“Good hotel, professional service!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Very good hotel overall! Very nice pool, close to the beach and in a quiet area. Is only 5 minutes by taxi to playa del ingles.

We spent 7 days in september in a all inclusive and we really enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly and professional. Food and drinks really good.

Is not definitely a 5 star hotel but the rooms are comfortable and clean.

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

Have just spent my second holiday at this hotel. Absolutely love it. The hotel organized transport to and from the airport, which actually arrived both times - and everything in the hotel was perfect. The room was cleaned every day to a high standard. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The pool area was always kept clean, and whilst the chairs are a tad too close together if there are a lot of people there, the sunbeds are plentiful and we were able to spread ourselves out. My family had half board - the dinners were excellent with fresh food made to a high standard, as were the breakfasts. I thoroughly enjoyed the aqua aerobics every morning, and there were stretch/yoga classes in the shade in the gardens for those who wanted it. I can highly recommend this hotel for a week getaway in the sun. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the car park and road - perhaps a sea facing room would have been better b...

Have been back home for two weeks, and our weeks stay was great. We were on an RCI Exchange and the apartments on the 6th floor were excellent. Towels changed every day and apartment cleaned every day. Pool and gardens were excellent and the food in the pool bar was very good.
We used the courtesy room for a shower before we left the hotel in the early evening and would certainly agree that the "hotel" rooms could do with an upgrade. All in all a great holiday.

Room Tip: Lower floors not to much of an outlook over the gardens and pool.

This is our second visit to this hotel, if you want a relaxing week/2weeks in the sun this is the hotel for you has everything great food, plenty of choice, plenty of food is cooked fresh in front if you. Great entertainment, beach on the doors of the hotel. The only thing which is a real shame is the Casio has recently been removed from the hotel. This was removed from the hotel in October 2013 which is a real shame as I loved going down there just for a couple of hours of fun and enjoyment. Many of our friends have commented regarding this being removed as I feel is was a great asset to the hotel. I would say the drinks are expensive if your a big drinker so if recommend going all inclusive as everything is then included. Rooms are clean and tidy. Mini bar is refilled every day with fresh water, coke, fanta and beers. Reception staff can't be helpful enough. You can even have your English newspaper delivered to your door which is fab as the local shop sell out of these by early morning, Will be coming back again in October. The pools are nice and have plenty of sun beds. Love the gym facilities which are open early morning and close late evening. Spa is amazing had my nails done back massage and a facial worth booking this on the day of arrival as can get booked up quickly. A very enjoyable relaxing holiday, can't wait to go back again.

Spent one week here end March 2014...
As always "It´s all about people" especially those at the restaurants, from breakfast to pool area.
I´ll be back!
It´s important to keep the area around the hotel building in this good shape, i.e the park...
Also good with the Hi-Fi service at the hotel

This hotel was fabulous. Superb breakfast selections including Cava/Champagne when you walked in. The pools were excellent and heated and the sun bed areas were great and not busy. Rooms were very good and clean. Great that the hotel had a squash court, but the rackets need new grips. The tennis courts were under repair although we didnt see any work all week. 10 min walk to the main town restaurant complex and the food was very good in all of the places we ate. Lovely walk all along the seafront, took an hour to get to the bigger resort so quite a way, but well worth it once. Would recommend the hotel and resort for those wanting a relaxing week away.

Together with my wife had a getaway, looking for relaxing. The hotel after all met our expectations, very good service, excelent location and beautiful garden. The rooms although need an upgrade in order to meet 5star level. Staff really very friendly and the entertainment team did a good job"thanks Vanessa". Family friendly hotel and good mixture of guests regarding age. If you want a relax holiday this time of the year is great and if you want more fun - try to visit the island in the summer months - more activities and more options for fun.
