I have just returned from TLH staying in a self catering apartment in the Carlton Hotel within the complex. Check-in is efficient but staff sometimes try to be a little 'marriott' rather than friendly and welcoming in what is a family-friendly, seaside holiday resort. We have stayed here many time before, usually on a self catering basis which gives greater flexibility with a young family. The bedroom was large, with a sofa bed in the lounge. A well equipped kitchen and bathroom was also on hand. I had wanted to book the 2 bedroom apartment but all were taken, which is often a good sign of how popular the place is. The pools are excellent, especially the smaller one for young children. My only complaint is that duing holidays, the large pool gets crowded and it would be useful for management to explore dividing the larger pool for serious swimmers.
Albert's bar within the complex offers good value for money. At the time of my visit, children ate for £1 when an adult purchased a meal. The Aztec bar is well worth a visit. Added a couple of years ago, it provides an up market feel to the complex. The only issue with the Aztec bar is that food can be very slow to arrive, but when it does it is nearly worth the wait. The sports bar/arcade in the lower section of the complex is good for children (soft play area, bowling, pool etc) but a greater variety of arcade games would improve this and probably generate more more for the hotel.
