Stayed 10th - 20th Aug and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
I would have given it 5* if following were addressed:
- Room was 4*, shower in need of good scrub (but my standards are just high and resort enormous and probably hard for staff to keep rooms 5* all the time)
- hand sanitisers not enforced when entering restaurant, so it not appealing to touch dishing up spoons that everyone has touched, then eat ones meal.
The location is highlight. I wouldn't recommend going to Blue Lagoon as the beaches are not as pleasant as hotel's beaches, which are very well kept.
Food - was wonderful. I recommend you try the Sentido restaurant when kids at Kids clubs. Our kids luckily happy to go to kids club a few times during day and most evenings. So we were able to enjoy adult only restaurant to have more peaceful romantic meals. There is food for every palate. food for babies to beef bourguignon. Upstairs at Marine there is a smaller, quieter buffet with air-conditioning. We had most of our breakfasts up there as a small buffet all one needs for breakfast - but one can happily venture downstairs to get something you want that not upstairs and come back to air-conditioning. All the food in all of the all inclusive restaurants amazing, so waste to spend more money at other restaurants - rather save it to spend on watersports. How much more variety people can stomach is beyond me.
I recommend Kids in Action Watersports - 70 Euros to do para-sailing, Ringo, Banana boat, Jetski.
Kids club - our kids loved the 3 days and 6 evenings they spend at kids club. Kids club run from 10am - 6.30pm, then again 7.30pm - 10.30pm daily, except Mondays they closed. You can sign child in or out anytime. Ours stayed till 4pm when get back from pool. Kids don't spend much time at the club house, they travel around doing activities, but you get a pamphlet each week with schedule. Archery, football, mini golf, Judo, tennis etc. They take your kids to kids paradise for lunch after activities, then stay for pool games and waterslides. Kids kept busy throughout day. Ours enjoyed evening more, guess because it more chilled, arts and crafts and games and shows and movies.
Entertainment - We enjoyed all the evening shows we saw and found the team to work very hard.
Pools - The main pool can be busy, with lots of people and entertainment happening. We not big on sitting by a pool all day. We went twice for couple of hours in late afternoon. We enjoyed the kids beach and kids paradise much more. We used the adult only pool whilst kids at kids club and enjoyed it. I don't see it becoming anything but a quiet adult pool. It by the Spa and high up on a cliff with infinity pool so will be unsafe for children and noisy for Spa guests. Everyone complaining about Main pool are probably right that it busy but until another pool is built then guests must just enjoy what else on offer like kids beach and paradise. There is so much to enjoy.
Transfers - I recommend you book direct with agent and have them not include transfer and then book one on hotels website. £82 return for private transfer which takes 60mins, £76 for coach one which takes 2 hours if included in package. It a no-brainer. Also look up day flights on Thomas cook flight website, then ask agent for those if you have small children and don't want to do night flights.
Staff - no complaints here - no bad service. Be polite, patient, friendly and you will be looked after.
I had wonderful time and think everyone looking for a child friendly hotel with lots of activities or just to relax will not regret booking.
TIP. - the whole bug thing....well if you drink lots of water, don't overeat and don't get sunstroke you will be fine. If your body isn't hydrated then it wont be able to fend off bugs.
I think the resort is well run, seeing it fully booked I was surprised how well it met my expectations.
