Well we are here and it is fabulous, we arrived on Saturday night to a huge storm and torrential rain, Sunday was overcast and a tad chilly unless the sun peeked out and then in the evening we had more heavy (really heavy) rain but yesterday evening was cool and clear - today has been really hot def in the mid 20's and I even went for a dip in the outdoor pool and it wasn't too cold but then I like cold water.
We have so far eaten at both buffet restaurants and the choice is brill, we went to the Italian yesterday and have the Greek booked tonight, they are just starting to open up more outdoor bars and restaurants as the weather improves, I hope the adults pool bar and outdoor night club will open in the next couple of days but they are working on the roof as the rain damaged it. Piers both have sun loungers on them but no parasols as of yet.
The hotel is busy but as there are so many areas there is plenty of space. I walked out to the reception from the main hotel block and it would only take a couple of minutes at most for the slowest walker - I really don't think any of the rooms are badly located but for me I do love being in the main building. Inci managed to secure us a room with a view out to sea and over the main pool we are in the building closest to the building work but not overlooking it and other than very occasional noise I barely notice it we have spent a fair bit of time on the balcony and are still deciding whether to do the upgrade as our standard room is so good!
erm some of the other questions I was asked to check, room safes will take a netbook but a laptop larger than 12 inches prob won't fit in.
I haven't found the specific family blocks in the gardens but as a general tip if you are in the bungalows ask to be near the relax pool as this will put you in a good central position. oh and for those out near reception there is a bar there as well so you don't have to come to the lobby if you want a drink.
Erm,what else...........walking down the beach is not restricted at this time. The cakes in the patisserie are too tempting and the red and white wine is very quaffable!
Finally Ben says to say the gym is very good he ran 6 miles and then went and had three plates of food at the adults only restaurant ;O)
feel free to ask questions, I will try to get on a bit more regularly!
oh I will check the day pass but it might take a day of two, bear with me :O)
