Pool area was nice and clean. Always had a bed. Food was good. Nice view. Tired room but clean. Had a carpet which I've never seen in a hotel abroad. Only negative is the hotel was full of older people and the resort was sooooooo quiet. Nothing to do. If your an older French person this place is for you though. 😊

The hotel is clean and majority of staff are pleasant and friendly, although the police did attend one night as the entertainment manager got a bit aggressive with a hotel guest !! Experienced this myself when after 10 days of everyone eating snacks around the pool the bar manager stormed over to me shouting that it was unhygienic to be eating at the poolside snatched my sons food away without giving me an option to move with the food and walked away, I reported this to the hotel director but nothing came of it. This hotel is not a 4* should be a 3* star, The swimming pool is not big enough for the hotel and is badly designed as it has sloping sides so the kids can't stand up properly. Everyday the pool is taken over by the aqua aerobics people appear out of no where to join in, taking over the shallow side of the pool, so the kids are forced out the pool or made to swim in the deep water at 1.75m, this also happens later when the water polo starts. The snack bar by the pool was supposed to serve food during the day, well it was cakes only until - the Spanish holidáy kicked in and the hotel starting filling up with Spanish then all of a sudden it was burgers and hotdogs ( we had been told by our useless hotel rep that it was closed due to health & safety ) but magically opened when the Spanish arrived. The kids playground turned out to be 1x slide and 2x swings. There is nothing for kids of any age to do in the hotel, the entertainment in the evenings is a lady singing Cher songs in the lounge bar, the kids are all bored. The teenagers end up sitting in the lobby on the wifi which is only available in reception 10 hours for 10 euros, on the day you arrive you are asked to pick your dinner time for your stay this is either 7pm or 8:45pm, this must be stuck to and they are not happy if you ask to change time slot, so your whole day has to be planned around your dinner slot. Drinks are self serve all day from the various machines, but no ice creams for kids. We were told on booking that they was a golden sandy beach close to the hotel, this turned out to be grey/black in colour and had the texture of grit. The golden beach was a good 20 minute taxi ride from the hotel. The taxi drivers were good and lots about. Booked a sea view room ended up on entrance to hotel with the air con units running 24 hours a day. Rooms are cleaned everyday day, maid staff are really friendly.

Have just returned from an 11 night stay with my husband and two daughters aged 18 and 14. The only major fault this hotel has is the lack of air conditioning. It is almost non exsitant. Having told reception the a/c in my room was not working they upgraded both mine and my daughters rooms to the better side of the hotel but the a/c was no better. Other than that the hotel is excellent. Very clean and really friendly staff. The resturant was spotless and there was always something nice to eat although there was a tad too much fish. Great location with friendly taxis right outside the hotel and really cheap. Had a fantastic holiday.
