We stayed here for a week with our kids age 2 & 10.
First the good points: the pools are fab, clean and plenty of sun beds. Also manned by life guards which was good. The staff were all friendly and helpful (apart from check in staff) and work really hard. The rooms were cleaned daily, a bit small and dated but generally ok. The hotel is walking distance to the beach, paloma park and the marina which was really good.
The bad points: the food was terrible, very little choice unless you like plain pasta, salad, fried food and chips for every meal. Also the timings were late when you have little ones, lunch at 1.30 and dinner didnt start until 7.30pm which isnt great with a toddler! We ate out every night because of this and the lack of variety.
There was no air con so it was red hot at night, when we enquired the reception staff said it hadnt been turned on yet but it was on in the restaurant. I know its a little early in the season but if its hot its hot!!
The entertainment was good but as others have said started too late for the kids at 9.30pm I think it could do with being on earlier so the younger ones can enjoy it more.
There isnt an iron in the room or to borrow which I know isnt a deal breaker but I havent been to a 4* that doesnt have this.
Overall this is more of a 3* hotel I would return but only if we got a cheap deal again purely for the pool scene and the location and wouldnt go all inclusive due to lack of variety.
