We stayed here on our first holiday since the birth of our 5month old son in late November. I had great expectations because of the Ramada hotel brand but it was only okay.
We were welcomed by fumes from smokers in an otherwise beautiful reception hall. We were given a room on the 1st floor of block 3 which was weird because they had rooms in the block where the reception hall was and it would have been more convenient than having to go outside just to get to block 3. It was a nice and clean room with a balcony but the bathroom was half done (wobbly sink and taps) and it was a shower not a bath tub making it tricky to bath the little one.
We had a good night's sleep on the few nights when we were not disturbed by the drilling noise from the builders working on Block 3 (very annoying - kept waking up the baby).
The swimming pool area was quite nice and big enough for everyone without feeling overcrowded. The food was good and staff were very friendly and helpful but reception and guest relations need to improve on knowledge of the area as they could not give directions.
My overall opinion is that I expected so much more from Ramada especially since it was considerably more expensive than other hotels like Saturn Palace where we stayed in April. It seemed more like an all inclusive version of Premier Inn to me which would be fine if we paid a lower price. Lots of improvements needed to make it worth the money otherwise, they should consider reducing their rates.
