I thought I was being a bit critical of the place but most of my cricisms are repeated by other reviewers. Great location, friendly welcome by gate guard, Ok rooms, uninspiring meals. The rooms are comfortably furnished with a comfortable bed and nice pillows (I always take my own pillow). A bar fridge is needed, along with a mat under the dresser chair and rubber or felt pads on the cupboard doors which are spring loaded and tend to slam shut, which disturbs neighbours as every sound can be heard through the walls. Our bathroom was poorly laid out as the door opens in front of the basin , and the shower could do with a good clean. The one day we had set aside to relax at the pool turned out to be grey and miserable so we were restricted to our rooms, and guess what- the only 2Tv channels were sports round-up and fothcoming attractions on M-net! Nobody could sort this out. Food was tasty but only just better than institutional cooking, definitely not fine dining. On our second night I thought the vegetables were left over from the previous night, but they couldn't have been as they were barely hot and virtually raw. Seeing one of the waiters using her finger to break up the lumps in the sugar pot also put me off having tea or coffee. This is the first place I've been where a waiter does not offer to pour tea or coffee at breakfast. Some of the best holidays I've had are at places without fancy facilities but with fantastic service, and Hulala falls way short in this area.
