Great Location, nice hotel...turn down the music!

Avanti Village is in a nice quiet relaxing location with some nearby restaurants and bars. It is a 30min stroll from the beautiful but busier and livelier harbour.
The hotel itself is clean but it could do with a little bit of updating and freshening up.
The hot water was a little bit temperamental, although this was resolved by helpful hotel staff quickly. Cleaners also did a great job of making bed, cleaning the bathroom and providing fresh towels every day.
They have taken some of the trip advisor comments from last year too seriously. The majority of comments from last year seemed to be complaints about lack of activities.
Well this year, it appears as if they are not taking in to consideration people who just wish to relax quietly by the pool.
At 10am every morning, the "entertainment" staff would blast out terrible Europop and disturb those wanting to have a relaxing morning in the sun by the pool. This went on for a good 15minutes and then would repeat every hour until about 4pm.
I understand they were trying to keep kids busy with a wide range of different activities (positive btw). It was the way they went about it which we found completely unnecessary.
They should have asked around quietly if parents were happy for their kids to engage in the activities and then played the loud music nearer to the kid’s pool so as not to disturb those away from the kid’s pool who wanted to relax.
Unfortunately, this did put a massive negative on our stay
