My wife and I spent a very pleasant week at the Condesa from 25/9/15 to 2/10/15
We arrived at 1130 and were informed by Majid on reception that our room was not ready as the cleaners hadn't finished. He gave us an wristband and told us to have a meal and a drink and to come back later. We requested a high room and he said he would see what he could do.
When we returned Majid said he had a special room for us on the 4th floor, and he was right the room was large with a superb bathroom,balcony,with a sea view.
We had nothing but praise for the staff they all worked so hard whether they were bar staff, in the restaurant, cleaners, or entertainment staff.
We were amazed at the energy of the entertainment boys and girls we thought they were all fitted with Durarcell batteries.
The restaurant was clean and there was always lots of choice,especially the fish, although we did feel the food was not up to a 4 star hotel, but the breakfast was always good.
The evening entertainment was of a good standard, and we were very impressed with a magician who not only entertained us adults, but was very good with a young lad he got out of the audience.
Another nights show with a The Jackson tribute group was spoilt by an idiot out of the audience who decided to go on stage, because he thought he could sing. Needless to say he couldn't, and he just made a fool of himself.
The beach had very nice sand and the sea was very shallow which made it very safe for children, and it also had a very alert lifeguard on duty.
All in all our stay at the Condesa was a very good week made all the more pleasant by the hardworking staff.
Thanks to all at the Condesa.More
We stayed a week here as part of a cruise and stay holiday
Well what can i say about this hotel except its absolutely brilliant rooms are spacious modern with a flat screen tv on the wall which to my amazement showed uk soaps ie Emmerdale Corra and East Enders the bathroom was modern with all mod cons inc a whirlpool bathThe hotel is on the beach which is a plus you could eat breakfast and lunch at the pool restaurant which was lovely and less crowded than the main hotel restaurant The kids looked to be well catered for too lovely kids area and splash pool with large animal attractions and slides all in all a fantastic end to our two weeks awayMore
Good family holiday
A really good family holiday apart from the 3 days of rain! The hotel is located on the beach which was superb. The hotel pools are great for the kids and the slides where a real hit!
The staff are very friendly, food is typical of an all inclusive hotel, lots of choice with theme nights depending on what day of the week it is! The beer and spirits are the same as most all inclusives!
Can't fault the hotel at all we really enjoyed our stay! My little lad made a lot of new friends so a lot of time we stayed around the slide pool. There is food bar at this pool that serves burgers, hot dogs toasted sarnies nuggets and chips all day if that floats your boat!
If you like to get out and about there is s bus stop at the top of the road, this will get you into the port for just under 2 euros! You can walk along the beach to the port and there are plenty of bars along the way to stop for a crafty sherbet on route! It takes about 40mins to walk. There is a really nice restaurant in the port which is definitely worth the little trip, c'an punyetes which is a traditional Spanish restaurant it is fantastic.
We went with Thomson but you can get it loads cheaper if you book direct. More
Fabulous hotel on the beach
My husband and I have just returned from 2 glorious weeks at the hotel (28/08 - 11/09). When we arrived we had a lovely glass of cold cava which was most welcome as it was around 35oF. It only took minutes for us to be checked in, have our towel token, safe key and WiFi code which I might add was brilliant and could be used all round the hotel even in the rooms.
Now one of my favourite parts, the food, brilliant. The dining room was well laid out and had soft drinks, wine and beer on tap so you could help yourself. The best part of the restaurant was the grill, Mauri the grill chef was brilliant the whole time we were there, he could cook meat which was not over cooked or under cooked it was perfect especially the lamb chops. The choice of salads, bread, meat, cheese, pizza and desserts were fabulous. They have a BBQ once a week in the other restaurant where you can sit outside and be serenaded by a live band.
We never used the pool during our stay as we prefer the beach which was fantastic. Now a little tip for you, if you like the beach you can reserve your sunbeds for a minimum of 4 days for 36 euros. The beach sunbeds are run by the council so it is monitored. If you reserve your beds then you get a reserved sign pinned to the trolley and it stays there until your time is up. Other people will use your beds when you are not there but you just tell them that they are reserved and the will leave.
You can go the the bar beside the beach and take drinks down with you. The beach stairs are right beside your pool. The restaurant manager is very nice and if you have any problems just ask to speak to him and he will come see you.
Now another tip if you want to see the shows, which are outside. If you want to sit on the restaurant balcony then go for your dinner around 8.30 and get a table outside the restaurant then when dinner is finished just stay on your table.
Well unfortunately there is a negative, the all inclusive finishes at 11.30 and the bars close at that time. At 12 they switch the lights out even if you are sitting in the bar or not. The rooms are long but narrow, but we had a fantastic sea view, even if they say it is a partial sea view it will still be great as there is no large buildings to obscure it.
If you want to go out for a walk, then go out the hotel to the main road and turn left, walk along the road for at least 10 - 15 min and you will find a car rental place, turn left and go down the street and at the bottom of the street there is a bar called The Royal Beach with lovely food, great cocktails and beautiful views over the beach.
The Marina is a ten minute taxi ride away about 8 euros and has lots of pubs/restaurants. The old town is really good to see and has a huge market, well worth a visit.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody, really worth a visit.More
a lovely week
this is the 2nd time we have been and standard has dropped, although its a family hotel you don't expect to be surrounded by kids in late September so the night entertainment even at 9.00 was still geared around kids hotel is clean staff friendly but will be looking for couples only hotels from nowMore
