I wanted to spend some time with my two teenage daughters and done a lot of searching and came up with this hotel.
The holiday was booked via Thomsons and I can honestly say that from the point of booking to arriving back to the UK that Thomsons were very good.
This was made even better with the friendly atmosphere of the hotel.
Both my girls and myself are a bit reserved but found the holiday to be just what we needed.
When we arrived in the middle of the night the first impressions of the hotel was really good but then upon waking up and going on the balcony the view was simply stunning of the blue sea. I have never had a view like this before on all of the holidays I have been on.
THe staff were very friendly and were only too pleased to help.
Food was very nice and plenty to choose from.
Entertainment at times was cheesy but that is what I have learnt from past experiences from holidays I've had in the past. Albeit it was good fun.
Get up early to put towels on sun bed (before nine) as they soon went. But the pools were very nice and pool entertainment was good thought the day.
My only gripes and didn't really make an impact on my stay were:
The entertainments theatre in the evening smelt a bit like sick near the bar area so I kept away from that small area.. This was every night I went in there.
Pool water a bit cold
Food was a bit samey but very delicious.
I wouldn't let these comments put you off because the positives far outweighed me being picky in those latter comments.
I would go back.
