We travelled with Thompson. Arrived late morning to a very well organised reception. Instead of having to queue for ages at the reception desk to check in, all guests were taken to the bar area and welcomed by Mr Chris & a cool drink. This was fairly brief and at the end pre prepared envelopes were given out with keys to the room, safe, restaurant card & towels cards. As lunch was served from 12.30 this left enough time to unpack then go and eat. So much easier than other hotels we've been to.
Hotel was clean and all the meals without exception were great with something to suit all tastes. The only issue we had was with a very grumpy waiter in the first part of the restaurant who clearly wasn't keen on the English - no problem, we just didn't sit there.
My husband experienced a nasty stomach & sickness bug whilst there but as there is an on site nurse this was quickly addressed and a couple of injections and some antibiotics soon sorted this. I started to have the same bug but again, went to the doctor and was soon quickly sorted.
The pool area was quite large and had entertainment in the morning, a break for a few hours, then more in the afternoon, mainly in the form of loud music / aerobics etc. Fine if that's what you want and great for the kids. Not a problem though as the beach was just far enough away not to hear it.
We went on a couple of 1/2 day trips. One to the crocodile farm which was good and one to see some of the sights which included a very well maintained museum (I'm not one for these but found it very interesting, helped by an English translation against all the exhibits) and Hammout Sous market which was quite noisy but quite good.
Over all I would definitely recommend this hotel. Good if you want a beach / pool holiday.
