Just returned from a week's stay at the XQ El Palacete and a most enjoyable stay it was too, from the champagne offered on arrival to the hassle free check out on departure we had an excellent, relaxing week's holiday and I can thoroughly recommend it. Our room (# 8) was a good size, had a nice bathroom and balcony which offered excellent views out to sea and along the beach. The food both at breakfast (where prosecco was also an option!?) and at dinner was excellent and plentiful. The pool is a good size although I was often the only person using it, and there are plenty of sunbeds which were of good quality.
The staff as a whole were friendly, helpful, clearly focused on ensuring that you had an enjoyable stay with them and to pick any one person out in particular would be unfair on those we did not have the occasion to meet. My overall impression of the hotel was one of gently understated luxury in a very relaxed environment, if you are looking for exercise classes or upbeat activities you might be disappointed, we were not and consequently were more than satisfied with our stay.More
