I gave this hotel quite a good review when I stayed there a couple of years ago but my opinion of it went down this time. Maybe this was partly because I had to pay a lot more (I was meeting family there) and maybe it is because I have been to more all inclusive hotels and my expectations are higher but overall my experience was less good.
Last time I had a room with a lake view , which was lovely. This time, although I requested a room on a high floor away from street noise I was first given one on the street. I went straight back to reception and was then given one on the first floor overlooking the bar area by the pool . It was ok but there was no privacy on the balcony. The room was quite small - I ripped both small toenails off (literally)stubbing my toes on bedlegs when I went past. When using the stairs there is a metal bar that everyone trips over (I suppose because I was on a high floor last time I must have always used the lift)
I like the fact that they serve drinks in glasses but really would have liked more choice. Why can't they have some local liqueurs? - they are cheap enough. I was much less happy with the food this time. Breakfast had a very good choice, although 'juices' are rubbish. Be warned though, the hot drinks machines are turned off very promptly at the end. I didn't enjoy many other meals at all. Also some things that were labelled or we were told were vegetarian turned out to clearly be not. One of us was a vegetarian and I eat fish but there wasn't any nice fish while I was there (6 days) However the dining room now having a new terrace overlooking the lake is a great addition - a really nice place to eat.
Also on the plus side, the beach bar was open this time, which was nice but most of the area is in the shade in the afternoon (that would be nice in midsummer though) Like everyone else says, the pool is small but the outside area is very large compared with hotels nearer the port.
This time Brits really were in a minority of almost none. Yes there were a lot of germans but there were lots of other nationalities too. That wasn't a problem but sometimes it is nice to talk to other people (Hi Kay and Tommy).
Overall I think any review will partly depend on what room you are given. See one or two reviews that said there was a tree right across their window - I saw that and said "do you think they put guests in that room?"
There were still some quite nice staff especially in the dining room but overall there was a less friendly feel than last time. It was Sept/Oct as opposed to May so maybe this made a difference.
