Well what can I say about this attempt at a over rated 4 star hotel, it's more like a very average 3 star. This hotel is just a three-story travel lodge, nothing more so donít get your hopes up. I have stayed in 3,4 and 5 star hotels around the world and have seen better 3 stars. First of all do not get fooled by the website, or the literature in it, it is very misleading and nothing like what you see. When we booked with our tour operator I asked for a double, on the print out it said a twin, I asked the girl saying we want a double, she assured me this is how the confirmation is printed and we would get our large double room with a large balcony, I also insisted we wanted a late check out time as our flight was 10.30 pm, hence we did not want to leave our room at 12.00 noon and be hanging around for 8 hours until our taxi arrived, again we were told no problem just ask for this on arrival at the hotel. On the night of arrival we were taken to our room, shock a very small pokey twin room my, girl friend's heart sank, I was not going to let this go. So I explained what we had paid for £1600 sterling and this was not right, the receptionist very moody almost had a go at me and told me this is the only room they had, I kept cool and after insisting she found my double, again a very small room and tiny balcony, anyhow we were tired and decided to take this and resume our chat in the morning. Next morning I went down to try and get the room we wanted they would not budge an inch, very rude and unhelpful. OK, the case of the late check out, I asked for our late check out as promised by our travel agent, what a surprise they would not give us that either, so instead of the 9 day holiday we booked we ended up 8 days. The final day we were out of our room by 12 noon, so a day wasted hanging round the hotel lobby, no place to have a nice shower or rest before our flight, at 2.30pm they decided to give us a room, a bit late as the day had gone and all the excursions we wanted to go on had left. Thanks travel agent for letting us down. Ok the hotel, The pool was murky every morning we went down for a sun bed they were all gone people would go down at 5-6 am and grab all the sun beds, great. The beach, once you swam out 50 odd metres, it was nice but the beach was covered in seaweed and very rocky and you end up stubbing toes and scraping knees. As far as the sports and leisure facilities are concerned, forget it. A sand covered tennis court and a cowboy water sport chap who I never saw, sitting under a make-shift lean to. The sauna, solarium, Jacuzzi and steam room all was at an extra charge. Breakfast, if you like stale bread, cold coffee and grumpy staff, and you had to pay for fresh orange juice, fine. Go for it if you like that kind of thing, there was no coffee shop open in the day to grab a snack just the pool side one which was hot and humid and the food looked a few days old. I had a salad which was not good, the evening buffet, well same again - not great. It's just basically horrible stale greasy fry up a glorified greasy spoon. A four star hotel should not allow guests bare footed and wearing only swimming trunks and bikinis with feet on the tables into the foyer. The manicure room was filthy and dirty and the staff were not well presented at all, the outside pool bathrooms were smelly and dirty with about a centimetre of urine covering the floor were the toilets had leaked, bins overflowing. Our room was Hoovered once in 8 days, we had to ask for clean towels, the linen would not have been changed unless we stripped our bed and put it by the door, our pillows were not once changed in the nine days, the air-conditioning was very noisy and not working well so nights were very hot, water was spraying out of the air conditioning in the foyer, I could go on. Oh well thatís my review of the Pioneer Beach Hotel. You decide, I just advise you not to take a chance and stay there.

Good hotel no complaints at all, the staff are very helpful, good selection of food well presented, hotel is kept to a very high standard throughout. Gardens well maintained plenty of sun loungers, poolside bar with a well presented outside area for eating, overall good value for money, we have stayed at the Pioneer Beach hotel for two holidays and would certainly use it again.
