Hotel is amazing, we couldnt find one fault at all!!! On arrival the hotel looks wonderful and we were welcomed with a lovely refreshing drink. Check-in was speedy which was great as we arrived at the hotel at approx 4pm (following a 1 hour transfer). On arrival the staff were very welcoming and gave a brief explanation about the hotel and where the restaurants were (this was very good, and very quick).
We were then shown to our room- which was also fantastic, the room was on level-0 near the reception. The room was just looking onto the alba resort (one of the other alba hotels) but this was ok as it was quiet. In the room there was a minibar which was restocked daily with water and soft drinks. The room was also spotlessly clean and tidy and a hairdryer is there to use to. There was also pool/beach towels there for our use too and these could be changed everyday in the spa centre near the pool.
The pool area is lovely too, its very clean and as soon as you see it, its obvious this is an adult only hotel. There is one huge pool which is kind of devided by a walkover bridge. at one side of the bridge is where the pool games take place (there isnt many tho) and at the other side of the bridge is classed as the relaxation side of the pool. There is music playing around the pool area but not very loud (apparantly some people complained about it so therefore its very quiet now) The animation team are around the pool all day- they are wonderfull, they work extremely long hours and six days a week and still have the energy to entertain and smile all day long.
There is a pool bar, a beach bar, two bars inside the hotel on level -2 and -1 which are great. The cocktails are amazing and a big thankyou to Mustifa, who makes the best cocktails ever. You can have wine, beer, spirits, champagne, hot drinks, soft drinks and as much raki as you like.
The restaurants are absolutely amazing too. There is definitely something for everyone. At breakfast there is a wide selection of cereals, and bread. Freshly cooked omelettes are also available with scrambled egg of fried egg. There is a wide selection of fresh fruit and it tastes lovely. There is also lunch available in the restaurant (we never used it because the food at the pool and beach bar were too nice). Evening meal is served in the restaurant and there is everything from frogs legs, octopus, steak, chips, chicken (freshly cooked infront of you). Also there was a sushi stand in the restaurant where a chef prepares the sushi infront of you!
There is 3 al a carte restaurants.... Turkish, Cuban and Fish...... ALL AMAZING and definitely 5 STAR!!!
We also used the hotel spa for a turkish bath and massage, absolutly amazing!!!
overall this holiday was the best ever. Im the kind of person who usually is unwell on holiday and i usually watch what I eat and always take the "safe" option but this hotel is very clean and there is a alcohol hand wash outside the restaurant. I ate everything possible and was not unwell at all. We were there 2weeks and i can safely say I wasnt ready to come home!!! truly amazing!!!!
