Stayed here 15-22 march as a group of 10. 8 ladies between 42-65 and a young couple.
The hotel itself is nice enough in a great location nice and quiet but literally round the corner from the main strip! 5 minute straight walk to the beach.
the rooms are spacious and very clean and tidy with lovely walk in shower or jacuzzi bath and spacious balcony
The only thing i realLy begrudge is having to pay for hire of a fridge or safe! Come on! These things should be included free with the room!
The public and pool areas were fine. No real problems getting a sunbed and the pool was shallow and heated.
We were full board and i had specifically chosen a hotel based on the great food reviews however we did find the food very repetitive most nights and like many have mentioned ŵas lukewarm at best!!
Having said that it all depends on specific tastes,! I did find the cold salads lovely and there was plenty of choice to be had even it was a little repetitive. The pudding selection was the same all the time and you will find your usual selection of jelly, icecream, balncmange type dishes and small bite size cakes none of which appeal to me but there was also fresh fruit like melon, strawberries, pineapple etc which i love! Apple crumble was served twice but then we found huge vats of warm custard and chocolate sauce were brought out every night....with nothing to go with it ! Strangely we found the food got better on our last few days.
The hotel itself seems to cater for people over 70 or rather it appears to have them as regular clientele. To be fair i found this fine as i want my hotel to be nice and quiet and relaxing so this suited me fine but please bear this in mind when choosing as i would not really recommend it to young families or couples if you are looking for an all inclusive experience as the entertainment seems geared towards the elder guest.
All in all the hotel was fine for our age group and i would still recommend it for the great location and lovely rooms.
Also one of our party turned 18 during our stay and returned to her room to find a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for her which was a lovely touch.
