We stayed between the 3rd and 10th of August 2014 with our three children aged 17, 11 and 9. We arrived late and met by a friendly chap on reception.
Stayed in room 876 (a two bedroom family room) with a view over the hills and quieter pool, stunning! Could ask for nicer room or views.
ALL the staff were friendly and helpful. Get up early to reserve sunbeds and then go back to bed for an hour...we did and it never failed.
Not sure why some complain that there is not enough seating in the restaurant...maybe they all try to sit at the front as if you go further back there are two other dining rooms? Food was amazing, good quality and plenty of choice... Live cooking stations were great!
Snack provided were fantastic with different snacks being served at different snack bars, cheese and ham toasties at the quieter pool, burgers, kebabs, salad and chips at the experience pool and hotdogs and chips at the beach bar. Ice-creams were not in pots but various flavours in cones that the children can help themselves to. Drinks were good quality too!
We used offshore travel to book trips and did the three island tour (which exceeded all expectations) and went to Zia to watch the sunset...fantastic. Do not book through the reps as they charge a stupid amount for the same thing.
The local village is run down and not worth the visit, we drove through and were shocked. Think Doncaster but less money spent on it on a sunny day. You will see it as you drive from the airport to the hotel, so you can judge it for yourself.
The safe costs 20 euros a week and you do not get this back, however, a 20 euro deposit for the aircon and TV remote which you get back upon check out. If like us you have a return night flight it will be worth you booking a late check out as check out is at 12pm, for 40 euro we kept the room until 6pm and with children this was a bonus. However, you can only register your interest as it cannot be confirmed until 20:00 the night before you leave.
I really have no complaints about the hotel, it is very clean and well maintained, all the staff were polite (even the reception staff) and the food was spot on. It is an international site which is great, sometimes nothing worse than going aboard and only speaking to fellow brits, English is the common language and everyone got on great.
Please ensure you buy beach/swimming shoes as there are lots of slippery rocks going into the sea at the beach area.
Bring tons of suncream to avoid paying the prices there. And do not panic about the lack of info at the airport on your return journey as they call you...no boards or reps past security.
