This was a good hotel overall, but not quite up to the 4* one would expect in the UK.
All the staff were amazing, we can’t fault them. We had half board and the food was very good. Breakfast was pretty much the same every morning but there is so much choice you could have something different every morning. Evening meals were changed daily. We usually had fish which was always delicious. Some evenings were themed and there is a barbeque once a week.
You are taken to your table on the first evening and that is your table for the week, for breakfast you sit anywhere
We changed our room on arrival to a larger room, we thought the standard room was too small for us (especially with the now extinct CRT TV taking up so much space) so changed to an apartment which was very spacious, 2 balconies, 3 piece suite, table & chairs, desk, coffee table and flat screen TV. Bath with shower and a bidet. Kitchenette, crockery, fridge and microwave all there too.
Rooms were cleaned and tidied every day with fresh towels whenever needed. Separate pool towels were also supplied. The pool was cleaned every morning, but be aware that there were no pool staff so keep an eye out for the children if indeed you see any at all!
Buses were outside the hotel and there seem to be taxi’s on every street, around 5.50 – 6 Euros into town but buses are much cheaper. The town and surrounding area is there to discover for yourself, but you’ll no doubt be sitting next to someone who goes back year after year and tell you about their favourite places.
There is entertainment every night with dancers/ performers on selected nights doing a 30 minute show. The resident performers alternate. The pair of young lads (vocal & keyboards) slow down the ballads to a worrying funeral pace for the first hour or so, and then gets marginally livelier. Brian on the other hand is a very talented keyboard player/singer with a great sense of humour.
On the downside at this hotel was that the lounge bar didn’t open until about 6pm, so if you wanted to get out of the afternoon heat (or rain in our case) and sit in comfy chairs with air conditioning with a drink – well you just can’t and that’s not a 4* hotel.
