Clean, friendly, well equipped, 5 pools plus water park, impossibly hard working and accommodating staff, sun and plentiful food and drink. Why would you moan ?
The food really doesn't have to be repetitive as some reviewers have stated - my son ate chips, pizza and spaghetti bolognese every day only because he chose to and didn't want to try anything else. I had beef, chicken, fish and vegetable tagines, barbecued meat, curried veg, noodles, rice, roast vegetables, fresh salads, and fresh juicy fruit.
Breakfast includes cereal, pancakes, omelettes, eggs, fruit, bread, croissants and pastries. Hardly limited and repetitive. How often do you vary your breakfast at home ?
The entertainment team work endlessly, offering football, water polo and aerobics during the day among other activities and then providing the entertainment at night. I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in moving about or joining in with that stuff, so I didn't and there is no pressure to do so. Most people enjoyed it, although it was mainly child orientated.
I see that some people also objected to there being wasps. Well, I think we have those in England too and I've managed not to be bothered by them here either.
My main criticism - the wine was awful, so I drank beer or vodka instead, but I hardly class this as a crisis resulting in a ruined holiday.
I can only assume that those who criticise this hotel have very unrealistic expectations of a 4 star family hotel with it's own water park. Everyone I spoke to felt it compared very favourably to other all inclusive experiences they've had and I have no hesitation in recommending this holiday to anyone with kids.
I stayed in Aug 14 with my 12 year old son, met some lovely people and enjoyed a faultless holiday. Thank you.
