Stayed 1st week in June on AI basis for a very reasonable price. After arriving at 10.30pm did not expect any food to be available but to our surprise the sister hotel across the road had a variety available up to midnight, drinks were also available in the restaurant, staff couldn't do enough for us. We had 2 No rooms on the 3rd floor overlooking the childs pool and grassy area with sun beds, room 1 for 2 adults was plenty big enough, as others have mentioned bathroom tiny but we didn't think it was a problem. Room 2 for 1 adult, 1 teen and 1 5yr old was bigger, normally when 3rd person in room hotel just adds a 'put you up' but in this room there were 3 full beds and loads of room. Both rooms were very clean, cleaned and towels changed frequently.
In our opinion the higher rooms on the pool side are best, level 3 is fine, there are a small number of rooms on the 4th floor in the centre.
All meals were serve yourself with plenty of choice, there was always something to suit your taste, drinks were waiter service. We thought the restaurant was pleasant and roomy with plenty of staff and reasonably good quality food for a 3* hotel.
Bar and entertainment staff really went out of their way to keep you happy, some visiting acts in the evening were quite good. Other entertainment was available at the sister hotels but you can only get drinks in your own hotel ( unless you upgrade to AI gold, think it cost 15 Euros ). It wasn't a problem crossing the road and taking your drinks, sometimes it was quicker doing this than queuing at the bar in the busier hotel.
The pool area was quite spacious with grassy areas, shady spots and sunbeds, also plenty of tables and chairs outside local to the bar. Kids pool local to grassed area so you can keep a close watch when your children are swimming and splashing about.
Location of the hotel is perfect, just off the front main street and beach, approx. 5 mins walk, the beach is really nice and clean. Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants close by.
Overall we all had a great time, we didn't find any problems with any features of the hotel, all the staff, reception, restaurant, bar, entertainment team and even cleaning staff were really pleasant and helpfull, we definitely plan to return next year.
Forgot to mention, football games, volley ball, tennis and table tennis available free on site.
