We were in this hotel from 21st to 25th October. It was the perfect holiday. I went there with my husband and 13 year old daughter. My daugghter had the best time ever and we had the nicest time . There is so much to do in the hotel you wouldnt want to go out.
the rides are good for anyone from small age to teenagers to adults. The hotel staff was very friendly and ever willing to help.
The hotel rooms are a bit run down, the showers were acting stange with only a tricklle of water and unable to control the temperature, as it would be very very hot or very very cold. When we told the reception they came and had a look and said it was some fault with themain hotel suppy, So struggled a bit to have a shower during the last few days.
The food was very good, lack variety but very tasty.
All drinks and cocktails were free and barmen was ever willing to make you a cocktail however many times you would ask him. For the children there were non alchoholic cocktails which the barmen was ever willing to make. (with a smile)
The holel was very clean and there are c;leaners cleaning all the time. The staff taking care of the rides are extremely friendly.
ONE WARNING - there are tour guides, specially if you have booked through Hoteld4U, who would come and try to sell you tours at a massively inflated rate,. One such guid called HAMMID who came to meet us the day after we checked into the hotel lied to us and sold us a tour to the mountains telling us that it was going to the waterfalls. We paid him a lot of money and the next day when we were going for this tour it was acctually a tour to the foot hills of the mountains. We then refused to go on the tour as this is not what we wanted and you could get a tour of the mountais and water falls or similar tour for half the price from the hotel. When we confronted Hammid he said that if we come with Hotels4u / medhotels that we should go with them and only with them. I called up Hotels4u and they denied such thing obviously!! Hammid then refused to pay the money back and said he was going to pay the hotel directly to take us to the mountains. We found out that was lie the day before we were to leave and missed the oppertunity to go on the tour. After many arguments and fights, which you don't need when one is on holiday we got the money back and went on the tour with hotel in the last minute.
He is still going ariound the hotel every morning trying to get gests to go on his tours so BE AWARE !!!! check out the hotel rates and the rates with the animation team if you are planning on any tours.
