Well were do you start? The place and people are great and the aqua park is great fun. However the food is dire and tasteless and very very very repetetive in all 5 restaraunts. Mainly catered for the German/Russian pallet we think which is very bland. We did 2 weeks and was ready for home and good tasting meal after a few days and into te second week we were deperate enough to go to the McDonalds a 15minute walk away once we had walkd for 10 minutes across the site coz its a massive place and is very beutiful to stay here but you need food to survive unfortunately. You can only eat so many danish pastries to fill you up (which were lovely). The kids loved the MacDonalds but i left mine as it was terrible and looked more like it was boiled meat than cooked. The Hotel, rooms, complex and people are lovely however they said they were getting an English cook next year. I'm not one of these people who goes on holiday wanting egg and chips which is what i dont like about Spain cos the food is too easy english cooking with chicken n chips and things, i love nice tasting food from different cultures and couldnt find it here as nothing was either cooked fully nor had any taste. In the chinese restaraunt you'd think you couldnt go wrong but how wrong could we have been, the nicest thing they did n 2 weks was a coliflower curry strange but it did taste nice. During the day it was nice to snack on freshly made pizzas to your taste and some fries with salad if you wanted but again after a day or so a change would have been nice. Lasagne was on the menu one night and i thought fantastic but when i lifted the lid it was a single layer of thinly spread mince with no sauce and then topped with 2 layers of lasagne pasta and then a white thick sauce that was i dont know what, i did give the smiling chef the benefit of doubt and plated some but after a mouthfl that i begrudingly swollowed went for some macceroni pasta which had a look of a sauce on it but the flavour had gone somewhere else. Not many people smiled at meal times but the Germans kept going back for more of the various vegs and things in watery looking sauces that did'nt taste of much. During some of the days and most nights the barbecue chefs turned up and cooked chicken liver that at 1st we thought was pieces of steak because it was shaped like it and thin made burgers again with not much taste toit all and sometimes the chicken was a bit dodgy(not cooked through occasionally). They did try but just badly, we asked other English people what they thought as we thought we were being fussy but all said the same awful and land, not very appertising ost days. Their was loads of food always out in the restaraunts but you did'nt want it after trying everything and not getting any flavours and nothing that had you wanting more. The barmen were hopeless at pouring beer as you ended up with 1/2 a glass of froff i kept telling them English pour please not German with big head theyjust laughed but got used to us. As with most on holidays they were nuts with the spirits measures as always so you had to get 2 glasses as they never held back even when asked. All the staff were fantastic and worked very hard and long days and always smiled. The place is beautiful and very clean and relaxing, but you need the food to be better before going as you are a bit out of it here and is a taxi ride to anywhere near enough, which you need to book at reception with a return or the local taxi men will seriously rip you off for a shortjourney as we found out. In all if you want to diet and have a great place to stay go for it, if you want a great holiday were you can eat dont go (unless your German or Russian not sure of that though i never asked any of them if they liked the food). Shame really. The nightlife in the complex is a little poor as you sometimes had various egpytian singers who were ok but not much else going on. It sometimes felt like being a captive in an open prison with the all inclusive wrist band you had to wear.
