“Best kids club and friendliest personnel ever seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

As a family with small children we have visited many luxury resorts around Europe. Among all of those Hillside Beach club scores the 1st place what comes to the kids club and especially to the friendliness of personnel.

Facilities at kids club are excellent and daily program includes lots of activities to keep the small ones happy. However, the real differentiator is the friendliness of personnel. Charlie and his team are amazing!

It is also great that even if your children do not sign up for club activities they are still allowed to visit the facilities and enjoy toys there. So, if your children do not happen to speak same language as personnel (who are fluent in many different languages) or they do not survive without own mom/dad/babysitter you can still enter into this kids club without problem. In the evenings there was even mini disco available for those who like dancing.

Food at Beach club is fantastic - both what comes to the quality and variety of the food.

Environment is beatiful and water crystal clear.

Rooms are otherwise ok but it can be noisy inside.

In the evenings there is different kinds of shows organised at amphitheater and those shows start after 9pm. Music was played at very high volume so if your room is close to amphitheater it is guaranteed that you cannot sleep before the show ends if you are insomniac person or if your children are not used to sleep in noisy environment. For us it was a bit difficult to understand why music had to be so loud. In our case this problem was solved after we relocated to a new room which was further away from the center of evening activities. This evening noise was the only minus we found in this hotel which otherwise was a great resort and definately excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Recommend rooms which are further away from amphitheater.

Spent 2 weeks here with my family (wife, children aged 9 & 7). We have spent the last few years at various family related resorts around the world so have a pretty good idea of what constitutes the perfect family resort. To start with the negatives: can be noisy both during the day when there is always music playing (there are 2 great beaches tucked away in quiet areas but these are adult only so difficult to get peace and quiet!). In the evening, there is a party night 2/3 nights per week where the music is very loud. After the first night we asked to be moved as it was like having the DJ playing on your balcony! having said that, the music has a hard stop of midnight, but again not great if you have a young family that are light sleepers! Limited choice of restaurants. Main self service buffet and two other a la carte restaurants but one of these is adult only. For a 2 week stay this can be limiting. You have the option of going into the local town for a meal but then having paid for full board plus at the Hillside, many people won't feel happy about forking out money just to have a bit more choice. Also, beach / pool can get very busy and the usual situation that you have to get up pretty early to 'reserve' your deck chairs for the day. It is also very hilly with many steep steps, great for building super human calves / glutes, not so great with young children or the elderly.
So, having got the negatives out of the way, the positives are: very clean, staff are helpful / enthusiastic; service is great; scenery is second to none; great facilities : great watersports; brilliant dive school; great gym, good tennis courts etc. water is crystal clear; spa is excellent; food is of a high standard (even the buffet is of a high standard: clean, fresh, massive choice etc). Entertainment every night in the amphitheatre which is of a very high standard. whatever the entertainments team get paid , its not enough - they are very, very good. Accommodation (we stayed in a family suite) was very good - very clean, with great facilities.

Overall, we had a great time here. We would certainly consider returning to Hillside as it is better than many places we have been to. To be perfect however, it would need to address the noise issue; introduce a couple more dining options, perhaps another swimming pool (with slides for slightly older children - they have slides for very young children).

I know, that my title sounds exaggerated, however after my third time in this club and many other affirmations by friends and many other bad experiences with other such clubs I allowed myself this phrase. Once again it proves that you have to pay a bit more I you want better quality in service, cleanness and food. And if you are also making only 5 days a year a seaside holidays, satisfaction is guaranteed. Congratulations to the team and the management, because I m sure there has to be strict discipline behind this perfectness. Especially for families with small kids or even babies this place is a dream ! Imagine, it has a baby buffet !
