After reading lots of previous reviews I was quite worried about going to this resort,but went with an open mind.
Firstly, most of the negative reviews must have been off negative people.
Check In was a breeze.We filled most of our details on route from airport and when we arrived at check in our room keys where ready for us.We were in our rooms within 15 minutes of arrival,how brill is that?
The rooms we were given were a little dated(like some reviewers mention) and as we were not keen on the block we were put in. We requested to be moved and this was done within minutes. The bell boys were sent with us to move our luggage.We ended up in block 39 which is right by the beach,but almost 1 kilometre away from the lobby/buffet.
We didn't find this a problem as the little buses go round quite frequent,so if you feel like hopping on and not getting some great free exercise before and after eating, its not a problem.
The Staff, absolutely fantastic apart from the lady who does dinner reservations(miserable).
This hotel does have some issues,but they have appointed management teams for each area(pool,restaurants,beach,etc) who are all working hard to improve things that have been mentioned on this site.(Bartelo is restaurant manager and he must be working 18hrs a day as we met him at every retaurant we went to regardless of the time....Keep it up Bartelo, the food really did improve over the 15 nights we were there)
Everybody works really hard to make your stay a pleasant one and for such a small salary,so a little tip here and there is much needed and appreciated.
Towels?? well ours were changed every day by the maid and the room was cleaned too.The damp smell can't be helped,its in the A/C so take a few tumble drier freshener cloths and stick them to the A/C grill. Beach towels can get changed every day if you so choose,just take them to the towel hut by the activity pool.
All in all,I think this hotel was well worth the money and by next year should be running and improving in a way to reduce negative reviews..
