We stayed at don pablo from 1july to 10th july. requested a low floor which was quiet on a sunny side. We emailed one week before which was noted and allocated on arrival( room 107 )overlooking the bowls green.
Rooms are clean and the bathroom seem to have been recently renovated and had a spacious walk in shower.
the balcony was large enough and has washing line along with chairs and table and get the sun around midday to sunset.
Breakfast was fine with plenty of choice and never any problems getting seated ,the conservatory was pleasant place to eat but a long way from the food and drink.
we stayed half board so can't comment on lunch .
Dinner has plenty of choice with fish lamb beef pork and also a pasta service and salad bar. I read criticism of the food earlier on but we were very pleased with the standard and choice. The drinks served by the waiters are fairly pricey a bottle of water almost 2 euros whch is one glass per person we just used all the loose change to pay for them.
The pablo is part of three hotels that surround lovely well kept gardens, lit on an evening and even has its own parrakeets that seem to have nested in the palm trees ( noisy devils)
The pools were well kept and there is enough sun beds to go round and the umbrellas seem to be new. there is also shaded areas to lay under which was very useful in the hot sun.
the entertainment wasnt to our liking more for the kids and very noisy .
drinks in the hotel were rather expensive 12 euros for 2 gin and tonics but the bars outside will do the same for 8 to 9 euros.
It was our 1st time to this area of spain so cant comment if its better or worse but were pleasantly surprised by the choice of bars and restaurants, younger folk may need to go up to the town centre for more lively bars which is reached by lift 50 cents or a short but steep climb.
there are lots of supermarkets but if you go out of the hotel towards the beach and turn left then head past the large roundabout and just down a small slope after the irish bar you will find a cheap supermarket that does cold beers and makes fresh baguettes for 2.95 euros.
overall we would definatelly return to the pablo, the staff were friendly,polite and would always try to help you if asked.The public areas were spotless as was the dining room .
thank you don pablo for a great holiday..
