Stayed in the holiday village 29th april 2012 for 11 nights, only downside is with the booking of our hol, we were not informed that the holiday village did not officially start until 1-3rd may as splashpark was not open. cannot blame the hotel for this. we had a great time as it was our 1st family holiday with our 2 year old. It really is made around children & this is what attracted us to it. our son had the best time as there was always something to do. The creche did a stay an play so we did not have to leave him but the reps in the kids club are amazing, always full of energy & smiles & take the time out to make each child feel special. We throughly enjoyed every min of our time here from the food (breakfast being the best - proper sausages!) to the entertainment & the biggest rooms we have ever stayed in. We had a 1 bedroom apartment with all kitchen facilities with a double sized balcony with a sea view, tv caters for all, can get lots of english channels (channels 1-5, itv2, bbc3 & citv ect) The reason the holiday village works so well is the dedication from all the first choice staff & all the reps. They are always around with a smile & a hello & if anything does arise they help as best they can. Also if traveling to portugal, go visit the zoomarine, its about half an hour away & well worth it the dolphins are amazing. Transfer to the hotel is only approx 30-40 mins from the airport. Pool was cold but warms up with the weather. Cannot recommend this holiday enough to those with children & those who are big kids at heart. met some lovely familes while here & will definatlety will return but not untill may!
