“Please Don't listen to bad reviews”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

I was so worried after reading reviews after I booked here but I can honestly say I don't know what people are moaning about, it is absolutely ridiculous. For the money you pay this place is great. When we arrived the reception staff were so helpful, we was a large party of 15 and they couldn't do enough to accommodate us and put us all together. We was pleasantly surprised with our rooms nice and spacious very clean with a lovely view of the sea we was in block C . The rooms were cleaned every other day and the maids were so friendly. Whilst we was ther new management had taken over and they were painting and maintaining the whole complex looked lovely with plants and flowers everywhere all the staff were so friendly and work so hard the kids entertainment was fine the kids enjoyed it. The AstroTurf pitch was open all the time we was there and there was two bars open at two of the pools. There is two pool tables and table tennis also there are squash courts but the gym is no good. The food was great for breakfast and lunch breakfast being the best lots to choose from we only eat dinner twice as we like to try the local restaurants but the times we did we're fine. They will also make you a pack lunch if you are going on a trip just order the night before. We didn't hire a fan as we found it wasn't to bad of an evening bug apparently it gets a lot hotter in the last two,weeks of August. The pool is very cold but kids didn't mind as they were in there all day long. Overall I can honestly say this place was great and I would deffanantly go back. Peoples moans are so unjustified you should all be ashamed of yourselfs the only things to moan about are the Brits that leave there rubbish on he floor and don't watch there kids. I am a school teacher and I was shocked by how many kids were left unattended thank goodness for the lovely hard working life guards that are so attentive and work hard all day. Caleta de fuste is also so lovely I would recommend swimming with the sea lions and oasis park also feed the chipmunks they are so cute. The best beach is a walk to your right for about ten minutes from the main beach also try fado rock and gambrinusvrestaurants. Don't bother with he water park it's so over priced and when you get there you have yo pay extra for the rings and all the water is sea salt which is not nice coming down a Shute into. I literally was losing sleep before coming here as I thought it would be awful but you really will love it. Oh and I only saw one dead cockroach over the whole two weeks

Just arrived back stayed in block c room was ok spacious but full of ants and I mean a lot.big downfall to this holiday was the all inclusive we ate out a lot of the time and brought our own beers this was due to having only one restaurant open for the hole complex.we done all our drinking at the pool bar during the day on the night to get a drink was a joke if u wanted to wait 10 mins to get a drink and u was only allowed 2 drinks we go all inclusive every year and never have we had to go out and eat and drink as much as we did for the 11 nights we was there we went out at least 6 times due to the mass of people in the restaurant people standing waiting for you to finish.resort is nice and beach is beautiful.would go back but not here.

Room Tip: Stay clear of block c

i really dont think you can knock this hotel for the money you pay to stay there, its clean, staff are friendly and the all inclusive cocktails are a delight!! we stayed for just 5 days with no kids, i imagine it would be quite a good place to take children because of the great pool area and kids club

firstly when I read some of the reviews on this place I was dreading going, what a total load of rubbish ,firstly the food was spot on we were there 11 nights and there was something different every evening, there was 19 of us and nobody had a problem. The rooms where cleaned every other day, the only rubbish left about was that of lazy holidaymakers. All three pools were very good, only down side was the two drink only policy, especially when your a big family, the wait for drinks could take a while on a night. wasn't a big problem though, the staff worked non stop and I found them to be pleasant enough, very close to town and beach. All in all a good value holiday

We had asked for a pool apartment and that's exactly what we got. Its about 5/6 mins from reception. The pool itself is great, never a shortage of sunloungers and we felt everyone was friendly. My sons had a great time in the pool and there were activities daily for them to take part in (and receive a certificate at night if they won) which they loved. The night entertainment was ok, it could be a bit more varied but I feel if the kids enjoy themselves then personally I can relax so in that respect it was ok. The apartment was clean, it was basic and small and we had a wee bit of an issue with ants but we dealt with that and all in all it was acceptable. The maids came in every 2 days and kept the property very clean and tidy. The food was good, a bit repetitive after the first week, we enjoyed the breakfasts mostly but on our second week we only ate in every second night and tried a few of the local restaurants which are only 10 mins away and are reasonably priced with nice food and cocktails. The staff at reception were helpful but they are very strict with the "all inclusive bands" - no matter what on your final day you hand you band in at 12noon and if you loose the band at all you will be charged 30 euros for a new one. All in all a good budget all inclusive holiday which I would rate as 3 stars.

Room Tip: It is worthwhile choosing a pool apartment as the complex is quite big
