After reading the reviews on this hotel and getting the price we did through Thomson we weren't expecting much!! We were pleasantly surprised. Hotel room was large, clean and bright and airy. The restaurant was modern and had clearly been recently updated and the grounds were beautiful.
This isn't a spa resort or anything fancy but it certainly did the job. 4 very hot sunny days and 2 days of rain for a European Easter holiday break and a bargain all inclusive price we just couldn't believe our luck. Our only gripe was the balcony. It was positioned at the side so overlooked a road and there wasn't enough room for two people to sit out at once. When we complained as we were told at check in it was overlooking the pool we were told the hotel was fully booked but come back tomorrow and we would be moved to a lovely room overlooking the pool on the first floor. We went back twice the next day and yes they did have another room for us overlooking the pool but it was ground floor and very dark as it was shielded by trees. So we went back. The rep was there and after telling us repeatedly they had no other rooms they eventually found one! We were able to take a look at it before agreeing to take it and it was wonderful. Overlooking the entertainment area (which I was worried about because of the noise, but it wasn't bad at all). As for the room it was large, bathroom was much bigger and it had a very large balcony which got the sun in the morning and afternoon. Bonus!!
We really aren't the type of people who complain but we do like sitting on the balcony and were told we would have a pool view so it was a matter of principle to ask to move in the end. But so glad we did.
Apart from that a wonderful holiday and if we can get it anywhere near that price again will definitely be going back.
