We stayed here last week of May, first week of June me hubby and three kids 4, 7 and 13, and i can fully agree with the previous comments. i was totally surprised that Thomson would send families to a hotel that appears to take bookings of anyone with money! to give a group of 30 lads all inclusive, the let them set up camp at the pool bar is disgraceful.. it was intimadating going to the bar, and the language was colourful to say the least!
Food was good for adults, not so for kids, my lot had soggy chips most mealtimes, but they are fussy. rooms were clean, we had two rooms, mine slept two, and was tiny with the smallest balcony ever. we had a nice sea view which we couldn't see if we sat down as our balcony wall was concrete. Cardiac hill is not so bad, but the road at the bottom is very busy. I didn't really rate the resort, torremolinos nearby is much nicer and cleaner.
Oh and how can i forget the spanish kids football tournament teams that were staying there? loads of them!!! it was like school dinner times when they were in the restaurant, they were noisy, rude, and really they shouldn't have been there in my opinion. There behaviour at the pool was awful too, you couldn't get in while they were all in. 50+ school kids in a not very big pool, trying to drown each other and dive bombing. the poor lifeguard had his work cut out!
Evening entertainment consisted of a mini disco, same 5 or 6 songs every night, the longest game of bingo ever, and the hotel team putting on shows. some bad, some ok.
They had a few outside acts come in as well. If your there for fusion 1 go out, the worst dance act i've ever seen!
I'd heard good stories about Bali from family and friends, but it appears to have gone downhill from when they stayed. I wouldn't go back.
