My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week starting 15th of June. As written in every other review here, the hotel is 90% English guests over 50, but this really didnt bother us. Im there to holiday with my girlfriend not the other guests. Were are both 19/20 and never felt uncomfortable there.
The hotel is at the top of the hill overlooking the cove and there are stunning views from the north facing side.Rooms are an adequate size and theres everything you would need in there to keep you happy. We had a standard room with a balcony over the pool which caught the sun every afternoon. The pool area was small but never overcrowded. You could always find a sunbed any time during the day, (even if some of the residents reserved them at 8am) breakfast was brillaint with all you could ask for (cereals, full english, continental etc) We only stayed half board so weren't offered lunch but dinner was always nice. Although there was alot of the same each night the themed extras (chinese, mexican) were nice, and the food was always warm!
Staff are all very friendly and the maids work exceptionally hard. The hotel was spotless! The people moaning its far to the beach and that the bus is needed are clearly part of the older clientell. Its about 400 metres, down a hill and a few flights of stairs but its nothing thats going to kill you. We did it everyday in 27 degree heat. On the way down to the beach theres a small Spa supermarket which stocks all you'd need for your holiday and a few restaraunts. The beach was beautiful with crystal clear water and never got to busy. Its 15 Euro to rent 2 sunbeds and a parasol for a day which seemed perfectly fair.
Do not!! book excursions online or through Thomson at the hotel. They are very limited (about 3 or 4) and expensive. 26 euro for a coach to mahon?! If you follow the main road from the hotel down to the seafront road just above the spa and turn left you'll find Nura Travel run by a really great English guy called Roger. He can tell you all you need to know about getting around and things to see on the island and he runs much much better excursions every day for about half the price of the thomson ones. Your picked up from the hotel and dropped back aswell so no extra effort. I really couldnt reccoment seeing him enough!
Overall we had a brilliant holiday and I'd reccomend the hotel to anyone. Its got a warm friendly atmosphere, clean nice rooms and has great beaches close by!
