Just got back after 2weeks for our 5th visit still as good as the first time. We were made VIP guests for being repeat visitors and received fruit and wine, gift and special meal with management, where we were told of plans for next years renovations which I must say are needed. The hotel plans look amazing. Can't wait to... More

Although this hotel had been recommended to us some of the negative reviews had made us a little apprehensive! However, we need not have worried as the holiday turned out to be everything we wished for and more! Yes there are a lot of steps around this hotel, but they were manageable both going up and down, despite the intense... More

Before reviewing this hotel in detail, for the benefit of other British tourists thinking of booking this hotel, please do not be put off by some of the inaccurate stuff written by (some) fellow Brits about the nationalities staying at the hotel. You will see when you scroll down that one said something like 98% Germans and 2% British and... More

If you have walking or breathing difficulties don't go to this hotel. The lifts only go to two floors above the pool area, walking down was manageable but going back up was a killer. Hotel is in need of up- dating, bedroom was a boring brown/ beige drab colour. Air con not good enough to keep the room cool.

We spent an excellent week here in early July and could find little to fault. The variety and quality of food was wonderful with visits to three of the four a la carte restaurants within the hotel during the week - our favourite was the Italian. Lots of efforts from the entertainments team to involve guests in pool games during... More

Before I booked this trip I had read several reviews from people who felt that the high population of Germans that holidayed at this resort somehow ruined their experience, all I can say is that I was glad I ignored these reviews and went ahead with my booking. We had a lovely weeks holiday here and would happily return, not... More

I booked this holiday for myself and 3 friends through First Choice and we visited between 8-16th July 2014. Overall, I couldn’t really fault the hotel, it is the staff that let down the whole experience. The hotel guests are 98% German and 2% British and if you are not German then you are not treated particularly well. This is... More

Just arrived back after an excellent weeks break, much needed. The only fault I could find with the hotel was the poor service by some of the waiting staff in the main buffet restaurant. It was clear that our German cousins received a much better standard of service than the British guests. We observed half full glasses being placed on... More
