Ok place. All other than buffer restaurant were closed. If you want basic all inclusive with British people who wants party it's your place. Good location. Cleaning could have been better.

Lovely clean hotel

Pros: Cleanliness, huge spacious hotel. Staff friendly and the food was great
Cons: Wifi. It is 12 euro for each device, but don't bother buying it as it was terrible.
Location: Beach couple of mins taxi ride away. Beach club pool complex was just over the road. Dolphin boat trip & cable car trips nearby were both great.
The hotel is huge and impressively designed. The staff are friendly and the hotel is spotless. Rooms were cleaned everyday to a very high standard. The pool area was also clean. Hard to get a sun bed at times because of the sad people putting their towels out early, but I believe the hotel are trying to stop this. Loads of entertainment for the kids. All in all very impressed and would go there again. Only down point was the terrible wifi.

Fantastic All Inclusive

The hotel and staff were excellent - located in a beautiful resort. The food was superb at all times throughout the day - the pools were beautiful, the staff excellent. I had paid for Wi-Fi but the connection was terrible - so they refunded my money without any problem. All in all I would highly recommend this beautiful resort.

Best holiday yet for family

If you have kids, this hotel has everything you could need. It absolutely ticks all the boxes. Even wi-fi in the rooms for £12 a week. Food varied and very good, not too frenetic restaurant, pools fabulous, beach club perfect for toddlers right up to grandads.All rooms are suites with separate bath and walk in showers, two basins. Staff very helpful indeed.

The rooms need renovation. There are holes in the curtains, the sheets are old and have a lot of stains. Almost everything is a little broken. Some animals that look like ants in the room. Food was good, superviced playroom for kids was excellent.
