We stayed as part of a large coach group of disabled travellers, based at the Salamander Shores for 7 days.
The staff were very helpful & made the effort to ensure our stay was comfortable.
The meals, served in our own group room, were tasty, varied & hot, considering they were cooked elsewhere on the premises. The buffet breakfast was a huge hit with our travellers, along with the packed lunches supplied freshly made & our evening meals as well. The wait staff were wonderful, mixing with our group & making them feel special....particularly on NYE, when we had our own disco. The bar staff were great, getting into the swing of things & dancing with our group members. Well done guys.
The rooms were a little dated, but were clean & the beds freshly made every day.
The TVs...they were old analogue sets with poor reception.
New TVs would make a huge difference.
The disabled room was great, but was the furthest from the dining areas of the hotel.
This made it difficult for our travellers on walking frames.
The upper car park ramp entry to the accomodation wing was dangerous...no rails for support & very narrow. We had to go the "long" way via the lift to ensure none of our travellers fell.
The pool was well maintained & a pleasure to relax in.
There was plenty of room for 2 coaches in the upper car park.
Overall we were very happy with the Ibis Salamander Shores & would recommend it.
I would certainly return :)
