Our family of 4 (2 kids aged 3 and 6) stayed here for 2 weeks in August. The room was small, but adequate for 4 people and in need of an update. Once the kids beds were in use, the living area was very cramped. The bathroom was TINY and difficult to use when trying to bath / shower children. We were on the 2nd floor, overlooking the bar area - not a good spot as the evening entertainment happens here, which is VERY loud and goes on until at LEAST 11pm - with 2 young kids it was difficult to get them to sleep.
The pool was small but ok, although the surrounding area was grassed, not tiled which meant that when wet (all of the day!) it became a slippery mud bath. The mud then got carried onto towels, sun loungers, over feet and into the pool. I suggest the hotel invests some money in tiling this area. Several children's feet (6 in one day once) were cut by tiles on the steps getting into the shallow area of the main pool, which also needs addressing by the hotel. To get a sunlounger, don't leave it later than 7.30am to go down to the pool. After this time they're all taken by some crafty towels with no owners!
The restaurant was ok - staff attentive and plenty of variety of food.
The reception staff were professional but unfriendly. No information was offered on arrival about the hotel, location, restaurant etc etc. All information around the hotel was only in German, Dutch and Spanish - luckily I know a bit of Spanish. The kids club was only run in German, so my kids were ostracised by the staff, despite me making sure they knew they were British. The staff DID speak ENglish, it's just they couldn't be bothered when only 5% of the guests were English speakers (this was pointed out to me on more than one occasion!). I do not go to Spain to only hear German spoken - I'd prefer to hear the native tongue!
Overall, I'd say there are plenty of nicer places to stay in this resort. This is not really a 4 star hotel. It's really a 3* that has somehow achieved another star by having, say, a hair-dryer in the bathroom . I would not recommend this place.
