There are many positives - The staff are brilliant and cant do enough for you, gorgeous views, good variety of food and plenty of it, and lovely (but cold) pool. Water slides for the kids were great as well. However, I think that the building of this hotel has been rushed in order for it to open this year. Quality of workmanship not good, in our room there were several minor faults (not enough to really complain about - but there were faults)
Blind on one window was broken, smoke detector had no cover on it, tap near basin very wobbly and looked like it was going to break at any time plus one light switch was very 'iffy' sometimes it worked and sometimes not. This was also a feature around the hotel, tiles broken, beading around tiles missing etc.
And - The Steps - Felt like the North Face of the Eiger!!! It should really be stressed that this hotel is definitely not for anyone with walking difficulties as the lift is constantly breaking down. Also it was torrential rain one night and the only to the room was to go up the stairs, absolutely no cover, it was treacherous....
I really did not want to moan about the hotel, but it wasn't what I had hoped it would be.. Thomas Cook Style Collection - I think not.
Luckily we made the most of the holiday, and were able to get out and about with the Dolmush, but it is not a place I would be returning too.
