We arrived on 30/12/12 and it was our first holiday on our own in 17 years! The hotel had xmas decorations up and a good effort made. We were on the 3rd floor of block 14 and had a great view overlooking the complex and sea, our standard room was perfect for the 2 of us, bed was really big and comfy and room great with tv, en suite and plenty big enough. Clean room and towels changed every day. Quiet pool was heated so it wasnt really quiet when we went as most people with kids were there for obvious reasons, although we've been here before during the summer and it really is the quiet pool as the main pool and kids pools area are really good (although not heated in winter). We stayed on the beach which is just for the hotel and has a bar and snack area, it was so tranquill and relaxing. The 'sand' isnt soft but its fine so long as you dont want to build sand castles! There are evening bars in the main building and also an adult only bar seperate, which is where the indian, thai and mediteranian restuarants are, all of which were lovely and you can book 1 meal per week in each - recomended! The adult evening bar is good as well as the adult only breakfast restuarant - result! Dont mistake this for the coral sea, which is another first choice hotel, this is the holiday village, both are great though. New Years Eve - what can I say - its was absolutely fantastic! Massive marquee with fairy lights head to foot and decor gorgeous, it was so nice and food fab it was lovely enough to be a great wedding venue! It was a fantastic night and the whole first choice and hotel staff did a brilliant job. I gave it 5 star/excellant because they did so well for new years eve, otherwise it would have been 'very good' as it needs a touch of paint in places (stairwells, comunal places - rooms are great though). I would deffo go back.
