We have just returned from a one week holiday with friends which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. We arrived after the all inclusive had closed but the Hotel had laid on salad and cold meats along with bottles of wine which was much appreciated. Our bedroom was very nice, clean and had a balcony with a beautiful view over the mountains and a partial view of the sea. We were amazed to find that all drinks were included on the all inclusive, even though the brochure stated 'local beers, wines etc'. All premium brands were available, almost everything you could ask for, including an excellent cocktail list, no flavoured syrups used at all, they were made as they should be. The food was excellent, breakfast was a bit basic, bacon etc if you wanted a hot breakfast or croissants, cakes, breads, jams, cheeses, cold meat. Breakfast was eaten on a terrace with beautiful views, what better start to the day could you ask for. Lunch was taken at the poolside restaurant, a wide choice available, pastas, pizzas, chicken, hot or cold sandwiches, salads etc. If you wanted wine you got a bottle and it was nice wine too. The evening meal was taken in the main restaurant which was a beautiful place to eat, there was a buffet for salad / vegetables and a choice of 4 starters and 4 main courses, desserts were from a buffet. The main courses always included 1 fish dish and 1 vegetarian option. Every meal we ate was really nice, well cooked and very tasty. All the waiters were very friendly and helpful, we could not fault anything at all throughout our stay. We have stayed all over the world in all inclusive hotels and this has to be one of the 'best value for money' ones there is. The only thing we think which could be improved is the pool area, this could probably do with sprucing up a bit, it was a bit dated, new toilets needed there. We did see the pool being cleaned each morning when we sat there for a while before we went for breakfast. The water was very clean to swim in, I have been in far worse pools than this in the Caribbean. The pool area was a very peaceful area to sunbathe, the only sound to be heard was the church bells from the local village and the crickets/birds, absolute bliss! Also the evening entertainment could be better, the music was geared up towards the elderly Italian guests. Our Rep Sam was excellent, always seemed to be there, she was very helpful. We took the shuttle bus into Sorrento a couple of times with no problem at all, just had to book the times you wanted at reception the day before. It runs from 7am to after 11pm - so plenty of scope. All in all an excellent choice of Hotel - doing half board in the present climate is a definite No. We will most certainly go back, but stay for 2 weeks next time.
