Just back from 2 weeks. Room was adequate - only for changing and sleeping really. Spent all day outdoors and evenings in the bar area. Beds are not comfy and needed to do the stretching & yoga in the mornings! Very creaky beds so every time you turn over it wakens whoever else is in the room. There were a...

We came home yesterday and I've just looked at the reviews for the first time and I cannot understand those who have been critical about this hotel. My husband, daughter and myself had a really lovely time and thought that the staff were excellent. The food was so good that we've all put on nearly half a stone after our...

I've been in this hotel for two nights, because my girlfriend had booked there. I can only say that the staff is ok, kind and helps where they can, but some things should be adjusted. The food is better than no comment because I would be too bad. As the location is quiet, but far from the beach. I do...

Lovely large pool area and plenty of sunbeds. The dining room gets very crowded at times. Food average but could always find something to eat. The evening entertainment area is fairly small for the size of the complex and has the only bar. Seating is not adequate to allow everyone to see the shows. Perhaps when the weather is warmer...

Just returned from a nice relaxing holiday at this hotel. The grounds are very well kept as is the pool area, in fact the whole place is very clean and tidy. The staff work very hard, always with a smile on their face and always polite and friendly. They seem to make a fuss and genuinely like the little children....

Holiday was 17th - 24th March 2014 Arrived at the hotel where the male reception member looked after my suitcase and sorted out the paperwork and directed me to the dining room as he was wary that it was about to close the lunch service which I thought was very god of him.
