We arrived for a week in September for a mid honeymoon break (actual honeymoon is in Feb, so we had this as a break in between). The reception was very straight forward and quick. We booked a Honeymoon room and weren't disappointed with it. It was fabulous. I would definitely recommend upgrading to a honeymoon room. This is still in the main pool area. They had other private pool rooms/ suites but in my opinion, the location was a little far out for my liking but all honeymoon rooms are in the pool area.
Our room was very spacious, plenty of bathroom goodies. They left us some Baklava, a fruit basket and a bottle of sparkling wine. Plus the bed was decorated with flower petals. The bed was huge! Our private pool was lovely. Not a plunge pool, big enough to swim in. You only got sun on the decking till lunchtime, so we went elsewhere for the rest of the day.
The pool area was perfect, couldn't ask for anymore. The pool is huge and quite deep in the middle but they also have a kids pool right next to it. Pool bar was great. It never got busy and there was always plenty of cocktails to be tried. I recommend the Princess Andriana cocktail!
We used the indoor pool and gym. The water is so hot in the indoor pool. Tried all the other bits, steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi. All very nice. The gym isn't huge but I think it's fine for a hotel gym. My Husband had an athletic massage which he said was great but a little painful at times. But I think that's the point. Afterwards he felt great. Flexibility was greatly improved.
The beach was only a short walk away. It isn't a sandy beach and is quite painful to walk on but with beach shoes, it isn't a problem. Plenty of beach loungers and a lovely sea breeze.
The animation team - well normally I would say it's not my thing, however after a few cocktails, we thought we'd just give it a go and I loved the shows they put on in the evening. They work so hard all day really. I didn't join in with the exercises but they looked very good and were popular. Hats off to the team!!!!
Now onto the food........ seems to be a hit or miss issue on here. I'm a fussy eater, I only eat fish and birds (no cows, pigs and sheep) so I thought I would have difficulties with the food. But I can't fault that either. Huge choice and all very tasty. Some of it didn't taste the same as British food but that's because it's not Britain. I didn't see any burgers or curry although they did have chips during the day. Maybe this is why some Brits didn't like the food!!!! But I ate lots of different food during the week and didn't get bored with it. Neither did my Husband. The food temp was fine as well. I don't want it to burn the roof of my mouth when I'm on holiday but I certainly wouldn't describe it as cold. The table wine was a very general wine. It was very drinkable but if your a wine expert, you probably wouldn't like it. We ate in all the restaurants including the Moonlight restaurant which was very pleasant. Food was very nice here and with 4 courses to eat, we were pretty stuffed.
Now the only thing for us that was a negative was the house keeping. They didn't really seem to clean all of our room. The bathroom was left spotless and the beds were made and towels changed everyday but we didn't have our cups changed or cleaned for the whole time we were there. The dressing table top wasn't cleaned even when it was left cleared and the worse thing about it was the cleaner starting eating our fruit basket. I was shocked about that.
But having said that, I have still given it 5 stars as I don't think it was their fault that this happened.
