Just returned from our 2nd visit to this hotel. We first stayed in 2010 and decided to go back. It is a nice hotel if you have children as it is very family friendly but not so friendly if you are an older person who was looking for peace and guiet. The first time we were there was in the August and there were a lot of children, which is why we went end June (not school holiday time). We were a little dissapointed with the food, the variety and quantity were the same as last time but alas the quality wasn't, although people seemed to be filling their plates, however, it wasn't really for us. We had gone with the idea of probably having nice lunches out (tapas, fish, paellas etc) then probably just having soup and salad in the evening but the soups weren't to our tastes ie cream of garlic, cream of spinach, cream of asparagus and so on. On the occassions we did have the soup it was fine but the cold salad buffet, hot buffet, grill and carvery were not up to the standard we would expect from a 4* hotel. There was a section for children's meals. The breakfasts were as good as last time with plenty cold & hot buffet,freshly cooked eggs, omelettes & pancakes as well as breads, fruit, cereals and this time you could also boil your own egg for breakfast. On this ocassion we found the walk down to the old town a bit tedious but that was because both my husband and myself have walking problems (that is not the fault of the hotel), We would catch the road train outside the hotel down to the front 4 Euros each or 3.50 in the case of pensioners, which wasn't bad, however, quite often it didn't come back between 1.30 and 5.00 and on the first week didn't leave the hotel after 7.45pm, however, it was a boon instead of walking in the heat. There was a lot of entertainment through the day and evening but once again the children were allowed to stay in the entertainment room after their entertainment had finished so spoiled it for the 'grown ups'. I would recommend this hotel for families with children as the pools were really children friendly. The staff once again were very friendly and we couldn't fault them, not so the Thomson rep Simon, beware, he wasn't aware that if you tried to reserve a sunbed before 10am by leaving the towels on they were then taken off. He told us that there was no need as there were plenty of beds, however, when we went to get ours (not reserve them) we found Simon and Juan Carlo from reception taking off the towels where people had tried to reserve the beds - Beware. It is a good idea and should be practiced in more hotels. We weren't impressed with Simon (the Thomson rep) as he gave the impression that he couldn't be bothered, however, Kelly was very friendly and ready for a chat. The rooms were very clean as was the rest of the hotel and the service in the bars was very good. This hotel is definitely an excellent hotel for families but I'm not so sure for the older person.
