having just returned from a "cheeky week" holiday to escape the winter blues time to reflect on the holiday.This is a spacious hotel but not so big as to be unfriendly as some of them can be.Check in is warm and welcoming and very quick considering a coach full of us arrived.The room was a good size with a partial sea view and very clean.The bathroom was clean and the walk in shower a really good size and the added bonus of toiletries even toothbrushes and toothpaste a suprise..Bed linen very clean and cosy , tv receiving english channels and free safe and fridge and even towels to take round the pool and of course the ever popular white fluffy bathrobe were an added bit of luxury.All public areas of the hotel were very clean and comfortable, as was the pool area and snack bar.The dining room is bright and spacious and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.Now the food which is quite often a bone of contention to some travelers, I can honestly say that it was up there with the best i have tried.A great selection every night of both english and spanish dishes , hot dishes were superbly displayed and most importantly hot! Salads varied and very well presented and desserts also of a high standard.I personly thanked the chef for the food we had eaten as he was ever present checking everything was up to standard.I often feel the front of house staff always receive praise and rightly so but always try to find time to thank back of house staff too as they work extremely hard and it is no mean feat cooking for several hundred people on a nightly basis.
Whilst we were there i think my husband and i were amongst the youngest in this hotel and we are both in our 60,s but entertainment was varied and pretty good and the added bonu of happy hour from 8,30 till 10pm not to be sniffed at.We were unable to get a seat in the entertainment area during our stay purely because the " long stayers" have their evening meal at 5.30 and then settle there but we could still hear the acts whilst sitting in the comfortable foyer area on the sofas. All in all a very nice hotel that does what it says on the tin.Give it a go.
