We have been twice and our grandchildren have always enjoyed the experience. Not too sure about a 14yr old though?The age range of children when we were there tended to be between toddlers up to and around the age of about 11 or 12yrs of age. At these age groups they still tend to join in the activities offered by the hotel animation team. Your average 14 yr old these days may feel they have outgrown the activities on offer maybe? Evening bingo seems to generate a large amount of interest due to decent prize money on offer, but again not riveting for a 14yr old. Good indoor pool and an activities room downstairs with indoor 10pin bowling, table tennis and the usual assortment of electronic game machines.

"sea view rooms at the back of the hotel are good"
"Don't expect too much you pay for what you get"
"Book a car park space in advance to ensure a space. The hotel does well for functions and conferences, so spaces may become limited."
"Has “sea view” over the roofs of a few other buildings. Rooms overlooking the Aztec outdoor area could suffer late night disturbance."
"First floor rooms are cooler, away from main entrance are quieter."
