Dissapointing - very low value for money

Old rooms, poor food, extra charges in every corner and the most importent thing - very bad service.

The restaurants were fully booked (i dont know why) at our first day of arrival so we has to eat dinner at 22:00-22:30 in each of our day of stay or comprimise on our selection.

The massages in the spa were fully booked and we found a spot only at our last day of the vacation - after paying 270 euros for the 2 of us we wanted to enter and use the rest of the spa (sauna, jakuzzi, pool) and been told to pay 30 euros each - first time its happening to me.

We were 2 adults and one 4 years old child that we payed extra foe him as expected but apparently doesnt get them to make his bad or get him a towel to the room - every day we needed to call the reception and ask an "extra" towel for him.

Finding a bed in a good spot at the pool is allmost impossible and then when you see one you realize that its with extra charge of 100-200 euros - unbelievable.

The managers who welcomes the guests at the breakfast is one of the most unpleasant man that i've met. Always grumpy, angry and talks with a bad tone. I excpected from one who his job is to welcome people to be far more polite and patience.

In conclusion, very dissapointing experience. We've been in gran melia at rome, italy and it was amazing so we came with alot of expectations. We came after a perfect week in rotal hideway hotel - perfect service with things that we cannot expected and in gran melia it was the oposite - looks like nobody cares about you. Like they have to much guests to handle so they dont have in mind giving good sercive but just making out of the guests the max income from their stay.

For example, most of these thing i wrote and send by mail to the hotes servixe on our second day of our stay. Nobody called us or answered to the mail. Shame.

We'll not coming back to this hotel for sure and probebly to all of the hotels of this company.

Family Holiday

Just back from an 11 nights stay at this hotel. This is our 2nd visit and from reading some reviews regarding the buffet food I was a little worried but there was no need to worry. The food was actually better this time around. Loads of selection, there was only one downside I don’t really think they cater very well for kids for the lunch and dinner times. We booked a deluxe twin room and I have to say the sofa beds they provide for children is an absolute joke!! I’ve 2 boys aged 6 & 9 and we ended up having to put one each night into our own bed. The adults bed is really big and comfy. Went went all inclusive with the drinks package, we were so happy we did as some of the prices were really high. For a Smirnoff vodka & Diet it is €12. There is also a fab ice cream bar at the Oasis bar and grill. The ice cream was included in our package again if you were paying for it yourself it can be quiet pricey. It was €6 for 1 scoop of ice cream on a cone. We ate in the Market Grill nearly every day for lunch. The food and service were amazing from here. They do have a variety of food choices even for the kids. Only down side is that if your going for lunch any later then 1:30pm expect a queue when you get there. It does open from midday. We also felt like many others there that although we had the all inclusive drinks package it was sometimes difficult to get a drink. I found this the worst at the Oasis pool bar. They were definitely under staffed. We tried all the restaurants and the Asian was our favourite again they didn’t cater very well for children as there was only 2 options for kids Rice or Noodles with a tomato sauce. We ended up ordering the starts for the kids to have. Finally this one last spoiled our amazing holiday. The hotel provides robes in your room. DO NOT leave anything in the pockets. Probably pretty obvious to most people but before a shower on our 3rd day I put my expensive watch into the pocket of one of these robes. After showing I hung the robe up in the bathroom. Forgot to take my watch back out. Realised about lunch time and went back up to the room to get my watch only to realise that the house cleaning had taken the robe! They hadn’t taken any robes from the room before this, anyway as soon as I realise I went to Guest Services. They said that their laundry is done by an out side service that they would ring them and explained what had happened. Well this went on for the rest of the holiday for 8 days we went to Guest services to be told my watch hadn’t shown up yet and that there was nothing else they could do. On our last night we spoke again to the guest services who told me by the morning they and the laundry company would have a solution for me. Well on our last morning knowing we were getting picked up at 9:30am we met the guest relations manager!! We found it really bad that she wasn’t aware of most of the details of what had happened and didn’t even know the correct value of my watch. The only thing she said she could do was to give us a letter with the company stamp for our insurance. I know it’s partly my own fault for leaving the watch in the robe but this hotel have not taken any responsibility not even an apology or even offered anything in the way of compensation and that’s not what I was after but myself and my husband were so disgusted at our treatment for a supposed 5 star plus hotel. It really did spoil an amazing holiday for us. Hope my reviews helps.
