Stayed at this hotel mid May 2013. The hotel when you arrive is stunning, big arches and nice gardens all behind a manned gate.
Our room was lovely, room and bathroom was modern, cleaned to a high standard each day by a cleaner that never seemed to have a day off during our stay, for this we regret not tipping him more as he was really nice and even waited for us to leave the room on around 3 occasions.
Only made breakfast two or three mornings through the week and would say that this was the weakest meal (Scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, hot dog sausages & general continental (cold meats, cheese's etc.)) There was also a chef making omelettes to order & there was a good selection of really nice breads. You could always find something to eat and in all honesty wasn’t too bad, just not as good in comparison with other meals.
Lunch and dinner was much better, with chips, pastas, pizzas and various other dishes and loads of different desserts. My boyfriend is quite picky when it comes to food but he never went hungry!
Cocktails and beers were all good & surprisingly strong!
Entertainment team were fun and not too pushy if you told them no firmly, all of the hotel staff including those on reception and bar were lovely and couldn’t do enough for you even if you don’t tip them which is nice as you don’t feel pressured.
Only thing that we could grumble about it we went at a quieter time of year and feel we would have liked to have arrived a week later as the hotel nightclub may have been busier :/ but I also wouldn’t like to be in this hotel at peak times of the year!
Activities I would recommend are the horse riding along the beach but if you are a decent rider and are expecting to gallop please don’t think that you can get away with shorts and crap shoes as you WILL get sore. We also went quad biking which was good but they promise you eye goggles when you book but there is no sign of them when actually out there so please take your own sunglasses, you will regret it otherwise.
Other tips: Take a travel mug- keeps the flies and sand out of your beer and keeps it cool even in the sun.
They only have English tea bags with breakfast in the main restaurant so if you are a tea drinker steal some and then take them to the bar during the day.
Actually join in with the activities, they are quite fun (we learned this on the last two days and regretted not participating earlier)
