Firstly i would like to say the staff at this hotel are excellent on the whole and go out of there way to help.We were half board and found the food very good with ample selections available and always hot :salad selections also very good. We stayed in Villa 13 and like the previous review we found it 'TIRED' but functional and clean.We did see a Superior Townhouse which was much better.The two pools are in my opinion small especially the pool to the back of the hotel and when in use by kids it was full.No use for a decent swim , more of a muck about , cool off.Both are also salt treated but not overly so.Didnt hire a car before going and so paid the price for one when i got there...definetly need one so book before you go.Shuttle bus always available and even when busy would do a second trip.To sum up i would say a nice Hotel , trying hard to please.It is isolated so a car is a must and teenage kids (mine) could get a little bored but a nice stay overall.
