The Golden Donaire Beach has got a beach on its doorstep, which is long, wide and golden. The nearest bars and restaurants are less than a ten-minute walk away, and it’s the same distance to the local waterpark, Aquopolis.
The hotel itself has got family holidays all wrapped up. When you’re not relaxing in the pool or on the sun terrace, you can enjoy a game of French boules with the children. The hotel also hosts a Thomson Kid’s Club in the summer, where the kids can make new friends.
Food-wise, there’s plenty on offer at the help-yourself buffet. Breakfast is particularly good – think sizzling bacon and eggs – and there’s plenty to fill up on come dinnertime, too. Round off your evenings with a cocktail or two in the bar, which spills out onto an outdoor terrace.

A bit disappointed...
We went there for the second time early Sept 2013(2wks) after having been there Sept 2012 again for 2wks. We went as a family with a 3 yo on a full board basis. I am sorry to say but the standards have lowered since 2012. Our main probl was the filthy bathroom. There was dirt and grime on the actual bath tub handle to the point where if you touched it you'd soil your hand. yes the hotel is a bit old and shabby, yes the food is satisfactory at its best, yes there's a recession and all that but there's no damn excuse for not cleaning the place properly. We reported it to the reception, we reported it to the Thompson rep but the only thing that changed was the cleaner's attitude...it got worse. She started being snotty, we went at one point for 2 or 3 days without any cleaning being done at all as she'd just plain ignore us. The best thing about this hotel is it's location. It is slap bang on the beach, the water is shallow for a mile and it's just a perfect quiet spot which when you got young children is just perfect. We went there especially for the sea/beach and relaxation so not made use really of the pool, bar etc. Can't comment on those. The restaurant was often overcrowded(and we went outside the season) and yes the flies are a pest at times. The food is reasonably varied(but then again it's a cheapish 3star hotel so can't expect anything too special), and the kitchen looked clean. There was fish pretty much everyday as well as other meats and there was plenty so the queues weren't bad. The desserts are actually quite nice and a good selection. Drinks were not free(in the restaurants at least) not even for the all inclusivers (except for water and I think beer) but there's a good little shop just across the road and can get anything much cheaper. The kitchen staff are actually friendly if you get to know them a bit but they are so incredibly overworked and busy they can come across as a bit abrupt. Rooms facing the pool are awful for noise. The quiet ones are the ones facing the shop at the back, El Reco. We took our own pillows as the hotels are lumpy and not nice at all. Overall it was not a bad experience and you do get a fair bit for your money but we will not be returning there in the near future. I accept that you can't ask the world from a budget hotel and compromises have to be made but there's no excuse for refusing to clean the facilities when the guests complain about it repeatedly.More

Food full of flies!
Stayed here for one week last October in the half term. 2 adults 2 children. Booked last minute with a view to having a cheap week in the sun. You certainly get what you pay for!..... Stayed half board. Breakfast was ok, not a great deal of choice. At dinner time there were always flies buzzing all over the food! I have never seen this before abroad in an indoor restaurant, it was quite disgusting and put us right off eating here in the evenings. Having said that there was hardly any choice anyway, stayed in many a hotel and this was by far the worst buffet I have ever come across. Absolutely nothing for children to eat. The majority of the guests here were loud and crass, drinking all day long round the pool, farting and swearing in front of children. Mini disco was good for kids in the evenings but after that had finished it was bingo every night. No entertainment what so ever. Rooms were freezing in the evenings and the floors hadn't been cleaned in a while, full of dust and dirt. Would definitely not return to this hotel again. 2 * in my opinion. More

We spent here a week in 2012 october with my 1,5old son and husband. The hotela location is just perfect, right on the beach. We loved it. The rooms were basic, but its ok. Food was excellent, huge choice.(we had full board) The only thing, that this time of the year wasnt much going on and the bars, restaurants, started to closing down. But we was still enjoing the sun on the beach and went for many tours! We would definitely recommend this hotel!:)More
