We have just come back from a 4 day stay at this hotel and would like to point out the good and bad points as this is a new hotel.
Check in was good with no problems however we arrived at 11pm to be told that the all inclusive bar closes at 11pm and therefore we would have to pay for any drinks. As we had just arrived we thought the least they could have given us was a free bottle of water, also no food available in the hotel at that time of night not even a vending machine.
The rooms were very modernand clean with large balconies and nice plasma TV's on the wall, however the room we stayed in catered for 4 people yet only had 2 chairs on the balcony. The hotel caters for 1000 guests and when we stayed there were only 60 guests staying yet they put us in a room overlooking the carpark. You would think that it would be in their interest to give guests a nice view to add to the holiday experience especially when empty. we asked to change rooms and were charged an extra 50 euros.
The kids playground looked good and the spa pool was nice however they charged 10 euros per person for entry into the Spa.
The outside pool was nice and big, however for such a big hotel there were no outside toilets or bar meaning you had to go into the reception area everytime. If the hotel was busy this could cause alot of problems with wet slippery flooring.
The bar area inside was also very small for the size of the hotel.
The food was very repetitive and basically reheated from the day before and mixed with something different. The kids buffet was terrible, it consisted of a plate of lettuce, tomatoes, rice and some very dried out meat.
There was no entertainment unless you can call a memory stick full of songs stuck into a DJ set entertainment.
The hotel advertises a gym and hairdressers but when we asked where they were we got told they did not have them.
