So the only thing which positive about this hotel was the beautiful garden area and the beautiful beach. In the toilet hair from the guests before me. The rooms were only every 2 days cleaned, the bed linen only 1 time in the complete week changed. Over the bathtub was a tennis ball big hole ( picture is still uploaded). Fridge was leaky. The interior was somewhat outdated no flat tv, but so an older tube from the 90. Mattress was worn out but at least a …  read hotel review

For me was only a 3a maximum 3.5 star hotel. 4* hang not only from wellness, fitness and massage rooms from, and of the swimming pool or jacuzzi, sauna and steam room or by the size of the rooms, the number of bars and restaurants, but also of the board performance. In addition the gastronomy more. As you know, about 250 rooms, divided in adjoining rooms on the ground floor and 1st floor. The many sliding row are by paths were separated.

The starters buffet was always the same in the 2 weeks, the hauptspeisenangebot was ok, the dessert buffet gets the note 5, poor. The distance to the beach was about 300 meters with, as the crow flies not go back. Indication, that the beach on a hilly path to reach is would be better. read hotel review

2 weeks relaxation with 3 it was our 2. holiday in Ambar Beach that is why us of so many defendants' heavy ' way to the beach well-known. Normal is you in about 5 minutes to the beautiful sandy beach. Hotel is depending on rooms and depending on the neighbors noisy. We had luck except for the last 2 days, as we had the typical italian with increased volume and the inability of a door to close quiet in the hallway. Food was good but in the 2. week somewhat boringly. Room clean and a good size. Bathroom with shower ... and separate bath tub great. Terrace huge with a sea view from the side. Kinderaniamtion with tinka and tiziana great. Public about 40% german, 40% Italy (loud), rest Spain, France, England and Holland.

A very beautiful area. Unfortunately very clairaudient, at least in the rooms with a 6. The floors in hallway and rooms are tiled, so that you every shoe with paragraph hear. Conversations in the hallway echo of course very. The doors slam when closing, because they were very hard. The cleaning staff dragging everything on the floor, that you think the room next to or over one was demolished. The suit-case is a - or check out not picked up. You have to be alone. Depending on where you get one must climb stairs. If you went to the beach ..., the beautiful is, you have to be careful, that one didn't slip. The walk consists of many small. stones. The staff at the front desk quite rude answers. In the restaurant you should not fussy. The food is cold and cheap. Many noodles. You had to get drinks yourself. The coffee in the morning also, cup by cup. The staff is not very well trained, which one also the communication with the guests feel. The specialty restaurant was only saturday. Indoor swimming pool and wellness area i nice and a little bigger. The safe costs were 2, - €, per day. The minibar refill 15, - €, the drinks you can't choose. Sun lounger on the balcony or terrace 2, - €per day. Bail for towel 10, - €, 1, - €for cleaning withheld. I was glad, that i was only there for one week had booked. read hotel review

Are now for the 6 time in this hotel. It is not so big, everything is good to reach. Unfortunately, it is now in desperate need of it. Still like us the price-performance ratio. We always get a room at request. We will therefore continue to go back. Food you will always find something, even if it is better choice might be. Was a bit monotonous, but tastes. There are always also italians, because inviaggi is represented. But not bad. Many regular guests, the peace and quiet. Drinks are available until 1 am. Perfectly adequate. Room size is sufficient. Television ... programs on cable or satellite. read hotel review

With this hotel we value seen, but it was ok for our price, but not more. Our room was a little in need of renovation, the plaster was peeling from the ceiling in the bathroom off, then the bathtub with shower, na ja. The room smelled of cleaning very strongly after chlorine, towels were changed every two days. But you're only there to sleep in the room, so a wink. The food: one becomes always full. The diversity of all-inclusive leaves a little to be desired. The food was only lukewarm, within our week it was 2 times hot. Spices ... were missing mostly. Also you had to for the food the half-empty plates already hold, because the staff with clearing very fast. ☺ the good thing was, that it plentifully fruit, at least 3 sorts of there was always. The beach was just super, the way a bit difficult, but after 3 days everything is habit. In the entire seen, but it was a nice relaxing holiday, sun and beach made up for everything. read hotel review

    The rooms were already a bit older, which especially in the bathroom on crumbling grout and silicone to see. All of the rooms have a large balcony or a terrace, and i even had two beach chairs on my balcony. The tv-offer was not as extensive, as on the information-note in the rooms described, but i can watch television also at home. Unfortunately the rooms are quite noisy. You can hear every door in the house is closed.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is located on a hillside. From the pool area and some of the rooms you can see the sea. The rooms are in small houses on the hillside below the pool building. This means depending on the room you have a few meters walk, to the pool or restaurant. To the beach it was about 300m (of course depending on the room). Unfortunately the path not very nice. One must over gravel and on a poorly paved road. You need about 5 minutes from the hotel to the beach. In the vicinity of the hotel there was a bus stop. However, there a quite long detour. As the crow flies, it is only a few meters. Since esquinzo only consisted of hotels, however, there is a beach bar and other hotels nothing in the proximity. Overall i would not consider the location but ok.

    What really disappointed, were the exercise equipment. One was in the area was very dirty and the towels to clean the equipment was also empty. The devices themselves were not very good and partly also has already recognized rust. The elliptical machine was very unpleasant in its movements. The bikes have the listings not working. The pools in the spa area were heated advertised, but was in no jacuzzi only 20 °c. The outdoor swimming pools, i have never used it, because the water was too cold. However the pools were clean.

  • Gastronomy

    The food was mostly very good. There were always freshly fried meat and/or fish, vegetables, salads, pasta and rice. The leftovers from the day before, often in the salad again found, which i personally but find in order. The chefs from the ' leftovers' delicious salads made. On new year's eve dinner there was a big gala buffet in nice atmosphere. Really great was also the big cheese in the evening. The sushi was not unfortunately very good. Generally i would have more local cuisine. Otherwise i was with the food but good. The drinks were well mixed, but i think the glasses in the evening bar a little small (only 0.2 liters). At the pool bar gave it the cocktails from the paper cup. Not very much but i can understand, if in the pool area no glass to break again. The only thing i really didn't like was the coffee. Instant coffee from the machine is not really my taste. They may spanish actually so good cafe solo...

    The staff was predominantly friendly. The staff at the pool bar only worked sometimes a little gene ffs. The room was cleaned well (one day, it was not cleaned). Unfortunately, the wireless internet fee (25 Euro for 7 days). I think it is no longer adequate. The front desk was good (also in the room).
