In a nutshell my partner and I have had the most wonderful and relaxing holiday. You'll always find people that moan about something, wherever you go in the world. Just book it and have a fantastic time like we did :)
Bit more detail now!
Upon arrival we presented our booking slip (twin room) and we were automatically upgraded to a king size, sea view room. Our question was about to be, could we pay for a room upgrade (the twin room booking, we made in error) but the upgrade happened for us, before we could even ask the question. We took the lift while the bell boy quickly brought up our bags to the room.
The holiday was fantastic from there on really!
The maids work hard to clean your room leaving amusing and beautiful towel arrangements. The minibar in the room was re-stocked daily in the afternoon by a guy (separately to the maid).
No tea and coffee making facilities in the room so if you like that sort of thing just pack yourself a travel one.
The food is wonderful- plenty of variety, didn't personally experience any fighting over stuff just the odd 2 person queue here and there but you're on holiday- dont let a little queue spoil your stay :) Also you can get food/drink 24/7 and ice creams at the main pool.
I did get a poorly tummy from the hamburgers outside in the food court but thankfully the rest of the food was great! Try the pizza it's to die for.
The bars are all great, we found the best service at the main lobby bar, open 24 hours. Yes you will find a lot of German & Russian guests here- not many English like us but that didn't affect our stay at all. Try the blue Hawaii cocktail it's fab!
There is a charity run cat house at the bottom of the gardens near the beach where you can go see the kittens and cats. Most are very friendly but the kittens are very shy. I saw 2 poorly/injured cats during my stay but one looked new (un-neutered) and I'm assured the vet does visit regularly and that they will be looked at.
The pools are fab but we preferred the beach and swimming in the sea. The sea is quite salty but I found was good for my skin :)
The A-la cart restaurants are just incredible value for 10 euros. we tried the Italian and seafood - you get so much food and the waiter service is great- be warned they will top up your wine glass as soon as its half empty- dont get too drunk ;)
And a few grumbles (there had to be some)...
Only thing we would say is that our Thomas Cook rep, Andi if we are honest didn't appear to want to be there. We popped down a couple of times and even though it was well before the time she was due to leave there was a huff and she needed to get somewhere else. when I asked about the cat house she said she'd send more info to me in my room but never did. If you can't be bothered just say, I'd have looked for information somewhere else.
Also we booked a Turkish bath through Thomas cook but later heard the hotel were doing something similar complementary. Thanks guys would have been nice to keep that £50 or use it elsewhere.
We were at the beach one day, near the beach bar and the member of staff working on there came up to our sun loungers I was half asleep and my partner had headphones on (the big over ear type so hard to miss) the guy started kicking my partners chair until he turned around and asked him (and later me) to collect glasses!!! not only our drinks glasses but from other guests!! I thought this was incredibly rude and I did tell him that. He laughed which was more infuriating. I've also left that feedback with the hotel. He was the only one wearing glasses be warned if you see him!
Finally we arrived at the tail end of low season so was perfect for us, but on Wednesday (1st May) it was the official start of high season. Blaring music from the entertainment suddenly loads more people was visibly more difficult to get a drink at the bar. We didn't mind a couple of days of this but for us personally it would be too much for us in high season.
