Arrived early evening check in was great was handed a fruity drink while we checked in which was very quick our luggage was brought up to our room on the 4th floor no lift so had to use the stairs the bell boy must be used to all the stairs. Room was dark and a little dated coffee machine in rom but no kettle so missed my early morning cuppa, Bathroom could do with a makeover as some paint peeling, but was ok for the 2weeks stay, hairdryer was fine plenty of towels., the bed was quite high for my liking and wasn't keen on the mattress. The view from our room was disappointing we overlooked a building site to the right of the balcony, and I think was the laundry room etc so never sat out on the balcony at all. After unpacking went off to explore the hotel nice clean well kept gardens pool area very clean plenty of sun beds around 3 pools beach area very clean too and plenty of sun beds. Found the Buffett for some dinner, after been seated by the friendly staff got our drinks then wandered round all the selections of food there was something for everyone all the food was tasty and looked great, after a few drink from the lobby bar later on which the service was a little slow and they didn't have rose wine was informed this was only in the restaurants so chose another drink. We then started to realise the different colour of wristbands and we realised if we had upgraded at the hotel we had more choices of premium drinks but we had payed enough money so decided not to upgrade. After a good nights sleep we were up bright and early and went off to the pool area choose our sun beds sat for a while then made our way into the Buffett for breakfast and again loads of choice for everyone. Animation team were brilliant kept everyone entertained throughout the day, we liked the swim up bar was a great way to cool off and enjoy a cocktail or 2. We tried all the different restaurants the Italian and japenease were our favourites the Mexican was very poor., the steak house was ok Some mornings when we went for sun beds there was very little left around the active pool almost all of them were reserved with towels but no one on them it looks as though they had put towels down the night before and didn't return some days till midday this was passed onto the manager. Don't think we will return to this hotel in the future

Wonderful stay!

We had a great time staying at this resort. The entertainment staff were the best Erik, Jorge,Christian,Ivan and Javier. They kept us engaged and we enjoyed every minute. Also enjoyed the spa for a day. The food was ok, one suggestion is to have a larger dining area for the steakhouse, we were unable to get in to eat during our stay. House cleaning did a great job. Very happy with our stay.

It was a wonderful place to stay. We would absolutely stay here again because of the location, nice staff, and great food. Everyone from the bellboy, desk clerk, wait staff, massage therapist, and more made the most genuine effort to be nice and courteous and helpful to you.

Fabulous resort and staff

My first trip to this wonderful resort is nothing less than extraordinary. The resort is clean, the layout is well thought out, the food is great and the entire staff is very friendly. The entertainment staff (Erik, Ivan, Christian, Javier, Omar and Jorge) are all incredible. Their energy and personalities are infectious. I would definitely recommend this resort.
