My husband, along with my brother and sister in law and I have just got back on 29th Oct.The rooms were very clean and well maintained only thing I did miss was tea making facilities however I did not really expect it as hotels in Europe very rarely have this so was no big deal brought some Tetley T bags from the nearby Supermarket and took them into the restaurant for breakfast . The restaurant was nice and clean and with a huge variety of food for breakfast,dinner and the evening meal. If you went hungry it would be your own fault. The staff were very friendly sometimes a few could be difficult to make yourself understood but hey ho if you go to a country where English is not a second or third language then you take a phase book or just treat it all as a holiday experience and laugh about it. The service was excellent in all area's. The only down fall we found was the rudeness of some of the German guests that seem to holiday in this area, not only were they rude to the staff but to other guests in the hotel, very few please and thank you's. However majority were very pleasant. Sue the rep was excellent always ready to help with anything you wanted to know about. The evening entertainment for adults was ok but to be fair you can't please everyone and you don't have to stay and watch it Sitting outside in the warm evenings with a drink and a natter was great. Only a 10 min taxi ride to the nearest town Jandia and a min walk out the back of the hotel to a fantastic beach. Great time had by all.More

In April we said we WILL return and, 6 months later, we did...........!
We went in April this year and enjoyed it so much we said on here we'd go again - lo & behold, here we are in October and we HAVE been again!
It was almost as enjoyable an experience and we'd still thoroughly recommend the hotel, the downsides were:
* the restaurant nearest the beach was closed for a complete refurb - these things have to be done at some stage so that was just unfortunate for us this second time
* the lunch replacement location (pizzeria) was not as good as the beach restaurant (however, we didn't realise that the full restaurant was also open - so that was our fault)
* the evening entertainment provided by the 'animation' team was again poor (dancing whilst miming to show songs)
Other than that, a first class holiday location with glorious weather and at a competitive price - what's not to like?More

One to avoid
On arrival we were first to reception but it too an hour to check in then a further 2 hours for our luggage to appear in our rooms. The rooms were nice and good maid service but that's where it stops. The main restaurant was under staffed and we had to clear our own table between courses for dinner a waiter would take our drinks order fairly quick but that would be the last we see of them. The pool restaurant our rep said to avoid eating in that one for lunch the salad, rolls and cakes were put out in the open no covers at all and were covered in flies the hot food burgers, hotdogs etc were under Bad fitting plastic lids those too had flies all over them as did the fruit the tables were cleared quickly and the drinks area was kept clean. The main bar staff were really rude and made you feel like you were putting them out by ordering a drink they also pretended not to understand what you were ordering my dad tried to order a creme de menthe in the entertainment bar it took 3 people to try to get the bar tender to understand then he produced a pot of lemon tea with milk and sugar??? Pool floors were kept fairly clean but the tables and sunbeds were'nt cleaned or wiped down the whole time we were there the tables were filthy. The drink were very poor quality I love red wine but it was very acidic I couldn't drink it. Very hilly my parents who are retired struggled walking around.More
As I said in the title, our 2nd visit. We don't often go back a 2nd time to anywhere but we are already thinking about our 3rd visit. We are not the only ones who return as we recognised a few people from last year.
The holiday rep was fantastic. You know who I mean Sue! Friendly, informative and welcoming. The reception staff- well I am impressed and envious of their linguistic skills, I just wish I could express myself in so many languages as they do.
Being an optimistic vegetarian I hope to be able to find something to eat other than salad, I wasn't disappointed. It might have only been pasta but it was REALLY NICE pasta.
The nudist beach takes some getting used to but by the end of 2 weeks it's was hardly causing a blink of the eye.
The hotel is very clean, the food plentiful (although I do prefer it quite a bit hotter), the staff very helpful and friendly and the entertainment is entertaining - Jambo Jambo are amazing!!!
Love it. Hope you do too.More

We booked two twin rooms for ourselves and two friends and when we arrived we had a family room for the four of us with two adults expected to sleep on a bed setee for a week! We went to reception which was a long way away and were told that the hotel was full and we would have to stay in it until they could sort it out as there was no management available even though it was only 10.30pm. We refused to accept this and were then told the only alternative was to go to their sister hotel next door Hotel CLub Jandia PRincess which we did.(apparently they do this quite often so they obviously make quite a few mistakes!On arrival there we were shown to two rooms which were pretty basic and during the night water came through the airconditioning unit staining the ceiling walls and running into the light switch which was very dangerous.we contacted reception and they sent someone to sort it next day and although we asked for the room to be smartened up it was a mess for the whole week.I tried ringing the thomson hotline number several times as the rep was not available but no one answered the phone and no one replied to my text.I went to see the rep the next day Suzanne PLayer who could not have cared less and was too busy to talk to me and suggested Icame back later. By this time I had had enough so did not return!I would not return or recommend either of these hotels to anyone!More
