Lovely hotel, very close to the beach. Plenty sunlounger & parasols, loads of room to laze about by the pool. Food was a bit so-so- for first few days, but definitely improved during our first week. The Kids Club was great, but unfortunately they didn't have much else for kids - the disco was aimed at toddlers. Also, the pools were a bit rubbish for older kids - yes they have a kids pool, but it's really for toddlers & just a basic small circle. The adult pool is quite deep at the shallow end - about 1.5m, so not suitable for poor swimmers. Really nice rooms, bags of space & all immaculate. Aqua gym class was rubbish, but there was a decent gym (unfortunately air con didn't seem to work in it). Indoor pool was great. My only real complaint about the hotel was the entertainment, which I felt was very poor for a 4 star hotel (first one we've been to in Europe). The dancers were about the best thing they had on, but most nights it was just 'one man & his keyboard'. The resort itself was ok, but again, not much happening. I would recommend a trip to Zoomarine near by, definiely worth it (get a leaflet from the airport to get a kid in for free).
