We stayed at Hotel Pinija for a week break as a family, 2 adults and a toddler. The hotel location provided good facilities being on the beach and some on-site facilities (kayaks, mini golf, bikes) in addition to the indoor and outdoor pool and spa. It also provided a good base for exploring the region. Breakfast and dinner were wholesome, self service style. The events team entertained children with arts and crafts, swimming lessons and evening night time mini discos and movie nights.
The hotel is value for money. The only negative that we have is the condition and size of the room. It was portrayed as a 'Premium room' capable for 2+1. Being a regular traveller in my opinion there was nothing about the room (size and quality) that could be described as premium, I felt compelled to return to reception for an explanation. The fridge did not function, little things like the radiator was wonky and the shower leaked during our stay. Air con was also turned off by the hotel. We were requested by reception staff to return each morning to see if we could pay for an upgrade but were told they were fully booked. We tolerated the room for getting ready and sleeping only, we had anticipated using it more but chose to have our daughter's naps on the go. If you are content living out of a suitcase, happy with a bed in a room then its fine, if you expect just a little more space and comfort (what you'd expect with premium) than a typical economy room elsewhere then note this at booking.
