After booking this hotel only 1 week in advance of going I was looking forward to getting to the resort and relaxing with my wife and son for 10 days and was not disappointed. Getting from the airport to the hotel on the shuttle only took 25mins and upon arrival the check inn to get your wristband was quite quick so no sitting round ,all the staff at reception spoke real good English so event the broadest of accents could be understood. My room was only on the second floor so could walk to it however there is 4 lifts to use if needed. The rooms were very clean and tidy and were cleaned every day with fresh towels to use even the floors were moped and disinfected every day. The pool area and the hotel itself was also kept very clean more so than other hotels with more stars than this one the entertainment for the kids is second to none even though my son was to old to join the kids club lots of kids joined in and the girl who took care of them was very good at her job there was family games trough out the day for every one to get involved in and we did the entertainment guy was exhalent his job also making sure we all had a good time.
Some times the entertainment at night was just a little holiday park for me with bingo and alike but there was shows and bands on after that also we saw a comedian on one night and he if on again is not to be missed. The bar staff are really friendly and very quick to serve so not much time stood at the bar as all inclusive the drinks and branded but it was ok apart from the cocktails as they are from a cocktail vending machine behind the bar (don't ask) the Mojito tasted like mouth. The area is very accessible for disabled users and even a hoist at the side of the pool as for the food I can not give enough praise the breakfast was perfect from fruit to cooked every thing you could want with no waiting for a seat as large dining area dinner and lunch also spot on very large selection of food and if you like roast beef and Yorkshire puds well you wont be disappointed I was given nearly half a cow on my plate the choice for vegetarians isn't that good though but there is a selection for them. Drinks at the dining table is collected from the bar in the room and you can get large bottled water wine beer and pop for you table condiments also available if you want them. The staff in here are very quick to take away your plates how ever don't look happy if you waist food which is only right why should you put mountains of food on your plate when you can go back as many times as you like (TAKE WHAT YOU CAN EAT AND EAT WHAT YOU TAKE ). There are pool tables and tv rooms for the kids as well as games and pinball and a little park just outside for small children tennis and football courts over the road if you want them. I really can not find any faults with this hotel at all unlike my next review for a hotel I stopped in a week later please read my review on that one???? .To some up this a great hotel and under rated star wise if you are looking for a hotel next to the beach with no noise and something for every one this is it .
