I loved this place, big plus for me is its over 16yrs old so made it very relaxing and quiet, I managed to read 6 books in 5 days! If you want to party this is not the place for you !
I took my daughter to relax after her exams, she is 16 and loved not having to do ANYTHING! The roof pool was the highlight really. We didn't have any problem getting a bed, in fact we had one each, but at weekends its busier with Spanish coming for a break, so is harder to get a bed. You are not meant to reserve beds, everyone still does, sometimes the staff removed the towels other times they didn't bother. Didn't affect us as we didn't move from 10am-6pm!
Food was ok, nothing special but always something to eat, the rooftop food was much better than the restaurant.
Rooms were clean and tidy, we had a sea view, but only if we craned our necks, not bothered though as so little time spent in the room or on balcony.
Gym was perfect, Im a personal trainer so want a good gym with good equipment, this fitted the bill 100%, in fact I think it was better than my own local gym.
Didn't use the spa but looked nice.
Staff were perfectly nice to us.
My only real negative is the cost of water in the bars, they charge a small fortune for a small bottle and then wonder why people go to the sports bar where you get a large bottle for just over a euro. Small gripe!
Would definitely go back and would definitely recommend to friends, but only if you want a relaxing holiday.
Free Wi-Fi all over the hotel is fab.
