We have just returned from our holiday. It's a nice modern hotel but the entertainment and activities all in German making it difficult to join in. Although the staff are friendly, most of the waiting staff speak German and make little attempt to chat with English guests. The restaurant is open for dinner from 6.30 - 9pm : it's heaving until 8ish but if you go down any later the waiters are reluctant to re-lay the tables and the food gets cleared away from 8.45pm. Meals are not enjoyable - you are constantly getting up and queuing for food, only to return to your table to find that your drinks have been cleared away.
We ate at the a la carte restaurants. The only choice is for the main course - otherwise it is really a set menu. We were very disappointed with the Asian restaurant - the Sushi starter seemed to be just rice (no fish) and the main course (on both occasions that we ate there) arrived luke warm. The Mexican is the better choice - particularly the fajitas.
There were a couple of gala nights during our stay where the food is served out by the swimming pool. The food choice / presentation was excellent but we did see semi cooked chicken being served where the chefs couldn't cook it in time to meet demand.
Usual thing with the reserving of sun loungers - except even worse here was that guests were reserving loungers at the pool, then going down to the beach for the morning before arriving back at the pool at lunchtime!!
We enjoyed the holiday and the hotel can't be faulted for facilities and private beach but if you want relaxing meal times and entertainment in the evening this hotel may not be for you.
