pool opening

Hello...We are just finalising our lads weekend away in april..flights, transfers booked and we are in the middle of booking hotel..We are looking at MS Alay because we think this will suit a bunch of lads better..Just one or two questions before we book..I know april will be cool enough but will the pool be open at this time and they also have a pool bar and was wondering would this also be open...we are coming from Ireland so any bit of sunlight will be warm to us..Thanks in advance

Hi there

The Alay will suit you perfectly. Regarding the pool, i doubt it very much. You won't get me in it much before 1st week in June as it's just too cold.

Also, many pools depending on specifications have to by law have lifeguards and as a consequence they tend to only employ them for the summer months - June to September.

The apartments Doramar on Sirocco hill have a pool that is open year round for those (fool)hardy enough to use it. Open to non residents too at 3€ for sunbed/pool, poolside bar open every day too.

Thanks lads for the replies...i know the water will be freezing but just chilling by the pool with the option of diving into cold water is a good way to nurse a hangover. Cheers
