So the good stuff: The hotel animation team, and the staff around the hotel were very friendly and efficient, the food was good but don't go near the unpasturised cheese, rooms were clean and OK, facilities on the beach were good (although some of these were not run by the hotel, and ALL cost money), and the bar was what you might expect.
The bad stuff: If you want to play tennis on the 7 courts that the Phenicia boasts, forget it, unless you are happy to play on a court with a surface rougher that a freshly planed road, and you like dealing with a 'tennis coach' who really doesn't want you there, tells everyone they are fat and unfit (neither of which apply to us) and is possibly the rudest person on the face of the plannet. Also be ready for strangers who have just arrived at the hotel, to wander into your room at any time; proper control over the room allocations and keys, doesn't exist. As for the inclusive Gym, it's not inclusive, same for the WiFi, which doesn't work anyway. Don't pay fpr the safe in your room because it is open when yoiu arrive and you can set your own code. As for the reception staff; they are very well trained in the art of complete indifference.
So in conclusion: if you just want a pool or beach, food and drinks great! If you want to do any sport, or other fun activities, either forget it, or get you wallet out!
