Very baby friendly and professional especially the charming waitresses in the dining room who went out of their way to entertain my son and the other babies during the meal, they lavished attention on him, sang him songs and cuddled him, he adored them.They are a real credit to this hotel. Wanda and Maria Grazia - tante grazie!
ROOMS AND BATHROOMS
Very big showers - ample room for 3 with large removable shower head.(no baths in rooms)
Super king size bed ( 2 singles pushed together but was fine) plenty of room for our son who slept very well ( they charge extra for a travel cot)
Rooms and bathroom are spacious and very clean.
Buffet style breakfast and dinner - lots of healthy finger foods for babies like boiled carrot sticks,
green beans, asparagus, cheeses, bananas, broccoli florets, melon etc. ( never any chicken on menu though, but lots of fish, pasta and veal)
Pool area very clean and secluded ( a real sun trap but with plenty of shaded areas) with a good sized paddling/ baby pool and 2 well kept play areas with lots of rides for all ages, you can play table tennis, pool and table football by the pool. There are also 2 very clean toilets by the pool as well as clean outdoor showers.
Beach is very close, literally across the road and is beautiful, turquoise water and white sand with dunes and pine trees.
Dinner time is from 7.30pm which was late for our 8 month old
Pool doesn't open until 9.30am and shuts at 5pm. ( You can stay on loungers around pool until about 6.30 though but they close off the pool from about 5)
Main pool is very cold, ok once you are in. If it is hot weather - maybe more bearable. My son went in the main pool with wetsuit body warmer though and was fine.
No fridge in the rooms and you can't hire one we were told and then on the last day a receptionist just gave us a mini fridge for our room, frustrating that they didn't give it to us earlier, we wasted a lot of milk and had to use the bar and restaurant fridges. But you can get one if you ask, maybe speak to manager because not all of the staff seemed to know about it.
Bedroom walls are paper thin, you can hear a lot from rooms nearby. We had very noisy neighbours one night,very late and had to complain to reception who sorted it out straight away for us.
Becareful with poolside rooms as there is loud live music from July in the evening until midnight by the pool which is noisy (hotel told us that)
Beds very hard but we put a blanket under the bottom sheet as a mattress topper which made it more comfortable. Our baby slept really well in the bed anyway.
There is no kettle in the room, however we saw someone being given a kettle at reception so it is worth asking for one. Milton tablets worked a treat in the bathroom sink though for sterilising
Coffee is out of a vending type machine and dreadful , if you normally only drink filtered coffee, this is much worse than instant coffee. They do have a proper coffee maker but they keep it a bit secret until we discovered that you are entitled to have your first coffee at breakfast from the proper machine if you ask a waitress nicely. Excellent coffee in the restaurant on the beach over the rd ," La Conchiglia "excellent seafood here too, big portions and highchair.
Overall, this is a lovely hotel and we got a good deal through Thomson. Other guests all very nice, if you can excuse some of the smaller drawbacks, it has some redeeming 4 star features and is very clean inside and out. There is a mini market on site where you can buy fresh rolls everyday and they sell cheap inflatable water dinghy type toys for children and some emergency baby food in jars. Food is generally very good for a 3 star, whilst breakfast isn't amazing, they do do great eggs!
