    “A piece of Paradise”

    We stayed at this hotel for my husbands birthday at the beginning of February..... On arrival the reception was not maybe as grand as we were used to however the welcome we received was friendly very efficient and the staff explained everything we would need to make the most of our long weekend break. The rooms were very clean and very nicely decorated .. The grounds were amazing and well maintained as were all the swimming areas. We were fully inclusive and the choice, freshness and variety of food available was first class.. Waiting staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We were treated to a day at the private Bali beds for Jason's birthday this was the one of the high lights were we received refreshments and were waited on hand and foot. This hotel was top class and the dedication and attention to detail by all members of staff was greatly appreciated. We are already planning out next trip back to our piece of Paradise thank you for the amazing experience we had ...

    “Gintastic!”

    Just returned from a week away to grab some winter sun during 1/2 term holidays with the family. Got some cheap flights so decided to upgrade to premium all inclusive. This gives you the full drinks menu for free, great for us as we enjoy a nice large Gin and tonic or three😜. We had lots to try over the week. Also the upgrade gives you access to the Aloha-37 restaurant for breakfast and evening meal where we enjoyed 4 evening meals in a more formal setting. The steaks, Pork and fish were great as was the service. Also nice touch to get branded ice creams (Magnum-Cornetto etc) and snacks (Pringles) too. Premier AI also gives you free pool towel changes and safe along with the chance to stay in your room after midday on last day (subject to availability) great for us as we wanted to squeeze every last second from the glorious sunny day. The Buffet restaurant got busy after 18:30 and we felt a little rushed on the nights we used it as the queues grew outside. Food here was to similar standards to other AI hotels we have visited. We snacked at lunchtimes by the pool and the usual Pizza, chips etc on offer. Fresh sandwiches and toasties (self cook) also on offer along with salad bowls and fruit bowls to take back to the pool. All very nice. Self service drinks on offer or bar service if required. We stayed in a standard 1 bed apartment which was fine for us. Beds and pillows etc very comfortable. Sofa bed ok for our 8 and 11 year old. Rooms looked a little dated in parts but fine. Big balcony and clothes drier great for the wet pool kit. A little more space wouldn't go amiss but we didn't spend much time in room apart for sleep. Rooms tidied/cleaned daily. Grounds immaculately kept. Gardeners out daily pruning and raking. Really nice to walk through and grab some shade on a bench. Free bus service to resorts ever 30 mins or so. We tried both resorts. The wildlife lagoon and dunes at Maspalomas worth a visit. Animation team a hoot. Special mention to Deme and Carlos for keeping us entertained all day and night. Let the children join in the games and made the whole week feel like a party. Prizes awarded for winning the events a nice touch. Evening entertainment all finished by 22:30 but Bamboo club would keep you going until 2am if you wish! I joined the My Barcelo website and got 5% of bill in vouchers to spend. Bought some tshirts and nic-nacs for the kids. I think in some of their hotels you can get spa treatments but this hotels is independent. Overall a great week had by all. We met a few that had stayed multiple times. We would definitely visit a Barcelo hotel again. Muchos Gracias.

    “Lives up to expectations!”

    We stayed in an Apartment between 12-16 Feb 2018. We enjoyed our stay and had no issues but I wouldn't rave about it like some have. The restaurant was a little busy - I'd recommend getting there by 6.15 or leave it til later on as they ran out of tables by 6.30. The food was standard buffet style, but not much choice for a vegetarian - they did pull the stops out for Valentines Day though! Pool area was clean, with plenty of loungers so don't worry on that front (can't speak for peak season though). Gardens were very tidy, with Cacti dotted around between tall palms and clipped grass. Some staff were genuinely helpful (such as the Animation guy who went out of his way to get me some table tennis bats), others less so. As for the surrounding area, Playa del Ingles is harmless but a bit tacky, if you want classy aim for the Meloneras El Faro Boulevard bit instead. On the plus side there is a Spar and a La Caixa cash machine nearby if you need supplies. Regarding all inclusive or half board - its up to you. The staff don't mind either way and drinks are reasonable if you pay as you go (bottle of okay wine was €11) so it just comes down to how you plan to spend your time/how much you drink. We were HB as we went exploring almost every day. A highlight for us was visiting Sioux City, which is €7 in a taxi. Great fun mock Western Cowboy Town - arrive about 10am and the kids will be kept entertained until 2pm. Back to the Occidental Margaritas, it's one of the nicer hotels in the area I'd say, just set your expectations for a 4 star hotel and you will be pretty happy.

    “Another great stay”

    We thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and the fact that there is something to enjoy for everyone no matter the age group. The entertainment team were fantastic, in particular Demi and Carlos who would get everybody involved ed in one activity or another. There is an endless supply of activity daily from watching the cookery presentations (paella) and cocktail making (mojito and Caribbean punch were superb!) and of course, sampling these delights was a real treat for everyone regardless of whether all-inclusive, half board etc.

     Dear guest, There is nothing that we like more than knowing you have had a great time at our hotel. You have made a nice summary of what our entertainment team does during the day, but I would like to add the schedule of night activities in which we always have a spectacular show to close the night. At Occidental Margaritas, our clients choose their way of enjoying their stay, either with Half Board, All Inclusive or with our most complete product, the All Inclusive Premium, but each and every one of them will be able to enjoy all the services and activities that we have in the hotel. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, and that our entertainment team has helped you to do it, so, we will inform them your congratulations. We hope to see you soon at our hotel. Kind regards
