Spent a week here 2- 9th July, our second visit to this hotel. All the staff from the receptionists to the chamber maids were helpful,polite and courteous, the rooms were spacious, spotless and comfortable and the gardens beautifully maintained and peaceful.
The pool area can become very hot during the day and we preferred the shade of the gardens. There are plenty of sunbeds for everyone, so why do people insist on " booking " them with towels and then leave them unused for half the day? How selfish!!
We used the indoor pool and had it to ourself - be warned it is very deep!
The ambience in the dining room was very pleasant and food was plentiful, although we did feel the choice of main courses was a bit limited at times.
The location of the hotel is perhaps not to everyone's taste and if you are looking for nightlife and biz , it certainly isn't for you, but we found this holiday to be one of the most relaxing ever.
I can't comment on the entertainment , as we were usually in bed by 11, exhausted by a hard day's sunbathing!
The beach can be reached by a pleasant 20 min stroll through the grounds of the Pine Cliffs resort next door and it is stunning!
There are 2 supermarkets in the resort and the one to the right at the foot of the steps in front of the hotel is cheaper. Again, we found the staff there to be very friendly.
We went to Brothers bar after having read reviews on this site - it was ok, but we much preferred Tanya's ( turn left at the foot of the steps, last bar on left ) the staff were great and soon came to know us , having our order ready as soon as we sat down!!
A previous review commented on young, noisy, inappropriately dressed guests - em where? We saw absolutely no evidence of this at all , in fact the noisiest guest we saw was an old guy who moaned about everything.
All in all an absolutely wonderful holiday, topped off by a complimentary bottle of chilled champagne as this was our second visit - fantastic.
