Wow!! beautiful & peaceful location, we had a amazing time. Myself, husband & son stayed here recently. We stayed on the top floor in room 405 for 2 weeks. The room was spacious, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and a balcony over looking the pool. We stayed as room only and had to hire a fridge which cost 42 euro's for 2 weeks. We also hired the air con which was 120 euros and safe 37 euro, all these extras had to be paid up front in cash only, which is the only negative we can find regarding the hotel feeling this is a little pricey and unfair being cash only. The rooms and hotel was clean and tidy, and nicely decorated. The staff are always smiling, helpful and available to help if needed. The location is brilliant you are a few minutes walk from the main strip and the beach. The pool was great size and perfect for families, there are plenty of sun beds, you always get the people who are up first thing to put the towels out and disappear for the next 4 hours though!! The hotel has is own pool bar and restaurant, we used the bar mainly for drinks, a pint is 3 euros large bottle of water 1 euro, cans of fizzy pop 2 euros each, ice creams ranging from 2 - 3.50 euros the slushes are 3 euros. There is a game room next to the bar with pool table, table football and air hockey which the kids enjoyed the games range from 50 cent to 2 euros. There are loads of lovely restaurants we loved Escape, Iguana, Olive Tree, D&B restaurant & crazy golf. But we really enjoyed the Two brothers restaurant, the staff are lovely and really helpful, the food is reasonable priced and lovely. There gave us lots of advice regarding the local area, definitely worth a visit. We found generally food and drink everywhere really expensive, most drinks are 2 - 4 euros, and a meal range 7 to 12 euros all depending what you had. There are many cash machines around, I found I got better rate to the pound if I declined the cash machines rate and had a unguaranteed rate.
The beach is beautiful and peaceful and it's lovely to see all the turtle nests, we went on 2 trips during our stay, we visited the Water park and Turtle island & Keri cave trip. We actually got to see turtles which I was really surprised! We booked via the tour operators on the main strip as they are more reasonable priced than Thompsons.
Overall we loved our holiday, the hotel is fab, the location is beautiful, the staff are wonderful :)
