If anyone cares to see my other reviews they will see that I am always fair.
Before we left we knew there were rules and regulations at the hotel re electricals, no tea and coffee facilities, and about 100 euros for the fridge and safe. We left home determined to have open minds, even though it took a month to get permission to take a piece of plug in medical equipment, with Thomsons saying there was no electricals ban, and there were tea making facilities,. They rang with profuse apologies and said I was, indeed right, and they were investigating. I knew I was right as friends a few weeks before had left a kettle on show and got a shirty letter of reprimand from The Management.
Although we were the nearest room to next doors aircon machinery we found that ok.
It is a nice looking hotel, but some of the rooms are really down low and the corridors down there are depressing. Other hotels have their rifiles and archery etc outside but this one has them indoors and very low down.. people just either dont know they are there are can't find them. The animation team work their socks off but if people can't find the activities then they just wont be used much.
The bathroom... if you are under 6ft tall or not agile then you will have a problem. There is a glass screen, and to reach the plug hole or taps you either have to reach right round or get in the bath first. My partner did this, turned on the shower and the force of the water hitting his groin knocked him off his feet,. I rushed in but could hardly reach the taps to turn the water off. I was just going to call for help when he said he was ok. I could see blood and was scared stiff. He had a black eye, and a bruise elbow and shoulder... and was shaken up. We immediately demanded a non slip mat. Please ask for one before using the shower. No accident form was offered by either the Rep or the Hotel.
We enjoyed the food. It is very busy and two sittings or an extra restaurant room (if possible) would be a good idea. Be aware that it isn't the place for a romantic holiday dinner.
I do have the odd cigarette but why they put the smoking area in the main bit leading to the pools, where everyone has to walk through, is beyond me. Embarrassing for smokers and not nice for non smokers. It would be nicer for everyone if it was a bit to the side and not the main walkway where there are chairs and settees for people to relax in..
We had a good time but having been to other premium hotels (Riu not Princess)felt that this one wasn't quite the same.
Sounds a terrible thing to say because the hotel has a lot going for it but because of the location of some of the rooms, the bathrooms, rules re electricals, etc we both felt it was a bit "Fur coat... no knickers" which is a shame.
