We went there indepedently ie not MW customers. What amazed me most was the friendliness and professionalism of the personnel who did their best to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. Excellent animation team, gym program (aqua gym and yoga) and kids' club. Viva salon is also available for all customers and is reasonable priced (for UK standards).
The room was in very good condition and was cleaned every day. Breakfast was rich and dinner was very good and varied. Kids' dinner (or tea) at 5.15pm was a very good alternative for kids, with options suited more to...smaller hands and demanding mouths!
The resort was very busy however, due to its size, we never felt it was overcrowded. What we also found easy was the car rental; we rented the car for a few days and drove around the island. It's a pity to miss the island's rich history!
Two things annoyed me a bit;
a) the wifi provided. Although the fact that it's only available at the reception area is a pretty good excuse to abstain from regularly checking work emails, the connection was very slow and sometimes pretty frustrating. The hotel should look into better alternatives.
b) a somewhat 'unwritten law' that sunbeds can be reserved by just placing your towel on them and leave (both at the pool area and lately at the beach). On many occasions we encountered an almost empty pool area (at lunchtime) and not a single sunbed available which can be annoying to say the least. Unless somebody pays for the sunbeds this tactic should not be encouraged and the hotel could better emphasise this.
Overall, it's been a very good family holiday. If I can, I will return next year and also suggest the resort to friends with kids.
