We had booked all inclusive initially.but then read the reviews about the poor quality of food and quickly changed this to self catering. We arrived at the hotel around 1pm after having been up from 3am to be met with a massive queue to check in.... More

The request was met and we were placed in Avocado block, the entrance overlooking teenage kids club and the balcony overlooking the gardens (better). Yes, the rooms are dated but they are cleaned and you find space for your bits... More
