Like most people, we researched all possible hotels before booking, which included checking on here. And this hotel came up the best for the money we could afford. It had the odd bad comment but you have to balance that with the majority which were good comments.
And it worked well for us, in fact we probably got more than we expected, but that's because we didn't go expecting a 5* (it would have cost a lot more than we paid for a start!).
Yes we didn't get loo rolls replenished as much as we'd have liked, and the choice of drinks were a bit basic (cocktails not really cocktails as we know them) but you get what you pay for and if that was the worst of our problems I think we were very lucky! And it really was excellent value for money.
So many choices of beautiful places to sunbathe (so many pools to choose from!) and a lovely beach (think the person who said the beach was poor must have wandered onto a different beach!), such hot weather, almost unbearable at times, friendly service, decent food and a fab customer relations team who checked on guests daily to check all was ok and putting right any problems, really appreciated that service.
I would highly recommend this hotel, don't be put off by the odd bad comment, look at the bigger picture and balance them with all the good ones. We will definitely go back.
