Was very impressed with the resort, staff and food . Went with an open mind after reading a few of the negative comments but this proved to be unfounded. The food choices I thought were spot on as i hate too much choice , there were always different choices from lunch and at dinner and didn't see the same dish twice in the 5 days that we stayed - The fish dishes and pasta together with the salad bar was superb and loved the house wines. Well done chefs !!
Yes the Apple bar is tiny , but once the warmer evening weather is here there will be plenty of room outside on the terraces. The bar/ restaurant staff are an absolute credit !!
Loved the age range of visitors , most of which seemed to be from the uk . It's a resort for everyone to enjoy .
As we were leaving the hotel seemed to be gearing up to the high season by bringing in more tables and chairs to the pool bar which improved seating lots and I`m sure more sunbeds will be on there way too.
What I thought was great :
Was the free bottled water - individual or large bottles included in the AL .
The full English breakfast choice.
Good vegetarian options.
No charge for pool towels.
All inclusive option as soon as you arrive and from when you leave - excellent !
The only things I would loved to see improved : is the lighting being turned on at night around the paths and pools and the choices of cakes added to the all inclusive afternoon snack menu and you know us "English" love our afternoon tea !
