Overall we had a lovely holiday and there were parts of it that were really good and parts less so. Staff- in the main, fantastic apart from two grumpy ones! Those who were particularly good - Magdalena on reception and Kirsten on the bar - so lovely and helpful. The lady who checked us in was also great but did not catch her name. Plenty for kids if they choose - entertainment staff always very encouraging. Rooms lovely and spacious although a bit tired - could do with some maintenance. Our room overlooked wasteland so not very appealing, with no incentive to sit outside. Please check your windows. Our maid kept leaving them open. Pool area was nice - large pool (temperature perfect!). However, maintenance required. Several cracked and loose tiles and very few sun beds that weren't broken. Food - reasonable quality and reasonable selection although could be hotter. Presentation could be better - most things were held in big stainless steel dishes which didn't make that particularly appealing. Desserts identical every day (how about cheese and crackers as well?). Salad dishes in the evening were the best eg tuna pasta salad, fresh prawns etc. Pool bar was good when it was open at night but that didn't always happen. Inside bar dark and unappealing.
Resort - it was pleasant enough but full of half finished buildings/resorts/pavements which I guess is a reflection on the problems with the economy. The walk along to the marina was lovely.
To summarise, I would rate this as a 3 star hotel, not a 4. If money was spent on improved maintenance and better selection/presentation of food then it would quickly move to a 4 star in my opinion.
