Lovely hotel, nice food but the only downfall was not being able to get a sunbed, people queing up early morning to put their towels on them. Pool areas not big enough for the capacity of people in the hotel. But overall good time there.

Had a lovely room on top floor, overlooking the quieter pool. No fridge but there were machines in hotel for water and cold drinks. Hotel was spotlessly clean, but pool areas weren't big enough for size of hotel so getting a sunbed could be a bit of a problem. Location was good with taxis right outside. About a 10 minute walk to beach, shops and bars all within walking distance. Good choice of food and an excellent snack bar service for in between main meals. Restaurant tends to get very busy between 7.30pm and 8.30pm. But as there were only 2 of us we didn't have a problem getting a table, but queues could be a bit long. We stayed from 27th June - 7th July 2016.

Huge hotel with facilities that can't quite cope when full (e.g. insufficient seating in dining hall, insufficient space around pools and queues in general). Well run hotel, staff polite and efficient, rooms adequate, good location, well kept and clean. Reasonable variety of food for the all inclusive. I've been here before when it was less busy and there is quite a difference.

Great pool, very clean and good variety of food. I had my first experience of a Thai massage at the centre beside the hotel pool and it was excellent.

The hotel is very big and you have to be at the pool at 8 to get near the pool or 9 for any other place. The food was varied but repeated a couple of times a week. My son lived on chips and hotdogs for a fortnight but there was spaghetti, chicken, fish. The salads were to die for. The sangria was lovely and so was the beer, the drinks were very strong.

You can chose 2 pools to sit at one is quiet and one is loud with music entertainment etc. There were also lots of pool tables and ping pong tables scattered around and 1 ice hockey table. Note: there is no air conditioning at this hotel. This may not be a problem in winter months but we went in August and had to hire a fan. The staff were very polite and helpful and if you are on a late checkout a hotel room is provided for you to book in half hour blocks to get changed and showered, and they provide towels.

A very clean and well kept hotel. Good food and good service, the animation team were excellent too. Pool area was brilliant and was nice to get a sun bed at any time of the day. Could not fault the hotel at all, would recommend to anyone and will be coming back again.

Great hotel and excellent entertainment. Only downside is we went all inclusive and have to say the variety of food is not good so we ate out a couple of times but apart from that we had a very enjoyable stay.

The rooms were comfortable and clean, although only single beds were provided. The staff were helpful and polite. The hotel could be called a hotel run by Ryan Air, as they charged extra for everything. Extra for safe, kettle 14 euro per week, towels 5 euro for hire and 1 euro for changing, small fridge 5 euro per day, WiFi 2 euro per day but did not work etc etc. Most of these are standard in 3 star hotels in UK. The food was plentiful but monotonous, though for dinner usually there was one stew and rice dish that were OK. Orange juice at breakfast was squash, unless you paid 3 euro per glass. If I went again I would go bed and breakfast only.
The entertainers worked very hard and were liked by the children. The pools were good as there were good safe pools for children. The all inclusive alcohol was palatable but not special.

It was the first time in an all inclusive and was excellent value for money. Food was of a good quality but we bought our own wine as the ones on tap were pretty poor. Maid service could not have been better. Our only complaint would be Willie who was one of the animators; he was rude, loud and inappropriate. By far the weakest link.

Lovely clean hotel. Great outdoor pool areas. Food was good, sometimes busy but good quality food and a wide variety. Went as a family with two small children. We had a great time.

Beverages are the cheap drinks if you want branded labels like Barcadi, Malibu, Lagers you have to pay extra.

Food good, but hotel looked to be at capacity during our stay, which made for some queues at meal times and inadequate sun beds round the pool. Clean and reasonable hotel, if a little tired looking.
