Being positive to start with, the room was, although basic, spotlessly clean, fresh and tidy and was cleaned on a daily basis.
The majority of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Not all however. We arrived at 2.15, 15 minutes after lunch had finished and we were not even offered a crust of bread or a cup of coffee or tea. We were told that we would get lunch on the day we left. When I pointed out that we were leaving at 10.00 in the morning so that would not be possible, all we got was a shrug of the shoulders.
It would be fair to say that we would not have starved but the 'hot' food was luke warm at best and practically the same day after day for lunch and dinner. I wouldn't have needed teeth to chew on most days. Much of a muchness. Not sure about having to clean up after yourself at mealtimes scraping waste into one plastic tub and putting dirty cutlery in another, it didn't hurt but just didn't seem right. I didn't choose to go self catering.
All inclusive obviously means different things to different people. Only one type of beer, one red wine, one white wine and soft drinks available. Not even local spirits or a choice of wine or beer. Ice cream not included. Apart from meal times tea and coffee only available over a two hour period in the afternoon.
Pool was lovely but you have to 'chase the sun' as most of the area was in the shade as the sun moved around.
I titled this review 'confused' because I really enjoyed my holiday but have to say I was glad that I only went for one week not two based purely on the food, lack of choice and what wasn't included in the 'all inclusive'. Would I go back to this hotel? Only if it was a freebie.
