I spent a week here at the end of September/early October 2011 with my daughter and family (two little boys). I was apprehensive after reading lots of reviews on here. So, what a wonderful surprise! I was in Colina 2 and the family up in Colina 1. Was disappointed about this initially but my room was excellent and I enjoyed the peace and quiet down there :-)
The food was lovely, with lots of choice and the snacks by the pool were fine (I had lunch there when I was around ) The only food that wasn't 'spot on' was the meal in the Portuguese restaurant there; service very, very slow too (we didn't return for the second a la carte meal as self-service food was so good) The reps and manager were exceptionally helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The boys loved their activities and also the evening entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed the week and would definitely go back. Don't let bad reviews put you off!
