We arrived at hotel and thought very nice all been recently refurbished. Lovely and clean but not a five star all inclusive . Safe and mini bar in room good tea/coffee was kept to a minimum amount and only soft drink in fridge.l
Draught beer in water bottles in bar fridge as no pump. We went for 9 days and to be honest it felt longer poolside nice and general cleanliness good. Beach nice.
Bar snacks and food all boring.
I eat mainly salad as veggy but my husband said all hot food was cold or lukewarm.Not much variety same old stuff every day and we are sure they recycled some of the things like fried eggs and boiled eggs from morning put back out in evening.
General area around hotel is very nice usual pain in the bums who pester you to go to their eateries but all good natured we visited Nemos a couple of times one day so we could have something hot to eat.
Cocktails boring and served in plastic for all inclusive.If you paid you got a glass with a straw and a slice of fruit. We hired a car in the end and that was quite good value even though My husband managed to lose us in the mountains. TOP TIP take a map and remember where the sun sets in relation to your hotel a bit basic I know but it got us back to hotel.
Anyway not sure if this was just end of season run down but I won't go back there.
Strange thing about room Jacuzzi bath/shower had roller blind you could lift so there was like a viewing window to bedroom area was this to watch TV as could not see the sea from it Peculiar!
We know it was end of season but spa facilities were all but finished not that we asked too much but costs were quite high. Pool bar was closed after 17th October due to high winds and we were told they had laid of staff as guest numbers went down.
