I have recently returned from a ten night stay at this hotel and I have to say its not bad!!! Of course there are negatives which I will get out of the way. If you are looking for luxury you arnt going to get it here. I was supprised it was a 4 star because some elements look 3 star to me. The pool area is what let it down the most. The sunbeds are really cheap hard plastic and there arnt enough umbrellas and they are all really dirty (I didnt see them cleaned once or the tables and chairs surrounding the pool area) That really let the area down it was all a bit cheap. We ended up nicking the spare blankets fro the room and putting them under our towels for comfort! You also have to get up at the crack of dawn most days to reserve one and they are really close together. The pool is nice and there is a childrens pool if you have children. There is also a jacizzi area on the roof with a small pool but that was always really overcrowded so we only went there once but nice if you can get up there early enough! Also the pool doesnt get the sun til 11am I would prefer going to the fenals beach round the corner from the hotel which was beautiful we went every day but dont get a sunbed unless your loaded (2x sunbeds and an umbrella was 16 euros!!!) It was fine just lying on towels as the sand didnt really stick. The sea was clear and great for swimming in we loved the beach!
The rooms are ok really but not many pillows. They were very clean and cleaned daily. The only negative of the rooms is that you can hear EVERYTHING from the other rooms on the floor and every morning about 5am when the clubs inthe town closed there were drunken yobs (mainly germans) running up and down the corridors so bring earplugs if your a light sleeper.
The all inclusive system was great we barely spent anythingon food and drink our entire stay. The drinks come in plastic glasses but they were fine and safer by the pool. You can get 2 drinks at a time of local spirits and soft drinks which were ok and they had a cocktail of the day that was included too! This was our first time going all inclusive and would definately do it again we drank loads and didnt spend money!
The food was all served in the dining hall which was quite noisy but not too bad. It was all buffet style food and there are loads of choice we always found something we could eat but into the second week it all got a bit repetitive, The deserts and fruit selection was great too and we didnt find the food too cold as they replenish it all the time. Ithought the food was nice and good value as there arnt many restaurants in lloret and they are quite expensive.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. On our first night my mattress was really lumpy and we spoke to reception and they changed it to a new one straight away and would give extra towels if we asked,
We also went on a couple of trips organised by the hotel. We spent a day in barcelona seeing Gaudis church then 5 hours shopping time at the ramblas which took about 40 mins to get to and only cost 15 euros each return (good value) Barcelona is great to look around and they do other tours showing more sights if thats what you want. We also went to the water world which we wernt too impressed at it was 25 euros each and i thought it was very expensive and overcrowded and very hilly. Its not a patch on waterworld in cyprus I wouldnt go there again not enough rides and the queues were over an hour long! A good thing is the hotel can provide a packed lunch which isnt amazing but will see you through you get a drink some snacks, a sandwich and some fruit!
Now to the area. There is a nice pub over the road from the hotel called robin hood and the main town is about 10-15 mins walk but the best souvineer shops were near the hotel but all fairly expensive as spain tends to be these days. The main town has lots of clubs and it seems to be the german and dutch version of Ibiza! We didnt go clubbing but there were nice bars that did great cocktail for good value.
The hotel does entertainment everynight and its good if you have kids as there is akids disco and usually a singer or a dance act for the adults afterwards and of course can drink free drinks all night so cheap alternative. There is also bowling and crazy golf up teh road for kids and the kids at the hotel all seemed to like it. There were also quite a few british people which was nice as made a good atmosphere at the hotel.
Overall I would recommend it as a very good value for money holiday but would go for 7 days as not enough to do for longer than that!
