So, i was rather hesitant after reading some of the reviews on here, but i thought i'd go for it as i got a pretty good deal, especially for early July.
Have to say there was nothing to worry about! We arrived at the hotel around 1pm, our room wasn't ready but the receptionist was very helpful and polite and allowed us to leave our luggage in the hold room and gave us our all inclusive bands so we could get some food while we waited an hour. The rooms are spotless, can't fault them. I was a bit worried about the prospect of having no air conditioning, but i didn't notice the lack of it at all! The hotel always had plenty to do, my boyfriend and I went to the busier of the two pools, the only downside was having to get up pretty early to get a sun lounger, but thats expected at basically every hotel! Even the gardens and pool area were spotless. The food was lovely, and i am a pretty fussy eater but i always found something! We didn't really explore the area that much, but there are quite a few bars and restaurants, however they were very expensive (6 euros for a bottle of smirnoff ice) and so we mainly stayed in the hotel. The beach is around a 10-15 minute walk, but there is also a shuttle bus to take you there too. I do agree that the hotel is dominated by germans mostly, but that didn't affect our stay!
All in all i would definately go back. The hotel is probably the best i have stayed in, however the area surrounding wasn't as 'buzzing' as i thought it would be, especially as the hotel is located in the main nightlife centre, but no doubt if you explored a bit further you'd find something more! The hotel is suitable for basically anyone, so don't hesitate and book it!
