Booked this last minute and was happy with the price we paid for all inclusive. Travelled with a 2 year old and an 8 year old.
We were upgraded to a superior room after eventually being able to check in. Room was pleasant enough but was small, so would have liked to have seen the standard room!
We quickly realised that the hotel was mainly occupied by Spanish pensioners. Not that much of an issue until you realise that they believe they have more of a right to their holiday than you have to yours. They really seem to not even acknowledge your presence, and clearly believe they have a priority to lifts, dining queues etc. We were one of two other British families and was expecting some entertainment for the kids. There was nothing! Due to this we spent most of our time away from the hotel. There is a Spanish bar called fordies in the next street which is friendly and cheap and the food is lovely. There is a British pub called the rovers return just down the street and the main shopping area with bars, restaurants and the beautiful beach is a 10 minute walk from this hotel.
I imagine this hotel would be totally different in the summer months. It has two big pools, a play area and an arcade. Be aware that there is a bar in the hotel called the apple bar which opens until 0100. Totally fine if your in there enjoying yourself not great if your room is directly above it and your trying to get your kids off to sleep.
Would we return to this hotel...possibly but never in April!
