We were on the 11th floor with spectacular views over the sea and bay. Our room was a reasonable size with an old fashioned television which showed Sky News. We had to pay 15 Euros for the week to pay for the safe as this was not included in the all inclusive package. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was quite big and the shower was powerful with no shortage of hot water Soap, shower gel ,shampoo and a hair drier were supplied. Our room was cleaned every day with fresh towels. We encountered no problems with the lifts,only a longer wait occasionally in the mornings. The reception staff were first rate and we could not fault them. The rest of the staff we encountered were all friendly and efficient. Breakfast was great with a wide choice. Lunch was good but perhaps the addition of some cold meats to go with the salads would have been nice. The evening meal varied and we would all round describe it as very average. The food apart from the breakfast was not hot and sometimes it was barely lukewarm and this was probably our major criticism of the hotel itself. Beer,wine soft drinks and water were available on tap at several drinks stations throughout the hotel.The poolside bar during the day was also widely used and good.The piano bar in the evening was a pleasant place to mix with other guests . The pianist who played 6 days a week It became a little boring as it seemed the same every night. The cabaret was average to poor and it did not help because of the low stage and pillars that made it very difficult to see the acts fully, unless you were seated at the front. If you wanted to go out at night there was nowhere to go. The resort had no bars and if you wanted a walk you could not go far, probably about 800 metres which to us was a drawback. There was a daily courtesy shuttle bus service to Puerto Mogan that only operated once a day which was insufficient. We understand from our "Rep" that there were more but the hotel had cut down due to costs. On the plus side there was a regular bus at the top of he hill that went to Puerto Mogan (well worth a visit) and Puerto Rico where you could change to get another bus to Meloneras. Also a small taxi rank Overall we had a lovely holiday but are undecided whether we would return primarily due to the location.
