We have just spent 11 nights at this hotel and would highly recommend this place to anyone!
Whether it is a peaceful and relaxing break or a lively fun filled one that suits you more this place can cater for you.
There are three main points of note at the hotel, accomodation, food and entertainment.
The room we had was spacious, light and air conditioned. The room did its purpose which was to sleep in and shower in! We had a nice sized balcony even being on the top floor (the balconies on the ground floor are about twice the size of those on the top floor) but even though we applied for a room with a sea view we were facing the completely wrong way and instead had a view of the tennis court and some houses across the road.
The food is amazing at this place! We were quite concerned before we left the uk due to all the reviews on here stating that all the restaurant was "pork,pork and more pork." this is not the case. Each night there is a choice of three different meats all cooked in different ways, accompanied by a wide selection of vegetables, salads and breads. Monday's Wednesday's and Friday's are theme nights these include, gala night, Chinese night, American night and majorca night. On these nights the staff all dress up in the appropriate themed clothes and the food is changed to accompany the theme. A note must go to the staff in the restaurant who are always running around to fulfil any need you may have whilst dining, although they do like to whip your plate away pretty quick after you've finished. A special note goes to Pedro who you will meet and never forget!
I cannot leave the food section without mentioning the puddings! Each night there are no less than 12 puddings to choose from, plus 5 choices of fruit, plus 5 jellies, plus 4 ice creams, and to top it all off a selection of toppings and sauces! If that cannot please you nothing will!
I must first give a big note to the Ent team: Deano, Stacy and Christine who, as everyone else has mentioned, work extremely hard to make sure you have fun on your holiday!
The daytime routine consists of activities running from 11am -4pm beginning with a dancey sort of thing in the pool and includes sports such as boules, connect four and shuffle board throughout the day, culminating with water volleyball in the pool at 3 followed by a daily general knowledge quiz in which you have the chance to win a bottle of bubbly! You do not have to take part in anything if you don't want to and the team respect your wishes if you wish to just relax in peace.
The evenings entertainment start at 8:30 with another quiz usually tv theme tunes or a music quiz of some sort. At 9:15 the resident music duo Jango sing a few songs, followed by bingo at 9:45 and at 10:00 the evenings main attraction begins: this is of varying standards and styles. One night we had a Phil Collins tribute act with a Spanish accent (he did sound like Collins but only if he had been from Barcelona) another night we had a touring group doing songs from movies, and Tuesday nights are 'uk comedian nights' but don't be expecting Peter Kay to turn, the two we saw were old time cabaret performers and one of them - Peter Piper, who everyone seemed to love, just condensed the whole of Lee Evans' career into an hour long show having no original material of his own!
The only negative point I would give about the entertainment is that it is not aimed at all ages. Myself and my girlfriend are in our early 20's and although most of the guests at the hotel are 50+ there were a lot of younger people ie 18-30 year olds. All of the music quizzes in the evenings are using songs that we had never heard of and tv themes from shows that had been cancelled by the time we were born. One quiz was an advert quiz and we were told that there would be some recent ones in there- the most recent one was Howard the Halifax man - not been shown for nearly 10 years, all of the rest were from the 80's! The entertainment Team offer a great range of activities but they do need to offer something for the younger guests of the hotel.
After all this I will go back to my first sentence and say that I would recommend this hotel to anyone, this is a lovely hotel, with welcoming staff and excellent surroundings. Very close to the beach, very close to the bus stop that can take you anywhere on the island, and very close to a row of shops should you need them!
