We went for a short break in Nov 12.
The staff are very friendly and their service standards are very good. They didn't challenge the behavior of some of the other holiday makers, some of which became beyond irritation, especially with a free bar. Luck of the draw I suppose
We found the apartments a little dated but OK and clean, however there was no aircon in our apartment so imagine it would be hot in the summer.
There are very good views of the surrounding area and a free bus to the local town ( which for the most part is totally closed this time of years) it isnt a long walk but the return walk will certainly take you breath away and help you burn off the extra calories from the buffett! the local town looks ok but was shut for the most part. Local beach is clean and sandy with relatively shallow water. Would look good for kids but imagine it will be busy in season
The pool was clean and there was a lifeguard on duty with a separate children pool. It was partially covered which means even if the weather inst good you could still swim out of the elements
We went All inclusive. The drinks are all local spirits which is variable in its quality ( the brandy is truly a taste sensation, but not in the good way) The beer is served in a annoyingly small glass. The bar also closes at 11pm
The food is ample and reasonable, hardly a taste experience. Beer, wine and soft drinks are available, again the glasses for beer are tiny. I chose the hotel because the reviews on food and drink were good. I suppose its what you are used too. We found the food ok, nothing to complain about, but it was just that- OK. They do offer packed lunches which is useful if you want to go out and about
It was advertised as evening entertainment- there was non whilst we were there
One thing to be wary about, you have to be out of the room at 12 and if you are on all inclusive that's when your all inclusive stops. They do provide somewhere to put your bags but in our case we were not flying to 9pm in the evening. This wasn't made clear when we booked and with nothing open locally we were kind of stuck. The hotel allowed us to have our lunch there as we arrived after lunch on the first day. Thankfully I had some Euros but if you go out without money and you have a late flight- you will be very left hungry and thirsty!
Overall it was OK. I'm not sure I would want to spend two weeks there, especially if there are large groups of inconsiderate holiday makers there in the winter, as there simply isn't anywhere to escape to. Dont be expecting a luxury escape, it simply isnt that but if want somewhere which is functional, clean and reasonable value and if you get a good price then this will be ok for you
