On arrival and on my first view of this hotel I saw a large complex which looked a little tired and in need on a refurbishment, reception was cooled (air-conditioning) however the staff were very helpful, I asked for a room with a pool view & this was no problem for them to change, no air-con in lifts or halls to the rooms!! the room was large & clean but very tired & the fittings were only 2 star, however everything was there that we needed, the air conditioning was barely sufficient but working, beds were poor & I rarely sleep well due to this & the heat, sat TV ok just a couple of channels though, kitchen ok, some ants there but not really a problem. we were booked B&B & the breakfast was standard fair: beans bacon, egg, sausages, tomatoes, toast, cereal, bread cold meats, this was ok but after two weeks of the same food every day it became very lacklustre, & I could have killed for some mushrooms fried bread & hash browns. Nightly entertainment was very very poor, we tried it several times but just walked straight in & back out again (go to Cheers if you have young kids for a good evening meal out). Kids Club was well run and kids enjoyed it. The pool area was clean & pleasant however there wasn’t enough seating for everyone, we got round this most days by going to the fabulous beach in the morning & returning to the pool after siesta at around 3pm when all the hardcore sun bathers finally conceded to the sun & left. The local bus service is excellent and cheap. Restaurants are pricey & you have to be careful because the boards out front give cheap food prices & then they charge you 5 Euros a pint (£5) when others bars etc charge 2 Euros!!! the Chinese was the best value, we eat out every day & there was lots to chose from, walk one block inland to small strip of restaurants with a play area in front of them for best food & value, a little brit pub/restaurant which unfortunately we only found on the last day! (this is behind cheers which is opposite the hotel) Shops full of usual tourist tat but we found it easy to buy everything we needed during our stay. Buy all your ice creams & cold drinks from the hotel supermarket when at the pool and don’t use the pool cafe' for these to save loads of money, the beach which is only 2mins from the hotel is the reason we chose this location and it was perfect, only complaint is the docks on the horizon ruined the view slightly, water clean & clear, there is a jetty which runs pleasure trips. The resort in general is a family resort & not too seedy. I would not return to this hotel or resort but I have to concede we had a great time!! (there is five in my family, my wife myself & three children, 10, 8 & 6)
