Wouldn't visit again!
Visited as a group of 5 girl friends for 5 nights in July. Check in was easy and efficient. We were given rooms with joining doors which were nice. Rooms were very basic. Shower ridiculously small. Little balcony was nice.
Other than the average room there's not too much more to add. The hotel seems to lack any kind of atmosphere. There animation team don't seem fully engaged and other than the occasional game of water polo or Aqua Gym there wasn't very much happening.
Breakfast was possibly one of the worst breakfasts I've had abroad. Not a great deal of choice and I ended up just having a croissant every morning. Very repetitive.
Hotel location isn't fantastic either. Near a few restaurants but most seemed to be closed until august for some reason? Head to the beach for some decent restaurants. Beach is about a 30 minute walk.
Transfers from airport took about 1hr 15.
Booked an excursion camel trip approx €35 each. Nice day out. Hour camel ride and a BBQ.
Limited sunbeds and some days there weren't enough for all the guests. Pool cold.
This is the first negative review I have written. Hotel was average but I would most definitely not visit again
