1st class service from all the staff (especially daytime pool bar!), restaurant waiters/chefs, room service, entertainment/spa team & reception. We where asked to complete a service questionnaire both weeks so if you do have any issues they will be resolved! The room was spacious with a quality super king bed,decent shower & big balcony which was cleaned & made-up daily. Only 10 minutes from airport so connection was a dodle & beach/pools/spa services where well staffed to ensure a relaxing day (haggle with spa pricing to get a 2 for 1!). Note Coraya Divers are much more cost effective than the Thompson recco & where fantastic if you're interested in scuba/snorkeling trips! Evening singer & evening animation team (who did a great job with the daytime activities inc. volleyball, water polo & water aerobics!) shows where awful but we found this entertaining in itself! Superb if you want a relaxing break with guests of other nationalities, stick to Benidorm if a boozy "Brit-dominated egg & chips" holiday preferred (local beer/wine great, spirits poor & food caters for all Euro palets). Haggling results in good deals from the on-site shops but the pharmacy tries to take absolute liberties; Dr Peter who's surgery is also on-site is great & will ensure a proper price for any medication if needed (my wife & I had upset stomachs for 2 days out of 14 which is good for Egypt & wasn't down to the hotel, just the change in environment!). The brochure desciption is accurate - they cater (very well!) for families with kids so if you don't like kids go elsewhere or book outside of European school holidays (our first week was within northern Europe Christmas school holiday time so a fair number of young kids but week 2 was much quieter). Best likes was the genuine desire by the staff to please, our only dislike was the Pharmacy who attempted to rip us off before we saw Dr Peter who resolved!
