we have just arrived back from this hotel, and didn't think it was that bad, after reading some of the reviews we were a little worried. what is true is that its very remote,theres no town to walk around you have to get the bus to the nearest town which is mahon,we new this before we went, but what nobody has said anything about are the beautiful walks that are near,we found one just down the hill near the beach that went into the countryside where we found tortoises a praying mantis and gekos, and another round the cliffs with ancient tombs in the side of the cliffs, all very interesting to us.The hotel itself is abit dated but spotlessly clean we stayed in a studio which was very spacious, but we were next to a generater that could probally annoy some people, it didn't really bother us. The token system for the drinks works really well , as theres no glasses left around.The food was fine, plenty of choice except breakfast, bacon and eggs were overcooked but the omlettes were very nice,staff were very friendly and everything was tidied away quickly and cleanly. I have to say the beds were not very comfortable, very lumpy!!Loads of sunbeds and a lovely pool, but it was freezing, we had amazing weather so it was easy to find something to do.Cant really comment on the entertainment as we only saw one act which was 3 guys dancing and doing gymnastics, it started very poorly but did get slightly better towards the end. The hotel was not that busy but still quite a few kids, but you can find nice quiet spots away from them! Thomson are taking this hotel over and doing a full refurb in the winter.Its mainly geered up for kids , and we wouldn't have liked to have gone in the summer months,We didn't like the beach very much, and the sea was a bit rough to swim, but even so we had a nice relaxing week, we wouldn't return just because it is so remote
