The Room - Block A room 232, Nice, big and very clean, split into main bedroom and front room , it has two toilets, shower, bath , fridge, large sofa, single sofa bed, and two singles to make up a double in the bedroom, tv , coffee table. Both rooms have patio doors leading to a private balcony with sun lounger , chair and a table, the room is also air conditioned with a free safe, the keycard which opens the door also switches on the electricity and can open the safe. The beds were made everyday, its was cleaned to a high standard, my only complaint was some excessive noise from the room above and late in the evening in the corridor. The balcony has the sun from around 9.am to about 5.00pm.
The Food/Restaurant - The staff are great and very friendly, the food is good with lots of choice, although similar everyday but i tried everything and ate loads, we even had to miss the odd lunch as we had ate to much. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon cakes. My only tiny complaint is in the main restaurant there was sometimes a long cue and not everyone knows how to cue!
The Pool - Two nice pools and a toddler pool. They were nice and clean, plenty of sun beds but as been stated before , the first sun beds go before 7.am , put your towels down, sit with them and there yours, don't leave them unattended until 8.00am or they will be removed the earlier you get pool side the better the sun bed, there is lifeguard but only one at a time , and they guard all three pools, and sometimes doubles up as a sun bed, parasol mover, so you could say the pools are not guarded all of the time.
The bars - very friendly staff again, lots of choice, cocktails, soft drinks, wine etc, the bars even have there help yourself pumps for lager and wine as well as coke, sprite, fanta , apple juice, tea , coffee etc. . If you like wine order a Sparkling Wine from the bar, we enjoyed many of these.
Rest of the hotel - Reception staff are good, help you with anything, you can get free bottles of water from reception too, Nice large lobby area with 4 shops and a hairdresser, Its a WIFI zone which there is a charge. The hotel itself i thought was beautiful especially when lit up at night.
We didn't watch any of the shows in the evening as they were on to late for us they started at 9.45pm There is a kids club but didn't really have any involvement, kids mini disco started at 9.pm and last about 20 mins. There is a small park with swings and slides and a couple of pool tables, gym, table tennis and tennis courts.
Surrounding area - There is a small beach around 2 minutes from the hotel gate, hot dark-ish sand leading down to rocks, wasn't for us and there is some shops/restaurants a further 5 minutes or so up the hill. Other than that there isn't a lot, we did take the free shuttle bus into Las Americas, large beach with lots of shops and many street sellers, again not for us.
So overall we enjoyed our stay, the few bad points are only minor ones and it is a very clean and friendly big hotel, and i would love to go back.
