Christmas holiday

Stayed for 2 weeks over Xmas. The hotel is huge and was almost full which resulted in a great atmosphere with surprisingly few queues at the bars etc. The hotel has 2 pools, one is quiet, the other lively and depending on the wind, one of them tends to be sheltered. The "lively" pool was heated to about 27 degrees while we were there - very pleasant. Plenty of sunbeds although they get reserved quickly. Also has a park with swings and slide for the children. The staff are genuinely friendly. A special mention for the animation team who work morning till night on a wide range of activities. Food in the restaurants is more than adequate, good choice and something for most people if not gastronomic. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the beach down some steps (or free shuttle bus if you prefer). No aircon in the rooms which wasn't a problem in December but perhaps uncomfortable in the hotter months. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay and would definitely return.

Never again

Maid serve was poor they came in out room every other day if we were lucky. Food was ok but same old every day ended up eating out knowing it was all inclusive. Beds were terrible especially the sofa bed the mattress was dirty and had holes in it and the mattress on top off the original mattress has staines and holes in it. There was an issue with one of the guest he had been there 16 days there were so many complaints about his taking pictures of children and other things but the hotel didn't do anything about it until we all got together as he was very creepy and we made a complaint to hotel they ended up calling the police due to his history and he was arrested for inappropriate images on his electronic device's. His company had cancelled all his flights and accommodation as they felt they didn't want that behaviour on their hands. So for that I felt it wasn't a safe place for children due to a member of staff that was also an interpretator said it's not nothing to do with the hotel when there has been many complaints about this guest to reception. Which made a lot of guest feel the hotel was a let down knowing it's a family hotel. The entertainment staff are brilliant they work so hard in the heat and never moan. They were all so friendly as well. Very good with all the family's as well. Definitely needs aircon in the rooms and a good refurbishment as it looks a bit shabby. All inclusive finishes at 11pm which I found very strange I have done all inclusive once before many years ago and it was on for longer than 11pm. To be honest never again for me and my family but I'm sure others might like it better than we did. L
