Hotel Victoria Playa
Ranked #8 of 24 Hotels in Almunecar
Reviewed 12 October 2017

Just come back from a week at the Victoria playa in santo Tomas. Although the rooms are very basic ( no kettle or fridge) they were kept spotlessly clean. Towels were changed everyday. Beds weren't the best you could feel the springs though them. Food was excellent a really good choice every day in the restaurant although the poolside snacks were rubbish. Also if you wanted a bottle of water you had to buy these and they woul not allow you to refil your bottle from the water machine!!! If you wanted a cocktail you had to pay an extra charge for these also.
The bus stops outside the hotel and is good for seeing the island and only a couple of euros. On the whole it is a lovely place to stay and would definitely go again.

Room Tip: room away from lifts people have no consideration when exiting at night and it very often wakes you...

Myself my husband and 3 year old boy traveled to Hotel Victoria Playa and stayed from 17 to 27 September 2017.

Hotel: clean, tidy and well maintained.
Restaurant: clean, tidy & staff are friendly.
Food. High standard for 3 Star hotel. Always able to find something to eat. Could do with more drink machines - always a queue.
Bedrooms: bedding not like the brochure. Plain white sheets. New Mattresses required, beds are uncomfortable, bones were aching by the end of the holiday.
Location. Poor location, we were told the bus service unreliable and always full by the time it reached our hotel therefore we were discouraged to use the service by Reps and other guests. We did not was to be stranded anywhere so we ended up hiring a car. It takes 30minutes by car to travel to any of the 2 major cities. Only a couple of shops at the hotel. Location would be murder if you were self catering. Cooked breakfast was €10.
Beech: lovely. Sun loungers (x2) €15 per day.
Pool: Clean and tidy.
Kids Club: staff excellent.
Entertainment for adults typical fair, could be better.
Weather: was not great for a couple of days so the wifi went down and the telly did not work.
Local restaurants : never used any, nothing special to choose from. Would have liked to eat out however there was no recommendation from the reps unless you wished to travel outside the resort.
Local pubs: never used any of them, nothing special.
Overall, location of the hotel was not for us - we would have liked to looked around a few shops at night time and go to a decent restaurant but there was nothing at the resort. Literally if you wish to do nothing but sunbath this is the resort for you.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled with family

We needed somewhere to stay for one night, while in the area for business.

I would say that this is a typical package holiday hotel that one could expect if going away for a week or two.

The staff were incredibly nice. As this hotel caters almost solely for Spanish customers (Spanish families mainly), I had to make use of my very basic Spanish - and all the staff were wonderfully patient.

The hotel facilities are clean, but do look a bit worn. I remember staying in hotels that looked like this in the 1980s. That all said - there is nothing wrong with that. It is clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff really make an effort, and the clientele are lovely (as are virtually all Spanish people after all).

Yes, there were niggles - like the bathroom floor got easily wet, and the balcony door did not lock properly - but it would have been impossible for anyone other than Spider-Man to get into the balcony, and the hotel is very safe.

The pool area was nice and pleasant, and the food and entertainment were way above average for this type of hotel.

If I were to do a package holiday, or visit the area again - I would most definitely use this hotel again.

Room Tip: The higher the better

Just home from a fantastic week with my husband and 8 year old grandson, lovely clean hotel and the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in on a holiday, 2 double beds in our room, rooms cleaned every day, safe available to rent, a very large restaurant with loads of choices, English sausages every day at breakfast, crepes made fresh daily, omelette made to order, overall the food was fantastic, very quiet location so if it's partying your after this is not the hotel for you, we went to the crazy kapers zoo which we loved, there is a lovely little restaurant on the beach beside the hotel and the food was excellent, there is only 4 or 5 wee shops so nowhere to spend money which isn't a bad thing I suppose lol, overall a great holiday in a lovely quiet location
