Just got back from 2 weeks at this hotel and would definitley recommend it.
The rooms have a lounge with a sofa bed, small kitchenette, spacious bathroom and separate bedroom with 2 single beds. Originally we planned on putting our 2 children in the bedroom so that we could put them to bed and then use the lounge ourselves. The sofa beds are small though and husband (who is just 6ft) could not actually fit on them so this plan was scrapped. We ended up putting kids to bed at about 9:30pm then sitting on patio after getting drinks from the bar - this worked fine for us. Did not use the kitchen apart from storing chocolate and water in the fridge. Our shower was broken when we arrived - told reception and it was repaired within 30 minutes. Only problem with rooms was the heat - no air conditioning - you can hire fans at reception and mosquitos! We were very bitten despite using the screen on window and door. You can buy an electic repellant at the supermarket on site - take plenty of your own though!
The hotel does not supply beach/pool towels but you can hire them for a deposit of 10 euros each which is returned to you when you hand them back - there are also no safe deposit boxes in rooms - these are located in reception and you have to pay to hire them.
Pool and water park were fantastic - my 4 year olds were happy in either - pool a little chilly when you first go in but always clean - no bugs or nasties floating. There is a man who cleans up all day around the pool - always able to get a sunbed or parasol.
Food is typical all inclusive food - lots of repition, although they do try with theme nights. It was not the best food we have ever had but it didn't posion us, we always managed to eat something and it was always hot and plentiful.
Animation team were fantastic - our 4 year olds loved the mini club and mini disco at night. They did treasure hints, pirate days and even took them to the water park - they run 2 session - 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon and ours asked to go to both. The evening entertainment was good - there were professional shows - reptile, parrots etc and the animation team also put on shows - All aimed at familes so if you are a young couple then you may hate it but for us it was perfect. The shows were all in english - 95% of the guests were english so language was no problem.
We didnt go on any excursions offered by First Choice - thought they were expensive. We walked into playa blanca - the rep said it was a 45 mintue walk - in reality its 15 mins at most, even with 4 year olds. At the harbour we caught a boat across to Furventura for the day - 21 euros for each adult and children 4 and under free. Playa blanca itself is a nice resort for a wander round and there are some nice shops and restaurants.
Would return here for the kids clubs alone - definitley one for families and in my view the food is not deserving of the negatives - there are only so many things they can cook!
