Hello La Playa
We have had a communication from our Travel Agent to advise us of refurbishment works during July - October 2017.
We are staying for 14 nights from 12th Sep.
I am confused because there are several reviews from 2016 which mention refurb work taking place and finishing by 2017.
So, should we expect refurb work or not? Having stayed at La Playa before I'm sure any work will be discreet and "guest friendly" but just wondered?
ps Can't wait to for our visit. Just wish we were coming sooner!
I don't know for sure. I'm sure if you called them, they would be able to answer. I haven't heard of any.
I believe there will be extensive work going on but if you contact the hotel directly they will be able to what areas will be affected.
I just got back today from a 7 night stay. The work started half way through our vacation. I did not know about the renovations until I already booked the stay. They do try to make it discreet but it is noticible. If you are looking for a great beach then this is the place or any one of the condos near it. The resort fee covers the beach chairs and umbrellas. The staff on the beach is great and accommodating. Housekeeping, however, has thrown in the towel (no pun intended). They have forgotten to clean our room twice and when they did come, forgot some items. The hotel is in need of some upgrades so it's good they are doing it. It just would have been nice to have been compensated in some way. Perhaps a free drink or breakfast. Would have gone a long way.
There are works going on this summer and I would highly recommend you contact the hotel directly to see what is planned for when you are staying.
Would talk to the hotel...I am sure there are parts of the hotel finished
and won't interfere with your stay...but as it is "summer" I am sure they
consider if off season and have to get the work done!
BEAUTIFUL resort...we are going in the WINTER months!
We have stayed here many times, however, the current renovations are significant and intrusive. The Gulf Tower is shut with extensive and noisy works taking place. The works mean the hotel lobby, Baleen restaurant, bar, outside terrace for the bar and restaurant, fire pit area with outside seating and the grassy area that hosts weddings, etc, are all shut and cordoned off. Two swimming pools are shut, with the main pool remaining open. The restaurant and bar have been moved up a floor to the members' area, although the upstairs outside terrace area is shut. As always the staff are excellent and very welcoming. I strongly suggest you check what works are taking place and in particular what facilities are open before you come.
