Food was very poor quality, almost inedible,as were the drinks, they obviously buy in bulk as cheaply as possible. Meals were like feeding time at a zoo, loads of screaming kids running round sticking their fingers in sweets.....
Entertainment was zilch, the animation team mimed poorly to mamma mia!! Bingo was our main entertainment but thank heavens for the display screen cause people talked all the way through it.
Our room was basic but clean although air conditioning had mind of its own.
Waterpark was only plus but yet again only two slides working at a time and wave pool is operated 4 x a day only. It was also very noisey with lots of screaming kids understandably.
Absolutely nothing to do for our teen unless he wanted to spend a fortune in the small arcade. The deepest pool was 1.6m!!
I can only liken it to butlins, supposed to be all inclusive but lots of additional payment needed. Excellent for little kids but no good for older ones as nothing to do. Poorest 4* we've stayed in
