First up, in the interest of fairness, I should point out that this is a very good hotel if you have small kids. Our 4 year old loves the place and our 18 month old was well catered for. However, we have stayed twice now and are in a position to review the negatives which have occurred both times.
The Pros are as follows: Great facilities for kids, the main restaurant is very good, the pool area and changing rooms are clean and family friendly, free WiFi, the breakfast buffet is great.
The Cons: The bar food is DREADFUL. Staff quality is a bit hit and miss. The cleanliness of the room left a lot to be desired considering the hotel advertises as family friendly i.e. babies crawling around the floor. A lot of fittings both in the room and hotel itself need a bang of a handyman. A €75 surcharge for our 4 year old is WAY too steep, considering he was not covered on the inclusive dinner and you have to pay for many of the attractions for kids as well. There also seemed to be a shortage of staff in the outdoor part, but in fairness that could have just been on the day.
To summarise, if you have young kids, its a great hotel for a few days break. For everyone else, its above average but nothing special. There's a big jump in price between a 3 night and 4 night stay, which is a bit strange. If there had not been such a big difference they would have had our custom for an extra day. While you won't be disappointed with your stay its frustrating that a handful of easily fixable issues could make the hotel as good for adults as it is for children.
