We have just returned from a weeks holiday at this hotel and would thoroughly recommend it for families with young children. I travelled with my Mum, 3 year old daughter and 8 month old twins. We booked through Thomas Cook and for £50 extra got a two bedroom bungalow which was without doubt worth doing, we had bags of space. Although an all-inclusive resort all the accommodation are bungalows which are set up for self catering, so you have a microwave, kettle, toaster etc.... Which was fantastic. For anyone else with babies the Avent microwave steriliser fits in the microwave too there which is a plus! They supplied us with 2 cots included ( some hotels would only provide 1, you have to pay for extra) and I did take sheets for the babies having previous experience of unclean bedding etc in babies cots but didnt use them as everything was immaculate!
There are also sunbeds and a patio table and chairs outside every bungalow so you can enjoy the sun whilst babies/toddlers take a nap which we found really great.
The hotel staff could not have been more friendly and so were the Thomas Cook reps and kids club staff. I was dubious about sending my 3 year old to a kids club, worrying she was too young to be left on holiday, however when I got there I had no doubts and we could not keep her away from there, she loved it!
The food was really good, fresh meats and fish grilled daily, salads, all sorts of dishes to chose from and the chefs were always there to help and preparing food. Throughout the week we had a Mexican night, Chinese night, bbq- which was brilliant and you could also eat once at the Italian ala carte they have set up, so you can't really complain about food being repeated. The rest of the food was mainly Spanish and all very tasty! Lots of high chairs too, as I said we have twins and there were always high chairs available for us. Apparently you can ask for baby food to be puréed for you here but the Chef didnt quite understand what I meant when I was asking so we just squished everything with a fork and got along fine - there was always something soft available and the babies loved all the fresh fruit there.
Everywhere felt very safe, clean and it was very easy to get around at the hotel.
The only downside for us was that the area around the hotel is very built up and not very ( not quite sure how to put this in a polite way!) scenic?! However if you are just looking for a relaxing week in the sun, in a safe environment for kids and happy to stay around the hotel this place is perfect. There are lots of trips on offer too and of course you could hire a car to see more of the island, we didnt do this in the end as we had such a good time at the resort.
Have to say a big thank you to the most lovely lady at the hotel reception, the main kids club guy - who was fantastic with the kids and the timeshare rep who was so helpful and even helped carry one of my twins on to the plane! I'm just sorry I'm rubbish with names!
