I have recently returned from a week at the Vincci Lella Baya with my son and friends family. On arrival we were quite blown away by the stunning appearance of the hotel, quite unlike any other.
We arrived at 1am on Sunday 10th august and one of our rooms only had 2 beds instead if the required 3, but all credit, the hotel arranged for an extra bed to be brought and it was, within half an hour.
The staff were very friendly and helpful (and we didn't tip until the end of our stay).
The beach was not great, as recently something had caused a lot if sea weed and sludge to be churned up and it was also quite littered, but as a public beach this is not a problem which could be solved by the hotel. Perhaps Thomas Cook should advise holiday makers that it is a public beach!
However this was easily compensated by the beautiful pool area at the Lella Baya.
The all inclusive was a little disappointing and did sometimes make us feel like second class citizens with separate limited menus at the pool bar for lunch, although the restaurant was also available. We chose not to eat in the restaurant at lunchtime as it was the same choice food as the evening meal. Also the ice cream and ice lolly freezer was not part of the all inclusive, which caused a few problems for the staff as there was no sign to tell guests such. I can definitely recommend the pool bar pizza though... Lovely !
Special praise must be given to the new animation team (who arrived on the Sunday that we did). Rico, Max, Jazz and Titto are fantastic, they really made our holiday a fabulous one. They were friendly and engaging and really got everyone involved so that all nationalities could enjoy being together and having fun. Both for the daytime activities and the evening. Thanks to animation we met some lovely guests, enjoyed our evening entertainment and have come home with some wonderful memories.
All I can say is that your holiday is what you make it, there are some issues for the hotel to iron out, but certainly nothing to stop me from recommending the Lella Baya.
I wish I was back there now :)
