On arrival at the hotel at 3am we were greeted by the bell boy who took our bags and then brought us cornettos! The hotel is very impressive with lots of marble and high ceilings.
Unlike some of the reviews we have read we had no problem with the air con, it was on all night the only issue is that it goes off when you open the patio doors.We had a superior room with a sea view. The bed was huge, much bigger than king size, the balcony was large and so was the tv. The whirlpool bath was nothing to get excited about as it was small, and you don't really want a bath when it's 40 degrees outside!
Food was amazing, the buffett had a very large selection each night with a huge salad bar, meat and hot food and lots of desserts (however they don't serve pork). We visited the Cuban A La Catre restaurant, this was excellent and you had a four course meals and they served nicer cocktails than the bars.
The drinks at the hotel aren't brilliant, only one type of beer and the juices and cocktails just taste of sugar not very refreshing! The white wine was ok though!
The pool is really large and just the right temperature. As this is an adults only hotel there were rarely more than 10 people in the pool at one time. There aren't many sunloungers by the pool and we found that you have to get down there early to get a good spot. If you go for a trip in the morning you don't have much chance of getting a sunlounger in the afternoon because people put towles on them and then go out for the day.
The beach is really nice and has plenty of sunloungers, It's slightly noiser than the pool as there are children on the beach from the Alba Royal and Alba Resort Hotels which are next door. There are plenty of watersports on offer and drinks available on the beach.
The evening entertainment is brilliant although unfortunately we did not get to see the Lion King or Mama Mia. During the day there are plenty of activities on offer, however as we are young the animation team won't leave you alone if you say you don't want to take part.
Over all the hotel has a lot to offer and brilliant service. We would definitely recommend it.
