We stayed at this resort for 2 weeks and it was brilliant. Food great, weather great staff all courteous and friendly (Except one called Rosemary who had no social skills) Rooms roomy with comfortable bed and luxurious shower room. Just one moan............the availability of sun loungers by the pool which have shade.
Some people come down early and claim their bed by laying one flip flop and a towel on it and then don't come back till 2pm leaving us late risers sweltering in the sun getting burnt. Others make sure they get a bed with a parasol and then fold the parasol down down so they can get the sun!! Come on you selfish people and come on Sandals-DO something about it. We spoke to others who were of the same opinion. For the amount we are paying for this holiday we shouldn't have to stress looking for shade by the pool. 2 suggestions to solve the problem:
1. Get a parasol for EVERY sunbed. There were always beds free but only a few with parasols.
2. Employ someone to police this like a traffic warden
Sandals employ someone to collect the rafts or lie lows which are for floating on in the pool -no not because they have a sense of fairness as some selfish people take them back to their sun beds rather than leaving them at the pool side, but because if they are left in the sun they crack. Sandals-Can you do the same for our skin please and remove the belongings of those selfish people who claim sunbeds all day when they are not there.
Melissa at the pool who brought us drinks deserves a special mention as she was great and very friendly.
