"Never go to the same place twice and never go on one of those horrible all inclusive holidays". This was my mantra for years and it has been well and truly broken.
We first booked this hotel because we were going at half term in the last week of October. We felt it would be a good idea to have on site facilities in case the weather was inclement. We also liked the idea of the three a la carte restaurants in case we got bored of "samey" food in the main restaurant.
We have had only two poor days of weather in our four visits (all at the same time of year) but to our surprise we have found ourselves joining in to the activities which is not normally our thing. The animation team always let you know when the
activities such as archery, rifle shooting, Boccia, keep fit and many other varied games are about to commence but there is no heavy pressure to do so .Initially this encouraged us to have a go and we soon found the activities were run by with such a light humourous touch that the actual activity almost became irrelevant. This year Efe and his team really helped make our holiday
The food choice and quality is wonderful and we have only bothered with the a la carte restaurant on one occasion. Mind you this is just as well as other reports of the impossibility of booking these restaurants are perfectly accurate.
I can only second other reviews about cleanliness of everything and the friendliness of the staff . Although there were very few British Guests this year we did not feel marginalised and found our fellow Europeans good company
Only one word of caution. The British school half term is one of those most expensive times to take a holiday. This does coincide with the last week of the Hotel summer season where some of the facilities are being run down. We could not for instance use the pedaloses and the mid afternoon ice cream and doughnuts were not available on the last two days of our holiday. For this however we had the complex facilities designed for 3000 people shared between just a few hundred. At times it felt like our own private resort.
