My husband & I stayed 2 weeks half board at this hotel in April 2011. It is very modern and well presented. Rooms were huge - with plenty of living and kitchen space. The balconies were very large - plenty of room to sit outside and also an area to dry washing.
Staff were on the whole very friendly and helpful although they did give us bad advice on 1 occasion at reception. The restuarant staff were quite laid back, but always seemed to keep themselves very busy.
Cleaning was not great at this hotel - 1st week we had our room cleaned regularly, but by the 2nd week, we only had our towels changed once & never got given any new shower condiments. Would expect to have these from a 4 star hotel.
Food was cooked to a high quality & although limited in choice was a pleasant dining experience. If you are vegetarian or dont like anything on the Al La Carte menu it was never too much trouble for them to prepare a salad or omelette instead.
Pool area was nice & not too busy. Water was a bit too cold to stay in for long however.
The hotel is in an excellent location - 3 mins from the strip, 20 min walk to the old town & 5 mins to local beaches. Oura beach was the best & can be accessed via a road opposite the strip.
We'd come here again but probably only for 1 week, as there's not really enough to keep busy for 2 weeks & if it rains you're restricted to eating & drinking in the local bars & restaurants as there aren't really any 'bad weather' attractions.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel for families however - as there is no entertainment on at the hotel and the strip & area in general is full of stag & hen parties.
