I stayed 15th-22nd August with my grand daughters who are 8 & 10..I read numerous reviews prior to going. The hotel is clean and hotel staff work really hard to maintain this. They missed cleaning our room one day, informed front desk didn't complain just asked for change of towels.
We did queue twice, once for breakfast and evening meal, but no more than 5 minutes. Food varied, but as you would expect for large hotel. The pool is small but works, beach right next door , during our stay the waves not suitable for small children. 2 minute walk to bars and restaurant. Entertainment doesn't start till 10pm. There were a few games organised by staff: mainly two females, around pool for children. One day was particularly embarrassing and caused much comment around the pool as clearly 2 of the boys playing the children's games were clearly related to the organiser! Some of staff of front desk are not particularly friendly or welcoming, one girl in particular. Their English is poor, but hey maybe I should improve my Spanish. On the whole, we had a great time, made our own fun and enjoyed the sun, and have good memories.
