As the saying goes you get what you pay for! I have stayed in 5* hotels in the Maldives and also 1* B&B's in Blackpool so when you book a 3 star in Spain its more like a 2 star in the UK. So here I go...............
Rooms - Very Basic but clean (what more do you want!) Cleaned every day we were there (1 week) We had booked 2 rooms, a 3 bed room and a single room. I would advise not to try and sleep 3 people in 1 room as 1 of the beds is a sofa bed. We were lucky that they were only 4 of us staying so we moved 1 of the 3 people to stay in the single room. All 3 beds would also be in just the 1 room and honestly I wouldn't even let a child sleep on that sofa bed. Just sitting on it was hard enough. there is no TV or anything like that in the room, you can hire 1 for 25e for the week but you will not really get any english clannels anyway - so save your money.
Food and Drink - The food is really good. I have had a lot worst in 5* hotels. There isn't as much choice as i have seen in different hotels but what there is is good. We went for breakfast a few times but this is quite poor - are breakfasts good anywhere in Spain? I like my British Sausages etc etc and you will not find that here! My advise would be stay in bed a few extra hours and just eat in the hotel for lunch and dinner.
There is also snacks alvailable all day. You will find cheese, meat, breads but thats about it! They could have done with putting a few different things on between meals.
From 10.30am until 7.45pm all drinks (apart from sprits) were self service @ the pool bar. San Magel, Sangra, soft drinks, Tea, Coffee etc etc which was great becasue there was no Q's. If you wanted wine or vodka etc you just had to get this from behind the bar.
The drinks are fantasic - no water in the vodka or beer here!
Entertainment - The pool area is super, best I have seen in Spain by a mile. Loads of stuff to do for the kids and adults in the day time with the entertainment team. Blow up water slide for the kids (5e for all day - I think thats really good!!!) Lots of sunbeds and green areas where you can sun bath like we did as we didn't have kids with us and wanted to get away from the noise at times.
Night time entertainment is good. Great for the kids with nearly 2 hours of games from around 8pm and then a show or bingo etc. Club closes at 12 @ night. The entertainment team really do work hard to make your holiday enjoyable. The entertainment manager has been there 25 years so that says something about how well its run.
You are 10 min walk from a lovely beach and 5 min to shops and bars, where there is also mini fun fairs, ponys etc for the kids. For the younger adults there is also bars open till 5am in the morning if you can last that long.
We traveled as a young couple and 2 people 40+ and we all really entoyed our stay. In fact we enjoyed it that much we are going back in Aug this year with 17 of us (adults and kids)
This review is a very true reading of what it really is like here, all the staff and holiday makers are really nice! If you get a good deal get it booked!
