Playa capricho Hotel

The staff from reception to room maids and bar were excellent. They could not be faulted 10/10. It is a lovely hotel, great pools, good location. Food for breakfast was really nice. But, only one issue, the temperature in the room never dropped below about 25c. I tried to get the aircon working but to no avail, therefore it was at times really hot.

The best thing about my stay was...

The pools are really good indoor and out.

Stayed, as a family for 1 week in this hotel on half board basis. Rooms were well appointed even if slightly dated. Beds were very comfortable and sleeping wasn't an issue, even though our rooms were directly above kitchens. Food was good with a huge choice at mealtime, somewhat confusingly laid out to the British eye but I am sure made sense to others. Generally more of a beach person but I have to say that the facilities in and around the large free-form pool were excellent. The temperature, usually off-putting at this time of year, was fine. The location of the hotel in Playa Serena is right on the expansive beach. It was refreshing to see reasonable prices for sunbeds and parasols. The walk along the front from the hotel into Roquetas town ( about 3km) is superb and easy to stop off at the numerous cheap cafes/bars for a beer and tapas. A superb holiday with wall to wall sunshine throughout.

The best thing about my stay was...

Easy access to the beach.

Fantastic

My daughter and I went on a well needed break in May 2014. Fantastic holiday. Hotel was very clean. Great breakfast....fried eggs and bacon cooked to order by a lovely lady in the kitchen. Language was sometimes a problem but was overcome (its not there fauly afterall that we had very little spanish) Rooms very clean...lovely views. Beds made and rooms cleaned every day. Within a couple of minutes walk to the beach. I dont think that that particular beach is suitable for swimming, but the hotels swimming pools and also an indoor pool more than makes up for that. There is also a jacuzzi next to the outside pool. There are plenty of restaurants around the hotel with very friendly families and staff that run them. Great supermarkets also if you need any shopping as there is also a fridge in the room. I could go on but theres not enough room on here!! ;)

The best thing about my stay was...

Everything!

Not that good.

Hotel ok but the noise level from guests and water fountains ect was a nightmare and this hotel is not a 4* hotel. Most staff were lovely but if you are not spanish some staff are very rude and ignorant to you. Dining room a nightmare. Mainly spanish people staying here with young children. We would not reccomend for mature couples.

10 days bed & breakfast June 2012

The suite in which we stayed was spacious and well maintained and clean The hotel itself is in need of modernisation but not to the detriment of our enjoyable stay We were the only British family there and expected this, this did hamper our 7 year olds ability to join in the entertainment however The rest of the mainly Spanish guests were the only down point of the stay, failing to observe the instructions not to "save" beds by the pool Failing to queue, whether for the bar or the pool slides Breakfast was a free for all and a nightmare to even get a cup of coffee would we go again, yes but we would go self catering so that we could do it at out leisure and not be the last in line for everything

The best thing about my stay was...

Review of 'Playacapricho'

Requested Sea View with Alpharooms but we did not have a room with sea view on arrival, next room offered was not prepared, so we were third time lucky with sea view.  Requested info on sauna faciliites told yes they do have but would have to go across road to another/sister hotel but given no further information, no apology was made for not having the sea view initially, but then phone call was received to ask if room was OK.  Overall, very clean facilites, staff are good, breakfast is excellent and would go again.  My brother was also staying for 5 nights and as was his birthday he did receive bottle of champagne which he was very pleased with.

Review of 'PLAYACAPRICHO'

Having lived in roquetas a few years ago we often go back to visit old friends and have stayed at various hotels in the area. This was the first time at the caprichio, being early December a lot of the hotels close to get ready for xmas.We requested a twin room with sea views and were really surprised to have a large very clean and comfortable room with two queen size beds and a fantastic view of the ocean and surrounding areas.another surprise was a bottle of wine left in the room to welcome us.The downfall to many of the hotels is the resaurant. As we arrived early saturday evening we decided to look in at the restaurant,if the food was not good then we would get changed and go out to eat. We were very surprised and could not fault it at all. There was plenty of choice and cooked freshly. Though buffet service. Even the staff wore mouth masks and gloves to stop any contamination. Breakfast was also very good.<br />Being early december the hotel was catering for senior citizens as far as the entertainment,this did not bother us as obviously we had'nt intended to stay in the hotel in the evenings. We had a car but as this hotel is very central it is not needed.On our last day we were not leaving the resort till the evening and we were allowed to keep our room on at no extra charge.(By the way the rooms are also soundproof so we were not bothered by the other guests. The staff in the hotel were all ovely people, very polite and friendly. We will certainly be going back there.

Review of 'PLAYACAPRICHO'

We have just enjoyed 1 week stay at the Playacapricho.The weather was wall to wall sunshine - great for December. We had<br />one evening when there was a thuderstorm and the roads flooded!<br />We had trouble finding the entrance as it was tucked down a small<br />side street - but when we found it we were very impressed. The reception area was decorated very tastefully for Christmas and very welcoming. The hotel has a Roman theme with pillars either side of the 2 Double beds.The staff vere very helpful and we had no lang<br />uage problems. <br />We did not opt for a sea view but were pleased with the view we had -<br />we looked out towards the mountains,down the main street (very interesting) and we could still see the sea if we looked to the<br />left. We enjoyed the breakfast as there was an option for every taste.<br />Roquetas is a very Spanish resort which we enjoy as we like to try the local dishes. There are plenty of restaurants including <br />a selection of English for the people who dont like to experiment<br />with the local food. We will be returning.
