At first I was unsure whether I would like this hotel as it was very large (about 900 rooms), but I came to really enjoy it. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the service to them very good. Our room needed a plumber, and he arrived within about 10 minutes of the request. The main building was extremely attractive with water features and plenty of space . Lots of different areas for seating. The only time it got rather noisy was after the show time in the evening .I will say that this is a family hotel, but any children that I came across were well behaved. On saying that, we avoided the activity pool and went to the quiet pool.
The six bookable restaurants were exceptionally good, I really looked forward to eating in these. The buffet had a really good choice of food, so there is always something to suit
The staff are very friendly and obliging, . A little patience is sometimes needed at the bars when they are very busy.
The shows in the evening are well worth seeing, there are some really good themes.
The beach was lovely, and plenty of shade. The sea was very warm if a little rough at times .
There was plenty of live music enjoy, and sandwiches, cake and champagne (or cava) at 5.oo pm in the lobby bar every day. A very nice touch.
All in all it is a very good hotel. I would go again given the chance.
We travelled with Thomas Cook, and we were given our room keys on the transfer coach, so that we could go straight to our rooms on arrival, only we could not find ours. One of the Management came to our rescue and explained that the first two numbers are the block that that the room is in, and the last two are the actual room.
