The hotel was lovely. Food was good and varied. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. One criticism that pool bar is not included in all inclusive but prices were reasonable.

6/10 Good

Ok for the 3-4 Stars
We had 2 rooms - the sea view was fine, the garden room was overlooking someones back yard. The hotel is on the public beach. Good local shops otherwise not close to any larger areas. The staff in the restaurant were fine and the food was ok. The reception staff need a personality. The pools were clean - the pool towels had holes in them but we could not be bothered to address it to reception staff as they would rather avoid interacting with clients. On check out they did not even ask how our stay was and hope to see us soon one day. The rooms are basic - its stated as 4 star but its 3 star IMO. We had issues with the air con - it took 5 minutes to get going and the filters were packed with dust - the on site repair man came and made us feel indadequate at notunderstanding air con equipment but we did make him clean the clogged up filters (albeit he did it in our shower). They only give 1 room key with a magnet to attach to the sensor which starts the room up- pain in the neck as if one of us wanted to go out we had to be let in or wake up our family. It achieved what we needed to achieve, no one fell ill, the kids loved the pool, basic kids entertainment. We arranged the holiday 5 days prior so we paid premium for a basic hotel - will book more in advance next time.

4/10 Fair

OK Hotel close to a public Beach
A very disappointing experience for a 4* All Inclusive Hotel. Surely reception staff should have a happy face. Had to pay for everthing with the exception of cheap quality & limited variety of alchol drinks and meals. A large variety of food but all cooked & prepared very similarly. Aimed mainly at the Eastern European community. Got bored with the food very quickly. All the soft drinks were watered down including the so called fruit Juices. We were a group of 6, we always had to wait for a table at every sitting, because they only had 2 tables in the restaurant that would accommodate 6 people. The head waiter felt he was doing us a favour. A person of self importance. Before the time of restaurant closed they would start picking the food up. WiFi was not available every in the hotel, very poor connection had to come to the main reception and stand at particular location to make a phone call. The reception and bar area where people would congregate was quite large and they would turn off the air conditioning here. In your bedroom you got one pillow the size was ideal for a child was very uncomfortable. Our bathroom was appalling, the toilet seat had to be replaced with a new one on the first day. The shower rail and curtain collapsed. Had a shower on the first day the tray overflowed and flooded the bathroom which went into the bedroom. Had to change rooms the next day. The room decor was old and tatty, beds were so uncomfortable was not able to get a good nights sleep once.
