Just arrived home from a great week with the girlfriend.....weather was great (had 1 cloudy day).
We ended up being put in the VIP block and the room was very spacious, although we didn't spend much time in the rooms they were cleaned daily, fresh drinks in mini fridge and an all round good nights sleep. The interior may have been slightly dated but at the end of the day who goes on holiday to sit in a room!! Only negative really was that I kept stubbing my toe on a lip in the doorway of bathroom.
The pool was very big,clean but rather cold. A very good variety of activities around the pool and a majority of the entertainment team were very friendly. If you do enjoy bathing by the pool then I recommend to get up early to get a bed, although there are a lot of beds we often found it difficult to get one even though they weren't being used but just had towels left on them! Personally I don't think they should allow people to reserve beds....
There are plenty of bars dotted around the resort with a good range of drinks which are available for most of the day! There was a good range of food but it does get a bit samey after a while. The resort does have a few extra restaurants included with the all inclusive which I regret not going to. The layout of the food was great and the waiters were on the ball, always making sure you had a drink and checking up!
As our first holiday together we wanted to get something nice so we decided to have a photo shoot by one of the team photographers. We are so happy with the service we got and also a great deal. I recommend that if you did want something like this go and see Ronaldo, he's a great guy and was very friendly!
It is a very family orientated resort and it would have been nice if they had evening entertainment (maybe separate from the kids club area) for young adults (or anyone without kids who wants to join in) as it did all seem very much about the children which is fair enough but would be nice if they had something more for our age. Or something like an organised night out in Gumbet bar street. The entertainment was very consistent but very much the same every night.
I sometimes felt under pressure by people selling things by the pool, we did agree to a Turkish bath which was very nice and I highly recommend it although the only thing that let it down was the people didn't appear to speak great English and told us we had to have more treatment as it was a must have and myself and girlfriend felt pressure into having it. It would have been nice to be offered it clearly at the beginning so we weren't put on the spot. Other than that a very friendly enjoyable experience.
All in all I think it was a great holiday and we would love to go back next year but hopefully there may be a bit more entertainment for younger adults in the evenings.
