We spent eight nights in this hotel on an all inclusive basis and had holiday of a lifetime.
This is a magnificent hotel for families with young children.
The hotel is big, spacious and very clean. Our apartment was located on the 3rd floor - right beside the shop, lifts and stairs to the restaurant, snackbar, beny's bar, mini club and the pools. Our two bedroom apartment consisted of two bedrooms, each with two single beds joined together and good wardrobe space with mirrored doors (appreciated by the girls!) Two bathrooms, shower and bath. Kitchen area with sofa that could be used a sofa bed also and a balcony. Our room overlooked the side/back gardens but was a pleasant view. Very big apartment - we liked the space.
Food and drinks (local alcohol) were included in our deal and the food was divine. Huge selection at buffet in restaurant daily. Breakfast - cereal, decent coffee machines, bacon, sausages, eggs, pastries, ham, cheese, all juices - delicious. Lunch - we ate at outdoor snackbar - this had a menu consisting of burgers, toasties, pizza, chips, salad - again delicious!! Dinner - again restaurant buffet, vast selection - my children had soup, rolls, then noodles, meat of day or fish and lots of desserts!! Was wary of going all inclusive incase food was repetitive or not nice but it surpassed our expectations. (My girls are 5 and 2 and can be quite fussy as children are, but they loved everything they ate!!)
Entertainment wise, the hotel again excelled. The highlight for us was the entertainment staff, Laura, Nadia & Sandra at the Mini Club and Tad for evening entertainment. There was tears when we said our goodbyes! The mini club was amazing - these girls naturally love children and had patience and attention for each child that came in. We spent a good bit of time here, colouring in, playing in outdoor park, face painting and had great fun. Every night at 8pm, the mini disco for the chidren is on in bar. They dance, play games, with winner getting certificate!, and then at the end Beny arrives. The children adore Beny and it makes your holiday seeing the happiness on their little faces. All the while, the parents can have a drink and watch their children. Then its bingo and every night a different entertainment show, which everyone stayed up for with the children. There was a magician, reptile show, birds of prey show, Adele tribute, Motown, Flamenco show - brilliant! No need to leave hotel for night entertainment. A true family resort.
During the day there are two outdoor pools, indoor pool and jacuzzi, rifle shooting, archery, mini golf, tennis. Beach towels can be rented at hotel to save taking your own. The beach is a five minute walk away. The bus 120 just round corner from hotel goes to Malaga for 1 euro 60 and takes from 30 minutes to 1hr depending on traffic. There is so much to do at hotel.
The staff in restaurant and snackbars were so obliging and friendly, Carmen in particular, as were the entertainment staff mentioned. A massive thanks to everyone for making our holiday magnificent. I would highly recommend this hotel to any family with young children, perhaps up to about 9/10. Will be returning.
Note: we booked all inclusive for 8 nights 2 adults and 2 children through hotels4u for less than £1,000 (flights not included) and was a bargain.
