After a very pleasant 6 hour flight we took a pre-booked taxi to the hotel, but we wasted our money really as it took all of 3 minutes to get there & due to the 45 minute wait for our luggage at the airport (don't know why), the coach got there before us!! It took about 15 minutes for us...

Mr.Medina gave us everything he asked for and also an upgrade to a junior suite which was lovely separate lounge, bedroom,...

Flights to and from Manchester were appalling with absolutely no leg room and no entertainment. Upon arrival at this quaint little airport we had quite a delay due to a computer problem but were soon at the hotel and very quickly checked in by firendly, efficient reception staff. We stayed in room 147 which was perfect: ground floor, quiet, very...

This is a large hotel but the advantage of this was it never felt packed or crowded. The room was nice, comfortable, large and clean(1221) and within a couple of minutes walk to the main restaurant,pool and beach. The pool area can get a bit noisy and loud but the beach is peaceful, there was never a problem in getting...

Stayed here for a week in June with the family. Hotel is great and the food was fantastic. There are two large pools and the beach goes on forever. There is also a gym and fitness centre. We will be going back again!

Beautiful hotel, lovely beach and immaculately clean. I was not keen on the cats wandering into the restaurants but they didn't seem to cause any problems. There was plenty of choice in the buffet restaurants and the food was good. The staff are very hard working and friendly and I could not fault the entertainment team. The hotel is only...

We'd never been here before and booked to get some winter sun. Highly rated, we expected a high standard. Well, I have to say that although the hotel is splendid, for those thinking of a quiet holiday, it's huge! That doesn't take away anything from it; we loved our time there and found the staff amazing and so very dedicated....

Amazing hotel!! It's like a mini city with everything you need inside its huge vicinity. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful at all times, and there are a lot of them!! The hotel has everything from quiet bars, to busier bars to karaoke bars to night club! The entertainment team put on a great show almost every night...
