This was my third visit to the Hotel and my wife's second. I first visited with my parents way back in 1976 (!) and my wife and I came here in 2007 with our kids who were then 10 and 8. It was great then and this time just the two of us for a restful week. This really is a 5* plus hotel. But what makes it good is not the general facilities or ambiance but the staff - at all levels. They really make an effort to make you feel welcome and important to them - they were all smiles all the time. If you are looking for a Spa hotel - this is it. The Thai themed spa gardens are deliciously quiet, with relaxing pools and a full range of massage treatments - or you can just slowly enjoy the steam rooms and sauna. For families this is also a good hotel, under 16s cant go to the Spa area but the main pool is a good size and during July and August there is a kids club including excursions to Loro Parque. As a couple having a week while our teenage children enjoyed organised trips abroad elsewhere, this was ideal. We went B&B. The Breakfast is huge. We never had lunch! Evenings were split between the hotel's excellent Italian restaurant (there are three restaurants plus poolside) and local fayre just outside the hotel. All enjoyable. The rooms are comfortable, maybe a little dated but there are plenty of older hotels around the world which have older style rooms. The main foyer and bar area is large with plenty of space and the gardens are great for an after breakfast walk. My only negative which we fed back to the hotel was that the shower (despite being a well known brand) was a bit on the weak side and could be upgraded - but that's being a bit picky. There really is not anything to complain about. Service wise it was comparable to that we have enjoyed in the Far East.
We will be returning!
