Just back from a week at HCBI & it was one of the best holidays we have had.
It is literally a 5 min bus journey from the airport & like everyone says, the planes fly REALLY low over the resort but after a while you dont notice.
The hotel its self is lovely; we walked into a gorgeous, big, marble reception with comfy leather settees & carved wood furniture. Our check in was quick & the reception staff were lovely.
Our room was in the main block, when we first arrived I was disappointed that we didnt have a view of the pool but looking back it was actually better as there was absolutely no noise whatsoever. The room was big, clean, had a mini fridge for keeping your water cool & had plenty space for all our stuff. I have knocked a point off the 'sleep quality' as although the rooms have air con, its not particularly efficient even when its at its highest setting so the rooms were always a bit warmer than I would have liked. Plus they dont have a safe deposit box in the room, they are downstairs next to reception. The bathrooms were a bit tatty looking but clean all the same. The water in the tap & shower is disgusting! Having a shower is like being showered in the sea!
The bars are good, the one in reception has live music most nights. Abby Pianoman is really good! Never had a problem getting drinks & they arent stingy with the measures either ;)
I have to say that although the food was good & we enjoyed it, I would imagine that children, vegetarians & people who are fussy would struggle here. We always managed to eat well but there were no kids options (apart from pizza, burger & chips every day) & literally no vegetarian options apart from salad. They do also have a strange love of pork?!? Breakfast was the best choice & there is no way anyone could complain about it as they had everything you could possibly think of!
Pool was great, really big & always loads of loungers. Pool bar was handy too & again, never a problem getting drinks. All the bar staff we found were really friendly.
The animation team here are brilliant! They encourage you to join in but they never force you into doing anything you dont want to. They are ALWAYS doing some kind of activity through the day wether its the kids club/aqua gym/water polo etc & the shows they put on at night are great! They put soooooo much effort into them & they are def worth staying in for. The Waka Waka dance is funny!
The beach is accessed from the hotel & its beautiful & very clean (apart from the disgusting fag ends buried in the sand... gross!) & we always enjoyed a walk along it, past all the beach bars to see everyone partying through the day.
Its about a 5 min walk, in the dark, to the water park/Space/the start of Playa Den Bossa & thats where they start hassling you to go into their bars etc. Drinks were quite expensive in the resort but cheap deals can be found.
We went to Evissa one night & unfortunately it was raining so never got to fully explore it but the food there is VERY expensive. We managed to find an amazing wee tapas place up a side street & ate til we burst for 40 euros!
There is a great mix of people at this hotel, no one nationality dominates so the clientel are a good range of ages, nationalities, groups/couples/families etc. Im surprised that its only a 3* as we have stayed in worse 4* hotels.
Had a really great time & def would go back!
