We arrived to a warm reception and booked in with no problems. We went straight to the restaurant to get something to eat.
On returning to the two rooms we realised that we didn’t have enough beds! We spoke to reception and they sorted it out within 20 minutes.
The cockup was due to the company we booked through, Sunmaster. they had also promised late checkout and the all-inclusive to last until we left on the last day. None of this had been arranged as promised by Sunmaster
Anyway I digress.
We stayed in room 407A on the fourth floor and next to the main road. It was a noisy road so ask for a room on the other side if you’re bothered by the noise. Road sweepers started between 03:00 and 04:00.
The room was furnished in the usual Spanish style. One of the older ones not the recently refurbished. It was a bit tired looking but clean and well maintained.
We had a problem one afternoon with the bath. My wife had just bathed the grandkids and let the water out and it flooded the bathroom. A quick call to reception and it was all sorted within 30 minutes. Drain unblocked and floor moped. They also replaced the towels we had thrown on the floor to stop the water coming out of the bathroom.
We had booked all inclusive and had no problems choosing something to eat. Each meal had a good choice.
It sometimes took a while to get served with drinks but they were big measures!
Breakfast had continental and the Spanish bacon and eggs. Small pancakes, fried potatoes, Yoghurt and fruit. Omelettes where cooked to order and the grandkids especially enjoyed the selection of pastries, pudding with breakfast!
Lunch had pizza, burger, nuggets etc. pasta and soup, a good selection of salad.
Dinner comprised of salad bar, soup (cold and hot), fish and choice of meats. Pasta and a choice of potatoes (chips, boiled and the salted new pots). A roast was available most days as well.
All the staff in the restaurant and reception where helpful and friendly.
The pool bar was a different case altogether. At the start of the holiday we had the misfortune to be waiting in a queue to be served snacks. Still in the queue the guy cooking just said “now closed, no more” he was adamant that as it was 13:00Hrs he would not serve us even though we were waiting in the queue. I went to reception and complained. They rang the pool bar and told him to serve us. He did, with under cooked chicken nuggets, Raw in the middle, these where for my two year old granddaughter. Needless to say we didn’t use it again.
Watch out for the pool bar witch, you will know if you come across her!
Alex who served on the pool bar (drinks) was really nice especially with the kids.
They have a children’s pool for small kids but it’s not very big so space is at a premium if there is a lot of little ones. The children’s pool and the two big ones are not heated and when we went in April they were cold, but after roasting in the sun it was a welcome way to cool down.
The children’s club during the day was almost none existent. The play area is a dart board and ping pong table under the children’s pool.
The mini disco at night was the highlight for the grandkids (all under six). With the chu chua song going down a treat. The rest of the entertainment was pretty average. If you’re looking for something at night then you would need to go out and about.
The hotel was handy for the buses as they stopped outside. The bus company is Titsa. http://www.titsa.com
The hotel is not far from the beach but it is up hill coming back. Along the beach you will find the tourist information.
I caught the bus into Los Cristianos and then walked back along the front witch took me about an hour and a half. If you’re just after a stroll with a beer or two along the way allow two to three hours.
