Arrived in the evening and had a personal check in in the Club lounge over a refreshing drink of our choice. Room and bathroom excellent-both large and spotless. Club lounge serves American breakfast, light lunch, afternoon tea and hors d'ouvres and all included in the Club price. Drinks both soft and alcoholic served from 12-2200. This alone makes the upgrade to club a no brainer. Staff so courteous and welcoming, they just could not do enough to make your stay memorable. 6 pools-we only used the family pool as it was the biggest. Exceptionally clean and well maintained as is all the hotel and grounds.
If I was to look for a couple of criticisms............
One would be that although most drinks were available, there were a few noticeable exceptions and if those are your poison then you may be a little disappointed. We both like a Campari and soda before dinner and Campari was not available and we would both have liked a brandy with our coffee in the evening and this was not available either. So beware you may have to compromise on your tipple. The sparkling wine is prosecco and very nice it was too. Champagne was an extra cost and there were some complaints but I think this was just snob value.Also (and this is nothing to do with the hotel), there is a metro line being constructed along by the Royal Meridian next door. There is no dust and nothing to see but there is a certain amount of noise. This did not bother us or 95% of the guests but there were a few making a fuss-totally out of proportion with the problem I would add- but nevertheless were making their complaints well known to anyone that would listen. But these people were in my opinion professional moaners and were without doubt looking for some form of 'freebie' for what they considered an issue.
All in all an excellent holiday ad would return in a heartbeat.
