Had a great 1 wks hol here at sol peliconas with my dad and son aged 10 yrs old. Swimming pool is big and there are plenty of areas to swim round even though water was cold at this time of year we still went in. Once we were in we were fine as weather was lovely! We also took pics at the swim up bar and this was closed would have liked to see it open at least a few times a week through out the wk ie weekend as the hotel seemed busier then. plenty of sunbeds for all, didnt once had to worry about sunbed hoggers who get up 1st thing in the morning and think its ok to take sunbeds when not using them as this hotel as a policy on this for those who do this!
Food was lovely and plentyfull huge variety to cater in my opinon for everyone,we were halfboard which was enough for us an didnt seem repetitive for us as for 1 wk as there were so may options you had fruit, salad bar, different meat aswell as fish every evening,paella, veg,cheeses breads,soups as well as lovely dessert section if you like me and hav a sweet tooth.Never once cued for meal times even though some mornings were busy like wednesdays and sunday mornings for people like me who were setting off early for the outdoor markets about a 10 min walk away! Breakfast you had cereals, croissantants, toast, fruit salads ,jams breads cheeses and of course the full english!
Staff were also friendly kind and helpful apart from a grumpy cleaner who when i first arrived i only asked about the lights not working as i didnt understand you had to slide your key card in the thing at the side near your door to work the lighten as this was never mentioned in reception an its the 1st time i see this. I just took it she had a bad day or i was interfering with time schedule in keeping in time cleaning the rooms as i only asked nicely if she could help and asked her only once, she start talking to here self on the way to my room! from that i understood she wasnt happy! Nevermind ha ha!
Rooms are basic but thats all you need if like me you only planning to sleep thats if you can specially if your a light sleeper like me as walls are very thin and i mean thin you can here people under you an above you etc.Through the week its not bad but by the weekend theres alot of stags and hens came when we were here and do they make alot of noise! I requested a low floor got a 3rd floor which was brill coz of my son! we were on the end and if you cud see the road and one of the pools from where we were.Hotel well located for us right next to beach next door literally to the indoor market, shops,bars etc!
Entertainment as we were so busy going out to other places only went once to the hotels which was the loro parriot show which was all well until they come round with the birds, plonkin them on you taken pictures with them and expecting you to hand over 10 euros for your unframed pic on the spot without a chance to think,view or make a decision to get your pic, basically you dont pay there and then your not gettin it! Shame really and if they explain how it is b4 the pic is taken it wud save there time and yours b4 they start the show! Dont know whether hotel staff were aware off this never though about it until now.These were not staff of the hotel but entertainers who entertain within the premises from the outside.Other hotel entertainment couldnt fault it pretty gud!
Kids were occupied by the flinstones childrens club which my son enjoyed and greatly entertained!
Theres been good points and some not but in the furture i would still stay here only because the pool was fantastic, food was great and most of the staff were polite and friendly! oh and location wise too!
