Got back Wed 11th June 2014 following a week of what we would say is one of, or the best holidays that we have had.
Greeted by singing and dancing staff, procedure of checking in was very straight forward and very fast.
Provided with arrival drink and slice of cake which went down very well!
These were kept incredibly clean by the maids. Our room was cleaned by lunchtime each day and fresh towels provided daily if required.
The room was decorated nicely with a flat screen TV with many English channels
Only slight issue was that we were surprised that the soft drinks in the mini-bar were not replaced during the week.
Weather was very hot (30 - 35 degrees) every day, occasionally there was a slight breeze in the afternoons but this was nice after a day sunbathing in the heat!
Food was fantastic for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner each day. There is a different theme for each nights dinner and they were equally as good as each other. Lots of variety and the food was kept hot at all times.
Best food experienced at an All Inclusive hotel so far!
You are also allowed one visit to the Indian A La Carte restaurant , and this was also very nice food and service.
The outside pool, although pretty cold water was kept very clean at all times.
We were at the pool at 8 most mornings and there were plenty of sun loungers free. Even if one were to arrive at mid morning, the pool staff would find you somewhere to lay for the day. You are also provided with pillows and cushions for the loungers, without having to ask.
Several water dispensers are located around the pool for convenience. (which is a great idea)
Drink selection at the pool bar during the day was fairly limited to soft drinks, beer and wine (no cocktails!)
All staff in the hotel are polite, very helpful and always in good spirits. They are the best group of staff at a hotel we have come across.
They all spoke great English, which is handy because 99% of the guests are English!
Particular mention to Hedi the guest services manager, who was a great laugh and very helpful to all guests.
The entertainment was pretty much non-existent. It wasn't until our last two nights that we got to see a show. The entertainment is located across a swimming pool which was very dull lit and hard to see. Also, struggle to find a seat or see in front of others. We ended up playing cards and snooker most nights.
We found that the lobby bar drinks were of poor quality and kept getting our drinks wrong. Needless to say the Pinacolada was more like dish water. We got most of our drinks from the bar downstairs which was great atmosphere and great drinks.
Visited the gym every day. Fairly limited with only a few machines and equipment available. Also, no air conditioning but situated in great location on the beach and still good.
Ate at the snack bar once after a late check in to the hotel, but only ate there once. Table service also! Good for ice cream and afternoon tea/cake.
Only a few tweaks to be made but we had a fantastic stay and can already say we have recommended this hotel to 2 couples who will be going later this year/next year and will 100% be returning which we have never said before.
