We arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning following a delayed flight. The We arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning following a delayed flight. The staff was pleasant and courteous and made the check in process quite bearable. On arrival in our room we noticed that we had a twin room rather than a double room, within 5 minutes a member of the house keeping team arrived to put the bed together and change all the bedding - I was impressed!
The rooms are very clean and off a good size for a hotel of this quality. The bath rooms have separate bath and shower cubicles with plenty of water to have a bath and shower simultaneously.
It is worth saying that the housekeeping services of this hotel are exceptional, and this is noticeable throughout the resort.
On a negative note service in the buffet restaurant can only be described as inconsistent, on several occasions we had to spend several minutes finding an available table with little assistance from the restaurant staff. This restaurant could be massively improved by simply being met on arrival and shown to available tables. Once seated the food was acceptable (I must qualify that I’m a bit of a gourmet foodie).
On 5 nights we experienced the hotel ala carte restaurants. Without going into too much detail the Italian and Turkish restaurants excelled, this was made more memorable by the head waiter’s tentative service and food recommendations. On a negative note the Mexican restaurant was disappointing, the menu wasn't like anything I've seen before; the main courses consisted of several types of meet being cut off a skewer at 5 minute intervals. This would have been improved with a few more potatoes (we were given 3 potatoes with the first meat and none with the others) and maybe some vegetables.
The hotels is all inclusive and to be honest it's difficult to spend any money other than the upgrade to the all inclusive restaurants 5 euros's per person which is worth every penny.
The staff at the pool bar was at times very poor, on occasions we waited 15 minutes to be served, and drinks never arrived more than once.
To conclude I would return to this hotel, and this is quite an accolade. Generally well done!
