Stayed at this hotel the last 2 weeks of August, so it was VERY busy. This is not a place if you want a quiet relaxing break, the pool area especially on our first week was very , very busy. Could always get a sun pounger mind you , was just hard to watch the kids at the pool due to numbers, had to stand besdie them and often pool itself felt a bit like human soup ! Second week was a lot less busy and was perfect in the pool area. We had a family room which was great 2 rooms and a bathroom with a sliding door between the bedrooms. I thought the food was excellent, we were on half board so had breakfast and dinner , both buffet, food choice and quality was excellent, although the dining room was huge so ambience was obviously a little lacking ! Breakfast was a puzzel, our premium room entitled us to eat in the Brassiere, smaller cafe stayle with more ambience, however the food choice there was sloghtly more limited than the larger dining room e.g. less flavours of jam, tended to run out of popular items and most importantly for me did not have a coffee machine with fresh ground coffee whereas the supposedly "lower" choice of the main dining room did. As the coffee in the Brassiere was awful, we started to go every morning to the main dining room, this casued consternation evening morning with the staff on the door who kept directing back to the "premium" option ! In terms of lucnh, very disapppointed iwth the resort and options on places to eat, our experience and others was that the options in our hotel were cheaper and better quality than other places tried. So we had lunch most of the days in hotel Italian brassiere, which was excellent and we were very happy with. Bar prices were very good so did not feel fleeced with price of drink. Evening entertainment was of a very high standard and fulfilled its purpose in keeping kids (4 and 7) entertained. One major downside for us was that this is very much a cash only hotel and all extras like room safe quite expensive. Typically hotels we have stayed in you can charge extras and drinks etc to room, saves you going over and back to ATM, but in this hotel NOTHING can be charged to the room. ATM is on site so very handy but if you had assumed using credit card and not cash lodged to account could cause a problem and worth knowing! In summary I would say that this hotel does what it says on the tin, does it well and does not pretend to be more than it says !
