Just returned from a 2 week All Inclusive. Party of 4, two adults, two teenagers (15 and 13) booked through Thomas Cook. What a fantastic time we all had. Like many other posters I would concur that the Hotel was a very good 3 star.
Rooms were basic, but did include a fridge and air conditioning (which you don't need to pay for). Rooms were also cleaned every day. Safety deposit box was 2 Euro per day and a 10 Euro deposit which was returned when you checked out.
The pool area was fantastic, clean with a spacious pool with permanent goals and net for water polo and volleyball. Plenty of sunbeds to go around as well. There was a pool/swim up bar which was really good.
As far as food goes, you won't go hungry in this Hotel. The food layout in the restaurant was ok but the chairs tended to be a little close together. No dress code by the way, shorts were permitted.
Breakfast 7am to 10am. Ranging from full hot breakfast, cereals, cold meats/cheeses, fruit etc. Very good.
Snacks - 10.30 to 12.00. Ranging from salads/sandwiches, toasties, burgers, jacket potatoes, pizza etc. This was great if you missed the breakfast earlier.
Lunch - 12.30 to 14.00. Buffet style
Snacks - 15.00 to 17.00, laid out buffet style, varied every day
Dinner - 19.00 to 21.30 Buffet style, we found this to be average and tended to get a little repetitive. The dinner menu is posted in the afternoon so if we didn't fancy it we just decided to eat out. They did advertise a limited selection of cold snacks between 10pm and midnight but we never seen any.
For AI, local spirits, beers, wines, soft drinks were all available at the hotel bar from 10am to midnight. The bar did stay open to 1am but if you wanted a drink after midnight then it was charged to your room as it's a cashless Hotel. There was a very comprehensive cocktail selection and the bar tenders were excellent, very polite and courteous, nothing was an effort. In fact all the staff were the same. All very friendly indeed. Thomas Cook rep Faye was very pleasant. We met some nice families and couples whilst we were there.
The evening entertainment however was disappointing to say the least. Not much going on there, some dancers/magician but apart from that it was poor. Usual stuff, Bingo, quizzes, Karaoke. Think this something that they should address, especially if there are families there.
The location of the Hotel couldn't have been better. If you go out the back entrance your literally 100m from the strip where their is an abundance of bars and restaurants. The beach front is about a 5 min walk away as well so your right in the thick of it but far enough back that you don't hear the hustle and bustle. Most bars did a buy one get one free and just about all had free wifi. This is something that the Hotel didn't have which was a shame.
All the usual water sports were available.
On checking out we had some charges that weren't ours which the receptionist easily rectified it's worth double checking anyway.
