Whether you love this hotel depends on what you are looking for. If you want family entertainment including in the evenings then it is great, there is lots going on during the day and in the evening. This also means that it can be quite noisy in the evenings while the shows are on. The positives are that the hotel is spotlessly clean, both the rooms and the hotel itself. There is a pool in the Cartago and another you can use in the hotel next door (it is more or less connected so feels like the second pool is part of the Cartage). I loved that the hotel had notices saying people could not reserve sunbeds and towels would be removed if the beds weren't being used - the downside was that while we were there people simply ignored this and put towels out while they went off to breakfast anyway. Breakfast was very good indeed - although the coffee was awful. The only real negative for me was that we chose the all inclusive option thinking that the kayaks on the beach were included but they weren't - although15 Euros for an hour wasn't much. Also you had to pay if you wanted beach towels and pay again if you wanted fresh ones. In terms of other things to do, there are a few restaurants around the beach area and somewhere to book excursions or book hire car. We particularly enjoyed a little tapas restaurant/cafe right on the beach. Puerto San Miguel bay is beautiful.

"Pluse's" Very good for family's not much for couples. Restaurant was very good and plenty to eat my 3yr old granddaughter loved making her own chocolate sandwich and 11yr old Grandson doing his own toasties. They also loved being able to get ice cream, pop corn, drinks when they wanted and chips nuggets burgers etc when Western Bar opened 12 noon. Pools and entertainment was very good and the entertainment team very good. Beach was very good although very packed at front and lots of people came and sat in front of you between sun beds and water. Drinks were ok and even help yourself to wine and beer on tap in restaurant. "Minuses" We used to sit at Hotel San Miguel pool as bigger. Having to get up at 7 to get a sun bed in a place you wanted and its not the Germans its us the British, one chap even used to queue to get into Cartago pool from 7.30 for it to open at 9, also having to pay 1.5 Euro for a sun bed cushion day and if went to beach it was 5 Euro per bed and per Umbrella could do with a voucher system for hotel guests as if like us 6 people 30 Euro per day. Had to pay 12 Euro for towels from reception of which 10 is returned also the plastic cups they use are useless so have to really buy to get a decent drink only 2 Euro's though. Think lastly "The Lifts " no need to explain as will become apparent when you arrive but seems they have been like it for at least 28 years! All in all quite a nice place and the kids don't see what us adults do so if a family you should enjoy. Last point if get a chance get a taxi transfer from airport and back as only about 40 Euro's my son booked with a company online as whole deal and cost him £154 and it didn't turn up for return at 10 pm to go to airport so had to pay 40 Euro's for trip taxi company was Viajes Martel taxis Have a great holiday.

Please people, don't listen to the haters, this hotel is just magic!! Yes it's a pain only having two lifts, but it's a 40 year old hotel so there isn't much they can do about it (and to be honest with the amount of food on offer, it's good to use the stairs to work it off ;O) ) The rooms are a fair size, basic but clean. every room has a decent view from the huge balconies due to the place being built up the side of the hill. The food in the main restaurant is quite frankly the best we've ever had in a 3* hotel, plenty of choice, constantly replenished, always at the correct temp and fresh. Personally, I didn't like the chinese (too greasy and bland for my liking) but the rest of the family loved it. The tapas was decidedly dire though, two bits of dry bread with an olive, slice of chorizo or a tomato isn't my idea of a staple Spanish institution, but it was busy. The snack bar in the pool bar was just that, chips and stuff, but the kids loved it. Beer, cocktails and fizz were plentiful everywhere, the wine was a bit ropey, but I ain't a expert so some may like it. Unless you're prepared to pay for 5*, you're not going to get a numbered sunbed. so there was the usual bun fight every morning with all the sad sods laying their towels out to claim them, but our party of 7 usually managed to get 4/5 together at most times during the day. The staff are brilliant, and always cheery. Considering the 12/15 hour days they work, apart from one incident with a smashed plate, we didn't see one sad face, and the odd tip in one of their jars made the service even better IMO The resort itself is quite small, and due to the fact most of the hotels are all inclusive, there are only a handful of other restaurants and shops, but personally I liked that fact everything was compact and within walking distance, with an excellent beach right on the doorstep too!!! We didn't bother with the excursions, considering how small the island is, £25 an adult min was a rip off, when the local buses were so cheap and reliable, we went to the Hippy Market one day, if we'd have fallen for the patter it would have cost us £150 but going ourselves was only £24!! Overall, it's a VERY good 3* all Inclusive, that will offer you the best value for your money, and in my opinion would be very hard to beat!!

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Cartago Hotel, we have 2 children 13 & 10 and we all loved it. The main restaurant is on the top floor with a stunning view of the bay, good selection of food and different themed nights, there was usually a chef on cooking fresh food while you wait, pizza, meat, fish whatever the night is. The Chinese is well worth a visit but you do have to book, the Tapas bar is ok but the Tapas is just a selection of french bread with different toppings. The all inclusive package was better than perfect for our family, the ice creams on offer where corneto, magnum, ice cream sandwich plus ice lollies and also help yourself to Mr Whippy and popcorn. The pool areas were busy but you could get a sun bed, if you want one down at the bottom pool and near the pool you will have to get up at silly o'clock however if you are not bothered about being close to the pool then you will be fine. Negatives for us were that the rooms are on the small size and the air conditioning was a pain as it only stays on for about 2 hours, you then have to press a reset button, we found ourselves getting up in the middle of the night 2 or 3 times to reset (not exaggerated). We had gone with another family who had an infant, they stuggled with the room as they also had a cot and a buggy, the lifts can be hard work as there are only 2, with the restaurant being at the top and the pool at the bottom there was as many people wanting to go up as down, we were both on the 6th floor and every time the lift got to us it was already full, we ended up carrying it more than once. The bay is great and the sea is really calm, if you take bread go waist deep the fish will take it from your hand! Entertainment at night was good, not to everyones taste but we thought Zoro was fantastic, we didn't get involved in much during the day so can't comment. In all we thought it was fantastic and are already looking at going back next year.
