Very nice place to spend holidays. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food is amazing, always can find something nice! Close to the beach. Every evening nice shows for the kids and later on for adults. Just amazing place! Paradise! I will definitely come back there!
We've been on several AI holidays in several countries and are fairly picky; we were really happy with this one (despite our concerns having read some of the reviews on this site).
It's smaller than most we have stayed in, which was nice in many ways. We did miss the variety of bars and restaurants that come with a larger hotel but that's not to say that the bar and restaurant weren't good (although a queue did sometimes build up at the bar in the evening).
Spotlessly clean, really friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. Lovely pool, great waterpark, fun mini-golf and a few shops to potter in too.
The resort is hugely built up for such a small inlet and cove but all rooms have a view of the sea so you just have to look beyond that!
Would happily stay here again.
"Lovely views and a pleasant stay, I would return!"
Arrival and parking: About 40 minutes drive from the airport, down the GC1 direct to Taurito. Nearer to the hotel you'll have to navigate up a steep slope. Be warned though, I think will have a better chance of winning in the National Lottery than to find a parking space outside the hotel.
Check-in: We was seen to promptly and the receptionist explained everything to us that was needed, and was very kind and polite. However, because we was staying in Block 6, which is higher up the mountain - we had to navigate through 3 different lifts to reach our room in the searing hot heat and full power of the sun. Tip: try and get Block 1-3 if possible.
Our room: It was cleaned and tidied everyday. Had a lovely balcony which was ocean facing. The views are absolutely beautiful. The only downside was our air conditioning wasn't very effective. I would leave the AC on from 7pm onwards and it'll be cool by 6am or so. The room was awfully warm day and night.
Catering: I went all inclusive and it was extremely nice to have a full english breakfast for the mornings, and different themed food for lunch and dinner. We was never thirsty as we had water on tap. We was very happy with the catering there.
Events: Different events and shows were provided each evening. Mini-disco everynight for children at 8pm. Loved the Whitney Houston act, circus act, reptiles and so on.
Beach: About 15 minutes walk down the mountain or use the bus service (5 minute journey) to reach Taurito beach.
