Have just returned from his hotel (we stayed from 1st-11th October) and felt compelled to write a review after seeing a few no too good reviews before I left.
First off, this is a 3 star hotel, if you go expecting 5 star luxury then yes, you'll be dissapointed. We paid a little over £300 for 9 days half board for the 2 of us!
When we arrived we were given a room in the taller tower on the 6th floor overlooking the resort. However I had emailed them prior to arriving to ask for a high floor sea view room. I went to reception where the man was very helpful, an offered us a room on the 15th floor overlooking the sea! The room itself was clean and had everything we needed. 2 single beds which we pushed together, flat sreen TV, air conditioning and a balcony with a table and 2 chairs. The decor was plain and perhaps in need of some freshening up but not offensive. The bathroom was spotless and the shower was very powerful which I love.
The food was very good for the price we paid. There was always a selection of fresh salad, plus at least 2 different meats, a fish option and of course chips! The desserts were a bit repetative but there was always fruit, yoghurt, some kind of cake and rice pudding or custard. The resturant was clean and the staff were friendly.
We particularly enjotyed the pool area, which is atop the smaller tower. The pool is a decent size. We found it a bit nippy when you first got in but if you can brave that then it's very pleasant! I liked that it wasn't crowded with sunbeds so you didn't feel like you were rubbing shoulders with the person next to you! The only thing was that I put money in the drinks machine to be told by the pool attendant that it was emply so I am 1.25 euro down!
There is a lack of stimulating entertainment at this hotel however that wasn't a concern for us as we went out and explored every night. The location of the hotel is spot-on! It can be a bit noisy at night due to it's location, so if you are particularly sensitive to that, perhaps you should look elsewhere. We were high enouh up for this not to be too much of an issue.
We would definitely stay here again!
