.30 and only 2 drinks not to busy until about 10 when everyone goes up for loads but you get that everywhere STAFF= FANTASTIC very polite always smiling and helpful ENTERTAINMENT=VERY GOOD the 3 staff are full of it, constantly on the go playing all usual pool games and activities then sorting all evening games, shows on couple times a week so plenty to do if you don't want lye in sun all day So overall very good, apart from A/C issue would of been fantastic but still a very enjoyable stay
Stayed at Palia for 10 days from 26 Aug 17. What can I say. Food is good if a little limited. Entertainment team are amazing Bar staff are over worked and seem run down. Pool staff are the most miserable people I have ever met. Now for the rooms. Oh dear me. They are worse than rooms I went to in the early 90's which is later than I think these rooms where last decorated. They are dark, hot and dingy dirty rooms. We where told we would get a patio we had a lose half a painted breeze block for our 2 year old to step down on to. Could not in all honestly recommend this hotel in its current state. Spend some money and modernise this hotel and you could charge quite a bit more.
Hotel is absolutely spotless. Staff are hard working and helpful. Food delicious - we were never hungry. Quiet and peaceful at night time, beautiful location, lovely guests, and can't wait to return!!
