I have just returned from a 2 week stay (25.5.14-8.6.14) at this wonderful hotel, for my 5th visit in 3 years. I wouldn't usually have bothered writing another review, as I'd only be repeating myself about the brilliant location, great choice of food, fab activities, entertainment, kids clubs, crèche etc, and last but definitely not least, the AMAZING staff who work tirelessly to make sure you have a great holiday, always with a smile, and who remember you visit after visit & greet you like old friends. I'm pleased to say that over the years, a few of these guys HAVE become friends, and it's mainly down to the wonderful staff that make the hotel as great as it is; this year however, there has been a refurb and a few changes since my last visit- the refurb is looking great so far, although not drastically different (lobby bar for example) but the extended Mediterranean restaurant is great and I LOVED the "new" village diner which was under construction last time I was there last May. The only place to get ice cream from now during the day is downstairs from the lobby, which is a bit of a pain if your at the pool, hence why we only bothered once (walking back with it melting in the heat=Ice cream splatting on the floor=very upset kids!) if it has to be kept inside, surely the entrance to the al a carte building is a better place?!? As another reviewer has also mentioned, a cover over the play area would be brilliant and is much needed- the equipment is just way too hot to use during the day, so it went unused by us this time. All in all, this was another great visit and I'm glad we came back. We had said we were going to try other places and perhaps give the HV a miss for a while, but coming back has made me fall in love with it all over again, and I'm already planning my return for hopefully later in the year, if not then definitely next year, but even if I do start to go elsewhere, this will always be my go to place, and my 2nd home in the sun. I can't wait to return soon x
Room 4206 25/5/14-8/6/14
A few tips:
*Book the al a carte restaurants as soon as you get there as they get booked up quickly, especially the earlier sittings, but they are definitely worth visiting.
*Dont bother with First Choice for any excursions/trips, the exact same trips are available outside for half the price. Even if FC try to use scare tactics to get you not to book with outside companies, that's all it is- scaremongering. I have used Falcon & Sharm vacation excursions & can highly recommend both. Any questions, feel free to ask :-)
