This was my 3rd visit to the hotel and we travelled as a party of 14. 8adults and 6kids ages ranging from 3-8.

The hotel is barely 3* let alone 4* which has only been given because of the attached water park. Things you expect from both 4* and all inclusive would be: • Bottled water –... More

This is a fantastic hotel for kids, last year the food was superb, this year the food was not up to the same standard. Very dissapointed by the behavior of some of the guests, who were drunk and rowdy and nothing was done about it, don't know if I would go back again, which is a shame.
