.Just returned from 10 days all inclusive at the Golden Rock and we will now offer what we consider to be a fair and balanced review. Recognising that we all have personal preferences which can make or break a holiday we will concentrate on major issues only.The hotel is new and bright,generally well presented,and kept clean throughout. The bedroom was well appointed and fully adequate although the fact that all electricity goes off when you leave the room was a surprise as we have never seen this before.
We chose a street view room as we are lucky enough to have a sea view at home for the rest of the year but we must point out that these rooms are subject to quite a bit of noise from local bars.The high volume noise finishes at midnight and it never bothered us but if you are sensitive to noise then you should book a different side of the hotel.
On the days we went poolside we went down about 10ish and never had any problem getting a bed. It may look busy at first,but there plenty of spare beds stacked aside at each end of the pool.
The only issue where we had a big problem was with the food and the dining room. The standard of food was well short of what we would expect in this standard of hotel. Suffice to say that by the fifth day we went out to eat at night.Do not go early for dinner or you will be engulfed in a deluge of greed and non existent table manners.Go late and witness a scene of devastation after the ******** have had their fill.Not really the fault of the hotel but the staff at times just cannot cope.
A quick summary. Improve the food and dining room management and this could be a very good hotel.
