Hotel staff service beyond expectations. Cleanliness of room was below what I would expect. Rooms good although showing signs of wear.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Lovely rooms, good food, friendly staff.
Hotel rooms and communal areas were lovely, as were the gardens but the corridors badly need some updating as carpets were dirty and half of the room numbers were missing (on the ground floor anyway). Staff were friendly and helpful. Food good in restaurant (and 24 hour drinks and snacks were great). Entertainment staff worked hard but shows in the evening were a bit naff! Hotel 15 minutes walk from the Yumbo Centre and 10 mins in a taxi from the Irish Centre. Not many bars in immediate vicinity, although I think there may have been some in the Citi centre which we thought was just a shopping centre till our last day when someone mentioned a pub in there. We didn’t investigate too much as the shops were pretty tacky..

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is great. Great location among numerous shops, 2 main pool areas, huge rooms, all inclusive service. A 3 minute walk to the dunes which are amazing. Towels are 5euro each(returnable deposit), the use of safe is 2 euros a day which is all fair enough. Food is good, especially desserts, but as a non-drinker I found it hard to find something decent non-alcololic to drink at the hotel. Juice from vending machines is undrinkable(Im not exaggerating), and the only choice you have left is a soda drinks dispenser with Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, 2 choices of Schweppes and a 7up. And there is water which is all I had left to drink by the pool. There is a bar by the main pool where I could order non-alcoholic beer. Apart from those you can always have beer (Amstel) and there is a wine dispenser with red, white, rose and sangria. Cava in the restaurant for breakfast only. All in all it would be good if the juices were drinkable, but there were absolutely disgusting. Main pool area is full of life with animators and music all day long. We preferred another pool at the back of the hotel- very quiet and intimate. There is also a sundeck for nudists on the roof. Hotel really has everything you need, a real bargain and value for money. Mostly Germans in their 50+ but there are some young families with kids. Facilities for kids are great. Playground, game room, animators, kids pool. There is also a decent gym at the hotel free for everyone to use. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!
