Location of this hotel near the Tropical Centre which was ideal place to visit for shopping and entertainment. Staff at hotel very helpful and everywhere spotless. Was a bit surprised no hairdryer provided in the room though. Lots of bars etc to visit around the hotel so plenty of choice.

Two pools and a kiddies pool plus several small hot pools. Pool area itself good but can be a bit crowded later on. Kept very clean throughout and...

The pool area is spacious but decking chairs are worn out and uncomfortable, which is a shame because the pool itself is good. Rooms are tired and furniture in need of urgent refurbishing. Breakfast had many options although the coffee machine is awful, it only dispenses black tasteless coffee. Juice station is also a miss with concentrate juice. Luckily I...

I stayed at this hotel at the end of April for a week with my partner, we had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the hotel. The pool area is lovely, nice and clean good sunbeds but only downfall is you need to be up and pretty much queuing at the entrance to the pool area to get a decent sunbed!...
