As many others have stated, this is one of the best hotels we have been to. The staff are polite, friendly & so attentive it would be rude to try & criticise.
24 hour room service, 6 a la carte restaurants plus a world buffet, all excellent & on a par with any top restaurant in the UK.
With 80% occupancy there were still plenty of sun beds avaliable every day. Activities in the pool should you wish to use, volleyball & aerobics, got to try & make space for the next meal!
After your meal a cocktail goes down perfectly in fact before the meal it went down just as well.
If there was not a seat availble outside, then you were given an alerter that vibrated when a table came up, usually about 20 minutes. Oh well another cocktail.
We had the sun on our patio first thing up to about 11. This was March so I would expect this to extend as the sun got higher later in the year, not an issue as it wss nice to come back to the room for a little shade.
I did dive a couple of times & was not completely impressed with the hotels choice of setup. The boat & skipper were fine but they did not want to go deep as it would have extendd the morning dive. They like to get 2 dives in between 9.30 and 12. Deep dives would prevent this due to longer surface intervals. Shop around & check your equipment thoroughly, I took my own from previous experiences.
Finally there is always the beach for peace & quiet & you still get waiter surface to you sun bed. Whole range of age groups from 20's to 60+. Not an issuge with anyone as there is something for all.
We did not use the spar, little expensive we thought but your choice.
As were from the UK it took a few days to sleep through the night but the beds were very comfortable & big.
All this & no kids.
