To start the rooms at this hotel are good, clean and tidy.
The staff are polite although there is a lack of them at the bars there is only ever 1 member of staff and you tend to have to wait every time you want refreshments.
The food what can i say its poor repetitive over cooked re-used from previous sittings, if you like chips you will be ok. The breakfast cereal milk was warm! the toasters worked poorly and you spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to make a decent piece of toast, You could predict what was coming out for dinner by what was left over at lunch time, salads and cold meats that had been sitting in the unbearably warm dinning room for 3 hours were bought back out in the evening ! meats from lunch time we often used as so called stew or a rice dish in the evening we ended up eating out most nights and spent a fortune, i don't mind eating out by choice to experience the local fayre but to be forced to due the quality is not on especially as you pay a fair bit extra for the all inclusive.
The whole property constantly has a smell of raw sewage from the irrigation system there are piles of smelling foaming mucus in the flower beds that turns the stomach i can only presume they use the water from the toilet waste to water there plants, if you slept with the window open you woke up thinking you had fallen asleep in the local public toilets it was disgraceful.
There is a spanish bar advertised in the brochure did not open once in the time we were there and even the local rep who has been there 7 months has never seen it open !
The day time entertainment staff however could not be faulted they done a very good job and were great with the kids and adults alike. The evenings however are a different experience all together it is bad bad bad. the kids part does not start until 830 -9pm and is the same thing for a hour every night. The so called adult entertainment is a shambles. You basically have to leave the hotel in the evening to get some sensible entertainment activity therefore not realising the all inclusive element of the package prehaps this is there plan.
if you could stay at this property room only then it would not be to bad, if you go all inclusive be prepared to spend a lot of additional money to ensure you enjoy your holiday
Do not let this put you of going to the resort of playa blance it is very nice indeed and we will be going back to the resort just dont stay here.
ps we went to the paradise island property a couple of times as this is the sister hotel and you can use there facilities free of charge dont bother its just as bad, the water park is ok but not anywhere near as good as the adverts read a couple of hours entertainment at the most.
