My family spent two weeks here during the Easter Break and left extremely disappointed to say the least. We opted for the all Inclusive package which was our first time opting for such a package on holidays and wanted to experience it. I had to leave a review because I didn't want other families to experience what we had to and perhaps it may make management wake up and take notice...but I doubt it.
Food is of very poor quality, often found that basic condiments has run out and took days to restock. We got extremely tired of the same poor quality food everyday and ended up eating out to avoid the mundane trip to the buffet. Noticed other restaurants offering different cuisines on the site but all were closed.
Had to move bungalows during our stay after a couple of sleepless nights due to MICE inside the decorative coving in the bathroom, they actually began burying through the polystyrene and the holes were growing in size , only a matter of time before they got in. Had to cause a several scenes in reception for notice and to be moved (not what you need when on holidays.) My wife and two young daughters were left traumatized and management weren't in the least apologetic. After being moved to another bungalow almost identical to the previous realized the noise from the entertainment at the pool bar didn't end until midnight (not helpful with two young girls)
Some staff were nice and friendly but the male staff at the main pool bar were extremely ignorant and found myself biting my tongue on numerous occasions so not to add any more drama to the holiday. To give you an idea of the ignorance I'm taking about, one evening while attending the pool bar I thanked the bar man after being served in Spanish, as I make an effort when a visitor in any foreign country and try and embrace the culture while there. The bar man responded with 'Spanish ??? You Wish' - disgraceful in an island who's economy is primarily based on tourism.
The beds are the most uncomfortable I've ever came across, no excuse for this when mattress toppers are extremely affordable especially when bought in bulk !!
Have to pay for TV channels which aren't worth it at all !!!
Have to pay for WIFI which is extremely poor and very frustrating !!!
Noise is very loud the nearer you get to the pool bar at night , worth bearing in mind if you have youngsters or are looking for a quiet holiday !!
As an Irish family we felt isolated among the majority English population both in the resort as well as outside !!!
Weather was fantastic.
Some great restaurants outside resort - Prickly Palm & Restaurant 15 to mention but two.....
Santa & Ash - two fantastic young women who really look after the kids in the resort. Our two girls really liked them.
Cleaning staff kept the place clean considering the amount of litter that resort guests were creating.
Great Location, good views of the sea and the bay. Only 10 min walk to town center.
Evening Entertainment at the resort was good considering but more variation needs to be added, the line up for second week was almost identical to first week.
Oasis Park , great day out especially the seal lion show.
