Let's be clear - this is not a four star resort. The rooms are very tired, and the "Main Restaurant" is nothing more than a cafeteria serving a very limited range of unimaginative food. There is, to be fair, always a decent selection of salad.The fact that the menu is very German-oriented is not necessarily a problem - it's just so 'same-ish'.
Others have mentioned the transfer time. Be aware, if you pay the extra £150 for taxi transfers, you only seem to save about 30 minutes - it's still two hours sitting in a cab after a 5 hour flight.
The grounds of this hotel are indeed beautifully landscaped, and there was never any shortage of sun-loungers by any of the pools or on the beach. The all-inclusive drinks are fine, but the leaflet you get when you arrive is not accurate. The lobby bar should be open 24 hours, and serving alcohol 10:00 - 24:00 - it is not. It opens when they feel like it.
On the up-side, the leaflet also says there is a charge for the room safe, but on checking out this turned out to be free.
I was fortunate that I can speak a little German - without it, there would have been several occasions when I could not have been served.
It has been said before - this hotel should not be marketed to British customers. It is aimed entirely at Germans and Russians. I really cannot recommend it unless, perhaps, you are going in a group (for company) and some of you speak German (so you can be served.
