We stayed at the hotel for a week with my 2 children aged 6 and 4 last week. We chose to go all inclusive which was a mistake as we ended up then having to pay to eat out. The food was fine if you are happy to put it on your plate and then go to the microwave to warm it up which people were doing! Same pretty much for lunch and tea every day. Bread stays out from breakfast so is usually stale by tea time. Service staff appeared fine if you we're anything but English, one waitress slammed my partners drink down an it went everywhere. Also wouldn't recommend the milk for children as it made my son ill.
Onto the cleaners,, we came back from the beach one day to have showers as we were covered in Sand ready to go for lunch to find the cleaner in our room which was fine however she wouldn't let us in to get changed as she was 'being timed' so I had to jump in grab a dress and everyone else a pair of shorts and we had to go to lunch in wet sandy clothes. More shockingly when I was getting the clothes I saw her wipe the inside of the toilet bowl with a towel and then wipe the top of the toilet and begin the floor - not very hygienic at all! Also would recommend paying for a safe as everyday when we can back having shut and locked all doors the cleaner left the patio door open!
We were on a ground floor and 2 of our towels were stolen off the balcony.
The entertainment you need to get seats at least an hour before or be prepared to stand and not see a lot.
Seemed to mainly be Spanish and Italian people in the hotel.
Pool always had sunbirds available and always a life guard. The only good thing for us was the beach, Absolutely beautiful beach and sea and right outside the hotel - we went there everyday! Would visit Son Bou again but never that hotel!
