I and my partner had booked a week All Inc for Sept and after reading reviews closer to the time I even attempted to switch my hotel booking but had left it too late. We had decided to go with an open mind, relax and enjoy the holiday in this 3* hotel.
I feel I must leave you a review I am my partner are a young couple and the location is extremly good your a 15 min walk from the Strip new town with all the night life and your about a 10 min taxi ride from the Old town nice bars and placing to eat, loads going on in the square very good. Strip is like a few drinks and back to hotel, old town is gorgeous settings for food along the front and the best for looking around loacal shops and stalls.....
Back to the hotel there is NO smell in the lobby this must of be sorted it looked very clean and the reception staff had been helpfull on the first night ONLY, anyother time simple questions would result in a snappy answer or even no answer at all :-(
The lunch time staff helpfull selection of food rubbish and very poor quality of cooking unless you like spag bol which is what I lived off for a whole week ha. You could get drinks if you like and please note to All Inc the bottled water IS NOT FREE.
Pool area lovely very nice settings looking over the cliff to the beach(Nice walk to the beach lovely views on the way down the cliff not that bad to get to if you are ok at walking 5 min walk if that to either of the beaches at the side of the hotel) plently of sun loungers but please note there is another pool which is for the germans only or if you have a yellow band which I guess in its own way is not a bad thing (hotel 80% German I would take a guess at FYI).
Breakfast & Evening meals are the worst meals of the day, breakfast over cooked hot food and the cold selection was ok, no continental breakfasts just cooked of cold cheese,ham, fruit. Tea and coffee with juice - we lived off toast and we set our own table most of the holiday service terrible. Evening meals sometimes my partner enjoyed the chicken & Turkey but I personally never enjoyed anything for evening meals and we had to eat out the food was terrible and again no service we had to set our own table and dont wait to be served with drinks go to the waiter/waitress to get served.
The bar staff very nice people no problems at all helpfull freindley good service.
The daytime and evening time entertainment which is shown in the brochure - daytime entertainment had been provided but only by the German entertainment team nothing for the others, the evening entertainment few shows but nothing to get excited about it was eaiter early night or go out the hotel. If your going Self Catering you will have no problems at all. I would of complained to the rep but only saw her on the first & last day of the holiday. All in all we had a great holiday because we made it our own perfect time with my man. Hope this helps. I would rate the hotel as a 2* - The cleaners do a good job my room was clean and large.
Aqualand have a good water rollacoaster but without that there would be nothing more really to go on - a fight for loungers
