Stayed at this hotel with a large group of friends for a wedding in September. On arrival, we were allocated a room very close to the main evening bar/swimming pool. Unfortunately we had to move as the electrics didn't work and were given a room by the larger pool near the back of the hotel. What luck this actually was, as the techno music favoured by the hotel would occassionally be pumped out until 2am some nights. The only downside was the newer room was actually mere metres from the hotels zoo enclosure of cockerel, turkey, ducks and whatever else they kept. However, we slept with the aircon on so we actually couldn't hear them at 4am and I don't think they caused any issues for our friends. There was a bit of a whiff around the hotel block sometimes though.
There are a few faults with this place but a few plus points - the location is fabulous. A minutes walk to the main strip of shops, bars and restaurants. The beach is maybe 5 minutes walk. Also, our actual room was quite nice, clean and in good order. We never had any issues with staff, indeed they were pretty helpful. Special mention to the lady in the shop, a real sweetheart.
The main downside for me was probably the food. I'm not very fussy and it took me a good couple of days to realise just how poor it could be at certain times, breakfast especially. To sum up, it was generally a bit repetitive, lukewarm and not always obvious what it even was. That said, the bread was always good, especially the pizza bread. We ended up eating out a couple of times, although that was more to do with wanting to go out as as a group and having a nice evening.
All things considered, I have a soft spot for this place because of my overall wonderful holiday memories. Would I stay here again? Yes, maybe but only if the price justified it. I'm sure there might be a place or two more competitive.
