Our family of 4 had a wonderful half term week. It started before we even left with the excellent customer service from Guillermo & the team.
We upgraded to a 2-bed bungalow & it was worth it with our 6-y-o and 10-mth old. We needed the space & we got a 2nd bathroom, a patio area & a bonus roof terrace. Love the space.
Food was good every day for half board. Even catered a little for Gluten-free. Well done.
There were plenty of sun loungers & room by the pool. People tended not to put towels down. This all coupled with the Animation team who laid on kids club, and daytime activities (& an evening mini disco) was just enough without being overbearing.
All this deserved a 5-star rating. It's also just a 10-15min walk to the beach & there are a few cafes along the way that have free Wi-Fi. I would recommend the Cappuccino Shop which is just past the Hypo Dino Supermarket. There is also a supermarket on-site to buy water/coke & essentials to keep in your fridge. All bedrooms were air conditioned too.
Any downsides. Yes. But don't let it spoil your holiday. We were lucky to be in bungalow 38, if we were in the poolside ones (no.24) or 1-11 it would have been noisy.
We had a small any infestation on our window.
The beds, as per the other comments, I found a little hard & mine creeped every time I got out (2 singles were pushed together to make a double).
All in all, happy to recommend.
