We have just arrived back after spending a week in the holiday village! We have 2 children 4 and 11! We checked in without any problems! Rooms were a good size ,bathroom fab 2x showers and hand basins can sort 2 children at same time! Room could have been a little cleaner but by all means not dirty dirty although a little dated! Some of the bedding was as little thread bare and blankets were like army ones! If you want to watch tv Get a remote from reception! Rooms were cleaned every day without exception and fresh towels daily! You need to get a chitty from reception when you book in to get beach towels you get them downstairs at the spa and can change them twice a week don't loose them as you get a 15 euro fine!
Pools were fabulous not at all cold at the main pool although the big ones at beach club could be a little chilly! Spotlessly clean all around the pool areas and always plenty of sunbeds! We found a lovely spot near the beach club restaurant where the splash fountains were, Shallow pool for little ones and spotless toilets by the pool and not to mention the bar and restaurant right near. Perfect spot we could have spent everyday there!
Kids club........what can I say I could not fault the team! They were excellent with my 2 and they enjoyed everyone they attended! We did pay extra for two sessions but they were worth it! Both my children who weren't the best swimmers even after lots of lessons back home , attended daily swimming lessons with Chris! I thoroughly recommend him! He was great with them both and he kind of fast tracked them through their 5 lessons to the point where they have both come home able to swim I am so pleased as are they!
Food wasn't the best, not much choice for my picky pair! They lived on nuggets hot dogs And chips! Breakfast was faultless lots of choice! Restaurants can get busy but we never had to Que! You get the chance to eat at two different restaurants during the week! Italian was ok but the Mexican wasn't too good, more American food like burgers etc none of us enjoyed that! The beach club restaurant on a lunch time is worth the trail over the bridge it only takes 5-10 mins to walk depending on mobility!
Drinks were not the best but did the job! If you wanted a cocktail you need to ask for the drinks by name and not the actual cocktail as the bar staff are not allowed to do this ! My husband didn't enjoy the lager! The wine was ok!
The entertainment was good for the kids! The entertainment staff were friendly and good with the
We went to fengorola market on Tuesday taxi was 10 euros and an afternoon down at benalmedena harbour which was lovely and 11 euros in a taxi.
All in all we had a fabulous holiday and will be back again next year! Don't listen to the bad reports it's not perfect but with a few tweaks it could be!
