Lovely clean hotel and very friendly staff. The hotel/resort was gorgeous and very well maintaned. Every member of staff from entertainment or housekeeping would make the effort to say hello to us. The food was gorgeous and a great selection offered each evening. The entertainment was good and they finish at 10pm to take early sleepers into consideration. We would...

Overall a great stay. A lovely spring escape. Nice Sun terrace above pool area. Exceptional all inclusive food & drinks. The only thing that lets this hotel down is the AC (non existent as doesn't work)!

Straight to the point. Got there and they acknowledged my requests when I booked. The lifts, it's like riding the tower of terror at Disney, you do not feel safe at all and the wait time is long. Take the stairs it's probably safer. Rooms are fine but Air Con only works when it's 26 degrees that's great but not...

Dear guest, We would like to thank you for your preference in selecting our Occidental Margaritas hotel for your holidays in April, as well as for taking the time to tell us about your recent experience among us. Easter time is considered as high season, this is why the hotel was crowded during that week. We are conscious about the...

Just returned from this holiday, weather very hot. Recommend this hotel especially if you upgrade, had a great time. Food, room and staff were very good. Only downside was the poor air conditioning, very warm of an evening. Putting that a side, would definitely go back if the conditioning was sorted.

As with many reviewers it is difficult to find anything different to comment on.Many previous reviewers commented on food which we found to be varied and agree that much of the food was cool. We always found no difficulty in finding sunloungers but were a little shocked to watch people putting towels out at 06:50 in the morning and even...

I read the reviews on TripAdvisor before booking this hotel and I was satisfied with it. On my arrival at the airport it made sense to catch a bus into Playa del ingles, cost me €3, you can't go wrong. I checked into the hotel and there was a language barrier but I managed to get through it without any...

We had a very enjoyable short break in March. Our room was excellent and we had sun on the balcony when the sun deck and pool areas lost the sun in the late afternoon - we went in March. Another nice touch was that in addition to a couple of chairs on the balcony they had matching footstools so we...
