We stayed in this hotel for a week from the 17th -24th of September. We booked through alpha rooms and got a great deal. We then decided to use Resort hop but they brought us to the wrong hotel down the road and we had to walk with our bags. my advice is too look at the hotel photo's of the entrance and make sure when your dropped off that it looks the same.
The location is amazing!!! yes it is on a busy road but just a few steps to the right you have loads of lovley places to eat etc.. The pool is very impressive and one thing that i though was nice is that they have loads of floating beds/toys that anyone can use. I imagine they were left over from other guests but it was a nice touch that they kept them around so that people could us them. The grass area is cool and gets lots of sun.
wi fi- the hotel does not have free wi fi and you have to pay for a card that cost €2 for 25mins, which is a shame as everywhere else it's free. So my advice is to go next door to Bar and log on while you have a drink.
We have a room on the first floor and it was very clean and totally perfect for what we needed it for. I do agree about the shower curtain thing as everytime i had one the bathroom floor got soaked so i think maybe that's some think for the hotel to look at as i ended up each time using the towels to clean up.
We opted to go to the beach near the hotel. Take a left when you go out of hotel, cross the road and take the first right(follow sign post for Santa Eulalia restaurant) go straight down the dirt road. Yes there is a small hill but honesty its not that steep. it takes about 7 minutes to get there. It is a wonderful beach and costs €12 for two sunbeds and umbrella. We opted to buy a umbrella in shop near beach for €10 and lie on the sand. The waves and water are totally unreal and we had such fun. A must to go see!!!!.
I had read reviews about Teasers pub/restaurant next door and it was all that people said. We ate there everyday as found it so friendly with George looking after us very well. The Beer is €1.50 for an ice cold pint and you can a 3 course meal including a drink for €8 pp. I had salmon and my boyfriend had steak it was very tasty indeed.
We ate in all of the restaruants around and they are all worth a visit.
There is one just right up past the hotel by the roundabout across the road.
We walked to it you just go right outside the hotel right again at the roundabout and then keep walking till you get to the roundabout with the waterfall in the middle.turn left and then walk about five mintues and the strip in on your left hand side. We only went in there two nights and found it loud and busy. There where lots of stag and hen parties in there!!!
It cost about €5 in a taxi and it is so worth it as it is so beautiful and has a much calmer and friendlier atmosphere. We ate in very quaint little restaurants and had drinks sitting on bean bags on the beach under the moonlight. Totally magical.
We decided to go to thispark and WOW WOW WOW it was the best fun that i have ever had at a water park. The rides are totally amazing!!!!!! It cost €32.50 pp and we opted to take sandwiches with usandget drinks there. We took along our umbrella and spent time lying onthe grass area resting after a busy time in the water. Iwould so recomen everyone to go to this park.
Overall we really had a fantastic holiday and would go back to this hotel.
