The comments that people have made about the resort's location and accessability are an unfair reflection on the hotel if people have not properly checked the information as it is clealy laid out on the website and on...

Not 4 star accommodation. Not even close! Worst hotel ever stayed in. Fully inclusive is poor! Food was poor, tasteless, bland, repetitive, not enough choices & luke warm if you were lucky. Chips mixed in with meat every night. Totally unacceptable. Restaurant staff were slow, miserable & lacking customer service skills. Found George rude! Food made me ill on last...

Let's start this right! I can't abide those people who feel the need to moan and write negative comments based on things that can't be helped or changed " it was windy" "it's on a hill" " not enough English food".

Before we travelled, I had read many reviews, some of which had valid points, but any that relate to the staff should be totally ignored, the staff are brilliant and very friendly. My wife and I visited in October, nearly the end of the season, and we had our 13 year old niece and 15 year old nephew with us....
