Just got back from the Caretta Beach hotel after a weeks stay (5th-13th Aug)with my husband and 2 sons (14 & 11). I can honestly say that we had a lovely relaxing time!
The staff were polite and friendly and always made you feel welcome !
The restaurant- The food was good there was always a wide variety of salads, meats , potatoes etc...even for those who are fussy! Any one who has been on All inclusive holidays will know that yes it can become a bit repetitive and people should not complain about the fact that yes the pork fillets may then reappear the next day as stroganoff as isn't that what you would do at home instead of wasting food? The desserts were amazing too.
We stayed in F block in a lovely large room, it was kept clean floor moped and swept daily, towels changed every other day you only had to ask the maid if you needed anything such as an extra pillow/ sheet etc. yes we heard the mentioned cockerel and the dog but they were not a nuisance and I feel that giving a bad review because of these things is ludicrous ( do these people live in some kind of a bubble?)
The water park - You could always find a subbed no matter what time you decided to go, the Life Guards were very attentive which was reassuring and the slides were good, the Lazy river was very relaxing!
All in all it was an enjoyable holiday, we didn't do any of the organised trips, or use the kids club but those who did said they had enjoyed them! The entertainment was ok - if you go with a realistic expectation then you will have a lovely time!
