We arrived as a family of 3 in the Casa Ducales area to a very warm and personal welcome! Unfortunately the room we were shown was a huge disappointment for me as this was quite dark and smelt a little stale with a very small box balcony, not only high up but the balcony rail seemed very low and a little wobbly! After all we had booked a junior suite for the extra space. After going straight back down to reception I was assured that they would do all they could to get us moved and to their credit they moved us the following morning to a very nice room indeed on the ground floor and still with a sea view. We particularly appreciated the fresh fruit, cheese etc brought to our room daily! Even our daughter had her own toiletries, milk and cookies brought to the room, own little robe and slippers!!
We went half board and I would definitely recommend this as you have 8 restaurants to choose from...albeit you may have to supplement more expensive dishes outside of the buffet restaurant which is fair enough. Much more economical doing it this way if you intend on staying on the resort. Las Aguas was delicious, the Italian good particularly as you can see the kids from the terrace and the brasserie very good too. Breakfast is fab with an array of choice. If you are staying in the Casa area you also have the choice of having a more personal and peaceful breakfast...in fact on the two occasions we chose this we were the only people there!! Casa area also has a complimentary bar and tea and cake at 4pm every day which was a nice touch.
Pools very clean and nice temperature...although a little sharp around the rocks. Our daughter loved the kids club but equally enjoyed making friends in the pools. This brings me on to the subject of kids...yes there are lots of them and I think you need to appreciated that if you book through term time you are not going to avoid them, you will experience lots of pre-schoolers. You also need to remember that the north of England break up as early as June so you have to understand that they will be unavoidable! There are areas for adults only but not that many. We obviously have a little one but equally get irritated by them screaming through your meal while parents sit there doing nothing to prevent this!
Evening entertainment good with very attentive waiters.
All in all a fabulous hotel with equally fabulous staff who really aim to meet every need. Thank you to all in Casa ducales, particularly Marianna and we are already looking to seeing you next year!
