Stayed in this hotel for 2wks from 14th june. Read a few bad reviews on trip advisor before we went and was a bit worried what to expect. On arrival we were shown to our room which was a bit basic but spotlessly clean with a huge bed which was the most comfortablest bed we have stayed in. Next morning we went for a walk around the hotel and it was huge. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and were kept like this by the hotel gardeners for our 2wk stay. All the pools were lovely. Our favourite was the adult only relax pool which was just in walking distance from the jetty. Down on the jetty we found the snorkelling amazing. The number of different fish we saw was fantastic. To top it all off on our last day we swam with a manta fish which was huge.
As for the buffet resteraunt there was always plenty of choice and the pastries were to die for. We ate at the 4 al a carte resteraunts and everyone of them was lovely. Our favourite being the fajita especially the deep fried ice cream. 1 night we had a special which we had to pay for in the cliff resteraunt. It cost us approx £45 for the 2 of us and it was worth every penny.(seafood salad to start. Seafood soup. Then main was half a lobster 4 giant king prawns a salmon fillet calamari and a big basket of fries. Then finished off with a lovely fruit salad). It was stunning. How anyone can complain about the food here is beyond us. Some people must eat a different meal at home every day of the year.
We have been to some lovely places on hols such as mexico and cuba but we have never had anyone from the hotel management come and see how our holiday was going. A specil thank you goes to Dee the deputy manager Sha and Leny the customer relations who were brilliant with us. They were always walking around talking to us and the other guests seeing if everything ok.
Also the resteraunt staff pool staff and bar staff were brilliant and couldnt do enough for you. Ati in the terrace bar looked after us and was such a nice man.
Please dont be put off by bad reviews as some people like to moan about anything instead of enjoying their holiday.
we absolutely loved our stay at the grand hotel and will definitely be returning soon.
