Spent 1 week on an all inclusive basis at this hotel. Rooms are basic but we had a sea view which was fantastic and worth paying extra for. Room was cleaned daily. The location of the hotel is great for the beach.
Pool was small and only about 60% of it gets sunlight. There were usually sunbeds available, i assume because many people only stayed there for a brief time before moving on or they just preferred the beach. There were youngsters there drinking around the perimeter at times, but no trouble. It can probably be a good area for children outside the busy season, our main issue with the pool is that, for want of a better word, it is an ugly surrounding. Green foliage climbing the 2 walls and an unsightly dirty roof at the one end. The Beach is a far better option.
Drinks are served in small plastic cups, the type you would usually associate with children’s parties. You can ask for a glass in the evening, but getting one depends on who serves you and what side of the bed they got out of that morning. It’s fair to say I don’t think the bar staff enjoy the all-inclusive experience. Also,I can understand the need for plastic cups during the day when so many people carry their drinks across the road to the beach , but after 6pm a more common sense approach should prevail. If you buy a drink outside the all inclusive range they will serve in a glass – A preferable option for some.
The dining experience is a no-frills affair, from the dour surroundings to the cutlery, paper napkins, grubby tablecloths and plastic cups . However, this is the one area of the hotel where the staff are very pleasant and the food is actually ok most of the time. Its closer to transport cafe than the Ritz, so if you’r looking for ambiance include a little extra in your spending budget for a couple of nights eating out.
There is evening entertainment a few days a week,but nothing of any real note for me. What I would call background music. However, there are a few nice bars in the quieter area towards the small harbour advertising singers and the stadium showbar across the road is a very good family venue, with tribute acts every evening.
I can only assume that this hotel is having to cut its costs and as a result, there are areas of maintenance that are neglected. Staff morale seems to be very low. We had a good holiday & got what we paid for. We were not slaves to the all-inclusive package,but still feel we got just about value for money with the view, location ,daytime food & soft drinks. Whilst i am not sure that “all inclusive” suits this particular hotel for a variety of reasons, it can be a good holiday if you use the hotel as a base and utilise the few good attributes it has.
