Flights to and from Manchester were appalling with absolutely no leg room and no entertainment. Upon arrival at this quaint little airport we had quite a delay due to a computer problem but were soon at the hotel and very quickly checked in by firendly, efficient reception staff. We stayed in room 147 which was perfect: ground floor, quiet, very...

This is a large hotel but the advantage of this was it never felt packed or crowded. The room was nice, comfortable, large and clean(1221) and within a couple of minutes walk to the main restaurant,pool and beach. The pool area can get a bit noisy and loud but the beach is peaceful, there was never a problem in getting...

Stayed here for a week in June with the family. Hotel is great and the food was fantastic. There are two large pools and the beach goes on forever. There is also a gym and fitness centre. We will be going back again!

Beautiful hotel, lovely beach and immaculately clean. I was not keen on the cats wandering into the restaurants but they didn't seem to cause any problems. There was plenty of choice in the buffet restaurants and the food was good. The staff are very hard working and friendly and I could not fault the entertainment team. The hotel is only...

We'd never been here before and booked to get some winter sun. Highly rated, we expected a high standard. Well, I have to say that although the hotel is splendid, for those thinking of a quiet holiday, it's huge! That doesn't take away anything from it; we loved our time there and found the staff amazing and so very dedicated....

Amazing hotel!! It's like a mini city with everything you need inside its huge vicinity. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful at all times, and there are a lot of them!! The hotel has everything from quiet bars, to busier bars to karaoke bars to night club! The entertainment team put on a great show almost every night...

This is my family's second visit to this hotel. There are some changes as expected after 5 years, but it is still a good destination for some winter sun. The bedrooms have been refurbished with memory foam mattresses and new flat screen TVs and are comfortable and are cleaned everyday. At our last visit, we were in rooms furthest away...

This was my first time in an all-inclusive resort, and it was in most ways as I expected. The only thing that was below expectation was the red wine, which was very close to colored water. On the other hand, the resort itself was better than I expected. The room was clean and large enough, the balcony was large and...
