Arrived at night and waited in reception to be taken to our room, which took about 20mins. Unfortunately, we had just missed dinner so we went to the room, freshened up and headed to the pool bar. Waiters very friendly and comical, but quite slow due to chatting up female holiday makers.
Got up next morning for breakfast which wasn't too bad as they have on the spot cooking stations for eggs and omellettes etc. There was also a variety of fresh bread, fruit and salad, cereal, yoghurt and the usual continental breakfast stuff.
Lunch is served in the buffet restaurant or you can eat at the beach bar which isn't exactly on the beach as you have to go back up the steps to access it. This restaurant becomes an a la carte restaurant at night. Food in there was just ok, mainly cold though even after they supposedly cook it while you wait.
Dinner was also in the main buffet restaurant, and for me this was my big dread of the day! I mostly ate bread and soup in the evening as everything else was cold. I am definately not fussy with food but this was a major issue for me the whole week we were there. I realise they cater for alot of people but is it really to much to ask for hot or even warm food??? By day 3 i got the point where i felt nauseaus as dinner time approached, so we started to either book the a la carte restaurants or go out. I have to say the chinese a la carte was very good, its just a shame you can only use it once per stay or i would have used it most nights.
Drinks were very weak and were clearly watered down. The wine was drinkable but left you with heartburn and the beer was also very weak, probably low alcohol variety or watered down again. Also, a quick warning: Order a few drinks just before midnight as dead on 12 they close everything and just leave. You can't even buy drinks at that bar after 12.
Rooms are nice to look at but thats where it stops!!! We requested a double bed as this was our first holiday on our own without our children in about 5 years. We arrived the first night to twin beds which we couldn't even push together as they were 'built in'. The space between the vanity unit and the bed was to narrow to walk through. My husband walked through the first night and cut his leg from bashing it on the bed. This became a regular occurance through the week and a frequent joke with most of the other english holiday makers we spoke to. Bathroom was ok although the shower door held absolutely no use as the seal on it was broken and everytime you had a shower it leaked really bad causing a big puddle on the floor.
non-exsistent!!!!!!!! (well unless people watching is your thing. Russians are hilarious to watch as they dress as if it were 1965 or something.)
Beware the photographers! We came out of our room most evenings for dinner to be pestered by this photographer who just would not take no for an answer and on several occasions walked into the retsaurant to flashing in our faces. Actually began to understand how celebs must feel being constantly papped, lol!
Finally i would like to say this hotel wouldn't suit anyone who needs help getting around as it is very hilly!
This wasn't the worst hotel but it wasn't the best. It could actually be a great hotel if they sorted out the food and other small things. I have written alot about food but for me this was my biggest issue and did make a massive difference to my holiday and i struggled with it so much that it would prevent me going to this resort again. Hope this review has been helpful.
