Im afraid I was very disappointed with this hotel, after the excellent traveller ratings and reviews on trip advisor I was really looking forward to my holiday.
We stayed in the Tordos, which really is the poor relation, as the mirlos is much more modern, bright and airy, although we ended up eating at the Tordos most of the time because the queue for food was not quite as long as the Mirlos restaurant, where it really did feel like feeding time at the zoo.
My most vivid memories of this hotel will be queue, queue, queue, we had to queue every time we wanted a drink, (you need to employ another bartender), sometimes you were waiting there in the sweltering heat for ages, we queue for the lifts, we que for the sunbeds at the crack of dawn otherwise there was no chance of getting one, even although at the start of the holiday we were adamant that we would not do this.
The size of the pools were absolutely ridiculous for the amount of people staying there, two huge hotels all trying to squeeze into 2 small pools, the larger of the two pools was absolutely freezing because it was in the shade all day, so the smallest pool was packed, and then half the pool was sectioned off in the afternoon for water polo, where an accident is waiting to happen, with the ball constantly being thrown at full force around the sunbeds where unsuspecting people were trying to relax, there really is not enough room or a big enough pool for those sort of games.
The food was ok but the most repetitive of any hotel I've ever stayed at, the salad and puddings were very poor, and I did not experience the friendly staff that was mentioned, it doesn't take much effort to put a smile on your face, and the amount of times I said thanks to be given a dirty look for my efforts.
The room was absolutely tiny, we had three single beds in our room and you could not walk between them, we ended up putting them together so there was a narrow gap round the sides.
The only good thing I can say about this hotel was the evening entertainment was good for the kids, and the animation team did a good job, especially the guy in the purple suit at the horror show who had my husband and I in fits of laughter.
Im afraid this is my honest opinion of this hotel, it was the high season, but even still, you pay a lot of money for the holiday and needed another holiday to get over it, it was far too over crowded and I would not go back.
