Don't be misled by the negative reviews - this hotel is brilliant.
The hotel staff are amazing, the restaurant staff will bend over backwards for you, the entertainment team (Denise, Ulises, Carlos, Israel and Alex) were absolute superstars and the bar staff will remember your names, your drinks and, (in my case), your wedding anniversary.
The 6 restaurants are all decent (but not amazing). The Old Barn is fab as is Sumo. Pier 12 is pretty good and Shangri-La is OK (you need to wear trousers and collared shirt in there which I did only once). The Breeze (for burgers etc) is open 23hrs a day and The Paradise restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch (for lunch I'd suggest Shrimp Chow Fan from the Chinese counter).
The rooms could do with a upgrade but we only slept, showered and jacuzzi'd in there.
The pool, though small is adequate but could do with an aesthetic overhaul. There's always something going on in there (volleyball, basketball, beer pong, darts, table tennis, silly games).
The beach is simply amazing with pure white sands and a crystal clear sea.
The best part of this all is though is that everything is within spitting distance. Sit at The Tiki Bar and you will get to know everyone's name - and they'll know yours - within a day. Every holidaymaker, on my two trips anyway, were fantastic. Yes you get the odd weirdo guests but don't you get that everywhere? (perhaps people thought I was one of the weirdos!)
I had an absolute blast. I can't wait until 22/6/15 when I return. See you there.
