Just returned from a one week all inc holiday and had a fantastic time. The rooms where large and spacious, food was great and had a good choice, all areas were clean and well maintained. What makes the hotel stand out from the others is the staff, they are fantastic! I can't praise them enough. Beers and wine were of decent quality but I couldn't stomach the spirits
Areas for improvement:
The entertainment was simply terrible, the worst I have seen. Make sure to carry a knife out of the restaurant the evening the "live singer" is on and either chuck it at him or self harm, which ever you prefer.
The animation team need to get some imagination, very poor poolside games for any teenagers or the young at heart.
Beware of the male member of the animation team with the woven hair, he is very creepy around young women, we caught him outside fumbling with a guest on one occasion and was pestering some of the young male guests to bring girls back to the hotel from the one next door.
The spa was worth a trip, was decent value at £30 for almost 2 hours but the prices were steadily increasing as the hotel gets more busy. The reception staff were miserable as sin and hard work.
Port el kantoe is dead as a door nail but worth a visit on a sunny afternoon to sit have a bite to eat and a beer or two looking at some nice boats. Beers are no more than £2 and a steak or decent seafood dish is about £8. We made the mistake of going one evening and out of all the places to eat, and there are many, we only seen one couple eating which put us off. It might be the time of year.
