We stayed here from 30th June - 6th July 2014 and couldn't fault it. I think we were lucky as our transfer time was only an hour and when we arrived at 5am we were checked in very quickly. We were given a room on the first floor and although it was clean, it was a little dated. We asked if it would be possible to move to a room on a higher floor as we'd heard these were the ones that had been refurbished. They were able to move us the following morning and we were placed at the end of the corridor on the 5th floor which meant we had both a street view with the mountains in the background and a view of the sea. The rooms were really nice and modern and the bathroom had a far more powerful shower than the previous bathroom. A basic hairdryer was also in all the bathrooms. Rooms were cleaned daily and towels were replaced each day without asking. There was a mini fridge which was good for keeping drinks cool and a television which had all the British Freeview channels (both were free). The air conditioning was also free and the safe was around 15 euros for the week.
The food choice was excellent and I thought it was really tasty, with a lot of different buffet options each day. There were cooked breakfast options, fresh fruit, pastries, toast and cereal for breakfast and soups, main meals, salads and excellent dessert ranges at both lunch and dinner. You helped yourself to wine, beer and soft drinks at meal times and could take the wine bottle to the table, if you wished. The all inclusive drinks selection at the bar was was excellent, with flavoured vodka, cocktails and slush puppies all included. Bar service was quick and the spirit measures were VERY generous! They would give you your drink in a glass if you were staying inside or sitting on the terrace or in a plastic cup if you were around the sunbeds and the pool area. You could also take drinks to your room from the bar, in plastic cups. There was also a freezer with ice lollies, cornettos and magnums that you could help yourself to all day and wee cakes and sandwiches were served at specific times. It would be impossible to go hungry here!
There were some activities during the day and I enjoyed the shooting and archery. There is also a small play park for children and the pool is quite deep (although there is a shallow, separate section). We didn't pay much attention to the night time entertainment and were quite happy either going out or just sitting on the terrace enjoying some drinks.
We put our towels on sunbeds at about 8.30am each day and there were still some left until the back of 9; good if you are getting up for breakfast anyway but not so good if you wanted a long lie (although this didn't affect us).
The free wi-fi worked well both in our room and by the pool and there is the option to book trips via the Thomson reps in the lobby (although we never used this service). There is also the option to buy British newspapers from reception and you can get postcards and stamps from them too.
The beach and shops are a 5 - 10min walk, depending on your pace and the little train that goes around the resort stops just outside the hotel. It costs 3 euros each and is a nice little excursion.
Guests were a mixture of couples, both older and younger and families, although everyone was British. All in all, for the price we paid it was outstanding value and I would recommend it to others.
