I was very worried about going to
this hotel after reading some of the negative reviews on Trip Advisor, all I can say is these people either stayed at a different hotel or have nothing better to do than bloody moan!
We stayed in a suite for 10 days, it was perfect. Set in quiet, beautiful maintained gardens with 3 relax pools- it was lovely. The air-conditioning was brilliant, no noise just lovely welcoming cool air. The suite was immaculate and very clean with plenty of towels, and the maid came everyday, we had clean bedding 3 times. I took my own travel kettle as there were none supplied which wasn't a problem, and the hairdryer was a bit rubbish but it didn't spoil my holiday. The food was plentiful, you just couldn't starve here, there was always something lovely to eat, all fresh, tasty, such a vast choice, from healthy options to delicious desserts, there was a theme night on occasions and Turkish cuisine was served most nights which was delicious. Lunch time choices were brilliant too and I just couldn't find fault, the staff work very hard to replenish food and to keep food areas clean. The queues for some food items were only 3 or 4 people deep so no long waits as some have described. My only gripe was other guests not using the hand gels on entrance to the restaurant areas. The beer is not watered down, it is typical local beer, cheap yes but not watered down. It's not strong beer, if you want premium beer or alcohol then play premium prices and stay at the Hilton next door. Why would you want to get "wasted" at a family hotel anyway? The spirits are fine, I couldn't tell the difference between the white rum they served and the brand I drink in the UK. The soft drinks are all branded though ie Fanta etc. drinks are available from 10 am till midnight, could you really drink anymore? The entertainment team are amazing, they work tirelessly, Smithy is so funny, if you like Peter Kay you will love this guy, the kids and adults love him! The newest recruit is Stevie, what a scream! You will find Stevie's package in the Adult bar (kids can go in) each night for quiz and games shows, it's brilliant and after a day of family entertainment he is a blessing for the grown ups, his humour is just enough to bounce over the kids heads. He is truly brilliant at what he does! The kids clubs are top class, there are so many through the day. The staff are very dedicated and welcoming. My son went off to many of the sessions and learned lots of new skills like snorkelling, he had an amazing time. He also did the football academy. I highly recommend this for any kids going, my sons not the best player but he likes to kick a ball and he gained lots of confidence from the experience. The coaches were great guys, really good fun. The hotel is immaculate, I have never been to such a clean hotel. There is never litter, you will see staff working till late at night cleaning toilets etc, the staff were so friendly, so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The waiter in the adult bar always topped our drinks up just before midnight. I never queued for anything at the HV. I never met a rude member of staff, I only witnessed a few guests being rude and discourteous to the staff, shame on them. The pool was shut once whilst I was there and that was at 5:30 in the evening. We think it was closed due to the cleaning process. This place is a fantastic family holiday destination, I would love to come back here, it is one of the best holidays I have ever been on. I just truly cannot understand why anyone would moan. Do not listen to the negative reviews!!! Ps some of the guests I met here and became
friends with did have "tattoos"wouldn't they be? Get a life, don't judge people by thebody art!!!
