I haven't been abroad for 10-11 years, I normally holiday in England, never really like the idea of going abroad. But this year I went, even though I hate flying I am so glad I did and will go again.
The food was amazing, lots of choice every night, always different. in the main restaurant: Breakfast was cooked, toast, many different breads, cheese, cold meats, cakes (Doughnuts etc), croissants, fruit, yogurts, cereal and even show cooking omelette etc anything and everything you could have for a breakfast. Lunch had the starters of fish and salad, the main of pastas, potato dishes, meat dishes, fish dishes and veggie options then pudding with lots of different desserts and there was always 4 ice cream choices, flavors like strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, orange, coconut, coffee and cream! Dinner was the same as lunch but on a larger scale with more choice with added extras including show cooking with meats, vegetables, fish and they even made up stir fry's on request! The only thing I will say that I wish the restaurant would change is the amount of fish they serve, I am not a fish eater and the starers were majority fish, the mains there were: 2-3 main fish dishes, 2 show cooking fish everyday. Some days there was more fish then meat, but saying that there was always a lot there for me to eat! The pool bar served a later breakfast with just continental meats and breads etc, fresh fruit was available all day, lunch at the pool bar were burgers, kebabs, chicken, chips, the normal quick 'fast food' type food, and in the afternoon there is where the cakes and biscuits were served. The ice cream freezer is located there as well.
Any drink you can think of, you can get here! In the restaurant with your food you have the choice of your hot drinks (different choices for coffee, tea, hot chocolate) Red, White and Rose wine, local beer, then the soft drinks of Juices (orange, apple, pineapple etc) and Cokes, fanta's etc these are all self service. The pool bar offers the self service options of the Hot drinks, beer and soft fizzy drinks, and you order with one of the staff that are always there happy to help any juices or alcoholic drinks you may want during they day and they are happy to provide them for you. In the evening the main bar is non-self service. What you order you will get the all inclusive local version of that drink (I.E order a baileys you get the local version, vodka etc) but if you do want the branded names you can but you have to pay, although they give all inclusive guests a reduced price on these drinks. There are 3 cocktails that you don't pay for plus one non alcoholic (which if you get an extra shot of vodka etc you can make it into alcoholic). The sizes of the drinks are extremely generous as well. You can take any drink to your room although they do ask you to use plastic cups for this to reduce any breakages etc.
What can I say about the staff, from receptionists, bar staff and entertainers to the maintenance team and maids to the manager, every single member of staff were always smiling, will talk to you and will bend over backwards to help you and make your holiday special!
The Receptionists (Claire, Dominique, David and Carla) couldn't do anything more to help! Claire checked us into the hotel, but informed us if the room was suitable for my disabled mum to go and inform her and she would change our room until it was suitable (but it was perfect first time round!) We emailed before we went asking about hiring an electric wheelchair, when we signed in a few weeks later, there it was fully charged waiting for us.
The bar/restaurant staff were always very happy to help and spoke very good English, you could have some banter with them and by the end of our first week (out of 2) some of the bar staff even knew what drinks we were having. Keke used to always get my mums coffee done as soon as he saw her, and take it to the table or sunbed for her, Kevin always knew what drinks we were going to be ordering in the evening and gave us a lot of banter. Javi would always smile and wave to us, even in the restaurant he would knock on the window and wave! To many amazing bar staff to name!
Our maid was very good and on 2 occasions we went into our spotless and very clean room to find she had made shapes with our towels. One was a swan next to the bathroom sink, and the other was on the side of 2 swans with their heads meeting in the shape of a heart.
The entertainers were good, Scooby was always playing with the kids in kids club, helping them get drinks and even going swimming with them, kids entertainment varied in evenings depending on what kids they had, but on 1 night there was only 2 kids so Scooby dressed up as protty the hotel mascot and spent a good 15-20 mins dancing with them. The entertainment was great! Especially Rud Stewart, The Beatles, Adele Tribute, Soner!
all the guests were very friendly and chatty. It could take us 5 minutes to walk through the restaurant saying hello or goodbye to everyone in there. There were a few families there that we were particularly talkative with but everyone was fantastic.
Our room had 2 single beds and a large wardrobe then pull across doors to close that off from the main room where we had the TV, another wardrobe, sofa bed, mini fridge/ tea making area and desk area with a large mirror, followed by the good sized bath room with a fantastic non splash tap in the sink, a large area to put all our toiletries and an amazing good sized rain forest shower,
The surrounding area was great for wheelchairs, no matter what corner you turned you were never away from a spar shop for any quick snacks you may want etc, 5 min walk to the beach, 5 min walk to the local parade of shops, with some very lovely items in.
Overall this holiday was superb, the hotel was spotless and well set out (even if the swimming pool was beyond freezing) Staff amazing etc We will deffo be back again! On our arrival as my mum and sister had been before we had a bottle of champagne brought to our room as a welcome back present!
