“very good, 2nd stay”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

very large complex, close to the main beach, very well kept and clean, staff are all very friendly and polite. the pool areas are large and plenty of sunbeds available, didn't see much in the daytime as we spent most days on the beach,tip, walk for half an hour along the beach towards sotavento, past the Princess hotel, the beaches are stunning and empty . rooms are cleaned daily,plenty of towel changes,no complaints, had a seaview room , 9229, well worth the extra although its a long way from the bar! and restaurant.
The food is very good, decent selection, well presented and it would be unfair to pick petty holes in anything, although the coffee machines seem to be a lucky dip as to which one gives coffee and which one gives flavoured water,so try them all. we didn't make any use of the entertainment so cant comment , but very happy with our 2nd stay here and will return next year

Haven't long come back from 10 nights all inclusive. The holiday was originally booked for me & my boyfriend but ended up having a friend coming instead. Was a very relaxed holiday but full of family's!
The food was ok, lots of choices but never very hot! & the drinks were well worth going all inclusive for, they are not shy with the vodka lol.
The entertainment team were friendly but tony really stood out & he is a lovely friendly character who I've made good friends with out there. He also speaks various different languages!
Over all excellent holiday the hotel was AMAZZZZING
Visit oasis park :)!

Great location, right on top of the shops and 5 minute walk from the beach! Good service in the bar upstairs with Miguel.
You pay for all inclusive, if you land late at night you miss a day and just get dinner. If you check out early as check out time is 12, you get your band taken off you meaning no food or drink?! Complained and got a voucher for lunch.. Not satisfied at this at all with this service from the hotel. Drinks machines break and don't get sorted by the staff in the restuaraunt.

Overall the resort is in a great location, with many of the requisite. Elements in place, but attention to detail let's it down on several fronts, good food when it was warm and plentiful,
Nice pool area when it was clean(Though cold) Repetitive entertainment and judging by the lack of basic maintenance (locks on toilet doors) and tables piled with plates occasionally and extraordinarily slow service on arrival, it's a good family resort though not if you're expecting a 4 star experience and not if your expecting everything to be included in all inclusive (A misnomer).

We are a young couple who had chosen this hotel for our first holiday abroad.
The hotel it's self looks like it's in a derelict area with nothing about, as we got told on the coach transfer that there are more goats on the island than there are people, to us this wasn't a great start. The journey took about an hour and 20minutes from the airport, with only two stops which included ours.

When we arrived to the hotel we both thought, it looked better than expected both from the outside and in. We were greeted by the manager who spoke English well and was very friendly and bubbly,the hotel was big so it took us a little while to find our room, but when we did we were pleasantly surprised. It looked clean with a modern bathroom, although the furniture needs to be up dated.We found the bed rock hard it had no give in it what so ever, so we didn't have a decent sleep and also the wardrobe was a bit stiff to close.

If you want a view it's best to go for one of the sea view rooms, as the rest of the blocks were facing each other all you could see were people leaving their rooms. We were located on block 5 so it was only a short walk to the pool, although the beach was a bit of a walk that was up hill. Unfortunately we arrived on a bad week as the wind was awful, it was impossible to go on the beach, as the sand flew everywhere and the waves were rough, we were only there for 5 minutes and then decided to leave.We didn't get told about the sunbeds on the beach that they were private, so we got told to move by a rude man, there were no signs about the use of them.My towel also flew off the sunbed and landed on another women while she was relaxing, even though i put it down to prevent it flying off, the wind was to strong.. Slightly embarrassing. Saying that the beach looked lovely and clean, with gold sand and blue waters, and the pool looked lovely and clean it was very cold but once you're in it's fine. You're not meant to reserve sunbeds but everyone did, my boyfriend took his towel off for a second and some women dragged it away so when he turned back round it was gone.

We found that most of the hotel was more full of German and French people i think i only heard about 3 English families and couples speak all week. The majority of people there were couples.

The restaurant needed to be updated and my boyfriend said the smell in there was awful and hated walking in there. We had to walk around for a little bit to wait for a table to become free, and when we did we found the cutlery and glasses to be dirty, we had to pick up at least 5 different plates before we found a dry and clean one, the food it'self was okay for about two days and then become tasteless and boring as it was more or less the same food everyday.. I personally thought the food tasted really salty and the seafood seemed not to be that fresh as it had a strong smell and seemed rubbery, it also wasn't hot at all we even had some pasta that had just came out and it was still cold. The juices tasted like dish water i also had a fly in my drink while i was pouring myself one.The desserts were basic with a few cakes and ice creams that were served. The ice cream scoop was disgusting which was placed in dirty water with different ice cream flavors swimming around it. We weren't a massive fan of breakfast as the bacon was all fat, the fried eggs were fine so was the toast and beans but that was it the, sausages looked like they came out of a can and, the scrambled eggs had a funny taste to them.

The bar at the top of the hotel was lovely, and so were the staff they were always smiling and trying to have a little joke with us.
