Fantastic service, rooms were very big and newly refurbished. Plasma TV with over 100 channels but only around 10 with english language. Cleanliness was excellent and definately worthy of 5*. Food was monotonous. Always fish and the same meats on the cold table & salads available. International branded drinks were available such as Beefeater Gin and Johnny Walker at no extra cost. Did feel however that the wine provided on the all inclusive programme was very poor. Tipped staff on a few occassions as service was very good in resturant, in bar and by the maids that serviced the rooms. Entertainment team worked hard to please all guests but due to the number of different nationalities, was sometimes hard to please everyone. This hotels tends to attract a lot of families with young children.
For excellent value for money, would really reccommend this hotel but may be more inclined to stay at the Riu Palace next door in future should there not be a big difference in cost.
