The Perla Marina is a clean,small and friendly hotel.The staff are incredibly friendly and most speak English,Pablo is especially good with the children.The snack bar at lunchtime is excellant,try the club sandwich or Perla Marina salad,lovely.
Mealtimes - The restaurant is spacious but deathly quiet particually in the evenings.Breakfast is o.k but not too warm,usual selection of cereals,cold meats,sausage,beans,eggs etc.Get your drinks first and place them on your table so it\'s kind of reserved.The evening meals were appalling with no choice for children [or adults] unless you like paella,unidentified meat in sauce,salad and fish complete with heads.
Rooms - Basic,clean,maid comes every day to make beds and push a mop around.Not too much wardrobe/storage space.Well worth paying supplement for sea view,alternative is a balconyless view of a busy road and a building site.
Pool area - Nice pool area certainly no dawn rush ...
for sunbeds,there was still some left at ten thirty - eleven a.m.The pool could get crowded with lilo\'s etc at times.Don\'t get sunbeds in the corner as you get splashed by people jumping in the pool.Read More
Beaches - The beach outside the hotel is the Playasol and is very shingly with no sunbeds,people take their own mats and umbrellas.Two minutes away is the Playa Torrecilla,much nicer,very sandy,sunbeds to hire along with pedloes but beware the beach slopes steeply in the sea,ten yards and your out of your depth.
Hotel entertainment - Poor,Carlos and his keyboard appears twice a week and theres flamenco once a week but once you\'ve seen one you\'ve seen them all.Nothing for children though,other than this the hotel is quiet in the evenings.
Summing up - I would recomend the Perla Marina to anyone and if they could only sort out the abysmall evening meals then it would make the whole complete.
