I've just returned from a family holiday at this hotel and we all had an excellent time. We stayed on an all-inclusive basis.
The standard of food at the hotel is very good with a comprehensive choice of salads and hot dishes that will, in my view, suit most tastes.
The pool is tremendous and the 2 children and 1 infant in our party made full use of it every day. There is always at least one vigilant lifeguard on duty which impressed me greatly.
There is a full programme of events and entertainment (get involved in the water polo with Mario as it is great fun!) each day for both kids and adults. The play area for kids is very good and my daughter (almost 2 years old) loved going in after lunch. There is a supervised kids club which seemed to be very popular. This hotel caters well for families and couples/larger adult groups very well.
The bar service is not great but this won't spoil a break for anyone. You sometimes have to wait for service even when there's no other customers. I've read this may be worse for all-inclusive guests but I didn't find this to be the case, instead I simply thought it wasn't good all-round for everyone. Don't let this put you off as there's a great atmosphere and you'll enjoy being here.
The rooms are a good size although we had a cot in the bedroom with twin beds (with a child on the sofa bed in the lounge area) so we struggled for space. If we'd been able to have the cot in the lounge areas it'd have been fine. If you're travelling as a couple with 2 kids who can share the lounge there'll be no issues around space.
The hotel is at the top of a fairly steep incline so if you have mobility issues you may struggle. If you have a baby in a pushchair it's not too hard if you're reasonably healthy. I walked it a few times whilst getting my daughter to sleep or going out.
In summary I would recommend this hotel for families, couples or larger adult groups. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and wouldn't hesitate to return.
