We arrived at the hotel after the hours trip from the airport. On entering the hotel, the general feel of the hotel is that is hasn't been renovated since the eighties, dark wood, orange exterior, and anaglypta wallpaper. The staff are friendly, and explained things well. The rooms are a bit rubbish. Don't expect luxury, there are no tea making facilities, and we only had 6 sachets of shower gel and shampoo (3 of each) which weren't replenished. The towels were laundered but did have unexplained (rust?!) stains on them....chairs and wall lamps were also stained. The pillows are long and thin, which were ok, but some might find them too thin. There is a safe in the rooms, but they cost (i think) 2 Euro a day, plus a 3 Euro deposit. If you have a room in the building where the main reception is, you won't have a full sea view. The second building is closer to the beach, and this also has the dining room and bar in. The pool is quite depressing to look at (we had a room over looking it) and I didn't see that many people use it. The indoor pool is ok, but small and luke warm. Jacuzzi was put on whilst we were in there, but was freezing. The sauna (if you're half board) is free between 10am-2pm, otherwise it's 9 Euro each. The food was ok, but not brilliant. The hotel is geared up more for the Germans, as is the food and entertainment. We did check out the entertainment which consisted of some old dude on a synthesiser....mmmm, not the best. the good thing was, as we had long sleeves on, (all inclusive guests have wristbands on) the barman thought we were all inclusive and gave us enough vodka to hospitalise us. Local booze only though, Jack Daniels, for instance cost 5 Euro. We did visit some of the places mentioned on other reviews, Cheers, Rose & Crown (which is feels like you've stepped back in time to the 80's). Two places we liked were The Sun Deck , and definitely check out Cafe Del Sol, near the Rui hotel, lovely venue, and a 'chilled vibe'. There are lot of Spa shops near by and places selling the usual holiday tat. We went in April so it wasn't terribly busy but it was a bit windy! Oh and watch out for the countless hire bikes/scooters/buggy's etc, even though there is a bike lane, they do have to veer off it in places. If you get a chance, do go to Cala Ratjada for the market, which is on the back streets (go before 12pm) and Porto Christo, really pretty places for a days visit.
