    Return and wow how it has changed for the better

    Stayed here for 11 nights after last being here 4 years ago and the improvements made to the pool, reception area, party area/pool and most importantly the rooms is fantastic. The food was very good with plenty of choice from around the world. The cocktail area and coffee shop is a nice addition. Best of all were the staff, very attentive any issue no problem and instantly fixed. The breakfast and evening buffet table staff were great and looked after us well after a few days we were all friends. The ladies providing the drink service in the evenings and in the cocktail bar, served us our regular drinks without asking. The staff around the pool were always closeby for drinks. We loved the covered areas around the pool. House keeping good with the nightly turn down service done well. The separate party pool area was new and a very different enjoyable experience to watch if not join in..... Wifi was available throughout the resort and was fast and reliable. There was one exceptional piece of customer service from reception that was not to much problem for them and a few weeks after the holiday I was very grateful for what they did for me. Will I be going back, you try and stop me.
