This was meant to be a quiet holiday away from our usual Tenerife haunts and it proved to be great. The staff were very pleasant and any small things that went wrong were fixed within an hour. The first week was very quiet but the animacion team headed by Danii worked very hard to get the customers to join in and had always time to spend a few minutes with you.
The second week was busier and the fun continued throughout. The animacion team worked very hard both during the day and at the functions at night to get everyone involved no matter what country you came from. There was a good mixed crowd and no one was out of order and the water polo was an instant hit, no only with those participating but the fun enjoyed by all the others who watched and shouted encouragement to all.
The previous reviews said the food was not up to scratch and being a large man, I DID NOT find this to be true. There were numerous and varied dishes every night and yes pork was on the menu a lot, but it was cooked in different ways, some with sauces some crusty ribs etc. There was always a good choice to pick from and a varied and enjoyable dinner every night.
It was a bit of a walk to the main part of the town about 45 mins or so, but there were decent pubs about 15-20 mins walk away especially THE CAVERN showing 60's pop music, the football, decent pub grub and the cleanest pub toilets I have seen anywhere.
The chinese almost opposite will take a lot of beating for the quality of the set meals 15£.
Back at the hotel the evening entertainment was good especially NEIL DIAMOND who was the best we had seen, but TOM JONES...well forget that night.. ABBA were good and the live birds of prey flying over our heads in the function hall was breathtaking. The bar staff worked very hard and shared a laugh or two.
The pool bar served a great pizza and the usual ham and cheese toasties. We were half board although most others were all inclusive.
The animacion team did a great routine for the musical show stoppers and they continued throughout the 14 days there.
A great holiday, a great clean hotel, staffed by what I would say were very professional staff and an animacion team who worked well together and who worked hard to ensure the guests were looked after.
