Another Brilliant Holiday

Just had our 3rd holiday (two weeks) to this hotel, will go back anytime. Very high quality standard, rooms big and cleaned regularly, all staff great and very helpful, makes a change for hotel staff to be so friendly all the time. Food fabntastic selection and quality, great open air dining. The hotel is in a great position for all amenities, beahc/Ymbo etc. Customer Service is very high friom check in to departure, no issue at all. Would recommend to anyone to try, you will not be disappointed.

Another Amazing Stay

Stayed here on the 7th August for a week and loved every part of it. Great weather, great service and fantastic food. Plenty of sun beds if people bear in mind that if you have no kids then you should not try to use the beds next to the kids pool. People still getting up for beds at 8am even though you can't put towels down until 8:45am. I got out of bed at 8:40am and still got beds.

Great family holiday

Great hotel. All staff friendly, happy and helpful. Stayed with our two children and the childrens' club was fabulous they really enjoyed it. Went all inclusive, this worked well, wrist bands for the children and they could get their drinks as they liked. Food very good and varied. Easy walking distance to the beach.

very friendly, 4 star hotel with 5 star service. Amazing hotel.

We loved everything about this hotel, the staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. We arrived 0100 to find they had left 2 plates of cold meats, cheese, bread, fruit, yoghurts and water which we really appreciated. The room was spacious and double bed was more like a king size! Luxurious bathroom with complimentary goodies such as shampoo, shower gel, nail files, shower caps, sewing kits, soap etc. Separate walk in closet for clothes and shoes. Large hd tv with english channels although not many in comparison to the german and spanish channels, I think we had a few news, 1 sport and 1 cartoon. All rooms face inwards towards pool area and all with balconies. Air con kept us cool on warm nights. The terrace restaurant was amazing. I couldnt fault the food at all. Plenty of choice, steaks and fresh fish cooked immediately to your liking, huge joints of roasted meats cooked daily and carved to order. So much choice..all fresh and plenty for everyone. The pool had a small waterful and a jacuzzi area, very clean and a nice temperature. Plenty of different terraces around the pool with sun loungers and with the hotel at full capacity never a problem finding one to sunbathe on any time of day.Every evening there was enteretainment which was always really enjoyable. The hotel has a wellness centre, gym, sauna, private nude terrace with jacuzzi...we had a look but didnt use these facilities. The hotel was in close proximity to various shopping centres and bars and ther beach was only a 5 minute walk away. We cant wait to go back and we will definitely be staying here again next time.

Awful

I find it hard to believe that the previous reviews have been good! Perhaps this hotel has had a recent major problem. We travelled all inclusive with family as we do each year and not one of us was happy with the service at Seaside Sandy Beach. It is quite obviously a German run hotel where the british are made to feel less welcome.The staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. We had to wait far too long to be served drinks in the restaurant and were ignored when we attracted the attention of the waiters. Just an example of their rudeness was when a waiter dropped a whole plate of left over food down one of our party at lunchtime, he then proceeded to shout at us because the chairs were too close together for him to get through (the layout of the restaurant is obviously not the fault of the holiday maker). I was on crutches with a broken foot and the waiters always tried to seat me at the furthest distance from the buffet and were stroppy when we requested a closer table even though we were prepared to wait if one was not immediately available. My mother who is in her 70's was very upset to be treated so badly by the staff who made her wait at least 20 minutes for a bottle of water at each meal time. We complained constantly making our holiday much less enjoyable. In the end the restaraunt manager made the effort to improve the service but it was far too little too late. The grill was quite good but all the other food was bland, over cooked and must have been bought from Spains equivalent of Iceland. It's such a shame because the hotel itself is not too bad and the maid service etc was excellent although there were problems such as other peoples waste coming up through the plug in the bathroom sink. If you have already booked this then I wish you luck and hope our complaints have been taken on board so that you have an enjoyable stay. If you haven't already booked I would advise you to think very carefully.

EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE

We have just returned from the Seaside Sandy Beach after spending a week on A/I basis and found the hotel to be superb and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone! The staff are friendly and helpfull the pool and surrounding area very nice, The Food is excellent, freshly cooked and a great selection every day, All the A/I drinks are served in glasses which is a bonus for most A/I hotels, Location is good as beach is 5 mins easy walk, The entertainment is good and not over the top! Only one minus point is if there is a spillage on the floor of the restaurant it seems all the staff think it's beneath them to clear it up and send for a cleaner, this can take a while and can be dangerous as we witnessed several people slipping, thankfully nobody was hurt, it's a small gripe in an otherwise perfect holiday, we would go back here again! We have done a lot of A/I holidays over the last few years as they suit us and we are happy to say this is the best we have experienced

The best thing about my stay was...

The relaxed atmosphere and the food.....great!

Friendly, relaxing holiday

VERY FRIENDLY HELPFUL STAFF WITH GOOD SENSE OF HUMOUR. SERVICE ALWAYS WITH A SMILE. THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC FOR BUFFET SERVICE. MEATS AND FISH COOKED TO ORDER. AMAZING CHOICE OF SALADS AND VEGETABLES. IT'S NOT TOO GOOD FOR THE FIGURE BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH CHOICE OF DESSERTS AND FRUIT TOO. OUR ROOM WAS SPACIOUS AND COMFORTABLE WITH A SUPERB SHOWER. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE TO THAT WAS THAT WE DID NOT HAVE SUN ON THE BALCONY AT ANY POINT DURING THE DAY - THIS WAS UNUSUAL AS MOST ROOMS GET THE SUN AT SOME TIME.. WE WERE JUST UNLUCKY AND WILL KNOW TO ASK FOR A DIFFERENT ROOM ANOTHER TIME.WHAT I LIKED BEST ABOUT THE HOTELWAS HOW PLEASANT AND FRIENDLY THE STAFF ARE AND HOW WELL RUN IT IS. THE WORST THING IS HAVING TO WALK AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING TO GET TO THE BODY OF THE HOTEL, THE RESTAURANT AND THE SALON BAR. I FEEL IT IS RATHER TOO COLD TO EAT OUTSIDE DURING THE WINTER MONTHS AND THE INTERIOR RESTAURANT IS ONLY USED WHEN IT IS ACTUALLY RAINING.

First class!

Great week's holiday over the Christmas period. Excellent location close to the beach and hotel amenities didn't disappoint. The room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of room. What really stood out was the friendliness of the staff who couldn't do enough to help you and the quality of the food - 5 star cuisine. Only 2 less than positive comments: 1. The permitted smoking in almost all areas - the non-smoking restuarant area was in a corner where service was sometimes overlooked. 2, The Christmas Gala Dinner which was organised in 2 fixed seating times and just didn't work - the staff couldn't handle it. We waited 45 minutes to receive a bottle of wine after asking 3 times! But - that didn't spoil the holiday and we will always look back with fond memories.
