My boyfriend and I have just returned from our week long holiday at the Seabank Hotel (14th -21st August). It was really lovely! When we first arrived at gone 11pm there was a buffet in the main dining area for us late arrivals with a good range of foods.
Our room was great too, overlooking the sea. Although it was on the main road, you hardly noticed the traffic at all and we woke up to a beautiful sunrise everyday. The room itself was cleaned everyday and you can tell that it's been newly decorated with the nautical theme which gave it a cool 'seaside' feel. We had bottles of water in the mini fridge everyday and it was always spotlessly cleaned by the maids.
There are so many things to do out and about as well and the hotel offered excursions with different companies and places on the island too. These were FAR cheaper than booking them through our tour operator and our all day cruise round the islands and 3 hours at the Blue Lagoon cost just 12 Euros each! Even cheaper still were the buses that arrived every half hour and cost 2.60 Euros for the whole day and you could hop on and off them all over the island.
The pools were both fantastic and there was never any problem in being able to find sun loungers as there were loads!
The food in the main dining area was lovely and there was something different everyday, including some local dishes. We arranged to have dinner in the L'Orient (Chinese) and it wasn't very nice at all. We were a bit concerned when we booked it in the main dining area and the head waiter said to us "if you're still hungry afterwards, you can come in here and eat as much as you like." It was pretty awful with very little choice. Even the prawn crackers were squiffy!
The Animation Team, (bless them!) were great during the daytime doing loads of activities during the day for children and adults alike but the evening performances were shocking (you know the acts they put on Britains Got Talent and you say laugh your socks off at them they're that bad?.... that was them). You can tell that they are a new team, but I think next season they would be better advertising at the universities in the UK that have musical theatre courses so that they will at least be able to hire people that can sing and dance and not mime BADLY (the Grease performance was pretty shocking.....who doesn't know the words to Summer Nights?!) to songs.
Overall, we did have a lovely time and are very much missing the view and not looking forward to doing the washing up tonight.
