Just returned from 4th visit in 3 years to senatori. Again a lovely room with swim up... Which we found better than the private pool rooms we had previously. Second visit in May and the restaurant is understaffed as other years, leading to below average service from frustrated staff, this is a real shame because a few more waiters would solve the problem and make the main restaurant a more enjoyable experience. Food was good, plenty of variety for a week away. We did skip meals due to feeling like we were always at dinner or lunch. Queues for the restaurant at busy times were again due to understaffing, cleaning and preparation of tables an issue. I will say that those there work really really hard but are put under unnecessary pressure.
This time there were a fair number of people suffering with sickness. I have never known this at senatori before....
The showcast this year were not a patch on previous two years and there is a big gap in entertainment between 8 and 10pm. In previous years a band/duo would have played or Tom who was very entertaining. It seems this crop are just not that talented and the entertainment manager was absolute Butlins, in fact I'd bet that's where he learnt his trade and it is reflected in the resident shows. I must say that three of the six nights were good. All of these were external acts and worth watching.
Overall, enjoyable week, nothing is ever perfect but the rooms make this place.
