Having read previous reviews we were a little nervous about what to expect , I’m not sure if i stayed at the same hotel as some of these reviewers 😀as we had no negatives whatsoever during our weeks holiday and will be going again next year.
The hotel is about a 15-20 minute transfer from the airport and set in a quiet area , we had no noise at all from inside or outside the hotel.
Our room was a deluxe room on the top ( 3rd floor ) and was very peaceful and we had a lovely view of the hotel gardens and mountains as well as being able to people watch from the balcony.
The room was beautifully decorated and had a lovely four poster bed , additional seating , large desk/dressing table and a beautiful bathroom with a full bath and a shower. The water was always piping hot and it was nice to have a choice of a bath to relax or the shower for quickness.
The air conditioning was ice cold and we had ours on 24 hours a day - not sure why previous reviewers had a problem.
The room fridge was very useful and the coffee tray well stocked , no tea bags but these were plentiful in the dining room to bring back to the room.
The hotel is modern , clean and again well furnished .We had no problem getting a sun bed regardless of what time we went to the pool area.
The 2 swimming pools are large and well kept and the swim up bar was very handy , there is also an outdoor spa pool.
There were hardly any children at the hotel and as far as we could see it does not offer the usual kids clubs etc, this suited us and we enjoyed the “adult” atmosphere.
It was nice to see people making an effort in the evening and most guests wore smart evening wear which makes a change.
The food - where do I start , the choice on the all inclusive was amazing, something different every evening ( yes chips were available with everything) but so much more .
We enjoyed various steaks, chicken,lamb etc every night as well as a delicious choice of fresh vegetables, salad and fruit.
The breakfast meant you could actually have a “ full English “ if that’s your thing or a multitude of different items , lunch was the same and always different to the evening meal.
There were sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and ice cream available in between meals if you had the room!
The wine was very good and so were the cocktails served from the pool bar or lounge, there were different cocktails available in the restaurant each evening.
Live entertainment was provided every evening except on the Saturday when a wedding took place , the entertainment was very enjoyable and it was nice to experience local dancing and singing.
The staff always found time to speak , regardless of the time of day or night and were always smiling.
All the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble, the housekeeping staff came every day and our room was kept immaculate and restocked with shower gel etc .
A special mention to Harris who was a joy and his cocktails amazing, he also played instruments in the evening entertainment and is a major asset at the hotel.
The staff work very hard from early morning to late at night to ensure you have a great holiday and I thank them for their hard work and efforts.
Can’t wait to go back next year.
