Just arrived back with my girlfriend (both 19) from a great holiday. This hotel is a very well clean and maintained hotel staff work very hard, pool area is great plenty of sunbeds and the pools are very clean! There's always food on through out the day so you never go hungry, but you do have to serve yourself for soft drinks and beer which isn't to bad I guess. The entertainment are fantastic especially the male one whos really funny, best hotel entertainment I've ever been too, always games to do through the day and at night is really good perfect for pre drinks before going out! I must say there is a very small amount of kids there it's more of a adult hotel full of couples which we prefer anyway. Food was average very mixed variety of food but food at all inclusive is never great anyway, room cleaned every day and very well.
Round the area is great Irish center is short walk away which has few great bars and kasbah only 10 minute walk away but only go there if your going out to get drunk because it's very lively, yumbo is only 3 euros in a taxi which is very good family area with plenty of shops and resturants and chill out bars also casino next to it!
All in all it was a great holiday and would recommend people to go to this hotel if not the hotel go to playa del ingles it's a great place with loads to do.

Just arrived back. Was very impressed all holiday , food, location , entertainment and staff all fab . Thumbs up to reburto. Unfortunately my friends had there all inclusive bands chopped off on the last day even though they only arrived at 9.00pm on there first night. So they basically lost a full day off all inclusive. They were left with no money food or water from 12am- 10pm. Manager was extremely rude to them. Overall good stay but on the basis off the managers rude behaviour we will not be returning like planned.

Hotel was ok, had to fight for a sunlounger on a morning if you weren't first you didn't get one or were stuck in the shade. Restaurant staff are rude will take your plate away if your finished eating even if the rest of the family are still eating which to me is really rude. Rooms were clean and tidy, no air con, safe anf fridges to rent.

Anyone who says anything bad about this hotel must be mad! I stayed for 14 nights with my boyfriend (both 19) and we had an amazing holiday! Reception staff are very friendly and helpful upon arrival and always helped out when we needed them. Cleaners are brilliant and kept the whole hotel spotless. Waiters were friendly and cleared the plates quickly which was good. There was also plenty of food and different choices everyday. Breakfast was a bit repetitive but didn't expect anything more than that.
The pool area is lovely and has loads of sunbeds, so as long as your down before 9 you will get a spot in the sun no problem.
The entertainment staff were brilliant, guy called Simon joined in and ran all of the water activities and a blonde curly haired woman held all the evening entertainment and she was excellent!! Weather was boiling so was nice to get into a cold pool to cool off! There is a bus stop just round the corner and plenty of supermarkets nearby.
I also read reviews about there being loads of older people and German people but have no idea what that was about, it's is completely varied!
There is a restaraunt overlooking the sea behind the bus stop which is a must, food and service is amazing!
Overall the hotel was perfect and should have been a 4* if not 5!!
The only downfall was no aircon and no fridge which you could pay for if you really needed it.
Also the resort was a bit scattered around. There wasn't really a main tourist area so you have to walk around to find places.
Athough this hotel didn't have a modern feel to it, it was absolutely perfect and gave us the most amazing holiday!!

Good holiday went with 3 friends all aged 22, Hotel is very clean, staff are always smiling and willing to help plenty of activities and things to do during the day and always found something I wanted to eat always enough choice, rooms we're always clean only downfall is the fact there is no air con which isn't too bad because you can open balcony door, but if your at the road side it does get very noisy if you leave it open all night, one disappointing thing for me about the rooms was there was no fridge so if you brought water or anything back to have while your in your room they didn't last long but that's the worst thing I could probably say about this hotel everything else was great really enjoyed it, I would say it's more of a couples hotel though rather then groups of friends there was a lot of young couples when I went and if I went back I think I would rather go with my partner.
