Nice and clean hotel, the staff is very nice and helpful. Our room was spacious and really nice with sea view. The kids club our daughter gladly accepted. I personally was the hotel is a bit too big since it evening already squabbling around the ceilings in the outdoor cinema and hardly any seats at the bars and in the restaurant partly to get were. We are in terms of food not really picky, but were looking forward in the 2. week going back to the food at …  read hotel review

Too many german speaking seniors. Lots of regular guests, there is mostly the opinion, that a loss of about food and evening events between now 'Alltours-hotel' and former 'Maritim-Hotel' clearly noticeable is. …  read hotel review

    The entertainment team did a great job of creating an atmosphere and the my 11 year old daughter was busy most days with the maxi club they ran for her age group. So much so, that me and my wife felt like we were on a couples holiday. Whether it was an early morning round of darts, or a strange yet enjoyable version of 'Cats' (I'm not joking) in the evening, the entertainment team did everything to make you feel welcome. There was also open air cinema most nights, live music, dj's, bingo, several shows, even a show put on by the children of the different clubs. All in all very good, especially with what they had to work with. The main pool was just about large enough and very cold. It took a few minutes standing in it to warm up each day and I can only imagine how cold it was if you visited in the spring. We never had a problem getting a sun lounger, but then again being married to a German, there was always a towel there after breakfast. There was supposedly a rule that you couldn't lay towels down before you wanted to go down to the pool or they'd be removed. Ignore this rule otherwise you won't get a lounger.

    The room was clean and despite my small query about a sea view ( meerseite apparently doesn't mean meerblick, just that your room is on the same side as the sea, which I'm sorry allsun is a bit of con and it should be made more clear) was fine. A flat screen TV with German channels (again a few English channels would've been nice for your non German holidaymakers), a decent sized bathroom which was clean and relatively modern.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    The food was quite good, although not quite the wonder I've read in some of the reviews. If you like garlic you'll love it because it felt like everything was cooked in it. There was a wide selection of food and the salad bar in particular was very good. Deserts were good, although cream was always artificial and the ice cream wasn't great. A great selection of meat and vegetables and because it's aimed at the German market there's even 'coffee & cake' each day at 3pm. The service in the restaurant was good, but we always found lunch both in food quality and service better than the evening meal. I think this was because we could eat outside on the patio at lunch time but not in the evening. It was also less hectic and I personally found the choice of food at lunch to be better. Overall, a good restaurant, but not great.

  • Service
    5.0

    The staff are all friendly and on the few occasions we needed something from reception (a 2nd pillow, change of lightbulb), it was provided quickly (which at other hotels isn't always the case). Here is my first slight minus point. The hotel is advertised as a hotel with staff who speak German/English & of course Spanish. Well, while it's clearly aimed at German holidaymakers, it would've been nice to have been able to have spoken to staff in mother tongue. I tried a few times, but I just got blank looks in return. This is a minor point though and so I continued my questionable German.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the beach. The beach is really beautiful and as long as the tide is out, you can walk for hours. There's a large supermarket just across the road from the hotel, in case you need to stock up on drinks for your day trips. This hotel is in a quiet area of the land and if you want nightlife and endless souvenir shops, this isn't the hotel for you.

I do not know, how often i was now in this hotel, i like it is still excellent. Also i had the pleasure, nor the 282 people strong senior group to meet in the hotel. Therefore it was of course full and loud - but one can hardly blame the hotel. The food i found to have an improvement, even if still mexican, asian and italian theme buffets be aligned, which still not my case. I would much prefer the local cuisine. But overall the selection was good and the taste also ok. The service is still moderate. But there ... were now in front of the hotel a large, well-stocked supermarket, the luckily a its own parking. The shopping so clearly improved. read hotel review
