This was our first holiday abroad with the children (aged 7 and 4) and we could not have picked a better hotel. I wanted their first experience to be special, and it certainly was that!
We arrived at the hotel quite late in the evening and after a speedy check in we were whisked off with our cases on a golf buggy (which was a god send as we were all tired from our journey). Our room was in the Fishing Village and was immaculately clean and very spacious. There were fresh sandwiches and water in the fridge which was a nice touch.
Throughout our stay the food was amazing. Plenty of choice and very tasty! There was something for everyone, and the puddings were out of this world!
There were plenty of drinks available, including cocktails and local beer and wine (which were both actually really nice).
The splash pool and the main pool near the lighthouse were our favourite spots during the day. You do need to get up quite early to pop your towel on the sunbeds though, but this is something that happens everywhere abroad I'm sure.
The entertainments team are fantastic and make the holiday so special for the children. It made my daughters holiday to win the 'Russell the Brussel' postbox competition where she got to go on stage to collect her certificate! We are still singing the catchy songs from the evening entertainment a month later!
All the staff at the Aliathon work tirelessly day and night throughout the hotel and gardens, and it shows. The service was faultless and I honestly think that we will struggle to find anywhere else to go that will beat this holiday. We will always now be comparing everywhere to 'the best'.
