I recently stayed at the Continental Plaza Beach Resort with x3 of my girlfriends and had a superb All Inclusive holiday.
Firstly, the weather was amazing every single day (33 – 38 degrees on average).
The hotel has a very impressive marble foyer/ reception – that is spotlessly clean. There are tables and booths in this area where guests can relax and there are always waiters at hand to bring you whatever refreshments you need.
The all male receptionists are always there to help. They speak English, Italian and Russian fluently which was truly helpful.
The hotel manager was on duty when we arrived and in fact completed our check in. Charming , friendly and polite Aasaf upgraded us to sea view rooms!! This was unexpected - but greatly appreciated.
Our twin bedded room was wonderfully large - with its own private balcony that overlooked both the swimming pool and sea. There was air con, a safe and a mini that was stocked with coke, juice and water - all complimentary for the first day. The bar was then replenished daily with water only.
The room was serviced every day and we were given fresh towels daily also. The house keeping staff were sweet and placed towel swans, birds and love hearts on our beds.
The hotel grounds were vast with at least 8 different swimming pools (some suitable for young children others for adults). The pool near to our room had a swim up bar that served both alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks from 10-18.
There were always plenty of sun beds and umbrellas available - which are definitely needed during the hot days.
The hotel had it own private beach too. But my group found it a little too crowded and noisy and preferred to stay by the pool.
The food at the hotel was …ok but lacked variety. The menu should have included more fresh vegetables and at breakfast it would have been great if there were whole fruits. EG. Whole bananas, apples, pears, peaches oranges etc.
A few areas of improvement:
Lights should be placed by the steps that lead to apartment block 400+. It was very hard to see in this area at night. Also many of the steps in this area were broken - and should be replaced urgently
There was no evening entertainment – comedy acts or belly dancers or live music would have been good
The Sea food restaurant was my least favorite of the al a carte restaurants - the staff seemed stressed and the menu was not explained when we were seated. The food was served cold and one of our group was still waiting for their starter while the others had begun their mains
Ice cream should be available daily. This would have been perfect at the swim up bar
Guest could be given token for at least x2 complimentary fresh squeezed juice drinks (you have to pay for this currently)
The beach shisha bar was great, but had no music and served no alcohol
All in all a lovely hotel, with friendly staff and great accommodation - I would definitely go back again!
