As the title says, this hotel is a good one and over all we had a nice holiday. A great many of the guest we spoke to had stayed at this hotel 10, 15, 17 times and more. their reviews were excellent but perhaps they did not have much to compare with as I cannot say that anything was exceptional or fantastic.
Many have said that the location is great but the sunbathing area is too small for the number of beds it contains. The pool is a little on the small side with a small space for non/poor swimmers to enjoy. The beach opposite is excellent but be prepared to pay 13 euros a day for 2 beds and a parasol. We stayed pool side a few days but enjoyed the beach more.
The food was good in general, breakfast very good, the evening meal good but unvaried. The show cooking was too basic and nothing shone out to excite the would be diner. The wine was good and fairly priced.
Drinks were basic and a little pricey. I think they have missed out here as when you are away on holiday you want to be more inventive on what you drink. Cocktails seemed to be an afterthought, they did try to promote a different drink each night but without much effort.
It may seem that this is a negative review, but it is not, it is based on fact and observation and overall we both enjoyed our stay. The hotel is clean, bright and modern. the room we had was ideal for our needs and I would recommend anyone to stay in a room with pool and sea view providing you are closer to the sea rather than the road. We stayed in room 708, had fantastic views, did not hear any noise in the early hours.
Every member of staff was pleasant and helpful, they all seemed to enjoy working there.
The evening entertainment ranged from excellent, special mention to Four Tops, Neil Diamond and Westlife singers to naff , Tom Jones and a girl trio. We would have enjoyed the Micheal Jackson group if they had turned the music down as guests were being driven out with fingers in their ears. We made it to half time then made our escape.
I hope this is of help, it is a good hotel, rate No.1. The problem with being the best is trying to stay there, I hope the hotel manages to make it more 'special' there by deserving the title of No.1.
