ok, so having read most of the reviews on here I thought should be good, i wasn't prepared for how great it was, having paid so little for the holiday! we travelled as 4 adult friends.
upon arrival at about 10:20pm - having made them aware we would be late, the lovely girl at reception asked if we wanted our cases minded before heading to our allocated apartment, so we could get food from the snack bar which opened till 10:30, we declined and the security guard took us round to the apartment, it's literally a 3 min walk tops from the back of hotel. We got to our apartment block, and ok the lift broke, so we had to lug cases up to the 4th floor (I'd asked for high floor) but as if i wasnt breathless enough when i got to the top of the stairs, i was when i saw the apartment!! it was very big, spacious, 2 good sized rooms, huge bathroom, clean, good living room and balcony (with washing machine) - however it was the wee spiral staircase he took us up to our own private roof terrace, with BBQ and outdoor shower just blew me away!! even at night, but at day it was even better, it was a complete suntrap, we used it one day, but most other days we spent at hotel or off about salou / barcelona!
the hotel was amazing, spotlessly clean, entertainment such a laugh, from bingo, kareoke, quizes, shows at nite and games (and thats just the adult stuff I'm talking about), whilst there were some kids in the hotel, the kids club had them off doing things 90% of time, so the big patio seated area was always quiet, the rooftop terrace for adults only is amazing, however weather was tad windy and we there so we never really used it!
food wise, it's all inclusive and i know one or two folk have said food was cold, I never found it that cold, and there were 2 microwaves if you wanted anything heated, there was always plenty of choice, so much so I never even got to the carvery until our last nite and it was lovely also! there is something for everyone food wise, the snack bar at pool is great also, and good for the kids, always plenty of kids trecking about with ice creams (free) also!
I'm trying to think of all the other things we loved about this holiday, alot was helped by the people we met (you know who you are) everyone is soooo friendly, really nice to see the manager walking around and talking to people, we never experienced the pools as they were cold (it was only start of season) but again they kept them spotlessly clean, always people around!
Will deffo return to this hotel :)
