From reading all the reveiws here I was positive that we were gonna have a fab time. However that was not to be so.
The food was alright bar the once my husband got food poisoing and the twice I did, so thus after this feeding time became a bit of a chore. Also down at the pool restaurant the chickens and hens were allowed to room through the restaurant, which I thought was extremely un-hygenic especially with soo many young children running about.
The night entertainment was not our cup of tea and to be truthful we would have described it as suicidal. The shows are basically the same every night and unless you like cabaret and the shouting of one, two, three, super, super and onze, douze, trez (excuse the spelling) every single night you are gonna be mighty peeved with the nightly torture.
The disco - well to call it a disco or nite club is an insult to any well run disco. The music is exactly the same each evening. However the truck half out of the wall does look mighty cool, such a pity about the repeated music as it has the potential to be fantastic. There is also air conditioning in there as well which can provide much needed cool air at times!!
Bar all of the above, the rest of the hotel was lovely, the beach was lovely and clean, cleaned every morning. The rooms were nice and spacious, we had upgraded to a junior suite.
But would I recommend this place .......... in two words NO WAY!!
