“was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2011

cons- rooms are too small for a family of three. Singles bed were given to use and they were broken and the matteress were worn out. Pool is too small for the size of hotel. Certainly not a 4 starr hotel i would rate it 2 star. Bar wouldnt serve more than 2 drinks at a time.

Pros- food was good. kids club was excellent.

Stayed 9th-16th August ....looked a bit glum on arrival but how wrong we were! Staff fantastic from Reception to Chefs to waiters/waitresses, to bar staff to cleaning staff. What can I say? Entertainment Team brilliant, no pressure just great fun. children's club didn't use but looked superbly organised and safe for kids. Pool area always clean with Lifeguard on duty. During busy times get down to pool by 8.15am for 'doors opening' not to get a bed but to get a parasol. Burning hot and you really needed one. That is our only complaint. Not enough parasols. Food brilliant, loads on offer all the time....and for those who complain...come on how much can you eat? and if you want 'good ole british food' stay at home and cook your own! Definitely recommend this hotel. Oh and location brilliant. Get yourself a walk on the beach at night, turn right on the main street, down to the beach - sorted. Oh and I forgot to say, perfect hotel, location for those in wheelchairs.

Fantastic whatever your age. Brilliant food choices, unless your very very picky which it seems some of the people who have written reviews on here are. Max, Rosh and Lee and the rest of the entertainment team are absolutely fab and really made our holiday memorable.

Highly recommend this to anyone!!!!

Room Tip: Brilliant evening entertainment, make sure you give it a go.

Booked this hotel thru Thompson travel agency, and hoped for a good family vacation. Unfortunately this hotel was not as expected, threfore we after just one day got tranferred to another hotel, many thanks to the travel agency for organising the hotel change.

The restaurant was more like a school cafeteria and the food was awful, the hotel is very noisy and crowded, the wall are paper thin, the room was small and not clean, and the list goes on.......

We are a couple in our mid-40s with teenage kids of 19 and 13. Hotel looks a bit tired but is actually very good. The rooms are fine and clean. The food is very good - although rather too many "wobbly" deserts, but there is always something to have. Juan's omlettes are cooked in front of you and are a joy. Food quality is good. The all inclusive drinks are great. although we would have liked a list of what was available: only discovered we could have cocktails and sangria after a few days. The Entertainment team are great. "Bingo Bongo" is great fun - even for the non-bingo lovers. Some of the shows are hit and miss, but that is true anywhere. The pool is great - never had a problem getting loungers, although we tended to be there from 3 or 4pm, because the beach is just a few minutes walk and is terrific. The whole resort is a great place. If you like Karaoke, check out McTavish's from midnight - brilliant! Western Water Park, Marineland and Katmandu are well worth a visit. Overall we had a great time and would happily go back to this resort and this hotel. Well done!

Wow! This holiday was the best! The entertainment was perfect, and very, well...entertaining! The food was excellent, there was a wide range of choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The wide ranges of depths in the pool are brilliant! They are perfect for strong swimmers, children and people who just want to sit on the steps in the shade with there feet in the pool!
In my opinion, 10/10!

The hotel was brilliant!:) the entertainers were fantastic especially max rosy and Lee:) been going gothic hotel for the last five years and it's still just as good:) the food this year was not as good as previous and the fact u only selected foods to eat at lunch when u r ALL INCLUSIVE is a bit silly and the buffet outside got eaten by flies bur other than that it was ace:)

Room Tip: The rooms r not very modern but they r good and comfortable and a good size for 3 people:)
