Overall our stay was good except for the following niggles. Lighting in the room was very subdued and so reading was difficult. Television had no English language entertainment. Food was ok but queues for the coffee machines at breakfast were very long at times.

Great short stay

Lovely clean hotel. Bedrooms adequate with plenty of storage and hanger space, we had a superior room which was worth the little bit extra. Large balcony with 2 chairs and foot stools. Even airers to hang wet towels etc on balcony. Food was very good for 4* all inclusive, good variety at every meal and they kept bringing fresh food out, so there was always plenty anytime of the day. The drinks AI was ok with a selection of wine on draught. Water was not by the bottle or included whih was a little disappointing as guests constantly took to refilling their water bottles from the water dispensers provided. Plenty of activities provided by the animation team during the day and night. Not something I particularly enjoy but was there for those that like it. We were only here for 2 nights after our cruise, the hotel was very busy with queues for Dinner, we enjoyed it for 2 days , however would hate to be there in the main season as it would be far too busy and noisy

Timely winter break

Very nice hotel, with great service. Very well looked after for our week away with the unexpected bonus of Champagne and cake to celebrate a birthday. Nice touch!

Brilliant holiday

We stayed here in last two weeks of October in blazing sunshine. We were here with my sister, brother-in-law, nephew, his wife and two children aged 6 and 3. The kids had a blast in mini club and pleaded to go there. This runs for two sessions and then in the evening there is the mini dancing and singing session. The pools were nice. Food was very plentiful with choices and variation. The shows every evening were simply the best. The animation team were amazing. Sometimes they got people from outside but the entertainment team was far superior. We had a very good time. Good selection of English TV channels on the satellite flat screen telly on the wall. Good sized balcony to sit outside and watch the entertainment on the stage or people watching.

Chill out week

For us the hotel was great for a relaxing week. Quiet pool area away from main pool and entertainment which suited us. Clean, best I have seen. Staff, attentive and helpful. The grounds, leafs never laid on the ground long. Kiddy play area they even cleaned the fence which enclosed the area. However it's a shame there is a charge for the wifi

My only complaint and I doubt i am the only one is the endless noise coming from the Animation team from 10am to 11pm every day/night. The structure of the Hotel means all rooms overlook the pool area. This is where the animation team is based. This means that you can't even sit on your balcony and enjoy peace and quiet. As a result I felt I had to leave the hotel everyday in search of a noise free environment. Day time might be tollerable but to effectively be living in a disco until 11pm everynight is not on, especially has they have a disco in the basement. Otherwise good food and perfect weather.

Great Service

Great customer service: Staff polite, attentive and extremely helpful. I requested a change of room because I needed to have the windows open to allow fresh air in the room because of my sinuses and was promptly given a new room. Excellent selection of food at both breakfast and dinner.
