Overall we were very pleased with the hotel. Went with our two young children and made good use of the pool and beach facilities. Room was very nice and appointed exactly as expected though could have used a little more light and better air conditioning.
The grounds of the hotel are simply gorgeous- romantic for adults and plenty of cute bridges and fun paths for little ones to explore. Children only did the kids club twice but had great things to say.
Breakfast was delicious and had so many options. Lovely. Other than breakfast only ate on the property at the del mar and the pool bar. Can't say we were terribly impressed with either and honestly I found the €19 euro children's meal insane (for reference, my children are 4 & 7). Children's meals were that cost at every restaurant on the property and the food we encountered just didn't warrant the price. In addition, we tried to book a few dinners for our stay upon arrival and the hotel was almost completely booked. I do think people staying at the hotel should have first rights to reservations- perhaps we'd have more positive things to say if we'd had more opportunity. That said, service at the hotel, from housekeeping to bar service etc was superb.
We especially loved having drinks after dinner at the plaza area and we enjoyed the entertainment though I'd second what someone else said about providing some variety.
Helpful hints? Book ahead if you want to eat there. Wifi there is rubbish so be prepared. Palapas by the beach are free to hotel guests but right next to the free ones someone has set up a bunch and charges for them. Actually super cheap at €7 but not when compared to free! Spa is small and not a lot of options so I went to Marbella club next door which was wonderful and a sister property so they could just charge to my room. Wonderful place overall though of course some small improvements could be made.
