My wife & I spent two lovely weeks at this hotel from 3-17 March. We paid extra in advance for a sea view room and was tempted to upgrade to a superior one in advance too but decided to wait til we arrived & see the basic room before we committed ourselves. We paid about 168 euros extra for the sea view for a 14 nights. When we got to our room (144) we were pleasantly surprised, especially after reading some previous reviews. It was big, clean & had everything we wanted & a beautiful view so we saved ourselves the extra money for the superior room. If you want to go round inspecting every aspect of the room sure you can find faults. If i'd paid a lot more money and was expecting a 4 or 5 star room i wouldn't have been impressed but we'd paid very little (apprx £600 each for 14 nights all inc.) so i thought we'd got a very good deal for less than £50 pppn.
Our first couple of days the weather was a bit dodgy, in fact we landed in a storm and were lucky we actually landed at Arricife because lots of flights had to be diverted to other islands., But after that a the weather improved and we managed to sunbathe most days around the pool area. The help yourself drinks at the bars work perfectly well and as one bottle runs out it is replaced.
Food at the pool bar is more than adequate for a snack, burgers, hot dogs, chips etc and the buffet restaurant was much better than we expected. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner and always managed to find something nice to eat. (still trying to shed the xtra pounds now)!
The evening entertainment that we saw was much better than we had seen at other places and Ali the bar man is very friendly and makes you feel very welcome. He works very hard and keeps the place spotlessly clean. Thanks Ali. We went out into the square quite a few nights and sat outside a bars having a nice drink listening to live music. Had a few meals in the square too. All the restaurants seemed to be very nice, out of all the people we met i never heard one say they had a bad meal. Had a couple of late night kebabs from the 'filling station' too. Delicious!
