Hotel was nice and clean. A good 30 min walk away from main resort, nothing outside the hotel, although there is one shop in hotel grounds. Food was good, Kids club was absolutely fantastic, the First Choice team are great with them, 4 year was there everyday, sometimes twice a day. Pools are great, lovely mini waterpark, and splash park.... More

I am so surprised so many people like this hotel. We were all very disappointed. A party of 8 (4 adults, 4 children) and we had a good time but this was the company not the hotel. POSITIVES – Food in the main buffet restaurant is amazing. Great service everyone friendly and people being kind and helpful. Food always seemed... More

My wife and kids aged 11,9 and 6 had a week here in October 2015. We've never tried an all inclusive and although I'm sure there are better this was very pleasant. It is not a luxury place or classy but the staff are great and food is excellent (and I'm a bit critical with food). Anybody with energetic kids... More

Had a fantastic week holiday Would certainly recommend and will definitely be going back again. Having been on trip advisor to see other people comments I felt I should of not booked to go. I think we prepare ourselves for the negative things before we already get there, instead of just enjoying the time we have off with family. Entertainment... More
