Just returned from 7 day holiday to this fantastic hotel. We have already sampled the Sensatori experience in Tenerife and Crete, and we're not disappointed.
The hotel is newly refurbished and everything is clean and sparkling. We had a swim up room in block 6. Only annoying thing were the mosquito's buzzing around outside the patio doors which meant we couldn't make full use of our private sun bed.
The room was bright and airy, large flat screen tv,coffee maker,( ground coffee bags & tea bags)well stocked mini bar( refilled everyday),red stripe beer,soft drinks and water( no spirits). Great sized bathroom. Twin sinks, large rain shower. Safe in draw to store valuables ( no extra charge).
Pool area clean,plenty of sunbeds, although usual reserving of beds with towels from 7am, so need to get up early if you want a particular spot.Pools not heated but ok and we're never busy during our stay.
Food selection and quality was excellent in all restaurants and the Beaches buffet. Restaurants all "al a carte" with good selection and variety to choose from. Portions not massive as it is gourmet dinning, but you can alway ask for additional courses . I have two starters a couple of times at the Italian , and we're happy to oblige. Both wine and water flowed freely during all meals , staff constantly asking if you wanted your glass topping up.
All the staff in all departments very friendly and they couldn't do enough to make our holiday flow smoothly constantly asking " are you having a good holiday" " how,'s your day today" etc etc. They are all new and obviously trained to ask this. But they are I feel genuine nice people even if you remove the training that has been inbred into them. They need to be allowed to show more of their Jamacian culture by the management, who all walk round trying to look important with files and clip boards, instead of interacting with their paying guests. Yes they need to check standards are being met and maintained , but try smiling and talking to people. Follow the example of your excellent staff and lighten up a bit.to many chiefs comes to light!!
Beach party was great.
Entertainment was very Jamacian and not well supported during our stay. Think entertainment area a little to far away from main bar area. Maybe if they offered waiter service during the show it would encourage people to sit down closer to the stage area and watch.
In summary thought. Great hotel,great food,great location,great staff, great holiday.
Would I return. Definite yes
Would I recommend that you dear reader of this review spend your hard earned cash on a holiday here. Again a definite yes.
