My friend and I needed a chilled out holiday......it ended up being one of the most peaceful, relaxing breaks I have ever had. Fantastic food, excellent facilities, staff are incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. If you want or need adventure, there are plenty of day trips on offer. I chose to be a bit lazy and just...

We spent a week here for our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful and very clean! Staff were always friendly and willing to answer any questions. This was the first time my husband and I had done an all inclusive holiday and while it was relaxing and good to be away from normal life - it's not really our thing. It...

Good = food quality, staff, clean bedrooms, beach, activities. Ok = evening entertainment, Bad = accomodation blocks are like echo chambers, they need carpets or something to lower the noise, plus soft close doors. If thomson were honest and sold this hotel as 4 star then not be a typical sales fault of over promise and under deliver.

My overall opinion of the hotel is that it is a nice 4* Housekeeping - excellent - rooms and public places are kept spotlessly clean, the staff work tirelessly in the pool toilets to keep them clean all day, unlike many more expensive 5* hotels I have stayed in. Clean sheets and towels daily in the bedrooms. Bedrooms - very...
