Let's start with:
1) Room. Adequate and clean; air con that worked well and TV with a couple of channels in English. Balcony was disappointing, not the sort to sit out on with a glass ot wine at night; the view was a wall! Bed linen changed daily even if it didn't need it. Free safe in room. 7 out of 10
2) Food. Buffet style breakfast and evening meal. Lots of choice and looked great until you started to get fed up of the same old same old taste and flavour. Actually the food was too bland. Every evening there was some BBQ'd food which was always the most tasty part of the meal. 7 out of 10
3) Service. Waiters and cleaners very friendly and helpful, though always spoke in German first. Reception staff, polite but unhelpful on final days when trying to arrange a room for a late checkout (because of flight times). 18 hours hanging around without a room to change and clean in is not a great way to end your holiday. 5 out of 10
4) Pool. Very small for the size of hotel, but clean and refreshing with pool bar. 8 out of 10
5) Beach. Just a step out of the hotel; they keep it very clean and tidy and have plenty of beds with umbrellas at not cost bar a mattress. Waiter service on beach would have been nice but 9 out of 10.
6) Entertainment......didn't watch much but was told it wasn't bad......friends scored it 7 out of 10.
7) Animation Team...there was one but very poor. Every night the mini disco played the same music in the same order and the Animation Team looked so bored doing it that Im sure the kids nust have noticed. Other joys were volleyball, darts and air gun shooting which was mainly only the Animation Team doing it. 2 out of 10.
8) Side itself is a bustling little town about 1mile away....great at night 8 out of 10.
