My Wife, Son, Daughter, Granddaughter and I have just returned today from a 2 week stay at this hotel. I looked on all of the reviews and became a little concerned about what I read on the hotel. All of mine and my Family's concerns were groundless. We had a great stay there, made better by the presence of a microwave in both our roos so that we were able to wam up/reheat food for mainly our Granddaughter and to a lesser extent us.
The breakfast was adequate and filling and yes, there was no "traditional" bacon & eggs but hey, we got more than we paid for and we didn't expect more.
Most of the staff were helpful and always willing to listen to what you had to say.
There was one of the catering staff of more mature age who was always cheerful and would speak to me regularly, especially if I was cuddling our Granddaughter, I never saw her unhappy or surly.
There were of course a couple of gripes, neither of which detracted from the enjoyment of our holiday. The first one was that pool users should not be allowed to smoke around the area; the second gripe is that the table layout was a bit cramped if all the tables were in use and the use of round tables made it worse.
Overall we got more than we paid for and I would't hesitate to go back there again.
