Expert review of Los Jameos Playa
I understand why a lot of the clients from this hotel keep coming back year after year. The rooms and public areas are very well looked after and there are lots of spaces to relax. If you can, drag yourself away from the hotel facilities to take a promenade along the charming beachfront.
On the edge of the resort, overlooking a lovely beach.
Because the hotel is half way through a renovation, some of the rooms still have carpets, and rather chintzy decor, while the updated ones feature floor tiling and more modern furnishings. Try to ask for one of the renovated rooms. All bedrooms have a terrace or balcony: choose from a sea, pool, garden or countryside view.
A series of local-style buildings with an extensive, spacious swimming pool area surrounded by sprawling mature palm gardens.
The main restaurant area in seaside blue and white is welcoming and restful – I could have spent all day here, eating or not. The hotel makes a real effort with themed buffet evenings, which are good fun with good food. Light lunches are recommended here, and the afternoon tea party is a special touch.
The modern spa is not to be missed, with several saunas, plunge pool and a variety of treatments on offer, from relaxing massages to beautifying peels. There are also four tennis courts, two squash courts (fee charged for both) and a club for children of all ages.
It has to be said that the service here is not quite what you would expect from a four star, and especially not from Seaside, a much loved German chain.
The hotel has lots of repeat customers – mostly German, Spanish and British, families and couples.
The all-inclusive package really is all-inclusive (even afternoon tea) and well worth considering.
