    Truly terrible service

    I am not usually one to complain, and I am aware that I stayed at this hotel earlier in the year, but that does not mean my experience should be forgotten. The photos show the hotel as pretty and it is, but the service is truly horrible, prepare to wait 30min for a drink, to have the pool kept dirty at all times because the staff cannot be bothered to get off their cellphones, and the worst yet, the receptionist to mess up your bill in the end as you are about to rush to the airport. I think if they did an entire overhaul and replaced every staff person here I would consider returning, otherwise, spend your money somewhere else.

    The best vacation that me and my wife spent in vacation, best room service, best dinning area, the best pool in the hotel and the beach was excellent. Thank you wallah,bavaro for your good service. Another thing that I almost forgot the food was wonderful, breakfast,lunch and dinner,variety of your choice which was very good.

    In all our travels we have never stayed in such a bad hotel. No hot water No plug in sink One wet loo roll Disinterested staff Treated like second class guest Laughed at by staff when asked for help with wifi And come home with tummy bug Long queues at bar Ling queues in dinning room Dirty tables Mould in bathroom Shower holding on with one screw Even the tv didn't work

    Perfect holiday beautiful place highly recommend

    We enjoyed the hotel. The stuff was very helpful and friendly. Food was great and the drinks was good. Every morning there was yoga and somethting activites all day, pool or step.. And the night show was nice too. All the pools is clean and beautiful. The beach is perfect for swimmig and taking of sun. You dont have to leave there is so much to do. Our room was to the pool on the beach side. It was clean and everyday on the shower was hot water. On the reseption is open 24 and there is guardians everywhere, so nobody outsider is not coming in. There is activites, shopping on the hotel and near by. Ifbit possible to come back someday, we will! Thanks for everything! ??

    Stayed in building one (next to the beach) in Feb/March 2020. The room was nice and kept spotlessly clean - as was the rest of the hotel - by the housekeeping staff. We were overlooking the pool and snack bar which meant there was music playing loudly from 10 in the morning till 10 at night - so no quiet read on the balcony. The pool was one of 5 - scattered about the complex which was accessed from across the road. The dining room was crowded and regularly ran out of glasses for the drinks. Meals were served as a buffet The only problem was it was the same meals every day. The first two days of our holiday was OK but by the end of two weeks I was physicaly dreading going in to the dining room to eat, We ate out at restaurants in the nearby village but they weren't cheap. Drinks were served in glasses (when available) in the dining room but in plastic cups everywhere else. They also didnt have enough of the plastic cups so the staffwere always hunting round for used ones to wash. As a result the washing tended to be a fast rinse in a bowl of water. - not very hygenic and we suspect this is where we picked up the tummy bugs. The staff in the hotel were in tyhe main very friendly and helpful, but there were a lot of russian guests who tended to push in when you were queueing for drinks etcUnless you spoke up the staff just served them first.. Entertainment was also very poor and totally in Spanich. There was no concession to any other nationality On our trips out we met people from other hotels which were a lot better than ours. If I go again I would not be going back to the Whala
