I stayed here last week and loved every minute. The food was fine for me but then again, I'm not picky. The pizza is fabulous! I've read a lot of reviews on here but my personal experience was great. I stayed in the rear of the 3200 building and I've read a lot of complaints about the noise but I...

A lot of negative reviews on this hotel really made us worry about our choice of hotels. I will give a brutally honest review so it may help others with their decision. Check in was quick but we we early and our rooms were not ready until 3:00 pm on the dot. Some staff spoke lots of English, some a...

I have been to quite a few all inclusive resorts in different locations over the years, and sadly IFA Villas falls far below expectations. #1. First off, I have never been at a resort before where the individuals providing key services ( checkin, checkout, dinner reservations, excursion packages etc ) behave as if they do not speak or understand any...

We went there as a couple and had a villa room at the back of the hotel by the jacusi bar. The room was good, comfortable beds and the maid service was good if a little late in the day. We never went to either pool as there were no sunshades and it was difficult to get natural shade. The...

The rooms were much benter than we expected and there was so many restaurants ton chose from in the resort. The workers treat you like family and speak all kinds of languages. They seem...

I was looking for a last minute bargain. I got a great deal, and was well read up on the property and knew what I may encounter. Despite the reviews I read, the front desk staff was great and I have never checked in a hotel so fast. Unfortuantely, the weather was terrible when I was there, which made for...

We had a fabulous holiday. Huge pools / beautiful scenery and gardens, entertainment every day. Bar in the actual pool itself, where you can get your own cocktails whilst sat at the bar in the pool. Rooms cleaned on a daily basis. Great selection of food, extremely warm weather. Stunning beach / Sea

We attended as a big group in January. We arrived early. So some patience was required on our part as we arrived early. But the Front Desk Staff & Guest Services Staff are useless. Excuse they overbooked. If you are going to this hotel be aware that they will put in in the oldest buildings (French balconies) (old, moldy, infested,...
