After reading all the reviews I wasn't sure about this hotel and was put off however I went with my bestfriend 5th july-12th july 2013. The hotel was nowhere near as bad as expected! luckily I was expecting the worst after reading all the reviews though. Going on a girls holiday at 18 I wasn't looking for a luxury hotel, just somewhere to sleep and drink! Our rooms were standard, the air conditioning worked thankfully! We were staying on the 6th floor, the only downside was the lift didn't go to our level so we either had to walk up a level or walk down. The rooms were clean and the maids did leave our rooms if we put the 'do not disturb' sign on. I did hear off a couple of lads who we met on the first night that they had money stole from their rooms and they brought a safe but after reading the reviews, I preferred to hide my money and phone/ipods instead of paying for a safe I was still unsure about and thankfully we had nothing stolen! The receptionists were very helpful, no problems! the bar men were lovely the whole holiday, we did tip the bar men, this was our choice but either way they treat everyone the same! the pool was tiny, never went in the pool the whole holiday. when we went the holiday was mostly full of lads and very few girls so all the lads were playing in the pools. bring your own towels! The food was okay, wasn't expecting a great deal, never got up for breakfast but they always had chips, breads, fresh fruit, soups etc. The few nights we actually ate at the hotel there was hot dogs, burgers, spag bol, pastas, rice so wasn't too bad! myself and my friend often went to eat at the English bar across from the hotel, the food was good and cheap! we took out around 30-40 euros each night, and pre drank until 12 at the hotel, I took around 300 euros, probably take abit more next time! it was about a 10 minute walk to the strip but we always stopped at different pubs on the way, don't go in to a bar unless they give you a good deal, walk away if not there will be plenty more! I regret not doing many things, we only did a pub crawl and uv paint party through alex's lounge. The hotel right next to hsm was a complete nightmare, that hotel was also full of lads who really did enjoy themselves abit too much! They threw glass, objects, plastic chairs, anything they can get there hands on so be careful when walking by as they have no respects for others and will shout rude stuff to any girls! there are prostitutes around the park which is very close to the hotel, just avoid them and don't talk to them and we had no problems, if they said hello we would be polite back and say hello, they always smiled and that was that. It was amusing seeing them getting picked up early hours in the morning! The last night wasn't the best as we stayed sober because of getting picked up at 6am to go home, we had no sleep all night. I'd go here again but after speaking to others at the hotel whilst I was there, they paid less for the hotel so make sure you do your research!
