Thinking about switching next week’s San An accommodation from a room at Hotel Pacific to the Central City Playasol apartments as it’s cheaper, bigger and there’s a little kitchen. Anyone know anything about them at all?
a mate did a week there two years ago. he said it was basic but functional. great central location

The problem is not only the adults only.
The offer in restaurants, bars and shop in so poor in Portinatx, the quality is so bad in 90% of the place.
If you look at the Chiringuito (nice place good cocktails and nice music), Los Enamorados , Restaurante El Puerto, Shamarkanda or Cala Xucla, they are all working very well.
Because they are all doing quality, at the right price for the place.
But the others ...

Ahah the connoisseur...great paella at Pinos...
Vicente and Teresa are lovely people.
But hey... Don't you think the place needs a refurbishment??

Been there a number of times myself mate and totally agree. Bart and the family are great. Only good memories of there. One year when I wasnt even staying there, I got off the Garlands boat in a bit of a state and decided a drink in the Sol Bahia bar was the way to carry on this night. Anyway I ended up there with no flip flops, so after a few barefooted drinks there , Bart lent me his (far too big) flip flops which I ended up in for the rest of the night in Itaca! Funny days. Thanks for the pics.
Yes!! That's brilliant mate, great story!

I can definitely imagine Bartolo doing something like that. Total gent of a bloke.

Very generous with the alcohol measures as well, much to the demise of my missus who is an absolute lightweight :D

Playasol seem to be taking over too, they have hotels everywhere
Two of their 2-star hotels, Piscis Park in San An and La Noria in P.D.B., will become 4-stars.
No more "cheap tourism" at Piscis Park...

The director reckons if the hoteliers in the centre of the town continue investing in quality the drunk tourism of the West End won't have any future. "The low quality mass tourism of San Antonio is slowly diluting", he says.

No more tourism at Piscis Park :lol: who in their right mind is going to pay 4 star prices in the middle of san an town next to west end and the worst beach on the island?

The thing is, Piscis Park has never been that cheap. You could always get nicer hotels in San An for a cheaper. Maybe it pulled it off through notoriety alone?

Think it's been rebranded to Hotel Piscis or similar this summer. Does look better from the outside.

For years it was one of the cheapest in san an, that’s one of the reasons it ended up in the state it was in.

Hostals aside, Piscis has always been around the cheapest for a week mark. I think 4 star renovation is a bit ambitious tbh.

Indeed, even if they spent a fortune making it truely upmarket, hired loads of security to keep the yobs out, and turned away large group bookings etc would anyone still want to stay there?

Beach is awful, fake sand and despite the best efforts of the cleaning team often last nights litter. Pool area is effectively a balcony overlooking a high traffic street.

I'm all for progress and a well run, good value, safe 3star hotel would be most welcome, but they are deluded if they think upmarket guests will flock to it, just going to lead to empty beds and more empty bars and restaurants.
