Ok this is a pretty truthful review...
Although we did have a fab holiday, it was the weather, the animation team and the friend we made that made it what it was.
The hotel room was big and spacious, which was lovely, balcony facing the pool even better. It was cleaned everyday but the cleaners would always come as you were getting changed or ready to head down to the pool/breakfast around 9.30-10 am... Bit of a pain! We forgot to tip the cleaners one day as they were hassling to get into the room and they didn't bother putting a pillow case on the pillows or clean towels!
The food wasn't as bad as we were expecting but it was boring as the same sort of things were served everyday! YOU CAN GET PANCAKES AND WAFFLES AT THE QUIET POOL BAR FROM 4.... No one bothers telling you these things tho so definitely ask as they won't tell you... Drinks were awful... The choice was fanta sprite cola vodka whiskey gin and brandy... Thats all YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR BOTTLED WATER...
We were offered a cocktail round the pool which was nice but at a price be aware if you want anything nice at the hotel you have to pay... Pay for cocktails, BBQ evening, some of the entertainment... Doesn't really feel like all inclusive! Drinks start from 11am -11pm so of you want drink in the room or outside of these time you have to pay
The animation team were all brilliant... Did some fun activities during the day and the evening... All very friendly and helpful! If you need anything ask any one of them they were a great help! It's better when they get involved more with the volleyball in the pool!
Most of the staff was friendly and helpful but some of them weren't... Simple as that really!
