I was dreading going here after reading the reviews. Correct it isn't 4* but had a good stay. Only downside to my room was curtains didn't fit and balcony doors didn't lock. Instead of garden room had sea views which were lovely and my son and I ended up in apartment to sleep 5, so lucked out here. Food was fine and was kept going for the level of people who dined here. This is sometimes difficult for staff as some of the guests pile up their plates like it's there last meal and ends up being wasted. Staff at pool bar really pleasant along with Animation team. If you don't like climbing stairs not the place for you, keeps you fit. My main complaint is some of the people who were there on holiday, never met so many rude people in one place. They would cut in front of you in restaurant and at the bar, no please or thank you to staff and it wasn't just the adults who behaved like this. Manners cost nothing, start taking them on holiday with you! Thanks to the small group of people I met who made my stay a pleasant one and the kids who set up football game at night which my son enjoyed was lovely meeting you all.

Service is obliging and certain. Animation program in the evening take care of much fun and chill near the coloured-lighted pool with the cocktail in hands. This area of three resorts open new preferences to spend time with. You can do whatever you want and there is actually very low possibility to get bored. As far as main food in hotel is concerned, you will ALWAYS choose something nice to your current taste. When you borrow a car, you can drive to town 20min driving, where you buy souvenirs etc. Beach is that close that you just ride down by cable and you are here. Basicly this is place where your family and children will be so happy and excited.

Firstly any good reviews you see are people either working at the shack or very easily pleased. This is NOT a 4 star it is advertised as a 3 star, trust me it's a 1 star, the location is nice, the rest goes downhill from the entrance, the entrance is bird pooh everywhere, bins with rubbish hanging out, you enter into the hotel via filthy glass doors, the dining hall is right slap bang in the reception area with birds flying around crapping everywhere and that includes the tables you eat at, reception felt like Fawlty Towers, attitude on most of them would have had me firing them, our room was spacious, bed was clean, mattress very good clean condition, the sink tap came off in my hand after chucking out brown water, the bath has no plug, you are not allowed a plug as they say it is due to Health and safety!! The drain in the bathroom floor stink and had hairs coming out of it, the hallways oh my God they have damp, mould, cracks everywhere, balcony railing loose, the food was pasta, chips, slop, day in day out, this is mixed with bird crap. The pool, I've seen bigger padding pools, the swim up rooms are vile, they stink, if you love the smell of sewage all the time especially mixed with the heat of the day,then you will love it here, The staff do not care, I have read some posts stating a fabulous time, trust me they must of been drunk, I think if you have kids then do cancel, the stairs are ridiculous, the communal toilets stink, the hotel needs shutting down. Oh and the spare sunbeds are at the owners house at the back entrance stacked in his garden.

Where do I start? Firstly This hotel is definitely not a 4* and the agents advertising it definitely need to reevaluate how they are selling this holiday. It is definitely a mis sold holiday, although I have enjoyed myself that's due to the company I'm with and from meeting other nice families here. I would not come back here, it needs a complete overhaul, it's not family or child friendly, its outdated, not accessible if you are disabled or have a buggy. There are hundreds of stairs just to get to the restaurant or pool from our hotel room. I sprained my rest from having to carry my daughter and the buggy up all these stairs. (Its appaling). The lift that was available to take you up and down from the hotel to the Beach broke down every day and it was out of use for about 2 days whilst we were there. The rooms are basic but liveable for a week, I would highly recommend these being updated aswell. The only thing that was beautiful from my room was waking up to the beautiful view of the beach. The food is basic and was literally the same for the whole week, Chips, Pasta, Hot dogs, Eggs. We were disappointed with food and something had to be done because we were eating the same all the time and the food was cold. My friend made an appointment to speak with the manager since we were not happy at all, he allowed us to change our wristbands from Green to Yellow, which meant we could use the other food court in the adjacent hotel (This was much better, better food, hot food, a range of food, friendlier staff and a cleaner environment). One thing I would say is that the dining hall areas are to small for the amount of people visiting this hotel. Swimming Pool areas are Ok! I mean the children enjoyed themselves, I think that the pool area however needs a revamp, needs to be cleaned up, in other hotels staff would go around making sure there was no rubbish on the floor and that the pool areas where not overflowing with water when coming out of the pool, the tiles became very wet and this proved dangerous for all the children, the gate from the childrens pool also kept coming offπŸ€”. Sunbeds can be an issue, it seemed as though people were up at the crack of dawn to reserve their beds with towels. We had this problem for the first part of the week but by the middle of the week there were a number of beds available even after 10.00am. I do think, however in the higher peak seasons (July-Sept) this is going to be an issue. There are not even sunbeds for the amount of people staying. There aren't even any spare lying around. If the hotel had spare this would not be so much of an issue because there is space where you can put extra sunbeds. Overall a big disappointment, I would not visit or recommend this hotel to anyone. Even our transfer driver had heard bad things about the hotel.
