To start off, we were a stag party, but as I was the youngest at 40, we were not the stereotypical boys on the lash.
I was the first of the party to arrive, as the rest of the group narrowly missed their flight. There was some confusion about booking in, a couple of emails sent & eventually I got in. The rooms are pretty basic, maybe in need of a refurb, the shower was clean & powerful, it's just that the shower curtain couldn't handle it & it did cause some water to get everywhere. The beds were not too bad, I slept with no problems.
We went all inclusive, & there are two restaurants, one of which British customers are encouraged to use. The food is ok in that one (Magic Cafe) & the breakfast buffet is pretty good, but I would advise anyone who likes Spanish food (like me), to go into the other restaurant, as the food is much better & you have more choice.
There are two bars, I quite liked the Spanish one, but you have to ask for olives & other tapas to go with your beer, as they don't quite believe that we Brits actually enjoy them! The English bar was ok, & is the start for most stag/hen weekends. They have entertainment there, to be honest the singer wasn't to my taste at all (Stars On 45!!!) but the entertainment officer is a good lad, who offered me a bottle of sparkling wine as I was still waiting for the rest of my party to turn up, & it being my 40th!
We only had one problem, & that was when the party were booking out, some didn't get there €40 card deposit back, as the reception staff were adamant that they had already paid it, they hadn't.
