6/10 Good

We have stayed at the property a few times over the years, and have never had any problems as for the price you know what to expect. The only issue’s on this trip were that the hotel is looking dated and worn, and we only had look warm water for the length of our stay.

Hotel change to 4*
The apartments was closed and had not been open for many months due to Covid. The hotel had upgraded everyone to there 4 star Balia plazza which is in a much better area and is a far better hotel. No change was received by myself or anyone else I spoke to during the holiday however when reading the booking it does quote you should contact the hotel 72hrs before your arrival for check- in details so in fairness the hotel would of told myself and many others that they had been changed and upgraded

Very very disappointed with as I’m a gold member & was horrified when we arrived at this hotel it’s nothing like it says it is & you may think I overreacted but first negative post I’ve ever done but I asked for help as it stunk to high heaven & was very poor ! Gangs of pissed up lads etc ! Tried to move hotels but after 2hrs 1 day then same next day ! I was told how valuable I am etc but I recived no call back or e-mail as promised for 3 days had to go & pay for another hotel & tried again with online chat nothing very disappointed as we had a 3 year old & a 1 year old couldn’t let them stay there ! The hotel couldn’t care less about our concerns! Very disappointed with because it just shows if you have a problem or god forbid an emergency they wouldn’t even contact me back but I have 8 e-mail from them in 4 days advertising & asking for reviews & feedback ! Won’t be using them ever again very upset 😡 please only use free cancellation hotels in future

8/10 Very good

Ok stay
The rooms Are ok, a fair few aspects of fixing, shower curtain hanging off, light fitting broken, but if u want cheap and cheerful it’s clean ... only one key per room which is a little annoying but manageable.

4/10 Fair

Arrived late due to transfers nowhere to get anything to eat after long day of travel. Staff all good on reception and pool cafe some cleaners very lazy except one older lady good. No real facility's no restaurant bar seemed to open only evenings visit was really spoilt by group of loud mouthed inconsiderate English lads with no consideration for anybody keeping people awake with noise till 4-5 in the morning. Area around hotel run down close to strip if you like that sort of thing. Need some sort of entertainment no leaflets with info about area around Albuferia. Self catering kitchen had only 2 ring hob and microwave to cook with kettle and toaster supplied most of equipment came from IKEA I could go on and on won't be going back.Now I see why it was cheap.
