An hotel for why so many children here?

The bedroom is beautiful with a gorgeous view. Food excellent. The staff are impeccable in their service and attention. The pool is incredibly clean and well set out/Uncrowded despite being very busy. The hotel advertises itself as being for adults, or children aged over 15. We chose it for that very reason because we wanted some peaceful adult time away from our own family. In fact it isn't possible to book rooms for children when booking with the hotel. We weren't told however that the hotel group has a holiday club whose members can book to stay here with their families. So our peace and quiet is disrupted by children shrieking in the pool and racing round the bar in the evening. Not what we had hoped for or expected. It is a shame because this is spoiling what would be a wonderful hotel. The children are not badly behaved; just doing what children do whilst on holiday. We just didn't want to be around this on our holiday.More

Nicely Situated

We booked half-board and stayed there in July for 2 weeks. Having visited before in 2012 and enjoyed our stay we thought we would make a return visit to the same hotel again as we still had a lot of the island to see. Our room was on the 2nd floor and our balcony overlooked part of the garden area and the sea was obscured by the palm trees. Our room was excellent, recently refurbished, aircon very quiet so could get a good nights sleep. The only complaint would be that our room was frequently not cleaned until after 1.30 pm. The hotel was not exceptionally busy which was nice, we were always able to get a sun lounge by the pool in the afternoons. Breakfast had a good selection of food and the Buffet in the evenings were excellent, no long queues of people. We would order drinks with our meal and sometimes the waiters did not speak a lot of English so mistakes were made. We were charging drinks to the room and at the end of our stay when we went to pay our bill it was a lot more than what we had expected. My wife used to keep a note of drinks we had booked to our room. On having a quick look through the bill we noticed that there was an extra bottle of wine added and we had that deducted from the total. Although we had the same named bottle of red wine each time, there seemed to be different prices for it. On returning home going through the bill again realised that we had paid 30 euros extra for drinks we hadn't had. Pay as you go would be a good tip. The evening entertainment could have been better. The hotel is ideally situated for the shops and restaurants and also the beach. The hotel also had a lovely little shop selling good quality ceramics etc. Staff were helpful and polite. The Spar Supermarkets were excellent and cheaper than a lot of other food shops in the area.More

Nice holiday, hope to return soon

One of those rare occasions when the photos do not do it justice. Beautiful hotel, nice beachfront location, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Good clean rooms, excellent service and stunning decor, the indoor gardens and artworks really added to the atmosphere.The food was excellent, and looked just like the photos, with amazing choice, well presented. The pool was beautiful with palm trees and rockery, with great views of the bay. We used the gym most days, level with the beach, it had beautiful views through the floor to ceiling windows.Housekeeping was really good, our room was always spotlessly clean. All the staff were hardworking and friendly. One of the staff in particular, Rocio, went out of her way to help us when we had a problem. Unable to get a good Wifi signal in the room. The hotel is looking a little bit tired, though, with the odd cracked marble on the floor and seventies wardrobes, but a minor comment on a fantastic holiday.More

Phillip H,

Not what it seems

We booked an All Inclusive Adults only holiday. This was not what we had! There was no drink for cool flannel upon arrival as stated There was nothing in the brochure about men having to wear long trousers therefore , we had to spend 59 euros before we could eat in the dining room. If you arrive before 2pm you cannot have your room - tough luck if you have been up travelling all night! All inclusive does not include the Grill, the beach bar, the nice canopied sun beds, anything that has to be replaced in the mini bar, lollies at the pool bar, the Italian restaurant. There were hordes of children - loud noisy and rude! The rep does not turn up for welcome meetings therefore we were not fully informed. The new rep Gareth was made aware of our concerns - we have been home a week and I am still waiting for a report from him as promised. The room definitely us not 5star - shabby bathroom with cracked tiles and a hair drier that did not work. Food in the restaurant was ok but very dried up and the same was out for breakfast lunch and evening meal. On the return flight we were asked to fill in a questionnaire however, these were never collected. If you are looking to get in the sea you won't be able to due to the rocks, we were aware if this so not an issue. Most of the staff are helpful and polite and the hotel was clean. Easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants.More
