Having arrived back from the Aquarius last week I now realise you have to take most reviews with a pinch of salt!! Especially the bad ones!! Not everyone can be pleased all the time and of course there are some who expect far too much! Like most people on this site, I was rather apprehensive of this hotel and worried all the way there! But I need not have been!!! Ok, so some areas are looking a little tired and in need of a little TLC but, its only cosmetic! And anyway, who wants to be couped up inside while on holiday? It is perfectly situated to explore both the Old Town and New Town. But if staying within the Complex is your kind of holiday, then you will be more than satisfied with what is has to offer. Spacious, well kept pool areas, with plenty of sunbeds.
I found our APARTMENT more than acceptable. Light, airey and clean! It was serviced everyday of our stay, with clean towels supplied every other. We looked straight out over the sea, with views of the mountains to our right. You have the choice of a terrace or balcony. If you want an afternoon/early eveing reprieve from the hot sun then I suggest you request a terrace, otherwise you will have wall to wall sunshine in
until sunset. My only niggle was the twin beds but it was of no real concern at the end of the day. The kitchen is well equipped for those that go Self Catering - No hiring of kettles & toasters here!
We went All Inclusive and were pleasantly surprised at the choices given each day! The FOOD was more than acceptable and on the whole we thoroughly enjoyed every meal. There is something for everyone. I especially enjoyed the salads.........and my waistline is very thankful of that too!!
The STAFF here work so very hard. They are ever so helpful and polite and nothing seems too much trouble for them. Always there to greet you with a cheery O’la and a smile! Bar 1!! If you come across the older guy (balding) who works behind the bar, mainly in the evenings, please let me know if you get him to smile? We never managed it but would love to hear of others who do! Nevertheless, he worked tirelessly! Manola the waiter was great too! Just watch him move around the restaurant! As for the Animation guy.........he was hilarious! So full of energy.
That brings me to the ENTERTAINMENT. If this is what you come for on holiday, then maybe this place is not for you. You have the bingo and several quiz nights, with a dancing contest thrown in for good measure, but all in all it is very limited and somewhat dull to say the least. But you will find plenty to do in the Old Town. There is a great Irish bar a stones throw away with live entertainment every night. We had a very enjoyable evening there. Venture into the New Town and I think you will find something for all tastes. It costs about 3 Euros by taxi. We walked there during the day along the beautiful clean beach. A very pleasant walk indeed.
All in all I would highly recommend this hotel, especially if you go All Inclusive. Grab yourself a bargain and you won’t go wrong. Just remember this is only a 3* hotel, so don’t expect the earth. A holiday is what you make it, so ignore all the negatives and enjoy the positives! They really do out weigh the MOANERS!! We only paid £255 each and it was worth every penny! So much so we shall be going back.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL.......EVEN THE MOANERS!!
