My feeling on this hotel are totally mixed. The food was good, not exceptional and could have been better but didn't have any problem with it. The dining area was a bit shabby and could have been a bit better. The entertainment was excellent. My children were 3 and 1, the energy and enthusiasm was something I had never seen in holiday reps so very well done! Eldest was a bit too cautious to go into the kids club for more than one visit however, it did seem to be very good. If you have energetic children this resort has loads to offer and I think that you could totally overlook the 'rough around the edges' aspects to the resorts. I was extremely disappointed in our room. So much that I wish I had complained and been transferred on arrival. We paid extra for a sea view with a balcony. We were given a room a fair walk from the main building, with a shared balcony ( shared access with another 2 rooms), which was also easily viewed from the communal lifts which opened adjacent to windows at the side of the balcony. The balcony was very dirty and had areas of water logging. The balcony overlooked a really unattractive part of the hotel roof which had air cons fans etc on it so it was not the best view at all! Also, the entrance to the balcony from our room was a very large step. My youngest struggled to crawl up on to the balcony however, due to this step, the pools of water, dirt on the balcony and the fact it was shared we didn't use the balcony at all and kept the doors shut throughout the holiday! The room was very shabby and not the best too. With young kids we find ourselves spending a little more time in the room due to nap time etc. that was why we decided to select a sea view with balcony so we could sit out on the balcony when the kids were tired and in bed (as we have done before in previous hotels). We met people who had taken a basic standard room. Theirs was in the main building, with a private balcony so we felt annoyed at having to pay extra for what we were given. As I have said I really wish we had complained at the start of the week and been moved (which i suspect they may have done if they could). In summary, I wouldn't return to this hotel however, if you were given a nice room and had energetic kids who are happy to get involved in all the activities available it may be a good choice for you. It is a bit like but butlins in the sun but that's what kids want isn't it!?
