We went as a party of 6, 4 adults, 2 young teenage girls. The staff are really friendly and helpful, I went to reception and asked for a kettle in my room and when I arrived back to the room they were knocking on the door with it, we couldn't fault the service all holiday. The animation lads are great, they try to get you involved in the daily activities but don't pester you and they really make a fuss of the kids, theres something there for all ages to do during the day. the pools are amazing, no matter how old your kids are theres a safe pool for them to play in.
The food was fine, im not a fussy eater and will try anything. Bacon every morning for breakfast which was a bonus for my hubby, pizza, chips, pasta for the fussy kids during the day. Yes it was a bit repetitive but I think you get that with all inclusive everywhere. the snacks inbetween meals were bad, so make sure you go for your main food or you will be disappointed. There didn't seem to be a limit on how many drinks you can have from the bar which was good late on when the bar stopped all inclusive.
The biggest problem with this place was the beds. I used the sunlounger cushions under my sheet because it was so hard and everyone we spoke to said the same, but the rooms were fine, nice and clean and spacious enough.
If you like to be close to town this is not the place for you. The beach is across the road and theres supermarkets and a few bars within walking distance but its 12 euros for a taxi to the nearest town, I know that doesn't sound a lot but we went twice and it cost just under 50 euros for 2 trips so it does add up. They don't have mini buses either so if theres a party of you theres no cutting costs. its defenately a relaxing holiday area.
Everything is very expensive!!!!! So if you have kids and you want lilos etc buy them here. An inflatable whale cost us 20 euro, sun creams 20 euro, copy lacoste polo shirts 40 euro. And if your a smoker 20 fags 4 euro, 40g golden Virginia 8.80 euro so they were quite cheap.
Over all I would defenetly recommend this hotel. apart from the beds its a great place and you will enjoy your stay if you like to join in and have a good time. Anything you need to know feel free to message me and ill try my best to be honest and help. HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!!!!!
