(NOT a family hotel)
I only read a few reviews before I went to this hotel and they all seemed great. I have just got back from my lads holiday and the hotel was fantastic. The positioning was great because it was only a few hundred yards away from the main strip at one end so you got none of the noise when you finally rolled in at about 6am and could get a peaceful night sleep. Because it’s at one end of the main strip its great for doing bar crawls and if you’re lucky McDonalds will be open when you get to the end! (Although I would recommend a kebab from one of the kebab houses).
The bad room reviews I have read are harsh to say the least. All rooms are fitted with air conditioning that goes down to 16 degrees (I woke up shivering most mornings!) and for 60euro you get a lock box and the AC remote (recommended). The rooms are properly cleaned about twice a week but while I was there the cleaner cam in every day and did a quick once over. You only get one loo role in your room but all you have to do is ask the cleaner for a new one… its not rocket science. There are cooking facilities under the sink and you will have all your plates and cutlery along with a plug in hob, kettle and pots and pans so you can cook pretty much anything that needs to be boiled or fried. The fridge works and there is a built in freezer but I would recommend putting watch and thing in the freezer because they will not freeze over night.
The pool is nice and cool when it’s a hot day and the small Jacuzzi doesn’t turn you or your clothes a funny colour so don’t worry! I would recommend however staying away from the pool after about 7:30pm because that’s when they put all the chemicals in the pool to clean it (this is done every day)
The staff are fantastic and really friendly and so are the 2wentys reps. The deals the reps offer are good but if you don’t fancy doing them they wont bother you however if you are going to do something, I would highly recommend the booze cruse. They have the biggest boat and the best games. When I went, 2 lads from a different boat jumped off theirs and joined ours because we were having more fun! If you do fancy going on it I would get a good nights sleep because its an early start at 9am and being on a boat only makes a hangover worse!
Overall I thought this hotel amazing and just what you would want out of a partying holiday. There is a 24 hour bar, friendly staff, nice pool, clean rooms and a cheap shop next door for food, water and VODKA!
