I visited the blue bay classic with my other half and booked it through Secret Escapes so got a really good deal. We arrived at the hotel quiet late but there were plenty of staff around to help with bags and getting our room sorted. We were originally given a twin room so asked if there were any available doubles, the next day we were moved to a double room which was one of their suites with a sea view. It was a lovely room, bit dated but bed was comfy, bathroom was really nice and was clean.
The pool was really nice and relaxed, being an adult only pool it really made a difference. There were pool activities during the day, Jimmy did well in getting everyone involved!! The beach was only just a short walk away and the staff at Faros were friendly and were good at keeping the women selling their knock offs away!
The food was really good, couldn't fault it at all! The chefs were constantly out checking the food and the waitresses were very quick at getting drinks and clearing tables. They do have an Al A Carte restaurant, Cuba Bistro, we ate here on the last night and the food was really good, worth a visit. Their cocktails were good too! If you fancy eating outside the complex then we'd recommend visiting Tiffany's which is just a short walk down the beach front towards old town. Their steak's were amazing and service was incredible.
We also visited the spa, I have read reviews saying it wasn't clean but we had a lovely experience there and it was spotless.
The only thing I'd have to say is that the floor of the room did get a bit dusty and our sheets weren't changed as often as we would have wanted but this didn't make a dent in how much we enjoyed the holiday!
Overall it is a 4* hotel but we were informed that they are upgrading the classic rooms to that of the platinum they run next door for next season so definitely worth a revisit!
