What a lovely hotel. We booked at the very last minute (less than 24 hours before travel) so we weren't sure what to expect. We arrived very late and were booked into a family room. This was quite small for 2 adults and 2 children especially as our eldest is 13. It would be perfect for 2 children under 7. The air conditioning system was very noisy and kept us awake so we asked to change rooms the following day. The Manager Harry was amazing. He was very patient and considerate. We were shown 3 potential other rooms despite the hotel being incredibly busy and we were very happy with our change of room. We got the impression that the management would have been very accommodating whatever our request might have been or for whatever reason. All the hotel staff were incredibly attentive and polite. We were on half-board and normally I get really sick of the food by the end of a week away but the buffet was high quality food and changed every evening. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all delicious. We were also extremely happy with the HEATED pool. It was the perfect temperature and this is one of the only hotels we have been to where the pool has been properly heated for October/November. We have tried Aphrodite Hills in Cyprus, the Abama in Tenerife and the Princess Yaiza in Lanzarote and all their pools were too cold out of season. Not so Le Meridien. Swimming is important to us as a family so we were really pleased about this. They also had an excellent water slide which is always policed by a lifeguard and was enjoyed by all ages from toddlers to teenagers and even the odd grandparent. The other important thing to note was that although there was the usual 6am scrabble for sunloungers Le Meridien had the most sungloungers and umbrellas we have ever seen at a hotel. Okay you may not be up early enough to grab the prime spot but there was always a lounger and an umbrella you could use and Le Meridien has the space that you can always at least be in the area you want to be in - excellent. The beach was also beautiful and the sea lovely and calm. Excellent waiting staff would patrol both the gardens, pool and beach serving drinks. Very efficient and we never had to wait for anything. We also really liked the gym and studio which were really accessible near the main pool and not buried in a basement as they so often are. We loved all the activities on offer and all the exercise classes were of a good standard (that we tried) and free. The entertainment in the evening was also fun. We liked the fact it wasn't in your face and you could choose to join in or not. A really big thank you to all the staff who really were so friendly and always unfailingly polite. It is one of the best hotel experiences we have had overall.
Only two tiny constructive criticisms were that they did have a slight issue with the drainage and every evening you did get a whiff of sewage. Not pleasant but hopefully something easily sorted. Also, totally understandable for the time of year, but we were led to believe that there were 6 restaurants but in reality 2 of those were pool bars which were shut in the evening. Of the other four, one was Le Fleuri which was the breakfast/lunch/dinner/half board buffet. Of the other 3 we only managed to visit the Japanese one (lovely and very pretty) as they all shut in rotation or were closed for private functions. We would have loved to try the Taverna and have some fresh fish but it was either shut or had private functions when we were there. None of this effected the quality of our holiday though and we still had a lovely time.
I would definitely return here. Well done Le Meridien!
