Wasn't sure what to expect as this was our first visit... And we were not disappointed! The hotel was idyllic, lovely rooms, cleaned daily and excellent wifi wherever you went including the poolside. The food was in the main of a good standard. Breakfast had everything, eggs - scrambled, fried, poached, boiled and an omelette. If this isn't good enough stay home!
We tried the a la carte dining and although it was good we preferred the buffet evening meal with the choices available. There was no barging but when busy you were required to queue which again wasn't a major problem because people were waiting for their fresh cooked meat/fish. Tell the chefs how you want it done and they will give you exactly what you want no fuss.
We went all inclusive, the spirits were good but the free wine choice wasn't extensive and you were expected to pay a supplement for cocktails like mojitos. The room mini bar was well stocked but despite being all inclusive you had to pay which was a shocker.
Several pools but still very cold at the moment and I was one of maybe 5 to brave the water. Once they warm up they would be ideal.
My partner found the wind too much so you should pack a light coat for the lovely 10 min stroll to the marina where there are designer shops (men beware) several restaurants, bars and a supermarket to stock up on supplies (to have your own mini bar!)
We hired a car for the day at the hotel, reasonably priced and saw the main sights in a day. Staff very friendly and helpful especially those at the pool bar.
Overall a great hotel, probably a 4/4.5* rather than the 5 they claim. The slight negatives are certainly overcome by the hotel's good points and I would certainly recommend it and would definitely return.
