One of the bigger hotels I have stayed in. Arrived with a full coach load,didn't take long to book in because I was one of the first at desk..will not start with a negative view, so leave the reception to end.. Rooms are a little smaller but quite a large balcony which we used quite a lot.. Plenty of storage.For first time I had a very comfortable bed. You couldn't say shower was powerful but it was ok, we always take our own toiletries.. Their own was rather limited..Towels changed everyday, bed linen quite often. Room was spotless all time we were there, the cleanliness of the whole hotel was outstanding.
Three lifts to every block so never had to wait long.. reception had many different areas with comfortable seating and the ambiance was cosy and restful..Dining room very large and the noise the first day was alarming, but one soon got used to it. Always seated immediately and there was plenty of choices of food which was cooked to high standard.Waiters were amazing to cope with such a large crowd which they done with calm and respect.. Many pools areas, we preferred the one facing beach, hedge around for privacy, no trouble getting sun beds.. Entertainment was good Wi Fi was expensive, €30 euros for 2 weeks around €2 a day, not too bad when you look at it that way, when you add safe then that's €70 extra..This hotel is comfortable and relaxing, not too many regulations.. We really enjoyed our holiday.. But the reception, why are all the complaints not dealt with !!!!! My own experience ,, Booked in and handed room card, told 10th floor with a flutter of hand to right which I took to be the lift..not visible from desk.. She was young, she was arrogant,, not the place for her.. Listen to lots of complaints, when the mature men were on duty things ran smoother. This hotel does marvellous job considering the amount of people they cater for. I will be back next year, highly recommend it.. Just beware of reception....
