A GREAT HOLIDAY, FRIENDLY STAFF & GREAT FOOD

I suppose like many others, I simply do not understand what people find to whinge about regarding Broncemar Beach. Me and my family have just returned from a 2 week 'all-inclusive' stay and we can honestly say that we have had a fabulous holiday, thanks to the wonderful Spanish staff, animation team and lovely people we have met. We paid for 3 star and actually I feel we received 4/5 star service especially concerning the food and the staff. What few negatives I do have centre around the very, very few impolite, greedy people (sad to say mainly Brits) who pile their plates high with food they don't want, shout in yobbish English at the hard-working, friendly staff and then no doubt come on here and complain that there's only one type of chips and not enough burgers on the menu, Here are my thoughts: Reception/Check-In. A lovely group of ladies couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. They all speak perfect English, but if like me, you like to try a little Spanish they are warm and kind. Matai (I hope this is the correct spelling) is a charming lady who even organised my wife's Birthday party in the dining room for me. Susanah is a Polish lady who speaks English, Spanish and German and again, could not be more helpful. Yes there is a charge for fans, most rooms don't have air con and the wi-fi is quite expensive, but surely you would know this when you book and it is not the staff's fault is it? Rooms. Quite basic but clean. In 14 days we had clean towels nearly every day and the room was cleaned every other day. The TV is 'slot-machine' but we don't go on hols to watch it anyway. We quite liked the balcony set-up as it gave us chance to meet our neighbours who were all very pleasant. One cockroach spotted in 14 days... and let's not forget, it is sub-tropical her so its their environment. Pool Area. Yes you do have to get up early to claim your sunbed but that wasn't an issue for me as I swim early every morning anyway. Its not the hotel's fault, but ours and if you ask Ossiedes the life-guard, he will find you a bed and a place if you've got up late. The pool side is very slippy so you have to warn the kids about running and there are a few cracked tiles, but nothing to moan or be worried about. Actually, when we were there, maintenance guys were painting etc so maybe the place is getting a bit of a face-lift? I actually loved the party dance at 2 every afternoon when the whole (or at least most) of the people in the pool got up and danced with Jessie and Yourie... just great x Food. In a word. WOW! Look, this is only my opinion, if you and your kids only like to eat Western/English food then I wouldn't bother going all inclusive and then feeling bad about the fantastic array of foods on offer here. Just eat what you like at one of the nearby restaurants and just stay 'B&B' at Broncemar because surely no one could find fault with the breakfasts? (except maybe the toasters which remind me of my Army days and are rubbish) We honestly couldn't fault the food. Rices cooked in many different ways which my wife loved, a great and varied mixture of salads, fish dishes that would grace any 5* restaurant in the UK and a lovely selection of desserts. I have stayed in 5 star hotels that didn't provide such a great selection. If you want to stay informal, the pool bar has hot dogs/burgers and toasties on almost all day and every day at 12.30 a different selection (pizzas, kebabs etc). Mind you, if you go at 12.30 its like feeding time at the zoo so wait 15 minutes or so until it calms down would be my tip. But the buffet is first class and the staff.... well to say helpful would be doing them an injustice. Wonderful, kind and patient people who have to put up with a very, very small minority of folks piling food onto their plates that they are never going to eat, then spilling it all over the tables and floor and then walking away without even bothering to clear or tidy their tables up (I know its waiter service but really?). Unbelievable, and yet the waiters and chefs keep smiling and doing their jobs., They are an inspiration to me having my own restaurants and I would gladly work alongside any of them. Yes, at peak times you may have to wait 3 or 4 mins for a table, but hey... we're on holiday :) As a post script about the restaurant, on the first night my wife asked for some hot chillis for her food as she comes from Asia, and incredibly, every night after that the staff brought us her favourite sauce without ever once being asked. That's great service in a place that I would guess is feeding 1500-2000 people a day. Entertainment/Animation. The team (that I presume are from the hotel) quite simply made my two bairns' holiday. On a limited budget, working six and a half days a week they managed to put on shows, dancing, sports and activities that my kids will never forget. They are all very warm and lovely people. Sure it is not Las Vegas quality and yes it can be a little repetitive for us adults and of course, not everyone wants to sit and play bingo every night... but you do have a choice. There is plenty of other entertainment in the resort of Caleta some of which is very good. I just think that because certain people have paid 'all inclusive' they won't go to some of the other bars/restaurants because they have to pay for their drinks.. Personally I think Micky, Youri and the wonderful Jessie did a great job on very limited resources. Staff. No words really. Brilliant, lovely people who made every effort to make my family's holiday special. From the cleaning ladies to the kitchen porters to the waiters and reception staff I cannot find fault. I have a little bit of Spanish and they helped me with new words and phrases. In two weeks the only negative I could find was about the young lady who brought out the food at 12.30 to the pool bar. She was a little severe I admit. However, she had a trolley full of hot food and honestly no sooner had she taken a tray of boiling hot chips off the trolley there were people pushing to get in. Had it been me I would have asked them to please wait, but she did at one point get a bit angry (which BTW I empathise with). Maybe the restaurant manager Senor Heime may think of closing off the area for 5-10 minutes to allow her to set up without being jostled when she is only trying to do her job? But Rossandro, Manuel, Jonathan, Heime, Herrardo, Nowsett, Matai, Suzanah, Ruben, Caballeros e Senoras.. muchas gracias. Encantado de conocerte <3 Finally regarding the 'staff', there is a professional photographer at the hotel named Allessandro and at first you may be worried about who is this guy taking photos of my kids? BUT, don't be concerned. He is a very talented photographer who works with his partner and you can buy the photos at the end of your holiday. Of course, it is not cheap, but (in my opinion only) it is worth it, and there is no hard sell... if you don't want the photos that's fine. Guests. I have saved the best until last. Despite what I have written earlier, the best thing about Broncemar is the wonderful mixture of lovely people that you can meet. The resort caters for Brits, Irish, Italians, Spanish, Germans, French, Dutch, Belgians... a very eclectic and interesting group. My family met some amazing people. Yes there is a v v v small minority of those that think because they have paid 'all inclusive' they are there to be served at every beck and call. But the vast majority of people we met were wonderful and a real pleasure to have met. So to summarise, 2/3 star rooms, 3 star pool etc, 5 star food, 4/5 star children's entertainment and 5 star plus for the staff. Please feel free to message me if you would like any clarification on any points. Thank you for reading.

Stayed here for 2 weeks it is was it is it was much cheaper than the other apartments as it's very basic and you have to pay for all the little extras. It was very clean and had everything you need after all you don't go on holiday to sit in your apartment! Location is great we went self catering so can't comment on the food but people I spoke to said it was fine. We had a first floor apartment by the pool (room 171) it had a large private balcony with sun loungers and table and chairs. There was the usual fight for beds around the pool which was a bit ridiculous as we witnessed people putting towels on beds from 3am ( I was sat on balcony as I couldn't sleep) overall we had a great time and found the place good value for money

This was out third time staying at these apartments over the past few years. We booked again this year for the Easter holidays. Its a very large village type bungalow (with upstairs) complex. We like that the apartments are in a convenient location for beach, restaurants and bars. It's a very small resort anyway so you would be near everything no matter where you stayed. We asked for an upstairs apartment and got one. Our balcony was huge and sunny with two sunbeds but it was looking onto a wall! It was very quiet and private though and you could sit there all day in the sunshine and laze or read in peace.The pool areas are quite packed and a bit shabby as is the whole outside of the complex. The bungalows nearest the road are painted and look the best. We stayed here self catering and the kitchen was good enough to rustle up a meal if you wanted to. Don't know what the food in the all - inclusive was like so can't comment. There is a bar like a traditional English or Irish bar which is handy to have on-site. There's a supermarket for your water etc.

Stayed last 2 weeks in june Hotel and location excellent could foresee problems when full , main problem was scally over weight parents and children acting as if it was the end of the world where eating and drinking was concerned, kids running riot all night , parents not giving a damm , Food was plentiful and full of choice ,good old British tourists putting towels out before going to bed SO SAD . All staff and maids worked very hard , be polite to them and they will be to you , good morning and thank you is not very hard to say . Overall cheap holiday but a Hotel can only be as good as the people that stay there ,would not be returning, embarrassed to be a Broncemar guest .
