enjoyed a lovely relaxing time at the papi - it was our first time at this hotel and we were pleasantly suprised - we arrived at 9pm just as dinner service was ending and were told by the very friendly staff to just leave our suitcases behind reception so we could get something to eat - we were encouraged to get all three courses and the drinks trolley came around so we could buy a drink.
Our room was on the 5th floor and although quite basic it was spotlessly clean - we stayed for a week and it was cleaned and the towels changed every single day of our stay. The whole hotel is spotless clean - the staff are very friendly - and the entertainment team try to encourage everyone to take part .
we stayed on half board and chose to have breakfast and then a meal in the afternoon around 3pm - you can eat anytime between 1 and 9pm - there was always something different on offer - fish - meat - salads - veg - chips - sausages - soup - fresh fruit - i enjoyed the lovely prawns one day and my husbands favourite was the liver.
there is lovely seating area by the pool with huge comfy sofas and thick cushions - we curled up there most days with our books - there is loads of sunbeds and parasols and no need to reserve them with a towel as there was plenty available at any time of the day - the pool was cold but it was the end of september.
There was entertainment every evening - parrot show - flamenco dancers - singers etc but we prefered to go over the road to the bars - our favourite was the black bull with Jordi in charge and coronation street and east enders showing - my husbands favourite was champions with beer at 1.50 euro a pint .
we got a very good deal flying ryanair and booking our own accommodation and for the price paid it was an excellent holiday .
I cant think of many negatives about the papi - you do have to clear your own plates onto the trolley after eating but i actually think this is a good idea as it frees up the tables quicker - the tea making machines in the dining rooms are not very efficient so we just had juice instead - we took a travel kettle and made our own tea in our room with tea bags and powdered milk brought from home.
A lot of the guests at the papi are of the older generation - i think they come on coach trips - there was not many younger people and very few children .
We will definetly go back to the papi next year
