This is a beautiful hotel, the rooms are clean and spacious and possibly the nicest I've stayed in in Spain. The staff here are in generally lovely and extremely helpful. If I had lots of small Kids I would have no hesitation in bringing them here. For adults with no children the adult only area is the place to be, with Bali beds, lots of sunbeds it's a haven. This is my first holiday to go all inclusive and it's worth it to cover day time drinks etc. the only issue I have found with our stay is the food. The buffet breakfast offers lots of choices but the lunch and dinner are not enjoyable. There are two other restaurants at the complex, one Italian(buffet) and one Chinese. The food at both is not enjoyable. It's a real shame because the hotel is fairly perfect if the restaurants could up it a notch

4 star hotel

Had booked this hotel months ago and after reading many reviews was worried what the hotel would be like, just got back yesterday so have this fresh on my mind. We stayed for one week, with two boys aged 14 and 9. General view of hotel is very good we arrived at midnight and had complimentary drinks and cold buffet, our bags were taken to our room, before that I did write to hotel 4 times but my emails never Answered which was a let down apart from them noting my sons birthday my other requests were not answered. The hotel was huge and took us couple of days to get to know the hotel, firstly room was double superior, bloody huge and best room we have stayed for all inclusive, bathroom was brilliant and apart from poor view of balcony cannot fault this. The food at main restaurant was very good, previous review on no pizza, on the Monday our last day tuna pizza was one of the options, weird but true. The other choices were great, I gained 4lbs on the food and drink alone, lots of fish and meats, if you are a vegan on veggie then limited choice. Chinese restaurant was ok, little choice of what you could eat but my family loved it, disappointed with the Italian, the salt on our food made the food quite sharp, although I thought overall choice was very good. Subbed issue yes other reviews are accurate. Didn't bother us as we don't sunbathe all day and we found sunbirds after 4.00 no problem. During our stay hottest part of the day was after 15.00 anyway. One free use of the spar in adult only pool was lovely, the animation team was very good but our kids did not get involved with the daily team but seeing them in action they tried very hard. Evening entertainment in the indoor area was not to our taste, evening show we will rock you very poorly mimed but Chinese show excellent and one show was outside which had fire show and jugglers brilliant. We had tried to get extension till 16.00 on last days and final day before hand were granted this at 25 euro mire which was really good and as our flights were late in the evening used all inclusive after we checked out which unlike our previous All inc holiday could not do. The taxi to town was 4 euros, Marina was 20 min walk. Overall had a great time, hotel and majority of staff were very good and did not have too many complaints. Am sure anyone who goes and book this hotel in the main will have a great time. Any questions then let me know.

This was our second visit to this resort and we enjoyed it even more than the first, every request we made before was carried out and the improvements made since last year are really good, special thanks to Tony in Las Colorados restaurant for his excellent service every day. The only criticism is the reception staff did not always seem interested and and some further training may be helpful. The food again was really good and there was a very good choice in the buffet which we preferred, we are used to eating out and found the food and hygiene of an excellent standard. On the whole a great holiday experience.
