stayed at this hotel from 28 june to 12 july. This was our 3rd time visiting this hotel, had a lovely holiday location is perfect for beach and the old town which is really lively at night. Food and drinks as always were exceptional, cleanliness of hotel and rooms lst class, staff very attentive helpful and polite. Entertainment was ok glad to see they still have Tony singing, he really is a character. Was a bit disappointed that all the entertainment was inside this time the bar gets very crowded and stuffy but I believe this was due to weather conditions at the time, was very windy and a bit chilly some evenings, so understandable.
The thing that really let it down for us this year was the change of animation team. We don,t have young children but this is a family hotel and there has always been a lot of kids there and it has never been a problem due to the great team in previous years. Last year the guy in charge was brilliant always something for the kids to do during day was never a problem. The guy in charge now does nothing except come on the mike and tell everyone its going to rain every day then disappears, comes back in the afternoon to announce a pool game in the bar and that's it!!
Don't see him again till the evening maybe!! We spoke to several people that were there with their children and they all said that the kids were bored. Therefore there was always kid running around screaming and being a nuisance because there was nothing else for them to do!! One couple actually said that they loved the hotel but would not return because of this. I really do think this needs to be sorted because it letting down what would otherwise be a fanyastic hotel for couples and families alike.
We love this hotel but probably won,t return next year.
