I have read a lot of the reviews for this hotel and feel the need to put to bed the ridiculous comments about dirty towels, unhelpful staff etc.. This was by far the best holiday i have ever been on. The staff couldn't do enough to help, nothing was too much trouble. Entertainment was round the clock and if you didn't want to get involved in the games then there was a quieter area of the pool to lay by. The place was immaculate, i have never seen so many cleaners, gardeners, maids etc working around the clock to keep the place spotless. Food was good, lots of options to please all palettes. Drinks were replenished in the hotel room every other day however if you ran out early then all you had to do was ask the maid and they always gave us more. The beach is quite rocky but the sea is wonderful and the beach was amazing. The comments about the sunbeds are right.. people do get up early and reserve beds however there was always enough for everybody.. just some people got a better spot than others. Someone did complain about someone reserving a bed very early and not using it and that particular person was asked to move their towel.
I could go on and on about how great this hotel and holiday were but i think i have made my point.. i think a lot of the people complaining on here are simply the type of people that will always find something wrong somewhere... 10 out of 10!!!!
