Just returned from a weeks stay.
TRANSFER: We booked speedy shuttle. Struck gold and had our own transfer on way there and took about 30/40 mins. On a coach on the way back and took almost 2 hours. Spoke to others and some had endured 3 hour transfers. My advice would be get a taxi from the airport or book your own transfer.
HOTEL: The majority of staff were very nice. One very rude lady on reception. But who really cares. I was expecting the room to be basic and small and it was but size wise fine for a week. We had a garden view room which is quieter than a pool view at night. Rooms are warm but ceiling fan does help. We also took our own with us. They are available to rent. Bathroom a bit manky and I can't say I found the room cleaning great. I don't think they swept the floors during our stay or changed the bed covers. I complained but made no difference. Ended up taking towels from the maids trolley as they don't seem to replace the ones you want changing too readily.
I thought the cleaning of public areas (pool toilets mainly) was poor. They were gross and without toilet roll by the afternoon and no one seemed to notice.
The pools were fab! Shallow to start and ideal for kids. Best thing about the hotel. Lillos and large inflatables only allowed in first pool.
Kids club - No info on this at all unless you can read German. When I enquired at reception they told me to read the panel. I can't read German! Activities poolside for kids and adults but it's hard to understand what they're saying and I found (improved on my last day) a general lack of info 're activities. The mini disco is at 8.30pm nightly in the show bar. Younger kids will love it. Entertainment at 10pm nightly in show bar and is shockingly awful. Comedy show dreadful. Some external dancers came in one night and that was really good. Otherwise all in-house and poor. There is bingo and singers etc in another bar but I didn't go there so can't comment. Towards the end of our stay I discovered they do kids activities like face painting and t shirt printing etc at the brown hut house by the sandpit. So look out for that.
The food is ok. Nice salads and lots of choice. Lots of bread and rolls and superb melon. Pizzeria great for pasta at lunch. It's no dining experience but you won't starve. Snack is bread, pate, cheese and ham. Some salad.
The drinks are good. Pepsi, 7 up , San Miguel. Help yourself to soft drinks 's all day from 10am. Cocktails and local spirit's included. Their Malibu and Bailey's is great. Couldn't tell the difference.
The beach is 8 mins away. Small and crowded. There is a tourist train that does the rounds of the hotels so you can get it there and back but it really is a short walk.
WiFi €1 for 20 mins at hotel.
Porto cristo has a much better beach so recommend a boat trip there. Restaurants in Porto cristo were really cheap.
Small town by hotel with restaurants etc.
Get up early (by 7am) to get poolside sunbed.
All in all, we had a good time but I'm glad I wasn't there for a fortnight. If you haven't got kids, this is not for you. Get a cheap deal (try hotel direct) and go for it. Your kids will love the pools. Best pools I've ever seen.
