I was there mid october with a big group, for shootings and video recordings. My room was 304, let's say a villa with spacious livingroom, dressing, big bathroom, terrace and swimming pool. Ideal space so the hairdressers and make up artist could work in my room. Every morning a delicious breakfast in the room for our crew and the girls....

We arrived at the end of the season without realising the consequences. After paying almost £4000 for our family all inclusive holiday, the hotel was showing signs of closing. The food was being recycled, wine had run out and there seemed to be nothing but banana ice cream left for children (which is a huge no no). The water sport...

Firstly, some people have complained about the service they received when they checked in, however, in our case we arrived at about 1 am, to be met with hot towels and a drink. We were given the registration form, but told to fill it in later and drop back with them after breakfast. On arriving in our room we were...

Arrived at the White Palace and were greeted with hot towels, drinks and chocolates, what a wonderful start, and things just got better. We were told that we had been upgraded which was a lovely surprise. We had paid extra for a sea view and were really pleased with the room we were given. The staff are all so lovely,...
