Kids Club - the staff there was absolutely amazing, our kids loved it. If we come back this will be one of the top reasons.
Resourt Layout - Very spacious and family friendly, resort is fenced so kids feel safe. Indoor playground and activities for rainy days. Large outdoor playground, lots of options for kids, nice activity pool. Fitness room is great.
Staff - very friendly and attentive.
Could be better:
Food was OK but a bit bland, would have expected a bit more for a 4* resort. No salmon available for breakfast. No diet coke available during the meals. Long queues for the grill, since they only place the meat there when you arrive, and then you stand around for 5 minutes until it is done. Would be nice if chef could adapt to demand and place stuff on grill autonomously.
Animation - very noisy and intrusive. Guests at the activity pool in the late season consisted of families with small children, however the animation team attempted to force a techno party spring break on us. Please adapt animation program and volume to match the season and guest profile.
Cleanliness of pool area - garbage and glasses/cups (partially from the previous day) were not collected. By the afternoon, kids were running slalom between coffee cups, cocktail glasses, baby diapers and other junk.
This item has already been mentioned several times in the reviews here, and the management response always promised to "improve staff training" - obviously it did not work!!!
How hard can it be to have someone walk around the pool every two hours and collect the garbage/dishes?
Overall I would still recommend this hotel, however I hope my comments help to improve further.
