My Husband & 2 kids (11 & 12) loved this hotel. It was fantastic value for money. Generally the place was very clean. The al a carte's were fab. The pools were plenty, and the areas around them were very spacious.
I did sometimes feel the pools could be a bit grubby and often turned a blind eye to things that I felt on the pool floor (what I couldnt see wouldnt hurt me!!)
We only experienced the main buffet twice, it is a truly horrendously busy place. That said my family and myself waltzed in their late one night feeling a bit hungry on our way up to our room. The place was empty but the waiters were still their, we had a great laugh with them, they were so genuinely freindly.
Your best bet as far as the buffet restraunts are concerned is definately the Round The World, it is much more relaxed, and less stressfull.
If your older children get bored, they can get involved with the animation teams activities. Its a great way for them to join in and meet other young people that they can have fun with. The animation team were all very good, some however, were excellent exceptionally kind, and freindly, and brilliant with the kids. if I could make one suggestion to the person in charge of the animation team it would be to have pehaps 2 or 3 designated team members for the older kids, your 10 -16s that dont, or cant go into the kids club. Concentrating on more age appropriate activities that could in turn encourage more youngsters to join in.
Overall the bar staff etc, were all very freindly, you did get the odd one who was a bit miserable on occassions, but hey ho, you cant always expect people to be bubbling over with happiness and enthusiasm 24/7, we all have our off days.
In general this was a very good hotel, despite the odd wee petty niggle.
It had just the right mix of fun and freindly. Just what you need on a family holiday.
An earlier reviewer described it as Butlins in the sun. was that an insult? Butlins in the sun would be awsome!!!
Anyway go. Stay open minded, and you will love it.
