We booked 3 rooms - for 3 single people, Initially my mum and I were put into 2 of the bungalows, 1 facing the sea and 1 facing the pool, but I wanted to be in Block A next to my friend.
Luckily, there were people who wanted to move from block A to the bungalows so swapped the day after we arrived. This meant all 3 of us could be together and nearer the road as the drive is quite long, and was easier as we were out everyday exploring
I was in Room A11, 2 beds, table, chair, 2 sets of draws, plenty of room for cloths, friend was in A9 and mum in A12 - all upper floor rooms. Balcony had 2 chairs and a table. I like these rooms as you could sit out on the balcony without people walking past you
Had no problem hanging towels on the balcony, had not problems from management
Room was cleaned every day by Awa and she did a fantastic job.
Hotel is located on the strip so have lots of bars and restaurants to chose from
Pool is cleaned and is warm, so not a massive shock when you jump in. Would have given 5 stars expect for me, I like to swim early in the morning around 8 but the pool did not open until 10 as it was being cleaned which was a disappointment for me. Never mind.
Monkeys are great and have some great pictures of them.
Breakfast was a perfect start to the day - sliced baguettes, Cheese, Ham, Jam, Marmalade, butter, bananas, Orange slices and Papaya. 3 different types of cereal - Frosties, Corn Flakes and I think Corn Rocks, 2 fruit juices, Coffee which I enjoyed, Tea, Sugar, Milk.
Every day was very hot which was brilliant and did cool down at night, sometimes needed a cardy to cover up
Hopefully going back next year. Well done HBC, hopefully get Block A again when we go back.
