Florida spa hotel, ignore the bad reviews
Booked with thomson platinum, the only bonus to this was the one bottle of water in the room on second day. Read some bad reviews of this hotel, but we found it clean, welcoming staff and food good, also a mix of ages (they are not just 60+ as others have reported).
My step daughter (age 17) is vegetarian including no fish but plenty of choice for her to have at breakfast and evening meal.
Hotel is 2 minutes from the beach which we used quite a few days.
On the beach Sun loungers and canopies between €3-€5 each for the day but worth it. Lots of Lucky Lucky men on the beach, but generally leave you along if firm with then. The pool has limited sun time due to buildings all around it, generally sun from about 11, then have to move about 5 onwards to stay in it.
Plenty of shops and restaurants on the door step and a promenade that goes on for ever. We ran most morning but need to run in shade so used the streets with shops on them far to hot on promenade even at 8am.
The entertainment is singers and probably aimed at adults, no children's entertainment which for me is a blessing as it's often repetitive. Happy hour till 10pm each evening with waitress/waiter service.
Room cleaners hit and miss, no bin emptied on first service and no replacement toiletries on others, but then done everyday after.
Would certainly use this hotel again, suited our needed of two 40+ adults and two teenagers (15 & 17).
