After reading so many bad reviews was dreading the holiday, even on the coach to the airport I was thinking please don't be a dump!
But the outside was clean and tidy so things were looking up.
Inside the check in took awhile as the receptionist couldn't find the room we had booked through lowcostholidays, but as we had the paperwork he gave us a room. We had paid for a 2 bed apartment but was given a 1 room which was set up for 2 people and on the 13th floor, the view was of the sea and the apartment was quite roomy, it was also clean and well looked after.
We had a 2nd room booked with our party and that was a small studio with 2 single beds together and little more room but this overlooked the pool and again was clean, but this was on the 2nd floor, so a big difference luckily the daughter and her friend were both 16 so we didn't see this as a problem.
We did ask about the 2 bedroom apartment and was offered 1 on the 4th floor, this was very roomy with a balcony overlooking the front entrance and it also overlooked the sea, we choose to stop in the 13th floor room.
Meals although the buffet area isn't massive the food was always well cooked was tasty and warm. You had a choice of about 4 different main things but don't expect the same choice regarding pudding. We only had bacon on the Tuesday but it was abit salty, which they tended to put on the potatoes a lot of too.
The staff aren't overly friendly but they weren't rude or anything. The maid doesn't come on Thurs or Sun.
The all inclusive was supposed to finish at midday on the last day but we still got drinks and food till we left at 5pm. Drinks were supposed to be 1 per person and per wristband, but we were going up for each other and they were happy to give you a drink at the end (11pm) to take to your room.
Visit the rooftop terrace for some more views etc.
The only fault is no air conditioning and the lifts (there are 3) are very slow.
All in all we had a great holiday, get your sunbed early as they are always gone by half nine/ten.
Although we would go to the hotel again we wouldn't as there are just too many steps around the resort, shops are also wide spread.
Catch the Land train from just up the street and a bus to the aqualand cost the 4 of us 10.80 euros return.
Wifi it is 20euros for 1 device for the 7 days and I think it was 6euros for a day. We asked as we had the 2 girls who wanted to use their phones and so we paid for the 7 day package which cost 27euros for upto 5 items, and this can be used all over the place as there are 1200 hotspots, it is also valid for 2 years so unless you use it everyday (like the 2 girls did) you can use it for your next hols and according to the leaflet it works in any of the Canary islands.
