Flight: my fiancée and I travelled with our 1 year old, as standard leg room on the outgoing flight was poor and we struggled at times with the little one, on return flight however the staff very kindly moved us to a free row of three seats which was really helpful.
Transfers: don't book coach transfers, 11 euro door to door with very helpful taxi drivers on both journeys
Rooms: 1 bed apt was really spacious, would recommend ground floor as terrace is bigger than 1st floor balcony, cleaning service was excellent, we dropped a bottle of wine on first night and it was cleaned for us within 10 mins, previous reviews had mentioned problems with cock roaches, didn't see one in our apartment or any other bugs, use the bins outside the apartments as we did and you should be ok, wifi available for 25 euro for week which is less than O2 data roaming fees so well advised, fans available for hire for 35 euro for week but we didn't bother and were fine, decor could have been a bit newer but can't fault the apartment as a whole.
Food: don't go all inclusive, the food in the dining area is by all means edible and the first few days were fine but you will tire of it very quickly as very repititive, plus there are far too many good restaurants within walking distance at reasonable prices, Gambrinus next door is a must!, service, food and atmosphere all amazing, Hong Kong 2 opposite the Barcelo hotel is a must for chinese lovers, again staff were amazing especially with our little one.
Location: your about 5 mins from nearest shops but venture further with lots more about 10 mins away, beach is nice and is about 15 mins walk, we found another beach on the last day with a man made cove which would have been ideal for us, you'll find this in front of the shopping centre about 30 mins walk from the Broncemar, once you see the beach bar about 100 meters off the coast with a bridge for access you'll see the beach.
Facilities: pool was good the first few days but n closer inspection was a wee bit dirty, didn't stop me taking my n in though so don't be put off, shop on site which sells cow and gate baby milk, pampers and baby food, you will find more options in town, shop sells rodilinck ciders too which was a nice touch.
Weather: we went late aug sept and weather was ideal for me, never hotter than a really nice day in uk which was good for baby and me as not a sun worshiper, don't be proud, wear sun tan lotion, you will burn, you have been warned!
Entertainment: looked great for kids but our boy was too young for it all, the tavern pub was the place too be for me with all inclusive drink and karaoke until 11, Alberto who runs the karaoke is a great guy and really good with the kids but appreciates adult singers more so get up there mums and dads!!!
Resort: Beautiful resort and would definitely go back
Money: we took 550 euros and had to lift another 200 as we decided to start eating out
Overall: fantastic first family holiday, slightly over priced by Thomas Cook but that's package holidays for you, any one booked or thing of going shoud be very excited and we would definitely recommend
