"Excellent hotel and facilities. Above expectations"
Only one issue was the bed and the pillows were not very comfortable. The bus journey to Loro park booked through the hotel had no air conditioning so we all felt a bit sick. Apart from that it was superb.
It was our 4th stay at the hotel and we felt at home straight away. We had a beaitiful suite overlooking the sea and even had sun beds on our terrace. The staff are always friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was excellent and had a vast choice of everything you could ever want. We had a super time and can't wait to go again next year.
The hotel is huge with numerous bars and different themed restaurants, all of a high standard - the Spanish and Italian offerings especially. There is also a stand alone restaurant, Las Aguas that has exceptional a la carte cuisine and a staff that are simply brilliant. There is every available amenity you can imagine and an award winning Spa that is wonderful and if you can afford a treatment, well worth a visit. The staff throughout were warm, welcoming and couldn't do enough to help.
The hotel has direct access to the beach and the whole resort has a number of boutique shops and places to eat a short walk away.
A thoroughly wonderful place.
We stayed here for 6 days, The hotel, food, facilities, location and staff were excellent. There was only 1 thing that let it down. We stayed in the block called Aida with a garden facing room. The problem was that the entertainment in the garden bar ran till 11pm at night. If you wanted to get to sleep before 11pm forget it. We did want a couple of early nights and did not manage to sleep until after the entertainment. But other than this the hotel was amazing and we will go back but will make sure that we don't have a room with the same acoustic drawbacks!

Excellent hotel, very clean throughout.
Staff in all areas provided excellent service from start to finish.
Although the hotel was pretty much full we were amazed that we never had problems finding sunbeds where we wanted to be. The pool areas were never busy and always peaceful given that there were very few children around.
Well equipped air-conditioned gymnasium with clean equipment in good working order. If you are in to keep fit you will pretty much have it to yourself.
We opted to stay on bed and breakfast and was pleased with the selection of food available.
The hotel is at the top of a small hill overlooking the bay. You can walk to the beach in less than 10 minutes. The hill felt a little bigger on the way back. No problem for youngsters but those less agile would probably not enjoy the walk back on hot day. You are ideally placed for Del Duque beach with is one of the nicer beaches in my opinion.
Easy and enjoyable 20 min walk to the bars all the way round to the port though opted to take a cab back for less than 5 euros.
It is a quiet hotel so I would strongly recommend to adults looking for peace and quiet rather than families with young children.
We had an excellent holiday, the hotel was close to all facilities yet was very quiet, rooms a little dated but very clean. The staff were all very friendly and the food was very good. Will definitely be going back.
If you have booked this hotel or are thinking of booking - do not worry, it is fantastic. We have just returned from a 5-night stay and we couldn't fault it. There was plenty of choice at meal times (in fact, we didn't go out to eat at all) and we did not experience any queues at the bar. The bar in the 5th floor lobby has a machine to help yourself to soft drinks and there was always plenty of bottled water to help yourself to. The restaurant also has a soft drinks machine and a couple of beer pumps!
The pool areas are great and there are 2 large areas for adults-only (on the 5th floor by the heated pool) which was a great place to enjoy a bit of quiet in the sunshine.
Overall, we wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Please feel free to ask me any questions about the hotel and I'll gladly answer.
