We have just returned after a 5 night stay half board. This review will make it out like this is the worst hotel ever but its not, it just was not worth the money that we paid.
on arrival we were greeted by a rude receptionist that had no interest. she advised us that we had been booked into a room with a double bed instead of 2 single which we chose to accept as she told us the view was great. our view was of 3 big red ugly buildings with no sunshine until late afternoon. we were on the 6th floor which meant we had to get the elevator to level 3, walk a long Stop correcting corridor to the next elevator and go up another 3 levels... not great when you have heavy cases. the room itself was ok, if it was a 3* apartment. the room was small, the walls were cracked, peeling and dirty, lamp hanging off wall, cold/like warm shower, the shower sealant was mouldy,1 English channel on tv, no mini bar as advertised and we were bitten several times on the first night, we then found ants under the bed although this was rectified vey quickly with a cleaner arriving within 5 minutes to change the sheets and spray with insect killer.
Now the food is acceptable if your the kind of person that eats for the sake of being full but if you like to enjoy your food- find somewhere else. Same goes for the entertainment (when on)- find somewhere else. you'll need to walk a good 15-20 minutes before you find good lively bars and entertainment which didn't bother us as we were just there to relax so the little cafes and quiet pubs did us fine- check out the Scottish corner if you have kids and don't want to walk far.
If you do choose to stay inside the hotel the entire holiday, go all inclusive as the drinks are pricey. 2 alcoholic drinks cost us 14 euros. the pool area is very busy and for some 'luxury' sunbeds you have to pay extra. if you don't lie pools hounded by kids go to the 3rd floor to the corridor with an aqua theme and you'll find a little fire exit door that leads to another pool which is very quiet, we spent most of our holiday at that pool.
If your looking for spa facilities, don't bother, they don't exist unless you just want a massage then the reception will call someone to come in from another salon and do it in a small room. but anyway, all in all its not a bad hotel but it is not worth what you pay for it and definitely NOT worth 4 stars
