I'm actually still on holiday in this hotel, writing this as I have a break from the heat. Arrived at around 9pm, weather was still in the 30s. Walked into the hotel and found it to be even hotter! I commented to the young man on reception and was sarcastically told "Well you are in Benidorm". We were given keys to a room on the 10th floor, we had asked for a low floor and were moved the following day after guests had checked out. Rooms are very nice, spotlessly clean, quite spacious and equipped with a fridge, wide screen TV, kettle and sofa (at least the one we're in is). Bathroom is a little bit cramped, but hardly anything to have a meltdown over. The restaurant on -1 is our preferred place to eat. This is only because you can get straight out of the lift and into it via the rear entrance, instead of climbing umpteen flights of stairs and queueing behind the Spanish (who get obvious preferential treatment from the staff and receptionists). Food is lovely, wide variety from English dishes to Spanish food, plus salads, cold meats, soup and lots of different kinds of bread (which is usually a bit stale but edible). Alas that is where the joy of the restaurants end. If you like sitting at cramped tables whilst you eat then you'll love it. There is also a never ending stream of children wandering around with wine glasses full of ice cream! They don't actually eat the ice cream, they just seem to like squirting it from the machine. There is an ice cream dispenser along with bowls filled up of various toppings (nuts, sprinkles, jellies) which unaccompanied children grab by the handful. Last night I watched a child of about 9 licking the remnant of his ice cream from the nozzle of the machine whilst his drip of a Mother filled herself another glass of beer and screamed at one of her other kids who was swinging his spaghetti around his head. You can also watch in disgust as little children climb on to a table, with wooden skewers in hand, to reach a chocolate fountain. Lumps of fruit, cake and anything else they can find are thrust into the chocolate, then discarded so they can do it all again. It was like watching a live version of The Hunger Games, but with awful children who just seem to be allowed to do whatever they want whilst their parents get drunk. The pool is as cramped as you can possibly get, and the fact that some planning genius thought it would be a good idea to place a snack bar at the back of it is hilarious. You literally have to climb over people on sunbeds to get into it. But if you fancy some quality entertainment, look out of your window about 8am and witness the hilarity of The Sunbed Stampede. The staff open the gates around the pool and grown men & women run like Usain Bolt to grab a bed. The other morning a man was hanging out of his window and commentating as if he was watching The Grand National. It's pathetic, but amusing at the same time. The bars are not too good. One staff serving when there is a queue of about 20 people is ridiculous. My son went to get a coke the other night and was sent away with a bottle of water because "We have no glasses left thank you". No glasses, in a bar, you couldn't make it up. Could possibly be because of the sheer amounts of kids running around and knocking drinks over, it's like a giant toddler group. All in all it's a nice hotel, but these reviews saying it's the best hotel and holiday of a lifetime are obviously very easily pleased. We've spent more time out and about, having to go down to Vincent's Corner Bars down the street and Uncle Ped's along the road because it's easier and less annoying than standing for 20 minutes to get a lager in the hotel. If we'd known this earlier we wouldn't have bothered paying for All Inclusive as it's been a bit of a waste. I personally wouldn't return to this hotel. I love kids, but having to endure the never ending screaming of tons of kids who are pretty much just doing what they want whilst their parents get pissed is a bit too much. the place feels a bit claustrophobic because you can't escape, except for the roof bar. Another worrying thing is the amount of small children who are allowed to use the lifts alone. My husband actually got out of a lift because a small girl of about 4 got in wearing nothing but bikini bottoms, surely that is something the staff need to be looking in to! Not a place for couples, or anybody who doesn't want to spend their holiday surrounded by wild kids.

This hotel is AMAZING!! It has an amazing safari feel to it as soon as you walk in. The rooms are beautiful and so so clean. The room has everything you could need including 5 British tv channels on the tv!! We thought we would miss a room with a balcony but we didn't. The food is out of this world. Never before have I been to a hotel with so much food and so many choices. The pool area is great and the water flumes a very welcome addition when you have a 14 year old son. The entertainment at night is great, music, quizzes, pool tables and a special shout out to Adam who does the entertainment. He is such a cheery person no matter what time of day you see him! The staff are great and have loads on during the day for kids and adults. The hotel is spotless and there's always someone somewhere cleaning. Martinas, the lady on the bar, was also always cheery and had a laugh with us. A special mention to the hotel manager, Alex as he was there for us all the time to answer questions and any queries we may have had and was so warm and welcoming. Amazing hotel with amazing people working there that made our family holiday so great and a holiday that we'll always remember

Spent 10 days at this hotel with my daughter and her two children 13years and a 7 months old baby. We had an enjoyable holiday but 10 days was enough . The pool area is all concrete so not ideal for baby and due to tall buildings all around different parts of pool in shade various times during day also main pool was bit cold or you could say refreshing also very busy . We discovered the smaller restaurant with windows on same level as childrens pool about the third day thank goodness much more pleasant place to eat than the main restaurant which was so noisy and hot really uncomfortable. the staff were very nice and accomodating especially the bvarman David who was literally run off his feet at times. Adam the English entertainments guy also did a good job of holding quizes and arranging some outside entertainment .

this hotel was amazing,it looks like its built in a rock and has lots of lovely features like waterfalls and African theme throughout,myself and my husband and grandchild went in july 2015 and the manager upgraded us to gold meaning we could drink premium spirits,the food was out of this world with seafood platters every day,joints of meat and an abundance of desserts and ice creams.the room was lovely too,theres loads to do for kids and the hotel provided sweets and candy floss every day.the only downfall was the service at the bar as it was slow but apart from that I would go again.
