All in all, it's a cheap family holiday that isn't really that bad, it's like a late 1970's hotel that caters for other countries as well as the English.

Hotel tip: Take an empty water bottle with you down to breakfast and fill it up, saving you having to buy water for the day.

Check-in was very efficient, and the foyer was clean and bright.
I got room 653 on the top floor and the views of Lloret were amazing. The hotel is on top of a hill and I could see clearly to both Lloret and Fenals beaches and almost 360 degrees round the resort.
I had always heard too many bad things about this hotel to even consider it in the past, but had been told by my friends in Lloret that it had improved.
There is nothing drastically wrong with this hotel, and as I got a very cheap deal I would not complain too much about it. It is a 3* Spanish hotel that provides the basics. The food is edible and plenty. There is nice looking pool area surrounded by grass. They have entertainment in their “pub” which is just like all the other hotel bars in the area – lots of tables and chairs and you are not encouraged to stand at the bar.
This hotel is geared to other nationalities, and does not really cater for British guests.
Breakfast is geared towards the continentals, with the only hot items being bacon, sausages/frankfurters and beans. Sometimes they had chicken nuggets or ham fritters ie leftovers
Because the other guests (mainly Spanish and French) seemed to rush to the restaurant as soon as it opened, the food on display if you went later tended to be cold or look unappetising. There were plenty of options at all meals. You could eat something pleasant, but you just had to be aware.
The only British TV was Euronews.
The hotel is at the top of a hill so when you go out everywhere is downwards.
When you come home of course………………
Would I go back; because any hotel in Lloret is just a base for me then if I got the same sort of deal I got this time then yes.
Would I stay there for my annual holiday then no.

we arrived at 10.00am it was very hot, we were given our room number but not able to go in it til 1pm. so we undone the suitcases and the children went in the pool. the pool area was very nice, no lilos or balls were allowed in the pool, which made it nice for swimming and didn't bother our children. the life guard was very strick which is a good thing. the pool area is locked until 10am which means that there is no getting up early for a sun bed and there are plenty of them.
our room was far too small. 4 beds were pushed together, you couldn't walk around them you had to walk over them! our room was on the 2nd floor over looking the road. it was cleaned every day.it was very noisey at night. we were next to the lift which rang a bell every time it stopped. the police were called due to arguing in the corridors.
the food was horrible, it was always cold and looked like left overs from the day befor(pork chops in bread crumbs! new potatoes in cheese). there were always lots of people in the restaurant, it was chaos. for fresh cooked pork or chicken you had to wait then some one would always come and push in! we couldn't find a microwave. other reports are right about raw eggs but the chef will flip them if you ask. the snack bar was horrid, cold burgers hot dogs and pizza.we ate out a few times.the drinks are very watered down and all inc are treated as 2nd class. entertainers worked hard but it was dragged out. the victory pub is good. we had a good holiday but would not go back to the samba.

Our holiday at the Samba was a great break and it shows dont believe everything you read!

The standards of hygiene were apalling! The room stank like it was growing mushrooms! The paint was flaking off every surface & to top it all there was a 5 inch round punch hole in the hotel room door where someone had tried to punch their way in! Whilst we were down at reception 1 gentleman was reporting items being stolen from his room whilst another man was complaining about the state of his room! The staff were uninterested and advised him to contact his holiday rep!!
FOOD!! I'm not actually sure that that is an apt description for what they put out! Raw hotdogs and burgers at the pool bar & lovely see through raw "fried" eggs for breakfast with bacon you could glue stuff together with!
The entertainment was purely Spanish and so were the rest of the patrons grumpy Spanish pensioners who have no manners!
Would I vist this hotel again....? Yes if someone had a gun to my head other than this I'd rather sleep on the beach!
