Our second visit and we are very likely to return.
A fine modern hotel with vast imposing lobby. Set in large grounds with impressive gardens, several pools and bars. More than adequate poolside loungers but lack of shade. In a quiet location but an easy, flat, 1 mile walk to the beach,bars and expensive shops; Half mile to a small run down shopping centre.
Hotel drinks prices are very reasonable, 3.30euro for pint of beer, 3.00 for extensive range of coctails. Nightly entertainment both on an outside stage and indoors in the adjloining Tabaiba hotel, ranging from highly professional to dull. Nightly english langauge film shown on large sceen in an outside bar - this is also the last bar to close at 00.30. Main bars close at midnight so not for night owls.
Room reasonable size, beds very comfortable, large spotless bathroom. Air-con worked well.
Room looked out over palm trees and tropical plants to a pool, a very pleasant aspect. But beware, there are a number of rooms with no view as they face directly accross a passageway to an identical block of tabaiba rooms.
Staff very genuinely friendly except for the charmless receptionist at check in
I would have rated the hotel excellent except that sheets were changed only twice during 9 night stay (I expect alternate nights in a 4* hotel), towels rather thin, no tea makung facilites in the room and a charge is made to use in-room safety deposit box (13.50 euros per week or 2.50 per night) and fridge (same rate).
Excellent selection of food at breakfast and dinner buffets. No queues. Hotel maybe half full but would easily cope when full.
First visit was with Thomsons. This visit booked directly with hotel and airline which worked out cheaper, even allowing for taxi to/from airport
