Although this is a little late I thought whilst I have just booked to go again in September I should share my honeymoon stay. My Husband and I travelled on the 12/07/2012 and we stayed for 14 nights. Looking at previous reviews it now worries me that people are being put of this hotel when really if you don't go you will be missing out.
Firstly the hotel its self is stunning and clean, the staff can not do enough for you, from the moment you step in the place til the moment you leave.
The rooms are big and clean, yes they might not be the most moderns room but they have a TV hairdryer mini bar electric clock and a safe, for me this is plenty! I don't spend my hard earned money to check out the decor! The aircon is brilliant and the maids do a fantastic job.
The food is fantastic and for people to say the food gets repetative can only be eating the same food each night. If this hotel didn't change the food and it was the same everynight you could still each something different eash night for three weeks there is that much choice, the best part for me was the omelettes on a morning. A chef takes your order and makes them while you wait.
The pools are fantastic yes the swim up bar does get noisy but if your on holiday you spend it as you wish and some like to have a few drinks :) If you would prefer to have a quiet time there is a quiet pool at the side of the hotel.
The entertainment staff must run on batteries they have the energy of a durecel bunny and never stop. They start at 9am and finish once they have taken the guests out to a local club so it is pretty late 2am maybe. Only name I can remember is Junior but there are a host of people making your stay as enjoyable as they can.
All in all I would recomend this to any one couples familys and singles, it is a well rounded hotel and can't wait for september to come so I can be there again.
