We booked this hotel from 6th September to 13th September.
We arrived very early in the morning so the place was extremely quiet, we checked in very quickly and went straight to sleep.
We was given room 301, when booking the room with First Choice, I thought we would be getting a room with a double bed and a single bed also. Instead we received a double bed in one room and a bunk bed in the room you first walk into when entering the room. This wasnt ideal as we were three friends and wanted to be in the same room. We went down for breakfast at the main restaurant, the staff all said good morning which was lovely. There was a lot of choice for breakfast but I will be honest in saying we were disappointed with the quality of food. We had our meeting with our first choice rep and explained about the room, we got changed 2 days later to room 106, the bathroom was much nicer in this room but again we got a double bed and a bunk bed but this time in the same room.
The pool areas were lovely and the sunbeds provided were great. The hotel as a whole was always very clean and each member of staff was always polite and friendly, this to me was the best thing about the hotel.
There are four restaurants in this hotel, the main restaurant which was a major disappointment, we didnt like the food and we saw it as just being slop, you could not have a balanced meal as it was mainly carbs. Next was the Italian, if you stay in this hotel, you MUST go to the italian, the food was beautiful. There was the Green & Grill, staff were very friendly but the food wasnt great and very limited choice. Next the Tavern by the sea which was lovely. One thing about the three seperate restaurants, they do not cater for bugs, there is no bug repellent so be prepared to be eaten alive, we all were and I would say we each got at least 20 bites throughout our stay.
We went to the beach twice, you have to pay for the beds which I didnt think we had to but this was fine. The beach is lovely and clean.
We had a very late check out at 1am in the morning, our first choice rep left us a letter explaining the process, it was mentioned that the hotel may sometimes hold on a courtesy room for you and if they are unable to do that you can have a late check out room at an extra cost. When asking at reception, neither was available but they do have a wash room and provide towels so you can have a reasonably normal day.
Lastly I would like to make a point about the bars, they only offer around 6 cocktails, all are made extremely strong, the best I would say was the yummi. This hotel does not have much to offer when it comes to nightlife which left us extremely bored of a night time. The entertainment was awful and terribly cheesy, it felt more for the kids even though it was 9pm.
This hotel is unfortunately in the middle of nowhere, which meant we couldnt even venture out for nightlife, there is a bar across the road that was always empty, a small supermarket which didnt have much to offer. There are about 3 restaurants on the beach front.
This hotel is also very german orientated, with english being the third language rather than the second, we were definitely the minority and their food is catered more towards germans.
This hotel has great potential but for now it was very mediocre, they could do a lot more considering it was a four star hotel. It also does not look like the advertising pictures.
