Stayed here mid June for two weeks. The rooms are spotless and spacious although I had to let Reception know that our towels were not changed on the 4th day (I think by being tidy and hanging them up daily was misinterpreted as not needing them changed?). We had a second floor Apartment overlooking the garden and it suited us fine as it was lovely and cool due to not receiving any sunshine at all. The beds are hard but we are used to firm mattresses.
We ate a few times at the poolside Restaurant and the food was really lovely and tasty but a tad pricey compared to locally - think it cost around €33 for lunch for 3 of us but it was good.
Unfortunately there was no entertainment at night apart from music on a Wednesday evening when they had their BBQ. Suggestion for the hotel -might be a good idea to organise Water Polo/Tennis/darts etc.or perhaps buy a Table Tennis table for the young teens (esp boys!) and organise mini tournaments during the day to keep them occupied.
I was disappointed in the monitoring of the reservation of sun loungers by those that didn't appear until late afternoon (usual saga), it was only apparent when a certain member of staff was on duty. Also I never saw the sun loungers or the pool area being hosed down at the end of the day, although the bar staff did clean up, pick up everyone's rubbish that was left behind and tidied the whole area.
The free Wifi is hit and miss in Reception but you can pay for wifi in your room for a nominal fee!
Overall the Hotel is perfectly suited to families with older teenagers and the location is good also for those heading to the 'Strip'. I definitely would not have chosen this hotel if our children were much younger due to lack of entertainment for them during the day.
Finally I have to say the Staff on Reception were lovely, (hi Jonathan) and the cleaning staff too - especially the 'wee' happy one that constantly smiled.
