This is a really lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. The resort itself is very quiet with just a few shops and bars however it is only a short bus or taxi ride away if you want more hustle and bustle.
The hotel is certainly one of the cleanest I have ever stayed at. The staff worked tirelessly to keep it spotless.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The kids animation team were fantastic and worked non stop day and night to occupy the kids. We were there in the midst of a heatwave (38 degrees!) and the team were very good at keeping the kids in the shade and keeping them cool.
The food was fantastic - an amazing array of fresh fish, meat and vegetables daily. We were spoilt for choice and I ended up overeating most days because it was all just too tempting. If you have fussy kids it might be harder to please them but fortunately mine have quite adventurous taste buds. There was always options of pizza, pasta and chips to appeal to fussy palates. The drinks were the standard fare of all inclusive resorts but quite acceptable. There are a variety of other drinks and wine that can be purchased at a reasonable cost.
Evening entertainment was largely aimed at the kids but good fun and at the end of the day if the kids are happy so are the parents!!
The hotel caters to quite a cosmopolitan clientele and as other reviews point out there is quite a few Germans. However I don't see this as a problem and there were also French, Italian and Dutch visitors too. I did not see any indication that favouratism was shown to the Germans and feel the staff worked hard to keep everyone happy. The only downside was that the Germans would get up extremely early to reserve the sunbeds. Unfortunately considering the size of the hotel the pool area was rather small and there was a distinct shortage of sunbeds. This meant I had to get up at 6.30 am to ensure we bagged a couple!
The rooms were pleasant and we had a fantastic view of the bay from our balcony. The rooms were a little on the small side so if you were a couple sharing with a little one you wouldn't have much space with an extra bed in there. I didn't request a family room but on arrival I noticed we had an adjoining door. I asked if we could have it unlocked and the staff were happy to oblige. Any little niggles were rectified immediately. Our TV had no English speaking channels and I mentioned it to the concierge. On returning to the room later it had already been re-tuned.
I broke the shower head and that too was promptly replaced. The only downside was the air conditioning which was rather feeble however this did not affect our enjoyment.
All in all we had a fantastic time, met some lovely people and we would definitely return again.
