This hotel deserves it's excellent reviews. Rooms were clean, well maintained we had room 2105 which faced out the front of the hotel but we had a huge balcony and the sun from 1pm till down. Location was great a few high end shops,casino and beach bars. We walked to playa del ingles along the beach and sand dunes about an hour but well worth it. We visited the water park and zoo but didn't pay Thomson prices we got a taxi which was cheap and payed 2 for 1 tickets on entry. The food is vast,fresh and managed to eat something different every night. We sat outside for lunch as had better ambiance. Pools are clean and warm there is 9 to choose from! some with a fake beach. Including the lazy river which was our favourite. No need to reserve a bed as long as you are at pools by about 11. If people put towels down before 9 you get a snotty letter from the management on the your sunbed. The grounds are very well kept with signs telling you what trees they are. Service excellent. My only gripes would be there are lots of children! Who knows what it would be like in holidays and the walls are very thin so we got woken up at 7 by screaming children. And the entertainment really isn't great. But All in all one of the best hotels I've stayed in when abroad.

Recently returned from a two week fabulous holiday. Great clean pools, friendly staff, good food and so much to do. Tom the sports guy was excellent and was really enthusiastic. The gym is well stocked and clean. Wifi is not the best but the option of renting a box is available. Completely recommend this hotel.
