Arrival- Greeted by the receptionist who was extremely friendly and gave us our key etc. Our first impressions were that the hotel was very clean, to a high standard, with lovely tree decorations along the corridors on the way to your room.
Room - We were on the ground floor. Possibility of the lift, however we liked the walk to and from the pool, buffet etc. From our room we could walk straight out from a separate door which took us straight to the pool area. And 2 mins from our room was the buffet dining room, reception and bar so our room location was great!
Food - By far the most choice i have seen in a restaurant. I can't remember all the food but anything you can think of they most probably had. I found myself stacking my plate a little too much. The buffet is repeated, with maybe a few different choices on different nights but there is so much choice you won't run out!
Disappointment - Queing for a table was sometimes embarrassing and annoying. Left standing for 5 minutes until the staff noticed us was annoying. Out of 7 nights, 3 we were seated straight away, 4 we had to wait. But hey its a restaurant! Also, the all inclusive drinks are NOT self service. Had to wait 5 mins to attract the attention of the low amount of staff working by waving our arm in order to get a drink. The drinks are a jug but if you get thirsty this will soon go. We found ourselves resistant to ask as they seemed busy off their feet, and didn't want to disturb them. They would certainly benefit from self service drinks.
Entertainment - We stayed to watch the attainment. These included: Magician, dancing, a man playing the piano, a circus act type of dance including hula hoops etc. More for the kids but the bar which it is centred around seems to keep most people happy. It is fun to watch however finishes at about 11.
Pool - by far one of the biggest pools in a hotel. People always in it, not overcrowded and its so big you never find yourself bumping into anyone.
Town - Wow! A huuuuuge strip of clubs, bars, restaurants, souvenir shops. you name it! The row on both sides of the street just never ended. On a night out it is extremely lively and noisy! Plenty of people trying to get you to go into their clubs and pubs. We went to a great irish bar..Mulligans..great live band playing Jessi J price tag. Very friendly atmosphere!
Very friendly, not a bad word to say!
At the hotel there was young, middle aged, a few old, and kids. Id say it was mixed over all. However, not many English. We saw about 2.
Overall - Very good holiday! Definitely a 4 star. Only down point - The minimal staff in the restaurant..... but there is a large number of people to accommodate for.
Go! you won't be disappointed!
