Myself and my daughter (16) went for a week in the sun fully inclusive.
The hotel was fine, fairly clean, maids did our rooms on a daily basis - but did not pay attention to the dust on the floor! But hey we were on holiday who minds a bit of dust.
Not alot to do during the day - did see some avtivites going on but they were more for younger kids. You are issued with an 'all inclusive' wrist band... these are a bit annoying as they play havoc with your tan!
One of the pools was not open and the pool bar was not operational. We were told by our rep that they had had drainaige problems but advised it would open in a couple of days...... never did whilst we were there.
So only one bar open.... not a major problem but were a few queues in the evenings.
Food was OK, was fairly repetitive and not alot of meat, more pasta, salad and rice for main meals bonus though - unlimited wine with any meal other than breakfast!
There were quite a few 'older' holiday makers in this hotel - not that that was a problem as they mostly seemed friendly but not really anyone for my daughter to spend recreational time with.
The staff were very friendly especially the bar staff. Although I was kept waiting standing at reception for about 5-10 minutes whilst a couple of staff had a chat!
San Pedro and Peuto Benus was lovely. Really enjoyed our days there especially watching the million pound boats in and out of the harbour.
The evening entertainment...... well what can I say... Bingo everynight and believe me quite entertaining in three or four languages and the 'older' guests seemed to enjoy. We were also treated to a Westlife tribute band called 'Westlives'. They neither looked or sounded like Westlife but when you have alcohol on tap do we care! We also had Disco's..... never knew you could waltz to the latest hits! On our last night we were in for a treat...... a duo that could only compare as the Spanish version of Peters and Lea!!
Overall we had a good time...... I had to write this review as we thought we should share our enjoyable week
