We stayed at this lovely hotel from 1st - 8th Sept. 2011. The whole place is spotless, gorgeous rooms and bathrooms although you do have to step into the bath to use the shower it's worth it! Maid service is very efficient and thorough and we found all staff in all areas very friendly and helpful. The pool area is huge with lots of sunbeds availlable and a very safe pool with lifeguard on duty while we were there, easy to get in and out of with shallow walk in at either end - most families seemed to catch the free road train from the hotel to the beach which meant that the place was very quiet during the day - got busier after 3.30 every day. Hotel bar prices are reasonable but much cheaper in town. A few disappointments - there was no kettle in the room only a saucepan thing to boil water which was quite dangerous to pour. Also, we were half board but felt the need to eat out several evenings as the buffet food was uninspiring and often cold, even when we were first in one evening. Breakfasts were better but still sometimes not hot enough. Be aware that garden view rooms hardly get the sun on the balcony - pool view rooms are what you need if you like sun. We would go back but only on bed and breakfast, but the hotel will be all inclusive next year which won't suit us.
