We arrived end of August and were not too sure what to expect with the covid restrictions, but we had an absolutely fantastic holiday. Staff all very friendly, and the kids club, activities, and mini disco etc was all running as normal, just with a little social distancing in place. Entertainment in the evening was usually a singer, or a small band in the huge lobby, which was nice and relaxing. Tables all very well spaced out, and everyone was great wearing masks when going up to the bar or when walking through to toilets or lifts etc. Dinner in the buffet restaurant was 'assisted', so you queued up at the area you wanted, and there were numerous members of staff lined up walk you round and place everything on your plates. Sometimes the queues looked really busy but there was always alot of staff about so the queues went in quick. Drinks were typically served at the table, but you could go up to the bar too. Very nice spacious grounds, with different pools, and kids play area close to the shallow pool with pirate ship slides. Just one bar for all the pools but the queues didnt seem to last long. Nice ice cream included in the AI, aswell as Somersby cider which was lovely. No cava or sparkling wine which was disappointing, but the wines were nice, and it made a nice change having cider available. Hotel not close to anything, but there was a great tourist train that took you round to the beach, otherwise it was a 15 minute walk. Nice bar and Italian restaurant just across the road from the car park where the train drops you off. Bedroom was huge, and the walk in shower in the huge open plan style bathroom was amazing. Unusual layout, but huge, and lovely big balcony looking on to the pools. We were staying a week so were given a voucher for a free meal in the a la carte restaurant up the top of the hotel. Beautiful sunset views, and the food was amazing in there.
We arrived late on the 10th of September for 7 nights, and due to covid we didn't know what expect. When we arrived we noticed that everyone was wearing masks even the small children. The hotel staff were very friendly, the four that stood out the most and couldn't do enough for you were Vanessa, Marcel and Rodrigo from the 19th hole restaurant and the nice guy that wore the base ball hat in the towel hut.The hotel was very clean and the staff were constantly going around sanitising every where even the sun beds once they had been used ready for the next person. We highly recommend the Moonlight Restaurant for the a la carte food. You get a voucher to use once but for an extra €15 per person you can go back in and enjoy the food on another occasion
We went 25th August for 10 nights. We weren’t sure what to expect due to Covid19. So you have to wear a face mask at all times unless you are sat on sun bed or at a table eating or drinking. All staff wear masks at all times. There’s hand sanitizer stations everywhere. Buffet restaurant you can’t help yourself there’s a barrier and the staff stand behind it and ask what you want and they pick for you. The hotel was immaculate. The staff were attentive and never moaned once about wearing masks and just remember these people have to work in 30 degree heat for 10 hours a day wearing a mask at all times!!! I take my hat off to them. This was our second visit and our wedding anniversary, we arrived and were given key cards to our room and there were rose petals on the bed and towels made into swans and a bottle of champagne on ice and a really lovely note from the staff welcoming us. The children’s club team were very enthusiastic and worked their socks off to entertain. The room was cleaned and turned down daily with fresh towels. Food was lovely and lots of choice. Our daughter cut her knee in the room it was quite a gash. First aid was very quick to help out very attentive. The next day the nurse looked at it and suggested we go to A&E, we did this and although it was a wait when we came back. We needed a fit to fly document from the doctor for insurance purposes. The hotel offered to drive us back to get this which we thought was very generous. When we went back to the room there was a box of treats for our daughter and a little note from the hotel. When we were leaving we had an early flight and early pick up. We had to leave before breakfast opened and the hotel staff opened up the restaurant an hour early so we could eat breakfast before being picked up. In the light of what’s going on in the world the hotel and staff did their absolute best to make it a memorable experience and it certainly was.
