We last stayed at Le Meridien about three years ago at the same time of year and were very impressed by the quality of the hotel and particularly its children's animation programme and facilities.
As before, the quality of the hotel did not fail to meet its previous excellent standards in terms of the accommodation, quality of service, food and facilities, but there was one disappointing area of the experience: when we last visited Le Meridien, there was an animation team of 6 to 8 happy young people around the hotel and the hotel pool most parts of the day, actively joining in and having fun with the children with a mission to make sure all the children had fun, as well as supporting the evening entertainment. On this visit, there were only two animation staff who did their best to please the children but at only one scheduled 30 minute activity in the day and for one hour's entertainment in the early evening, which fell short of our previous experience and expectation.
As our daughter does not really like children's clubs much (although the Penguin club at the hotel was well run), we were relying on the animation team and it was actually the main reason for our return. So as a result, we did not really have as much relaxation time as we did previously as we had to entertain our daughter ourselves all day long.
We were so well looked after, in a lovely resort. We really enjoyed our stay. The food was very good, and eating breakfast on the terrace in December was a real bonus. The staff were polite and helpful. The spa was lovely, but the treatments seemed fairly expensive so we did not partake.

I spent a week, all inclusive at the Columbia Beach Hotel with a friend. The staff were very attentive. All areas were kept clean and tidy. The food was excellent. Buffet breakfast and dinner with many choices to suit all tastes. Choice of 3 course menu at lunchtime.
The pool area was quiet and there were no problems finding sun beds near the pool or on the beach located just below the hotel. All areas were accessible for those with mobility issues, ramps within the hotel, terraces and down to the beach.
We used the spa facilities at the sister Columbia Resort which was a luxurious treat.
We had a hire car for the week which I would recommend if you want to get out and explore further afield.

Our whole experience staying at coral bay hotel was excellent, the room was clean, well presented and had a beautiful view. As you walk around inside and out everything looked exactly as it did years ago when i stayed before. Nothing look tired which sometimes lets other hotels down. All the staff we approached were friendly and polite. We would definitely return again...

Having researched on the internet in advance of booking this hotel I felt reasonably confident we were going to be pleased with our choice when we arrived, well we were.
The hotel (which is for adults only) is perfect if you want a chilled out , do nothing , relaxing break.
Service from the staff is quite simply as good as I think it could get. Nothing is too much trouble, every member of staff is always smiling, courteous and helpful, and service was as good as any we have ever received anywhere in the world.
Food is really good, with a wide selection at all mealtimes, and high quality.
Rooms are spotless, and beds comfortable. Only slight criticism would be that decor is a little dated.

"Excellen hotel, staff very professional & friendly"
From when we arrived we were greeted by the lovely porter and the friendly reception staff. Our rooms were clean and very comfortable. The breakfast bar staff were very accommodating and nothing we asked for was too much of a trouble. They positvely bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. The gym facilities are very good and better than all of the hotels I have been to before. Fantastic stay and wished I had booked a longer holiday. Would definately return. The little touches and things that they had thought about made this hotel special. For example every night you receive a little chocolate bar on the bed, we were there over the easter holiday and they provided our room with a package of sweet bread rolls, easter eggs. In the gym there was spare towels and fruit. It is this attention to detail that I really appreciated.

"Wonderful place to go and to stay!Really loved it!"
Such a fantastic experience! Straight away from the moment of arrival at the Azia Resort &Spa I felt totally comfortable! A lot of positive points about the hotel: 5-star service: staff are really friendly and helpful, make you feel very welcome .
5-star spaces and facilities: The beautiful gardens are really nice place to chill out and relax. Very big and nice swimming pool area with plentiful sun beds and sun shades from the palm trees-lovely views over the sea and the coastline beyond. Comfortable rooms with beautiful interior. I had a very nice room with tiled floor, huge bed and a large balcony. I had good sleep here listening to the waves. Really amazing spa center with highly professional staff and excellent treatment. I enjoyed it a lot!
The food was superb. Varied dinner and lunch, delicious breakfast with fresh juice, always fresh fruits and amazing wine!.
Very good wi-fi signal! In the lobby there is a nice and cool atrium, ideal for afternoon coffee (the quality of coffee is really good) with relaxing music. There is also library in the lobby with a lot of interesting books. I spent great time drinking coffee and reading some books and magazines there.
Overall I had an amazing experience ! Would come here again for a longer stay!
