Ok if your on a budget

Good location for everything. Very close to the beach. Roof and terrace views are stunning. Food- good quality but could do with more choice of meat dishes for dinner. Also more kid friendly dishes. Another food station would be good as there is only one small one for the whole dining room. Drinks were good here too. Rooms- well , we had 3 rooms. Studio and 2 double rooms on floors 8 and 9. They need refurbished, rusty parts in kitchens and bathrooms, sewage smells, holes in doors etc. Walls were very thin. Beds were quite comfortable. The studio did not have proper beds, just sofa beds. The studios are only cleaned and fresh towels given twice a week which is ridiculous. Double rooms on floor 8 seemed to get towels daily. Beds were not made for you either daily. Bed linen changed once in our 5 day stay. They kindly leave a brush, mop and bucket for you in the studios. Good job we only stayed 4 nights. Not what expect when you have an all inclusive holiday. I think you could encounter a lot of street noise and bar noise on lower floors of the main building. The lift was very slow and there is only one serving the main building of the hotel. Balcony views for some rooms are terrible. Facing into lots of other rooms, facing brick walls etc but this didn't bother me as I don't sit out on my balcony anyway. Cleaning was average in rooms but good in other parts of the hotel Entertainment- No entertainment in the hotel at all and the resort has not got much to do either really apart from eat and drink. There is a rather expensive mini golf park and Aqualand waterpark. You have to pay for sun loungers and lockers inside the park and food prices are ridiculous! €36 for 2 people . The waterpark rides etc were average, nothing special. Pools- we only visited the roof top pool which was quite small and cold but adequate for a quick dip. They have a bar up there too which serves some snacks. Food was nice enough here if you didn't fancy going down to the dining room for lunch. Staff we found to be friendly enough. Beach- nice clean beach which is swept every night . Water is calm and shallow ,so great for families with small children. We stayed 4 nights from 28th September. Temperature was around 27degrees. Weather was sunny with some clouds. Rained one afternoon for 90 mins. To sum it up we had a good enough holiday but wouldn't stay here again unless it was room only and I was on a tight budget. Not a huge amount of English people in this resort either. Mostly German with some other nationalities.

The best thing about my stay was...

Location and roof top views
