Having had a great press from our daughter who worked here last year, we were very much looking forward to our holiday.
There is no doubt the club is very attractive, the management ( Ben Shearer) contrary to other reviews seemed genuinley concerned that we had a good time, and was extremely helpful in a minor emergency ( lost car keys).
However, as in other reviews, the alcohol/teenager mix was a problem for us. Travelling with an 18 and 14 year old we were appalled that older kids had been buying spirits for our younger son, the staff are apparently "blind" to this and it would serve the management well to address this issue.
As for the sunbeds, yes, if you don't get there by 10am you are unlikely to get a spot, despite a pep talk by Ben about not reserving beds, we saw people take over three decks where nobody ever appeared, pretty irritating! Although we never saw staff using them, as others have.
The food at lunchtime was OK and actually we never had a problem with waiting, although the pizzas always came at least 10 minutes before everything else. The party nights are from a gourmet point of view, not worth it, and the wine is average and expensive, remembering we are on a remote island!
Funnily enough our 18 year old whom we fully expected to want to go and work there when he finishes school next year, was quite ambivalent, " maybe" he said. Pretty much sums it up.
