“Most Relaxing Holiday Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This was the most relaxing and best value for money holiday we have done.

Reading some of the other reviews on here, I don't recognise the hotel they are describing; the food was superb - plenty of choice at all times and the staff couldn't be more helpful.

As someone else says, if someone's son couldn't find anything to eat here, I would like to see what he normally eats because there was plenty of choice for every meal we had every day.

I haven't rated the spa as we never actually found enough time to use it

We have been to this hotel twice and would definately go back again.

The food is of high standard and even though all inclusive they do try and do different foods. I enjoy breakfast here as they do lay table outside as well as in. Also being 5 star you do get shown to a table and your drinks are brought to you.

Unfotunately there is not much room to sit out in the evening once the bar has closed by the pool if you do want a pre or post dinner drink.

The pools and public areas are all very clean and well maintained and the pools are all on different levels so not crowded. We also went canoeing in the lake which was a funny experience as we capsized.

Being close to the airport we just get a taxi which is around €8. The planes are coming over head all the time but you soon get use to it and we love watching them any how.

The local village is good to walk to with some very good restaurants and bars and a good size supermarket.

The evening entertainment can be a bit hit and miss but the kids disco is always very good.

The first time we stayed we had a ground floor room which was lovely as you could watch the world go by but the second time we had a first floor room with a concrete balcony which you could not see over wehen sat down so this was a bit disappointing if sat having a drink. we did ask to be moved but apparently they were full.

Room Tip: If you dont want to feel enclosed ask for ground floor or a wooden balcony - you wont always get req...

Wonderful stay. My wife, daughter and I really enjoyed our 10 day break. Weather was great, hotel rooms are spotlessly clean and beds very comfortable. Couldn't get aircon to work when I got there as I had a blond moment. One phonecall to reception and maintenance man appeared in 2 minutes and explained it all. Bathrooms contemporary and beautiful. Fantastic shower, whirlpool bath and plenty of hot water all day long. Free room safe and nice chill out balcony.
The entertainment during the day was great. Always something to do including paddle (a cross between tennis and squash) kayaking waterpolo etc. Night entertainment was great for kids, the acrobats were great. The entertainment on offer needs a little work but there were some highlights.
The good news is that the AI for the bar stops at 11:00pm. You may think this is a problem, if you do, do not go to this hotel as you would be more suited to one of the 2 star hotels in Los Christianos.
All the staff are amazing, they take time to look after you and get to know you and help in any way they can. If you need anything, just call reception.
Shuttle bus to Los Christianos is free-just book with reception.
Taxi to airport is circa €25 so do not book tour operator coach or taxi as it will cost you more. Sky sports is available at the reception bar and if you ask they will put on cricket/football/Eastenders etc. although there are some terestrial UK channels in the room.
The food in the main restaurant is superb, lots of choice every day. They have a salad bar to die for and the choices of fresh fish are amazing. The choice of sweets is good too. They also do a themed section every day, chinese, Dominican Spanish Thai etc..
Feeling adventurous? Try the Segway Tour. I cannot believe none of us fell off. A stern teacher he may be but really nice guy.
The Siam Park water park was a must. I was laughing and screaming like a small child. You can lock your gear in a locker for €8 (€5 of which is a returnable deposit) and remember not to wear a watch or pair of glasses(sun glasses) when you get to the front of the queue or they will make you leave them and then you have to climb the hill again to retrieve them. Flipflops/sandals/crocs etc are a must as after about 11:30am the floor will burn your feet.
Negatives-
If we were being really picky, the teabags are Lipton's and very weak. We had bought some PG with us (I sound like a traveller from the 70's, or in my 70's but I am not). If you are going to miss your tea, bring some bags with you.
The A-la-Carte is OK, but I believe is still a work in progress. The food here is good but if I had had to pay for it over and above AI I would have been disappointed. I would rather they charge a cover and really up the food ante.

Room Tip: Go to the reception bar for pre dinner drinks. Sit out on their balcony for some serious waiter serv...

A great holiday and resort. We stayed in mid July in a suite overlooking the lake which was really spacious and comfortable. All inclusive package was really convenient with a good range of quality drinks available and easily accessible at all times. Buffet style meals were of a very good quality and provided enough variety. Al La Carte restaurant was not that much of a step up from the main restaurant however. Ideally pool areas would be a little bigger and more spacious with no 'beach' nearby but that is a pretty minor point.

In many ways the excellent kids club and nightly kids disco was a highlight (adult entertainment is average) and as some others have said Mellissa was absolutely excellent - our 5 year old boy happily joined in the activites most days and Mellissa was the main reason for that.

We are already booked up to return next year for what will hopefully be another relaxing and stress free break - just hoping (our 5 year old especially) that Mellissa will still be there...!

I"ve stayed in this hotel last September with my friend. We had an amazing week holiday!
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We made good use of free activities - kayaking, rock climbing, rifle shooting. Will recommend to take the nature tour for 7.50 Euros. It was well run and we really enjoyed this experience.
Room really lovely with own bath-jacuzzi type and was cleaned every day. The food- deserve Michelin star! I definitely would recommend it!

We stayed here in the last week of August - a week of very mixed weather! 3 cloudy days and 4 hot, sunny days. Luckily there was enough in the resort to keep us busy on the cloudy days. The nature reserve is absolutely amazing - we went for a walk there by ourselves, not as part of a guided tour. You have to get your room card validated to go through the gate opposite the hotel entrance. At first it just looks like you are walking in a strange waste ground, but keep going and explore the gorges and ravines - you will not be disappointed! Lots of wildlife to be seen - mainly lizards, swallows and birds of prey. They also have a running track up there with lots of outdoor exercise stations - much better fun than sweating away in the hotel gym!

The rooms are spacious and really modern - among the best resort hotel rooms we have stayed in. The food in the all-inc buffet was fine - we are confirmed foodies and found the food to be fresh and tasty on the whole. The food at the 'La Proa' restaurant was pretty decent - the pork and chocolate mousse were both pretty good. House wine and cava at both were excellent. Try the honey rum on the all inclusive! :-)

Only a few minor areas we thought the hotel could improve in:
- More patrols around the pools to stop people hogging sunbeds all day - it clearly states that this is not allowed, yet no-one was policing this. 'Boo' to selfish people who put their towels out all day but only sunbathe for an hour! ;-(
- If you want items from the minibar, you have to phone reception to get them to deliver it to you. Inconvenient, but stopped us spending too much money!
- Waiter service by the adult pools would add to relaxation levels.
