Stayed for 2 weeks, 3-17th July '14, amazing and such a big hotel complex. Can definitely recommend Don Pablo section! As soon as we arrived we were escorted to the Don Pablo lounge, lovely a well air conditioned! We were given a very cold damp flannel/towel to cool down and champagne & given our first full week of dinner reservations in the a la carte restaurants. Lovely Peta took us & our luggage to our room, we were on 7th floor, room 23713, wow! What a fantastic view! Overlooking the Don Pablo pool area and beautiful sea! Stunning! The lift in block 23 was out of order during some of our stay, but we were able to use block 24 lift which was air conditioned and so much nicer!
Staff at this resort was so friendly, fun and polite at all times. Special mention to Fabian, such a character and had us laughing each day by the pool during the water aerobic sessions!
Pool area was always clean, drinks were always offered and bought to you when in the Don Pablo section, also in the Don Pablo section of the beach, which was well shaded. Lovely beach.
Food here is fantastic, full of flavour, the best we've experienced on any holiday. Our favourite restaurant was the Don Pablo, it was amazing! The only restaurant that disappointed us was the Dolce vita, everywhere else was fab! The buffets restaurants had a fantastic selection and flavoursome! The Jerk chicken at the beach restaurant was gorgeous! You must try it!!!
There are a few cats and kittens on the resort, lovely friendly little things, was nice to give them a little drink and a bit of food when we saw them :)
The little shopping complex on the resort was very good for gifts, prices seem a little high but they do bring down the price if you think it's too much, don't be afraid to ask!
The nightly shows were very good, but repeated in the second week, which meant we'd only go to the one's we had missed. Lots going on in other areas of the hotel though.
All in all we had a fantastic hoiday, that of course, we would thoroughly recommend!
