We stayed just before Easter and were an extended family group. The hotel and grounds are first class , with a large and well organised pool area. The rooms are more than adequate and were spotlessly cleaned each day . Our daughter and family had an apartment and as they have three children , including a young baby , they were concerned about the space. They found the apartment to be perfect - especially as it had its own kitchen area with microwave and hob . The staff were incredibly helpful and always cheerful and friendly. Monica in the dining room adopted us and was lovely........as were all the waiters and waitresses.The entertainment team earned their money ten times over - working really hard and cheerfully with both children and adults throughout the day ....and often night as well . A few minor niggles .....at peak times the reception was very busy and you had to wait rather too long ( I know - go out of peak times !!....but you can't always choose when you need to go to reception ) The food was on the whole very good but it did get a bit repetitive - a common complaint in buffets. Finally if you are keen on a beach holiday I would look elsewhere - the beach is not good and seemed to be composed of stones and dirt rather than golden sand .
