We went in Sept taking our 20yr and 17 son. As it was Sept our sons were a little bored due to the lack of people their own age but that is hardly the hotel's fault. If you have older teenagers maybe stick to the main season or stay closer to nightlife.
On arrival we were checked in quickly to block one. The rooms were large, clean and had what we needed. the balcony was huge (we were on the top floor in a bit with bigger balconies)
I was worried about the food at first. The day we arrived was English theme day and to be honest the food was not good though we did all manage to find something we would eat. After that things much improved and there was plenty to choose from each day. I would say that by the end we were a little tired of the food but I think that is the nature with all inclusive food.
It was easy to get served at the bars night and day, despite the hotel being full and it had san miguel on draft for AI which is unusual. Cheaper versions of the usual drinks were also to be had and were fine. Water on draft all over the hotel. We were warned not to drink the tap water but this was filtered and fine. No tummy troubles at all.
No bad behaviour seen, but then we were there in Sept and there were a lot of families with young children and/or grandparents.
For a family with older children it is easy to walk to the beaches and the strip which at this time of year was full of families rather than drunken young adults!
Did not bother with the shows but we don't tend to like them anyway so can't comment.
Stopped going to the main pool due to the annoying entertainment, quizes, wager dancing etc but think there was a lot there for younger kids to do too. The kids pool was more peaceful so started going there.
Did great boat trip out to see the caves and the dolphins.
Old town really nice place to spend a day but too far to walk. Taxi cheapish though quite scary drivers!
Nice holiday, if a little boring for our sons. Would return to area but hotel is best suited to those with younger children wanting a hotel with lots for their kids to do.
