We had a great holiday here, however if you are expecting a 5 star it's not. We were there in August and it was very busy and felt like the hotel didn't have enough staff to cope. Food was good but small selection in buffet, Chinese was ok, but Italian not great. Due to the apparent understaffing problem many of... More

Great all round holiday. Loads of activities for young and old, plenty of food choices with fabulous omelette's for breakfast. Lovely glass of sparkling wine on arrival. We arrived late at night and a cold buffet was provided. The staff are friendly and very welcoming but hats off to the animation team who are superb.

Arrived at 12:30. Reception staff were great, a glass of bubbly on arrival. Arriving early we were hoping to take advantage of our first afternoon, unfortunately we didn't get our room until 15:30 so a bit of a wasted afternoon wandering round waiting to get our room. This did seem to be a bit of a problem for anyone arriving... More

We first came here at Easter and I was already asking when we could return again before we left! I didn't have long to wait as the rest of my family agreed it was the best place we've ever been. We retuned again the end of July and instantly regretted not booking for longer than 11 nights. Some of the... More

Having just returned from 10 nights I'm normally pretty depressed to be home, not quite on this occasion ... In my opinion This isn't a five star hotel, four at best. There was definitely a bug of some kind going round the hotel while we were there most likely due to the poor hygiene standards in particular in the Italian... More

Just returned home after a lovely week at the Dream Grand Castillo resort. Our room had sea/pool view and was very spacious, we had maid service and towels changed daily. The food was fantastic, there was plenty of choice, we didn't feel the need to eat out. All areas of the hotel were kept very clean, the staff were all... More

Got back yesterday after 2 weeks of sunshine, excellent food and service. Only criticisms were having to get up early to get sunbeds and the animation team were quite poor but overall an excellent hotel which I will definitely visit again.

We stayed here in August for 2 weeks. My Wife, Son (15) and me. The staff and porters at check-in were fantastic. We had a hire car and parked on the street outside and then went in to see where we could park. The porter took the car keys from us and went off to park the car in the... More
