Currently spending our last day at the hotel after a 2 week stay. When I booked the holiday I requested a pool view however when we arrived we were given a room over looking the 'slums' and a sex shop. I asked if they could resolve the room issue and they said yes but there would be a cost to upgrade to the alexander rooms. All that was different in the room was a pool view. The cost of this is €8 per person per night so cost £184 for 13 nights.
Now the food is whole different story! Breakfast is edible but lunch and dinner are terrible. If you like rabbit and raw ribs you will be fine. The other people who have said that the food is good must have extremely low standards. It was that bad, that after arguing the toss for 4 days I had my money refunded by thomson. However the rep for thomson TJ was fab and so helpful, it was her manager that was difficult.
The beginning of the holiday was a complete disaster. Also you have to pay €2 per night for the safe and €39 for wifi for 2 weeks, it is very tempremental mind. Everything is also charged to your room so u end up with a huge bill at the end of the holiday.
please be aware of the hidden costs.
However if you are coming on a bed and breakfast board basis and you have a superior room then you will have a lovely time. The staff are friendly and very good with children. The entertainment is good, and the charlie chaplin show is fantastic. The rooms are clean.
The hotel location is great, u can walk left for 5 minutes and be in the up market part of town with nice restaurants and designer shops. Or walk right for 5 minutes and be in the part of town with cheaper restaurants and bars.
Avoid the chinese merlin next to the hotel on the right, it is awful and u will probably end up with a dodgy tummy.
Must go to the 'the house' restaurant near santander bank (walk right out of hotel for 5 mins).
Supermarket michel accross the road from hotel is fab. They even bake fresh in shop.
If you have a baby, I have found the right milk difficult to buy, however there are alternatives.
We have met a lot of people on this holiday and all have said the food is appalling.
We are not snobby people. We are a couple aged 27 and 21 with a 20 month old baby.
Please dont listen to the good food reviews, you will be very disappointed.
