We had a fantastic time at this hotel. We travelled as a family with a young child & all in our party felt the same way.
The food was excellent, always hot & fresh. The drinks/bar were great- during the day it's self- serve- my hubby was impressed with the self serve San Miguel- although in the evening the glasses were tiny for the beer, but that could be remedied by having more glasses! The wine drinkers found an excellent red wine in the selection, although this was trial & error on a few of the wines!
The pool area was brilliant. Despite certain guests getting up at the crack of dawn to reserve sun loungers, we never had a problem getting some what- ever time we arrived at the pool. We would generally spend the morning on the beach (only a 5 min walk), or walk into Jandia, with the little one. Then get sun loungers after lunch. I did witness 2 different arguments over sun loungers, which was silly really, when if they looked around, others could easily be found.
It did get busier towards the end of our stay- mainly due to the schools breaking up. At first it was about 10% british staying there, which increased to about 30% by the end of the stay. There were absolutely no louts, which was great as they can really affect the atmosphere. There were lots of families & couples, most all very friendly.
The staff were amazing. The waiting staff really work hard. They really make a fuss of the little ones & are very understanding- which is great when you have a young toddler.
One little negative- (which is in no reflection on the hotel). We booked a hire car through our Thomas Cook Rep (who was great!!). We knew we could get it cheaper from a hire car place in the town, but as we were only wanting it one day & we needed a child seat, it was easier to go with the rep.
Anyway,The hire company they use is Avis & the desk is located in the Iberostar Palace & all three hotels use this desk as the point of contact. Our rep had warned us to get over early as it can take a while. The Avis rep had no record of us, despite us getting a reciept from our rep & told us to wait till the end to see if there is a car left. 1 hour later, she was still seeing people & very slowly. We estimated it would be at least another hour before she got to us- which would've been passed 11.30- not a great time to get a hire car for the day. So we didn't get a car for that day & it caused a lot of hassle. The Avis rep/desk seemed very dis-organised & if it takes a couple of hours to get your paper work sorted out in the morning, I would recommend using an independant car hire place.
You get a free pass to the Spa for the day when you check in- & it is amazing in there. A little haven of tranquility. Definetly use this if you can.
Overall we can't recommend this hotel enough. If you're going soon- enjoy you lucky things!
