Just returned from a fantastic weeks holidays here. I think I should start by saying I'm an air hostess and I'm lucky enough to travel and stay in some wonderful hotels around the world and have consequently found myself becoming a bit of a hotel snob but this hotel surpassed all my expectations! we travelled with our two young daughters, 3 and 10 months old and were treated like absolute royalty from the very second we were met at the airport!
The staff were all exceptional, courteous, polite, helpful, friendly and made so much effort with our little girls it was heartwarming, always talking and acknowledging us all as we walked past! We had a problem whereby we left our pram at the airport on arrival and the staff were so helpful and efficient in sorting it for us.
(Carl and Esteban in particular)
The pool is wonderful! Soooo clean and our daughter had hours of fun playing in it and also at the play parks which is located right next to the pool so no need to move from your sun lounger while keeping an eye on them!
The food is outstanding and although a little expensive it's actually worth the cost!
We were upgraded to a suite for no extra charge upon arrival if we were willing to forgo a balcony which we jumped at. The rooms are beautiful, huge and spotlessly clean! The man that cleaned our room was so kind and always came to see if we needed anything, extra water etc!
Can I just add, anyone travelling with children don't worry, you can get everything you need and more including pampers nappies at half the price than home!
Overall a really fantastic holiday! We hope to return one day!! Thank you !!
