Just returned from a week at this hotel with my family. I was a bit worried before we went after reading some of the reviews about refurbishment, but we were more than happy with our holiday. Yes, there are parts of the hotel that still need a bit of tarting up, but it can't all be done at once and what they have refurbished has been done to a good standard. There was no building work going on when we were there.
We were in a family room on the ground floor, which wasn't one that had been refurbished. Having said that it was fine, the bathroom was clean and the beds were huge! Individual camp beds for the kids was good as they don't like sharing a double. The bathroom could do with a revamp as it was a bit "90's" but I'm very fussy about hygiene and wouldn't have stayed anywhere dirty. This wasn't dirty, just a bit dated.
The pools were great, my kids are 9 and 7 and loved the pools (although the 9 year old is a bit old for the slides now!) The pool bar was very convenient and we took full advantage of the daily happy hour, as we were half board. The "La Choza" restaurant (I think it was called that) served good food, although I was put off by the amount of doves there were landing around the hot buffet area. The food was all covered but even so, I didn't like that very much!
Breakfast and evening buffets were good, a little daunting on day 1 as we weren't used to such a large choice of food all in one place! But we soon got used to the routine and there was always something we could find to eat, even for my very fussy daughter. They loved the chocolate fountain! One piece of feedback we gave to the staff was the quality of the orange juice from the machine was quite poor, it was mass produced diluted concentrate stuff, not nice at all. But I guess when there are so many people to cater for this might be the only option. Having said that, there was always Cava on offer at breakfast time if you wanted it!!
The staff were really helpful and efficient. One waiter in particular (his name was Jesus) was great with our kids and was always talking to them and making them laugh. There was also a woman who came round daily at mealtimes asking us for feedback and checking everything was OK, I thought that was a nice touch.
The hotel is really close to a nice beach and there are good shops just up the road. There's a local bus that takes you around Playa Blanca (we took the number 30 to the Lanzasur hotel where there's a great water park) and you can walk to the Rubicon Marina where they have a market day on Tuesday and Saturday. The local supermarket opposite the back of the hotel is a bit pricey, worth walking a little further up the road to find cheaper produce.
Overall, we had a lovely holiday, in a good hotel.
