Stayed for 2 weeks after seeing the great reviews on here, must say I was a little disappointed due to the unfriendliness and sometimes basic lack of manners of the waiters and reception staff.
The hotel, location and facilities are excellent with the food being good although a little repetitive. The hotel is just let down by the miserable people who work here. The waiters are the worst, the first nights meal I thought I was just unlucky but this continued for the whole 2 weeks. They are simply not interested in any interaction or even smiles. I don't know if I have just been spoilt with my last few holidays being in Egypt and Florida where the staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and enjoy the place but here was the polar opposite.
The entertainment team were better but they don't exactly go out of their way to get to know you either. They seem to just play games with the same people every day and don't have a walk round the pool just to say hello or anything like that.
On the whole I had a good holiday due to the people I met but I probably wouldn't come back here unless the staff improved dramatically.
