This was our 6th visit, and 2nd visit this year. We arrived on our 28th Wedding Anniversary. We were greeted with a glass of cava, and the porter, who after checking in took our luggage to our room. We booked with Monarch Holidays, and could only book a street view room so we had already e-mailed about upgrading to a pool view. The extra charge was paid direct to the hotel, 7 euros per person per night, so for 3 people 294 euros. I think the street view rooms had a lot of building work outside of them. The pavements and roads are being upgraded.
The hotel was excellent as always. The staff are all wonderful expecially Eva, Christian and Ursula, (the manager). Also Fatima, Romano, Louis (Pool Bar), provided an excellent service. We asked for some robes, more pillows and BBC was not working on our TV, all were sorted out quickly and efficiently. In fact all of the staff including cleaners and pool service were professional and courteous. They also recognised us from our previous holidays.
The food and drink were of a high standard, with different themes most nights, including Chinese, Mexican, etc. There was always a carvery and show cooking in the evenings. The desserts are so lovely, and my favourite was the penguin cakes. On my last day Eva, came to our table and brought us all a plate full of them.
As recommended by Ursula, we also drank lumumba, which we enjoyed.
You can hire pool towels for 10 euro deposit, you can hire the safe for 2 euros a day.
There was daytime entertainment for all ages, including french bowls, table tennis, darts, rifle shooting. There was also evening entertainment.
Yet again another wonderful holiday with great food and drink and management who will always go the extra mile to provide all holiday makers with an excellent service, that is why so many people return every year just like us.
We are planning on going back in March for our birthdays and in August for our wedding anniversary.
A special thank you to Eva, and looking forward to next March.
