Spent a week in the October holidays. Good holiday but different from other first choice all inclusives. Most differences are down to size, which is quite small at 50 rooms so it depends what you are looking for. Positives were that you got to know the staff who were all very helpful and friendly. Food is quite "british" eg a roast and hot pudding every day but extremely tasty and fresh. Not crowded round the pool and no problem getting tables in the restaurant.
Snack meals can be ordered at any time but are not sitting to help yourself. No beach towels provided so take your own!
KIDS - pool is good for playing and there is a separate toddler pool. Kids club very friendly but quite small compared to other complexes so all ages were mixed together and activities were mostly art/craft in one room. Although we went during Scottish October break there were very few school age children, more pre-school. Hotel seemed very good for young kids. I saw staff wiping high chairs after every use which you don't always see!
Possible drawbacks - might not be many kids of similar age to yours and there is not much space to play outside at night. The entertainment was provided by one guy. He worked really hard and did an excellent job, but large resorts have dedicated teams of 10+ so it depends what you want. We liked it.
TRIPS - the local beach is 2 minutes away and makes a nice change from the pool. For anyone wanting to avoid strap marks, topless was acceptable (we didn't see anyone braving it at the hotel pool). The water park was really good and no queues when we went. Frequent local busses are only €1 and don't charge kids. There is also a funfair about 15mins walk East with kids rides and soft play as well as thrill rides. A huge big wheel gives nice views and is pretty tame.
Overall we had a great time, hotel feels much more like an independent than the usual first choice holiday village style. The staff are the highlight.
