Myself, my husband and our 2 children stayed in this resort for a week. Initial impressions were so so. Reception staff not at all very welcoming. I was very surprised at this as I had read many previous reviews about reception staff and thought things would have improved. They don't provide that friendliness they should when staying in a 5 star hotel. We had an apartment in the club house, we had a buggy so had to walk past reception many times going to the bar, pool etc, reception never made an attempt to say hello or even smile. They actually sat down and hid themselves behind their desk. The apartment was finished beautifully, all mod cons included. We had a massive balcony which was great for the 2 children to run around on. The pool and grounds were beautiful, very well maintained. We could see that they cleaned the pool every night. There was a beautiful playground. Breakfast was ok, we had breakfast included so had it every morning. It was a little repetitive, a little variation would be good. We had dinner in the restaurant 2 of the nights, again it was just ok. We found the food a little salty. Over all we probably would return to this resort. It is a beautiful area. There is plenty for children to do. We really enjoyed the pool foam party. Hopefully reception staff will improve as its such a pity that they are the first people u meet and as they say first impressions last.
