Just returned from a week at this hotel and it's a really great hotel for what we paid. Don't be worried by the fact it is in Laganes (a lively resort). The hotel is right on the far edge of the town and well away from the main lively part of Laganes. It is quite near to the airport but it’s not exactly Heathrow so the planes weren’t too frequent and we didn’t hear any at night. The hotel is right on the beach but you have to pay for sunlougers and they were very expensive (10 euros for a day I think), but there is nothing to stop you buying a beach umbrella for about 5 euros and putting it up on the beach. Alternatively walk further along the beach towards the resort centre where the loungers are cheaper.
I travelled with my husband and 3 children (12, 9 & 3). We had 2 rooms next to each other with a connecting door which was great because we did not have to have the youngest one in our room! I emailed the hotel 2 weeks before we went to request the rooms together.
The food was really good, especially the breakfast my children would add; we could not fault any of the meals. The chefs were constantly running in and out topping up the buffets and making sure it was all clean and tidy. There was plenty of choice. As expected the drinks were local varieties but this really didn't bother us. If you are particular enough to want branded drinks then these were available to purchase.
The rooms were spacious enough for our needs. The only thing that spoilt it was the beds were very hard and the pillows like slabs of concrete! If you have enough room in your suitcase I would definitely recommend you packing your own!
The Animation team were excellent and worked tirelessly to keep everyone entertained. Although some of the activities/ entertainment was quite ‘cheesy’ they did work very hard on what is quite clearly a very small budget.
I would give this hotel 8/10 only marked down because the bed was so uncomfortable and the bathroom needs updating. They are in the process of updating the fittings and replaced the curtains and patio furniture whilst we were there. The public areas had obviously been recently refurbished recently.
