Definitely hotel for the Spanish
Posted Jun 12, 2015
Hotel in good condition, reception staff very helpful with directions to supermarket & shopping centre, (ours are better), but a lack of friendliness in most staff and although breakfast was good, if you like fruit, cereal, yoghurts and cakes; bacon was OK, scrambled eggs smelled off and chorizo type sausages lovely, the young waiter and older manager? were miserable, never said "ola" or smiled, though neither did anyone else. Not a holiday type of environment in my opinion and really more suitable for the Spanish.
Thought I could cope with the town being nearly all Spanish, as were the menus but I had to find somewhere for lunch and dinner every day and on my own, it was quite difficult, as there were loads of different type of restaurants. Tried a cheapish open air cafe and had garlic prawns for 7 euros, which were salty and tough one day and a more expensive starter of tuna salad and lamb shank another day and a litre of sangria for 20 euros but felt self conscious, as everyone kept looking at me by myself. Eventually found Rincona just on edge of beach and felt my most comfortable, with a good reasonably priced menu.
One day had a good meal in "Y" restaurant, had tuna salad and fish, and I felt good, then three days later the meal was 4 euros more and service was not very good. Because the town was nearly empty during the week, some restaurants don't even open and at the weekend the Spanish come and the place is heaving.
