We have twins who are 3½ yrs old so this review is written very much from the “young family” perspective. We stayed in early February, before the start of most half term holidays. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment and stayed all-inclusive. The apartment was good sized and, like the rest of the complex, really well maintained. The very large swimming pool was nice and warm and the complex is located really close to a lovely beach. Most other guests seemed to be long-stay retired German and Dutch people, and this made it feel a bit like our twins were invading their space; it did not feel entirely welcoming to a young family. This was underlined physically by the miniclub being located right on the very edge of the complex, along with the not bad but unshaded playground. Patricija, who ran the miniclub, tried hard but there were not very many other kids to help keep ours entertained. The evening entertainment was moderate to good, but not exceptional, but this was partly because the audiences were small in spite of the complex being mostly full – it seems like most of the retirees like to retire early! The food was edible but not exceptional, but there was always plenty of fruit and salad, and the ice cream was good. The AI house red was not worth drinking but the gin and tonic was as always a good option. Most non-Spanish staff were very helpful but some of the Spanish speaking staff were a bit offhand (even if you speak a bit of Spanish), with the exception of Marcial and the young cyclist in maintenance. All in all, a perfectly acceptable stay, but not one that stands out or makes me think that I would really want to return, at least with small kids – maybe more once I am retired.
