This was our second visit to this Couples hotel.
Nothing new to add to the good points made in other posts (fantastic staff, excellent food, lovely grounds, etc.) all these things made us go back.
Unfortunately as another reviewer has already pointed out sun bed blocking has really arrived at this hotel. On our previous visit very few beds were taken and it was always possible to find a lounger with some shade.
We are early risers and would usually be on the beach by 7.30 am. We certainly found that even by that time the majority of the loungers (on SSB) with shade had been taken - we even watched a staff member placing towels on one group of beds on behalf of guests.
It happens all over the world but it is a shame it is now happening here.
On our last visit (peak season over Christmas) SSB was a haven of tranquility. This time the pool at SSB was dominated by one (very loud) group who treated the pool area as their own private party place. We all like to have a good time on holiday but the hotel management did nothing to monitor this on behalf of other paying guests.
We would like to return to this hotel but we cancelled a repeat booking for later this year because of the above. It may be an isolated incident or it may be a trend but ...
