review by
Mike Haberfelner

Two couples make a vacation at a seaside hotel to reignite their romances with neglebible success, plus a couple of blinddaters notice they're terribly mismatched despite the best of their efforts - and then a stripper (Lina Romay) stops by the place as well, and makes it a point to wear very little to wherever she goes ... and soon she has captured the interest of the 3 males as well as the gardener, and it all leads to a big gangbang. This gets the females jealous, and so they want to confront the stripper - but she tells them a tearjerking story about her having been sexually abused from an early age and now knowing no other way to deal with people than to have sex with them. This touches the three women ... and they have sex with her.

Next day at breakfast, none of the three couples are ready to talk to their respective others - but the stripper crawls under each table to give everyone a bit of satisfaction, and soon they are all up in their rooms again making love to their respective others - and our heroine can make an escape as her work here is done ...


Certainly not one of the more memorable films of Jess Franco, El Hotel de los Ligues, however silly in plot it might be, is still fun at least because it doesn't take itself seriously for a second and is very well aware that it's nothing but softcore porn to be quickly consumed and forgotten - and for exactly this reason, Franco has included genre elements in the movie one wouldn't normally expect, like a silly song-and-dance number, an overly dramatic (and totally over-the-top) monologue by Lina Romay about her nymphomania, and the like. True, Franco has made much more memorable and (intentionally) funnier movies, even of the softcore variety - but this one's at least good for a giggle.
