We stayed at the hotel for a week at the end of May and our agent was First Choice. First of all the setting of the hotel is just beautiful, The panoramic views from the restaurant and terrace really do make meal times extra special.
Our room was adequate and the bathroom was well equipped, except for the hairdryer which looked about 30 years old, I recommend ladies to take their own. We had a view of the gardens from our room which were pretty.
All areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean with a super efficient maid service everyday.
We travelled with a young baby and some other reviewers have said this hotel isn't suitable for children, but our son had a great time and the staff were brilliant with him. He also loved the pool area, which has a childrens pool as well as a huge adults pool.
We stayed on an all inclusive basis. Our party thought the food was very good, there was plenty of choice for buffet breakfast and lunch and the evening meal was a waited service still with enough options to suit. The pasta dishes and carvery were always excellent. Unlike other reviewers we were very happy that alcoholic drinks were served from 1pm til 11pm, because this hopefully limits the amount people drink, I certainly do not want to go to a hotel where people start binge drinking at 10am, especially with a baby.
The only downsides were you were not allowed to have a soft drink by the pool, it had to be drunk in the bar area even though it was served in plastic beakers, the room tax added was not mentioned beforehand and a nightly charge was added for a cot for our baby which was not made explicit by First Choice beforehand.
We booked this hotel because we wanted a quality experience and overall I think we got it, with a bit of old fashioned charm thrown in.
