We loved the location of this hotel as it was only a 10-15 minute walk to La Isla shopping centre and you could get a bus just a minute from the hotel to go up and down the strip. It was great to get out and about independently and also walked both directions on the beach - heavenly what more could you want.
After the first night we upgraded to a beach view balcony and it was money well spent, we never got bored of looking out at the stunning beach. There were 2 buffet restaurants with a good selection of foods on offer. My only point is everything is garnished with grated cheese and as I can't eat dairy I found this very annoying as it wasn't necessary, if you can eat anything you would have no problems. Having said that I did ask for meat with no sauce on Italian night as everything was creamy and they were very good at accommodating me.
There was also an a la carte restaurant but we didn't book to try as the buffet suited us better.
Bar areas were good we usually went to the adults only pool bar during the day and you could always get served within a couple of minutes. If you wanted a hot drink during the day you had to go into one of the restaurants I think this would have been much easier if they just set up a self service area so you weren't taking up a dining table just for a tea.
Night time sleep was very broken but then this hotel is close to the party zone so to be expected, take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Beds were huge and fabulous couldn't fault the rooms at all definetly can't wait for my next holiday!
