We stayed here from 24th May for 10 nights. I was on holiday with my partner, 8 yr old son and my brother, his wife and their 2 children aged 6 and 9. It was a perfect hotel especially for families with children.
It is near to the beach (5 min walk) and the splash pool with slides at the hotel was a big hit with the kids.
The staff were fabulous, really friendly, Julie and Teresa on reception were really friendly and helpful, Nic and Vassi behind the bar were great, we felt like regulars after a few nights!
Geri at the kids splash pool bar was so lovely, the kids sat at the bar having drinks and ice creams whilst watching scooby doo on the television and she made them feel so welcome.
The rooms were of a good standard and cleaned every day, the towels were also changed as often as you wanted ( we put them in the bath when we wanted them changing).
The breakfast was really good with plenty of choice, we ate at the hotel a few evenings and the food was excellent (especially the lemon meringue pie!) My only criticism was that the kids club was operating the mini club and entertainment on the stage which was in the same room as the dining room and it was too loud to have a conversation whlist eating. I feel it would be of benefit to have the kids club further away from the dining room as I felt it probably detered people, especially those without kids from eating at the hotel at night.
That said the entertainment team were really good, especially Lee and Sian, the kids loved them and really enjoyed the X box connect party night.
We tried a few of the local restaurants and would highly recommend Paolos, we also walked along the beach a few times to eat at Zeppos which was also excellent and had lovely sea and mountain views, we got a horse and carriage ride back which for the seven of us worked out cheaper than 2 taxis and the kids loved it so highly recommend this too.
All in all a fab holiday and we would all love to come back asap, I can see why so many people visit this hotel year after year, looking forward to becoming one of the regulars!
