If you've done a few of these and are looking for a good value yet high quality all-inclusive mediterranean family holiday then this place will be ideal for you. Big clean comfortable rooms, good choice of food, friendly staff and a sandy beach all at a price that still knocks spots of other Med destinations.
However, this place most definitely does typify the European mass market holiday and I think it only fair to set the expectations for those who may look at the five star rating and expect something more discerning. Some examples: the main self-serve restaurant can resemble a scrum at busy times; the daily early morning battle for poolside sunbeds is as frustrating as it is unecessary; the beach is a mass of permanent shades and sunbeds rather than the idyllic open vista you might expect; and the whole experience is punctuated by a soundrack of trashy Euro disco. No different from similar destinations of course but those looking for tranquility or true five star quality should probably look elsewhere.
Wi-fi is available in public areas but the service was poor and with little or no internet access in the bedrooms this alone is a serious question mark against any hotel advertising five star facilities IMO.
To end on a positive note however, I'm sure that families wanting a big, brash and fully catered sunshine holiday but with a bit more class will love this place.
