We arrived the last Saturday of July and stayed for a fortnight.There is no point in writing about the foyer. It is stunning (as has already been mentioned). We (Father 47, Mother 46 and Son 12) arrived at 10.30pm. The Reception staff engaged positively with us and we reminisced about Northern Ireland's famous victories over Spain! Although the restaurant was closed there were (more than ample) salads left for us. The room was absolutely grand and was cleaned daily. The pools are functional: youngsters enjoy them, adults cool their core temperature. The Kids' Club was well-organised as were the adult competitions. The French reps did not exclude anybody, by the way. A nice feature is the Awards Ceremony in the evening for the winners of the various daily competitions. (Well Done James for winning the mini-golf). The Piano Bar's musicians are to be commended.
The hotel is situated on a small seafront. The beach is close by but we chose not to partake, except for strolls. The clientele were pan-European. The entertainment nightly was variable; the live music is preferable to the reps dancing and I, personally, have a problem with animal acts. The food was varied and of a consistently high standard. If you treat the bar and waiting staff right, they will treat you right. Think of your own local. Would you want to be served by some of its staff on holiday?
David needs special mention. He was a star. ¿cómo estás "IRLANDA DEL NORTE!"
All in all a most relaxing time and a hotel that I would recommend wholeheartedly.
