This a great hotel with so much potential, but I don't think they see that themselves.
The hotel itself is perfect. Compact, clean, nice rooms with a nice size and great view. The rooms are cleaned daily and they did a great job at it. I loved the fact we didn't need AC all the time (even though it was sizzling hot outside).
The pool is fantastic! Very big and the shallow bit is huge. Perfect for children. There's also a seperate toddler pool. Both pools are fresh water and cleaned every morning and people constantly walk around picking up garbage.
There's lots of space and plenty of sun chairs available, and also parasols are not hard to come by when shade is needed.
Now for the food. It's not bad, but not great either. My 4y old daughter is not a difficult eater, so she loved every meal. I on the other hand had more trouble. I'm a vegetarian, so it's usually more difficult on holiday, but this time it was a disaster. I basically lived on pasta and salads for a week. Not too bad, but I would've loved something else once in a while. The dessert buffet however was great each day! I just couldn't get enough of it.
Entertainment wasn't too great. Not for kids, nor adults. I'm not such a fan of all inclusive hotel entertainment, but my little girl wanted to do it all.
The shows are very very very amateuristic and sometimes even plain stupid. There's a kids club, but they don't use all of this potential. The colour, play Uno, ... But no real theme like stuff. No games. No crafting with sea shells.
The level of service really depended on the person. Some were incredibily friendly throughout our whole stay and others were very moody on a daily basis. After a day or two we knew exactly who to talk to if we needed something ;-)
All in all it was a pleasurable holiday and I would indeed return, because it was good value for money. I just hope the owners will eventually see how much they can do with what they have.
