It is difficult to choose a hotel from photos and reviews so it was pot luck that we chose this Hotel... It was our lucky day ( or 11 days to be precise ) from the moment we arrived we were made to feel like one of the family and all the facilities were first class . We didn't expect all the little things that make a stay so enjoyable, like a fridge and tea and coffee in the room ( these weren't advertised on the website ) the beds were so comfortable, a nice big tv, it goes on and on ... not to mention the breakfast buffet , it was unbelievable, even Cava and smoked salmon and things I have never seen before !! All in all a superb Hotel and a stones throw from the beach
We stayed at the hotel at peak time, 1st week of August and though full, it never felt crowded. The hotel is beautifully laid out, very clean with very helpful and friendly staff. There was a good mix of nationalities, no drunken or rowdy behaviour. There was sometimes a short wait for a table during breakfast and evening meals.Can't blame the staff, they were doing their utmost to clear tables and set up for the next family, they just needed a few more hands on deck. There was always plenty of choice during all meals but dinners were never very spiced if you prefer a bit more zing to your food. Plenty of sunbeds by the large freeform pool, the indoor pool was also a nice touch. Beautiful sandy beach was just a two minute stroll down through the hotel. The beach is not a part of the hotel so you do have to pay for sunbeds and parasols (unless you go down after 17.00 by which time the bright orange vested money collector has usually gone for the day). Twee shows in the evening kept us entertained but nobody seems to want to dance after the shows, especially the teens cos they're too busy online using free WiFi in reception! The animation team were very friendly and good fun if you wanted to join in in any of the activities, but they were never in your face or insistent like some can be at other hotels we've been to. Chilled pool bar serving a nice variety of lunch dishes if you're not All Inclusive.
Excellent hotel and facilities with direct access onto beach. Few English guests, but this was not a problem. Good food choice but would have been good with theme nights - became a bit repetitive although always well presented. Good variety of drinks and not in usual cheap plastic cups. Entertainment available during the day if you wanted it but not pushy and there were quiet pool areas for those who wanted to relax.
Evening entertainment dominated by world cup matches so didn't experience much of usual hotel entertainment.
Rooms clean and good size bathrooms, most having a sea view.
Lovely beach but watch out for the nudists!!
Chipmunk type animals can be found in the rocks next to the beach.
Only a handful of shops close by. Car hire beneficial to get around the island which is a must - experience the sand dunes in the North. Some lovely fish restaurants in the South.
Windy most of the time but this is not a problem.
