We stayed from 22-29 August 2017, 2 adults and 1 child aged 10.
We had room 240 and it was in a block close to the pool which was handy. Room was fine, bed nice and firm, air con worked and bathroom was fine. Fridge didn't work very well and when reported someone came to fix it.
Food was fine, always something to chose but not the best I've ever had. A shame that drinks at dinner are not self service as the staff are really busy and it is not always easy to get their attention if you would like a second drink.
The pool is nice and we had no issues with sun beds going to the pool about 10 am. There are not hundreds around the pool area but there is a grassed area nearby that has more sunbeds. There is also the beach close by that has lost of sunbeds and umbrellas. Nice kids play pool with slides. Pool closes at 6 pm.
There is also a small kids park by the kids club, 2 swings, slide, roundabout, small climbing frame and seesaw.
There are pool games most days and also volleyball. There are darts games in the morning unfortunately the darts are mainly broken and the dart board is that old the darts don't stick in very well. A new dart board and couple of sets of darts are not going to cost that much so a shame that the managers haven't bothered to replace them.
As has been voiced before, the entertainment by the animation team is quite poor. On the one night that a musician was brought in they were very good, a shame that more outside acts are not used.
Beach is nice, not sure why people moan about the stones its only a couple of meters and then it is sand. The water in the sea was warmer than the pool!
Bar staff are all good (except for an old bloke who I think is a manager and was rude).
One day I needed to go to a chemist for some medicine. I spoke to the reception who rather than have me trudge off a couple of miles rang their bus driver who was in the town and had him pick the items up for me and brought them to the hotel, above and beyond so thank you.
Not many British families but that was no issue to us and it was nice to have a mix of nationalities.
Really relaxing week thank you.
