Return visit to the Cliffs with our grandson the major change being the new system of dining but more about that later.
We were lucky to find a space for the car under a front window which was a bonus and were efficiently booked in and had lunch in the Café Bar while waiting access to our room. The meals were OK but I wasn't impressed with the chips.
Our room (331) was a family room with a sea view through a large porthole, it was comfortable and reasonably spacious with the usual amenities although the en suite just large enough not to be a problem.
Given that our grandson was the main focus of our holiday the Cliffs was ideal, he thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the base and the games & disco. The adult entertainment was also very good, the duo Oxygen were superb.
Now to the buffet system which given the previous comments suggests that we went on a bad week, the service was abysmal. The buffet style starters and sweets were plentiful, tasty and well presented, the main courses were good once you had found a waiter to provide them.
Breakfast time was even worse. There was an excellent selection of both hot and cold items but a word of advice don't collect your hot breakfast before you have your toast delivered, 20 minutes was the longest waiting time. On a personal note, I am sure I am not the only diner that doesn't like underdone bacon. A tray of well cooked would have been nice.
The new eating system is good but let down by having insufficient staff.
