We didn't pay much so our expectation levels were low. All we thought we would get was watered down drinks, chips and a pool in the sun. It was so much better than that.
The staff were a bit overworked but they were friendly and lovely with the children (6 & 8). It meant you could wait at the bar for a while if you timed it badly - but you could see the bar from anywhere so it was simple to see when would be a good time to go.
The food was really good. Yes, there were chips for those who're looking for England away from England but there was also plently of Spanish food. Lots to choose from and much better quality than anticipated - I'm a food snob and I was happy.
The all inclusive spirits were 'own brand' so if you wanted Gordon's gin you'd have to pay but Joe Bloggs' random gin was free. The ones I drank were good and there seemed to be plenty to choose from. The wine wasn't the best so one glass at the beginning of the week was enough! The beer was good - not cheap and nasty. Sangria and mojitos were on tap and free too :-)
The bungalow was clean and had its own tiny sun-filled yard at the back: completely private but really only meant for drying clothes (good for swimming costumes). The bungalow would be better if the bedroom could be separated in some way from the lounge - even by a curtain which pulled across. Our kids slept on a bed and the sofa in the lounge while we were in the bedroom.
The next thing is the only real piece of criticism I have. The main bed was two singles pushed together. I wouldn't have expected it in a 4*. It wouldn't have been so bad if the mattresses hadn't been completely collapsed and awful. It meant you could feel the metal ridge around the edge if you lay on it so there was no chance of snuggling up. After night one my husband's back was twingy so we swapped sides - his mattress should have been condemned because the springs had all sprung! It was nice and quiet at night though so not the end othe world.
It was safe and the pool was just the right size. The kids loved it and swam, played air hockey and pool and well as on the climbing frames etc in the play area. We had a great holiday.
