arrived back yesterday after a 2 week stay,the hotel is dated and in need of a refurb, as I unpacked the suitcases I had to wipe the sand off the wardrobe shelves before I could put my clothes away, there were also long hairs on the floor around the bed.
Our room was at the back of the hotel a few metres from the bus stop, I was constantly woke up at all hours from the coaches picking up and dropping off guests.
The food in the restaurant is not of poor quality, but evening meals seemed to be a mish mash of all sorts and I struggled to put a meal together, having said that, we didn't go hungry.
The pool area is a decent size but we needed to there at 8.30am to get a bed by swimming pool, the girl who monitors the reserving of sunbeds, doesn't enforce as she should,so the system doesn't really work.
The pool bar food is good and reasonably priced.
The beach is on the doorstep, but the sunbeds are 11.50 Euro and there is cigarette ends all around them, it was quite windy and the sea could be a bit choppy and I had to keep my child out of the sea with an airbed on quite few occasions.
Most of the staff are friendly enough but a few need to learn how to smile a bit more often.
The Thomson team were helpful and friendly and my child thoroughly enjoyed the activities in kids club.
Suzanne who does the mini disco,Bingo and pool volleyball is really nice and does her best to get everyone involved.
The shows in the hotel were OK at best and some were awful.
The resort does not have a lot going on and I thought lacked something, there is a bus stop outside the hotel and we went to Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa, both of which were better resorts, both for beach and facilities,all in all it was an "OK" holiday but I feel the hotel would only be a 2 star if it weren't for the fact it is on the beach. I would not return to the resort as I didn't think there was enough going on.
