Stayed in the Blue Bay Classic from the 2nd June until 9th June. We arrived at 3am and were put in a twin corner room- we had concerns about the fact that our rooms balcony was easily accessible to the room next to us.We asked to be changed to a double room and to one that wasn't on a corner. We were moved very quickly the next morning.
The room was clean and spacious, with a very efficient remote control air conditioning system, it also had a fridge and LCD television.
The food in the hotel was good although my husband commented that there was too much chicken on the menu. This is nitpicking a bit because there was plenty of choices of salads and fruit and most importantly neither of us had any stomach problems. I didn't hear of anyone suffering with any stomach issues.
The entertainment was very limited and was finished by 10.30. This didn't particularly bother us but I do think they could do with an injection of enthusiasm into the 2/3 entertainment staff. I am a keen keep fitter and watched the aqua aerobics and decided it wasn't worth joining in as it was instructed with little or no enthusiasm, no expertise and little effort.
The hotel staff go about their jobs with a smile on their faces but generally without imposing themselves on the guests- they are not trying to become your best friend. We also didnt feel under any pressure to tip although we tipped both the waiting on and bar staff regularly.
The pool area was very pleasant and we had no problem getting sunbeds at 9.30-10.00 in the morning.
This is an adult only hotel which was very refreshing for a change. We also noticed that no one smoked indoors which we were delighted about.
The hotel is only a 1 minute walk to the beach where there are lots of bars and restaurants.
I booked this holiday through the Internet company Purple Travel which is a part of Hays travel. I would recommend this company as the flights, transfers and hotel were all excellent.
