Reluctant to write my review as it’s not the best but after trawling trip advisor myself reading reviews to help decide where to book our summer holiday this year I feel I owe it to other family’s to review our last years summer holiday here. So it’s defiantly a 3 star…and in some areas that’s generous. Booked a junior suite (requested ground floor) with sea view , arrived at our room and was a very partial sea view, with a block of apartments in front of us so between the gaps between buildings we could see the sea. Balcony was spacious but, was filthy with bird droppings, leaves, twigs, woodlouse… oh the woodlouse(s) and remained that way throughout our holiday despite asking the cleaners and reception several times to clean our balcony. Not ideal when we had a 22 month old wanting to play out there, stepping in droppings! Room was cleaned daily…I mean cleaners entered everyday some days I think they just made the bed. We had a constant invasion of woodlouse in the living area, bedroom and bathroom. We told reception and they said it couldn’t really be helped due to all the trees that surrounds the apartment block we was in, but they would come and deep clean the room. This deep clean never happened. On day five of our holiday there was a bad storm , very heavy rain and strong winds, a large branch off one of the trees came down right outside of our apartment, literally 5 seconds before our son was stood right where it came down. We reported this to reception who said the hotel manager will be in contact for us to move rooms… this never happened. The next day we did ask to move rooms and they only had one available which was actually over the road and not a ground floor so up a set of stairs right at the end of the block closest to beach and was immaculate and smelt clean with sea/beach views but due to having the pushchair it was just to much to be carrying it up and down daily. We booked all inclusive The buffet restaurant was like a canteen , tables very close together. Food was good, and hot but repetitive. Not all restaurants were open during our stay. We mainly used the splash pool which our son loved. The sun beds were covered with bird droppings again and cups left laying about the pool side for days on end. The snack bar at the splash pool served cookies and cheese sandwich’s for snacks (half a sandwich) and a small selection of ice creams. Again not ideal with a 22 month old long walk to restaurant for proper food. Overall we had a good holiday, but wouldn’t return , if I did I would request a first floor room. This hotel could potentially be a 4 star if there was more cleaners , better cleaning and better snacks /food selections , in my opinion.
I have just visited this hotel as part of an organised event. The hotel on first impressions, was well kept, clean and bright as too were the gardens on approach. Check in was smooth and our room clean and tidy with ample space. The food at breakfast was of a decent variety and by far the best meal service compared to the remainder of the day where by lunch and dinner were the same monotonous food offerings. There is only so much pasta with sauce, overcooked vegetables, one meat and one fish on offer and then usually a stew of some sort with a vegetable paella. There was always a salad and bread to fill yourself up on. The puddings were the same every day. That said, there was a huge variety of drinks, some branded. The tables were kept clean and drinks for self service available. There were plenty of sun loungers available around the pools (all 4 of them) but some needing a good clean! I didn't go in the pool as it was far too cold for me but the adult only area is large and spacious if you wanted a little quiet time away from children. On my last day however, I noticed that an item of clothing had disappeared from my wardrobe. I went to inform the hotel reception and not one hint of an apology, a simple 'that does not happen' The item of clothing was recently purchased (£90) and was in my wardrobe at 5.30pm and I had returned to my room by 10pm that night so in that window it had disappeared. I was asked if i had left the door open but this was not the case at all and my room mate checked the doors every time we went out. The hotel staff simply would not accept that this had happened and inferred that i was lying. This simply was not the case and i even offered for them to check my room themselves. I believe that they did but I did not hear anything from them and despite noticing me around the hotel for the day and put their head dow to avoid eye contact.. This obviously dampened my stay at the hotel. An apology would have gone a long way but to be accused myself was insulting!
What a wonderful hotel. I really cannot express how gorgeous this hotel is. Staff - so friendly, very accommodating even when my husband sprained his ankle playing football, they assisted & couldn’t help us more. Special thanks to the animación team - Allesandro, Eline & Rudi - you made our holiday. Bar staff - Alonso, Bilal, all great. Food - Variety of foods every day. Lots of choice & cooked well. Location - lots of ways to get to the beach via the hotel (lots of steps so not good if you have low mobility). A few shops at the side of the hotel & restaurants but not much choice so I would recommend going all inclusive or at least full board. Cleanliness & facilities - Great choices of pools, gyms, laundrette (cracking as I washed all my beach towels before I came home) Cleaners in everyday, fresh towels & bedding & so lovely when my little one had had a wee accident too. The down side to this holiday was the YogaFit people. We arrived on the Friday, music playing round the pool, crazy games around the pool with the animación team then again on Saturday. By the Sunday the Yoga people had swarmed in. I’m talking hundreds of people with their yoga mats walking around owning the hotel. They take over the full hotel too not just one area. Music had stopped around the pool, if you did any games with animación team it was away from the YogaFit as we couldn’t be noisy. They even take over the beach & made 2 young guys playing football move. They have music blaring early in the morning but we got told to be quiet when we had one late evening having fun drinking. We had evening entertainment outside the first 2 evenings then got moved inside as you guessed it - yoga fit people had their sessions. Food times began to get extremely busy. They were like locusts all cramming in the dining hall. All I would say is they must make a lot of money for the hotel as it spoiled a lot of families experiences but Yoga people come first. I would a million percent visit this place again but I will Google when the YogaFit people go (i think it’s 2 times a year) as I wouldn’t want to clash with their dates. We are also a little pee’d off that Jet2 or the hotel didn’t make this aware upon booking the holiday !!!
