Advantages Fantastic hotel.
Disadvantages They made me go home !!
My holiday was booked through First Choice Holidays and for my husband, myself and our 12 year old son for a weeks half board stay with unlimited access to the park, the cost, including flights and transfers was £1200.
This review is about my holiday at the El Paso Hotel, Port Aventura, Spain in October 2008.
We all had a wonderful time, I won't go into the park details as I have already written a review on that aspect of Port Aventura - this review is purely about our stay in the hotel.
Before I go any further, let me explain about Halloween at Port Aventura.
Every October and November Port Aventura goes into Halloween mode, and boy - they don't do it by half.
If you have ever been to Disneyland at Halloween - Port Aventura do it five times better!!
When we pulled up at the hotel the Halloween theme was very much in evidence - cobwebs, huge spiders and skeletons were all around the outside of the hotel and even the statue of Wood Woodpecker had been transformed into a Vampire edition of himself.
The hotel is based on a Mexican theme and has terracotta roof tiles, it is like a two-storey haciendas with timber-framed balconies.
We were shown into the large and airy reception with plenty of brightly coloured sofas (many of which were occupied by ghouls, skeletons and the like)
There was a large reception desk and the receptionist was very friendly and spoke good English. She explained all the details about our park tickets, meal times, express tickets etc and spent a long time in discussion with my son about the merits of the various rides.
The El Paso has 501 rooms, which include standard rooms, rooms designed for the disabled and some theme-based rooms for Halloween - more about that later!! The rooms each accommodate a maximum of 4 people.
There was a free safe, a telephone, air conditioning -(both hot and cold) and a TV with several channels.The bathroom was large and fitted with a toilet, sink and vanity unit, a bath and shower and a hair
A nice touch was the toiletries that were left for us in the bathroom - one set for adults and one for children in a lovely Port Aventura pouch.
