Experience the Sun Village for what it is and mingle with decent, like minded European holiday makers. This place is for people who appreciate relaxation, good food and general quality down time with their famiiles.
The hotel is immaculate and I really have no clue as to why the last set of photo's were uploaded showing not so nice stuff as we only saw cleanliness and general pride in the hotel.
We had Monkfish, Salmon, Duck, steaks, Pork, Chicken and a multitude of local Spanish dishes. Fruit and tasty salads are abundant with plenty of choice for everyone including a surprising amount of veggie options. Puds are a bit ropey and boring though in fairness.
As with most all-inc hols, timing is key when dining as the food does cool down until it is replaced by hotter refreshed trays.
You can go and get a bottle of unopened wine (Red, White, or Rose) or water to drink with your meal which seems much more civilised than the other all-inc jobs on offer.
Reviewers have mentioned the 1 euro deposit for a plastic glass issue. What a brilliant idea...no masses of empty glasses left lying around attracting wasps etc. If you want to order the extra 6 glasses of wine at closing time then buy more tokens (they are refunded whenever you want)....simple as.
If you fancy a good gripe about being in a foreign country where nothing is English and everyone is biased against you then please don't go abroad in the first place or even come here. Stay at home or holiday where everything is chips, cheap beer and shots, fights, rough copulation and ingerrrland ingerrrland ingerrrland until 4 in the morning (not necessarily in that order).
I was a bit embarrassed by the few English people that moaned and moaned about the beer only being Amstell and the wine tasting nothing like their usual Echo Falls (genuinely heard that). Also if you want to get shot of the kids to the animation, think again as it's awful and so is the so-called disco (really really cringey)
Bar shuts at 11, again another master stroke to keep the divs away. We are a family of 6 and felt that hitting the hay at around midnight was late enough. My first ever holiday where I've made every breakfast and had a whole day in the sun.
Female staff are pretty surly at times compared to the men. They do really enjoy saying NO to you at exactly 11 when you want a last drink, I just paid the 3 euro for a grand beer and shuffled off .
All in all a great venue that caters for nice people that don't need a tribe behind them to enjoy.
Take a plastic credit style card as the rooms cut the lekky when you are out which makes charging phones and keeping the in room fridge cold impossible.....wait until your room is cleaned and pop your plastic card in before you go out and hey presto things are charged and cold when you get back.
Slightly irritating though is the fact that after breakfast at 10 you can't get anything until 11 from the bar or restaurant as everything is unmanned and turned off.
