We stayed for 2 weeks in August with 2 young teenage girls. It was their first ever holiday.
We have stayed at other hotels in the area many times and already knew it was a good location, part of our reason for choosing. We were also on a budget with having the girls with us, another reason for choosing this hotel. We usually choose 4* half board but had to settle for 3* self catering.
Check in was straight forward enough and we were given a 1 bed ground floor apartment overlooking the pool. Those rooms on each block share a semi private terrace with each apartment having a table, chairs and 2 sun loungers. A very nice addition and great for getting away from the crowds while still watching the girls at the pool. Wasn't overly impressed with the fag ash and doc ends from above though.
The room was a bit dated and the kitchen was functional at best but other than making a bit of breakfast we ate out anyway.
We were concerned about noise at night but it turned out to be one of the quietest hotel rooms we've ever stayed in. One positive effect of most of the guests being on all-inclusive was that when the all-inc bar closed at 11:30pm everyone went to bed leaving it very quiet.
With the black-out curtains we struggled to get the girls up before 9:30 each morning.
We have always avoided School Holidays but we can't do so currently so found the hotel and the resort very busy. The pool area was packed every day and we never once spent a day by the pool. The loungers virtually encircled the pool and were packed tightly together. I'm much happier on the beach, where for 12Euros each day we had our own piece of paradise.
I looked out at the pool very early some mornings to see people already out on the beds with many others already towelled over. Not complaining. I never use hotel pools!
The girls did spend some time in the pool, particularly later in the day after we got back from the beach and they loved it. Junior made a few friends too.
We only ate one meal in the hotel which was lunch out in front of the bar by the pool. The lunch selection, quality, price and service were all very good.
There was entertainment every evening which we tried a couple of times. Unfortunately by the time we'd been out to eat the bar area was crammed full. On our first attempt there was no queue for service at the front of the bar but an endless queue at the all-inc counter. The lone barman looked over his shoulder with pleading eyes but no way was that queue going to let him come to serve me, so we left.
The second time we tried was more successful. We got served but there was no table available to sit at so we spent the evening perched on bar stools.
We gave up after that but there is so much happening in town we really didn't mind.
I expected the hotel free WiFi to be useless and/or flakey as it generally is in other hotels but was pleasantly surprised by Parque De La Paz. It was very usable, at least in our room. The older girl could facetime her mates and watch youtube without any problems.
There was no maid service on Tuesdays and Fridays, which was a relief for us. 2 days we didn't need to clean up after the girls before we left the room :)
To conclude, we were happy to find that the many positive reviews are well deserved and our only negatives are related to this being a popular hotel in peak season.
