We have just returned from another week at this hotel and it was as good as the first. Rooms haven't changed (still a little dated), but more than adequate for what we needed. Again, we moved one bed from the living area into the bedroom so my mum could have a bit of privacy. Food was again ok, something for everyone but by no means a gourmet feast. We travelled with 2 children, so something for everyone is no mean feat! We paid to rent a kettle and have the fridge switched on which was only a couple of euros a day and worth it.
The pool area is fantastic, with enough sun beds for everyone. The boys had freedom of the resort again as it is really quite small and feels secure. This year there was the addition of a sandpit and 'astroturf' area, which was a huge hit with my 2. This is fenced off a few steps away from the pool, so in no way infringes on anyone relaxing by the pool.
We found the entertainment this year was a little more subdued during the day. We really enjoyed last years pool quizzes and the boys enjoyed the water polo that was held everyday. This year the one water polo match was adults and kids which is not suitable for my 2 at all. And what's happened to Aquaflash, the water aerobics that everyone could join in? We all really missed that! All in all, the daytime entertainment changes are what made me only rate this 4 and not 5 stars. Having said that, we loved chicken bingo and the boys really enjoyed the kids club and of course the nightly kids disco. Very relaxed and Paddy and Taylor were great.
We also missed the evening entertainment being held outside, but that could have been due to the inclement weather. I hope so, because we are definitely booking for next year and would like to see it outside if the weather is better! Being held inside was a bit claustrophobic and although of a high quality, didn't make me want to hang around as much.
The location of this hotel cannot be bettered in my opinion. A few minutes walk from the beach, the pine walk and loads of fabulous restaurants. Wonderful for a stroll after dinner or a nice lunch out. The spar shop just over the road is well priced and very well stocked and I found an amazing ensaimada shop just another block on!
So, once again, we are already looking to book next year as this is probably the most relaxing place we have ever stayed as a family. High praise for all the staff, but especially the entertainment team who were so friendly and so hard working.
But please.....more quizzes, bring back aquaflash and kids water polo!!
