This was our Fourth Stay. Once again had a great relaxing time, Although the staff turn over is high every year the quality they provide makes the holiday complete. The Waiter, Adam is a real star to say they work 14/15 hours a day for 6 Months they are a cheerful bunch.
The food standard is still very good. I often found myself going down the line of "Tins" see some chicken choose that with some rice and think good...then a little further find a nice stew at the end, look at the plate and think "Okay..Chicken Rice...and stew" perhaps a little menu card at the start of the line so you can plan what to pick :) or even on the tables, so so you don't have to mixing your food :D
The top pool was lovely although needed to be up a little earlier for the place you really want :) There did seem plenty of room at the bottom pool. of course it was a little quieter with it been towards the end of September.
Speaking of the pools..one thing that are needed are NEW PARASOL HOLDERS, many of them did not grip the parasol and most parasols had a few holes in them and looked a little tatty,
In my last review last year wrote in regard to the hill between the bottom and top pools ---- "..haha. just had to take it slow, a small bench half way up would be nice..just for a little rest :D" I am pleased to say they have benches on the way up both on the main path and the one on the back "forest" path -- Well Done Hotel Greenland
The Nightly entertainment was okay, but towards the end of the 2 weeks we found ourselves after Dinner staying above the Tipsy Turtle bar near the reception or towards the back of the swimming pool near the pool bar having a coffee or drink or just going to the top pool bar as we had seen most or similar acts/programme for the past 4 years, after saying that it wouldn't stop us returning :) and the team work very hard.
The superior rooms are worth that little more, They seem a lot quieter, not as much shouting and banging doors, as we had spent a afternoon in the standard room as a late checkout in block 5 room 515 the chatter outside from the cleaners and moving of furniture due to the paper thin walls and doors the sound just travelled around and to have a sleep was difficult as I am a light sleeper. So its a personal choice. But the standard rooms themselves were fine and if I wasn't such a light sleeper I wouldn't have a problem at all.
I haven't mentioned too many good points as I would be here all night to fill the review the easy way would be to say. We hope to return next year as WE love the place, perfect place, perfect scenery, Perfect location (for us) Perfect resort.
