Lovely hotel lush gardens and gorgeous pool area, rooms great with more drawers and storage than you could ask for, full cooking facilities including oven toaster etc, staff very friendly and polite. now the not so good bits, we went all inclusive, breakfast not good scrambled egg everyday dont do fried eggs, usually colld as is cooked upstairs then brought down, not much on offer, lunch is usually boring, dinner not much better but the sweet menu is second to none with choice of cake etc brill, snack bar at pool is brill with a great choice the pizza is amazing, hotel not near any beaches a long walk however the wee train runs every 20 mins and for 31/2 euros you can ride all day, think runs from 9am till 1.am .bar service at night can be frustrating as paying customers seem to come first so you have to shout up, 20 min walk to old town which is nice and very busy, balcony is cold at night due to constant wind but a blessing during day so lady's take a cardigan if out at night.

Room Tip: overlooking gardens or pool is prob best as front is open to the wind.

Just back from a family holiday and really enjoyed my stay. The food was great (which I wasnt expecting after reading some reviews on here) with plenty to choose from. The location was central to both the strip and the old town. We had a one bedroom apartment which was very spacious but the downside is that it could do with an update as the decor is a bit dated! Some staff were so good with the kids but others need to polish up on their people skills! The entertainment was ok. Could do with a bit more variety and maybe they could bring a few acts in from
Outside instead of the same entertainers doing it every night?
All in all it was a good holiday and we will be returning.

Stayed for 10 days in June all inclusive, paid in excess of £3000 for three adults and toddler. Contrary to other reviews, the Hotel is very clean and although it is in desparate need for a lick of paint and new furnishings, this would be an excellent hotel in an excellent location. There was a good choice of food and selection. The staff at the hotel worked extremely hard and worked long hours. I am well travelled and have stayed in worse and I am a very clean and tidy person. Reviews I read prior to our stay were very off-putting and I was dreading what I was going to.

Seriously what more does one want but cleanliness and a good variety and selection of food because this is what you will get. I would definitely come back again.

Room Tip: Stayed in a 2 bedroomed apartment, which had 2 separate bathrooms and was huge. We were on the 5th f...

Breakfast terrible and freezing. Bar snacks available from 10 till 6 and thankfully were excellent. Service at bar wasn't too bad AFTER we complained that people who were not all-inclusive were getting priority. Hotel clean and tidy and entertainment crew worked from all day. Location was good - 10 minute walk to strip and same to Old Town which was lovely. Rooms spacious and have full cooking facilities.

Room Tip: Rooms with pool view do not have road noise

We stayed here all inclusive during July, the hotel is clean and very large, has great facilities. The 1 bedroom apartment was very large and spacious and clean, the furniture is old, dark wood and dated and could benefit from a refurbishment although you don't spend long in the room so it's not the end of the world, the breakfast and lunch were excellent as was the snack bar, the evening meal however was disappointing with very little choice and repetitive, no themed nights and food was only Luke warm, pool area is good and loads of well maintained green grass which you can place sunbeds on, never had an issue getting sunbeds and mats are free when all inclusive, what made this hotel more special was the entertainment day and night by the fantastic Thomas Cook team they were so friendly and always made you welcome, the team at the kids club were also superb and made your child feel special.

Recently returned with my wife and 1 year old child from here, we had self catering and as such, did not eat any of the food offered at this hotel. The 1 bedroom apartment we had was excellent, the living room and kitchen formed one large room. The bedroom and bathroom were two separate rooms which was good. The kitchennette was very good, the cutlery was all supplied and was clean. The fridge has a freezer section too which was useful. There is a supermarket 5 min walk from the hotel so we stocked up on drinks, ice creams, milk, etc from there, this worked out quite well price wise. The main room and bedroom both have air con which is quiet and works well so was pleased with this.
Regarding the pool area, the water was fairly cold but not freezing. We found it to be fine as the sun was always out, so we enjoyed the pool. My daughter enjoyed the kids pool, although children cannot really swim in the pool as it is very shallow. The sun loungers were plentiful and we always seemed to find a spot in the afternoon so no problems there.
The beach and old town is a short 15 min walk away (bus goes the long way so takes 30 mins), and the strip is maybe 10 mins away on the bus. The bus is a hop on, hop off bus, with 3.50 euro for an all day ticket, bus stand is 5 mins walk away from the hotel.
Overall, an excellent location, and perfect for self catering in gorgeous weather. Would recommend.
