Before you say here is another bad review - think again. This hotel is worthy of its 4 stars and its reputation for cleanliness, high standard of staff service and the quality of food served in its restaurant. The rooms are fine and the view from the gym/spa room is lovely as you sweat buckets in the sauna and steam room. The location for the beach is close and plenty of shops to buy things. The food was excellent and the quality superb.
BUT.........there is a a couple of facts you need to consider before you book.
If you are a couple who are in the later years of your precious time, this place is fantastic. If you are German, even better as you will have many people to chat to around the hotel. If you have children like my daughter who is 7, a little disappointing. The hotel caters for many and you can't please everyone. I would like to write this in the mind of my little girl. She says that the pool is great but got told not to splash too much as it will annoy the people laying on the sunbeds. The table tennis was free and got used alot but as there were not many children around, she got bored. We did as much as we could to entertain but she needed like minded people who want to play and chat in a like minded way ( I mean children). The pool table might have got used but at 1 euro 50 a game - a bit steep. The hotel is very close to a lovely beach but beware where you walk as there is a nudist area ( for those offended by the old birthday suit). If you have a room facing towards the road, you might enjoy the loud music being played in the Poker bar which is attached to the Hotel ( but you can't use your all inclusive wristband to get a drink). The entertainment provided in the hotel bar was really great - especially the drag act and the guitarist who plays great rock music- but over a week, 3 nights of entertainment was a bit sparce. It would have been nice if there was a selection of games that we could have used but we couldn't see any.
As my daughter said, lovely time but if the weather was bad, things would have been difficult. I am just glad that she was not too demanding and made her own fun in the pool (but no splashing). I hope reading this has not put you off considering this hotel but look further if you want your kids to get the full enjoyment factor from their stay.
