My 2 friends and I stayed here in June and we had a great time. We had private taxi transfers with our travel company, Purple travel, and this really made the journey quick and easy. I would not say this is a 5 star, more a 4 star, but it was good value for money. The rooms were basic but sufficient and any issues we had were sorted out quickly. The pools were lovely and the fun park drew the kids away, so you could get a decent swim and a bit of relaxation. The main restaurant was more like a canteen but food was plentiful with a good selection and we noticed the kitchen leading off from the restaurant looked spotless. The cocktails were a bit hit and miss, I recommend the Mojito, but you did not have to queue and there was always a bar open. It is useful if you can speak a little bit of French as this is the language predominately spoken.
A word of warning about the spa: my friend and I booked a Hamman spa package and a massage based on the free massages we received from the owner/manager around the pool, which were very good. However he does not seem to actually do the massages in the spa. We both had several interruptions during our individual massages and at one point I realised my massuese was actually on her mobile phone! The girls do not speak any English so they have difficulty communicating if you do not speak French. The spa only take cash, sterling included, and want the payment up front. Make sure you get your change first otherwise you probably won't receive it.
Overall we would definitely recommend the hotel and would consider returning in the future.
