The poor reviews on this site are not fair on the hotel. Its not the best hotel in the world but if you're like us, you probably got a very good price on it.
Yes it is full of Germans and Russians but we just ignored them and had tunnel vision in the restaurant. They dont wait for you so I didnt wait for them.
The Hotel was very good. Hotel staff always happy to help. Restaurant was good. Food not very English but you could always find something you liked. Best food was the chips plus hotdogs or beef strips from the pool bar between 12noon and 5pm.
Kids entertainment was good. Evening entertainment not great but not the worst Ive seen.
The hotel is very close to the airport and is directly under the landing flight path so very low planes fly overhead for most of the day. To start with its exciting, then it gets boring, then it gets slightly annoying at 7am or 11pm. Its not constant but enough that it may get annoying. We did not let it affect our holiday but its something to be aware of.
Be prepared for a hefty bill if you have to visit the onsite clinic. My 10 year old son cut his toe and had to have it cleaned and 4 stitches. Doctor was very good and friendly but I was very surprised when the bill appeared under our door the next morning. £330!
I struggled to find a website for the hotel before we went but I now know that it is a "pickalbatros" hotel so that should help you search. The word Primasol does not appear anywhere within the hotel. The hotel is called "Albatros Resort".
Tip: There is a heated pool in Aqua Blu Hotel next to building number 5, two minute walk from Albatros Resort pools. We didnt find it until the day before we left!
