Trawled through reviews and thought we were guaranteed a 4* experience overall unfortunately the poor food at every sitting and the waterpark being so cold it rendered it unusable meant we will not return. As a family of 5 children's ages 11 9 and 3 we used most facilities once. To begin with the room the beds were only changed on the day before we left and the sofa bed is not the most practical as its actually in 2 parts and meant it was a pain to constantly make up every evening as there was literally no room to leave it up throughout day. The 'high ropes' were not like any other at holiday villages and only ran 3 times throughout the week which as it consisted of jumping of a ledge was not exactly missed by the boys who expected a lot more. Initially i dismissed reviews of pools being freezing as a overreaction but as someone who used to swim in sea in Scotland even i could not bring myself to venture in the boys hired the floats for one day at €4 each plus €20 deposits went down slide once and did not use again as pool was so cold so do not take water park or highropes into account when booking as neither are very usable. The major concern is poor food after staying in holiday village Tenerife which is the best holiday we have ever had and a 3* hotel in Cyprus where the food was a pleasure to eat the lukewarm undercooked cheapest cuts of meat you could possibly find floating in coloured water which is signed as gravy and same cheap bland deserts every night were awful not once did we look forward to meal times and the Italian was just as bad Mexican better once my food was sent back to be reheated. The kids clubs were fantastic definitely the highlight of the holiday entertainment was likened to britains got talents worst bits. Overall this holiday village has just celebrated its 10 year anniversary and it definitely shows, a tired complex in need of overhaul especially on the catering side of things 4* hotel more like a 3* with the main elements ie meals falling way below standard.
