We booked the hotel very last minute hoping for a cheap, relaxing week of late October sunshine and we were not disappointed. The hotel had all the amenities you could need, decent food and plenty of space.
The staff were efficient rather than attentive but that would be a minor gripe. The food selection was huge although we often found that if you arrived at the 'wrong' time, a large part of the buffet selection would be lukewarm.
Having covered off the small drawbacks we found, I should really emphasise how brilliantly the hotel lends itself to a great holiday. The plot of land it sits on is enormous so you never feel as though you're crowded and the huge number of sun loungers meant there was never a scrum to get prime position. The all inclusive offered cocktails, fruit juices, pastries and ice creams from a variety of pool bars and restaurants throughout the day and your 'branded' drinks at dinner.
A few things to bear in mind:
- Always ask specifically for pepsi/fanta/sprite etc when ordering soft drinks as the default option seemed to be something flat and syruppie which was no good
- Beach towels need to be hired up front for 10 euros each and can be refreshed every 2 days at reception by presenting your receipt. You get the 10 euros back at the end of your stay
- Wifi is about 2 euros for half an hour and works at various points throughout the hotel and by the pools
- Loungers at the beach need to be hired for 2.5 euros a day
One last thing to mention. The all inclusive deal got us one a la carte meal during our stay and it was fantastic. The staff did everything to make that meal as special as they could and it was a great way to round off the holiday.
