My wife and I stayed here with our 18 month old child for 1 week. Our room was very clean and well maintained. We stayed in a studio room which wasn't huge but big enough for us. We had a fridge, microwave, kettle and small hob. We had a small balcony area which got some sun in the afternoon (good for drying swimming shorts). The staff were always pleasant and the housekeeping staff would always chat away to our son which he loved.
The pool area is fantastic. Despite being told that reserving sun loungers was forbidden, there was always a queue at the doors to the pool for people to claim their sun loungers for the day. I was at the pool for 9 o'clock every day and had no problems getting loungers where we wanted them (near the kids pool). The kids pools (there are 2) are perfect for the little ones. One pool is the same depth throughout, the other has a shallow and 'deep' end. The adult pool is huge and despite it being busy at peak times, there was still plenty of room for more people. The majority of sun loungers are on the grassy area which surrounds the pool. The grass is a great idea, especially for our son who is still a little unsteady on his feet. There is also an indoor pool which is heated. Beside the pool there is an indoor kids play area with soft toys etc.. And also a playstation for the bigger kids.
We didn't use the restaurant so can't comment on this.
The bar was ok. We only went in a few times but it always seemed quiet. There is not much in the way of entertainment but this didn't bother us in the slightest as we were out every night anyway.
The hotel is in a great location. Roughly half way between the old town and the strip. The strip was a bit lively for us with our son being so young, so we just went to the old town every day/night which was much more family friendly. There is also a commercial centre directly opposite the hotel which has a McDonalds and KFC and some bars, cafes and shops. There is a large supermarket right next door to the hotel. Next to the hotel lobby there is a patisserie which make some of the nicest cakes I've ever tried in my life. At night, we would skip dessert at whatever restaurant we ate at and nipped into the patisserie on our way back to our room. This is highly recommended :-)
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate in coming back to this hotel in the future.
