we stayed here for 2 weeks, 23rd june/5th july. A lovely, spotlessly clean hotel. we paid an extra £100 when we booked, to gaurantee a sea and pool view. we were on the 8th floor so the view was fantastic, so well worth the extra. The staff were very friendly at all times.We didn't see many of the shows, but what we did was very good. the food in the main restaurant was very good with lots of choice for everyone, although bacon wasn't served every morning at breakfast. We tried all 3 of the a la carte restaurants, my favourite being the steak house, men have to wear long trousers in the george though. They have 2 very good pools, a family one, and adult only one, with a swim up bar. we ourselves didnt use them as we prefer the sea. the water is crystal clear but lovely and warm. my only gripe was you had to pay approx. £6 if you wanted an umbrella.we got a taxi into the old town, which was only about £5, great value. I would definitely recommend going also on a saturday night, where plenty of street stalls, side shows even fireworks are there.every thing you want from a holiday is here. but dont listen to youre thompson rep when he tells you, you can take a stroll to the next town along the beach and be there in about 45 mins, more like 2 hours. you have 90 minutes of wi-fi per day,which is in the lobby, (although i did get it twice in my room) which starts when you log into it. the signal wasn't always that great though.Would i recommend this hotel, a big fat "YES".....
