Playa Pesquero Review - The Rooms

Our room (as you can see in the photo below) was very spacious and had a good sized king bed, nice clean bathroom with bath and shower, a balcony (or veranda if you’re on the lower floor), air conditioning, TV, fridge, CD player, hairdryer, iron, ironing board – basically everything you need for your stay.

The rooms are cleaned every day and the fridges, which contain a large bottle of water, two cans of Cuban Coke and 2 of the smallest cans of beer in the world are restocked daily. We left tips and little gifts for the maid each day and we were rewarded with lovely towel sculptures on our bed, which seemed to get more elaborate as the week went on. The finale was two swan-like creatures with their necks pointing towards one another in a love heart shape, in a basket, with flowers and my sarong flowing out from behind them over the bed!

My only complaint about the room would be that the towels were a bit rough and often in their towel sculpturing frenzy the maids would forget to leave the right number of towels! The cushions and top bed cover could also have done with a clean, but the pillow cases and sheets were perfectly clean so I guess that was the main thing.

The accommodation was in two-storey building, scattered throughout the resort. Ours was around a 10-minute walk from the beach and 5 minutes from the pool and the main lobby and buffet restaurants. Many of the other buildings were closer than ours and a few were further away. There are golf carts going round the resort all the time, so if you don’t feel like walking you can always get a lift.
