I absolutely loved this holiday.
The apartments were lovely. The location was perfect for us. Comfy beds, two bathrooms and spacious.
Food was very good and even better with them serving us at the counter instead of rolled picking through it. The coffee shop was amazing and the girls serving were lovely.
Bar staff went the extra mile.
Entertainment was a bit lacking but I’m assuming that’s because of Covid. They tried their best but it was repetitive.
Pools were beautifully clean and the perfect temperature.
Bell boys were available to drive us up to our rooms on the golf buggy if the kids were tired.
Beach was stunning. Plenty of sun beds and toilets nearby. Lunch can be had next to the beach.
Towels provided and can be changed when needed.
White night and X-ray nights were both cancelled due to Covid or sickness, we heard both reasons.
The hotel was used by the rally world champions so that proved how good it is.
My only gripe is with TUI and not the hotel. I booked 2 years in advance because of how great it is. I was then told that TUI didn’t renew their contract and so the holiday would not be honoured. I changed my holiday and got charged £500 and TUI would not reimburse me as I’d done it before they confirmed the change. I had no choice as would lose out on my free child place.
I’ll definitely go again but with another tour operator.
I stayed her for a week for some winter sun. I can’t say what it is like in peak season but out of season it is impeccable. The rooms are huge and well appointed. The pool and facilities are wonderful. The staff were amazing and helpful. The gym and spa were brilliant. And of an evening as it becomes chilly there is a bar full of chesterfield sofas, high ceilings and a glorious open fire. The beach was a 2 minute walk. This hotel really can’t be topped out of season.
Loved this hotel so much, just booked again for next year.
Were in room 1644, perfect, two bedroom/bathroom bungalow (would love the same room next year if possible). Spotlessly clean.
Adult/quiet pool is chilled, shaded and beautiful.
Main pool area is much bigger with music being played (but not too loud) and plenty of sunbeds.
Food is excellent. Breakfast and evening meals are served in the main restaurant. Nice to sit outside. Lots of choice and generally a good standard. Lunch was fantastic with a choice of the main restaurant buffet or the use of the steak, Turkish and Italian restaurants. After the first week we started to miss breakfast to take advantage of the superb lunches served here.
Tried the steak, seafood, Chinese and Italian a la carte restaurants in the evening and all were good.
Great selection of drinks served at the pool and beach bar.
Would like to see re-usable plastic cups, as served in other AI holidays we've stayed at, around the pool areas instead of paper cups. Saw a few empty cups being blown by the breeze into the sea.
Entertainment at the amphitheatre was good with dancers, acrorbatics and magic shows.
Always a good night at the beach bar with either a DJ or live band.
Lastly the staff, superb. Everyone was so friendly and happy to help.
Bar staff, coffee corner girls, restaurant waiters and the guys serving the food.
All wearing PPE and cleaning everywhere meticulously. Felt safe and looked after for the entire 2 weeks.
See you all next year
