I recently stayed here to celebrate my birthday with a group of friends. The hotel was clean and in a quiet location perfect if you just want to chill. On arrival we were very well looked after at reception by very friendly staff who explained well the all-inclusive package. Our rooms were ready for us which was also an added bonus. The manager introduced himself which I thought was a nice touch.
The rooms are spacious and very clean and although I didn’t have a pool view it really didn’t matter. The bar served most drinks you would want, and although at times the service was slow, mostly the staff were friendly. I did feel at times that the bar especially during busy periods was not sufficiently staffed. One particular staff member could have tried a little harder to smile !!
The pool area was really lovely with plenty of comfortable sun beds, it was especially pretty at night.
The pool area was busier at weekends with local children using the pool. Most of them had no manners what so ever, being rude to my friends. A fellow traveller had to tell them on more than one occasion how to behave.
Our package included all meals served buffet style or snacks from the bar at allotted times during the day. The breakfast was very good with plenty to choose from. It was however not replenished quick enough at busy periods. Lunch again was good with a pretty good selection. By dinner I felt that the food lacked variety and that some of it was not very warm.
The bar snacks lacked choice and we were given wrong orders. The food was often cold and not very well presented. Should I return to the hotel I would probably choose bed and breakfast as there are a couple of places to eat within walking distance.
Overall the hotel was able to offer us a relaxed and chilled environment which was clean and for the most part served acceptable food. The hotel needs to ensure the evening food is just as good as the day with better selections and I would probably return.
