Fab 3nite stay
Hotel service was fab from start to finish of our 3 nite stay. Food was great a little cold at times but that would be due to us being late mostly 😄 great selection tho and beers wines etc was just class. We were lucky to get an upgrade on arrival with a pool view. Entertainment at the pool and at nite was great craic. Fabulous singer on monday nite past she could sing anything had my daccing on my balcony while getting ready for out in the town.

Hotel was spotless with staff constantly cleaning. Staff were amazing and nothing was a problem. The room we had was a delux view no 549 on top floor and the view was breathtaking. We did all inclusive and cannot find fault with any of the food. Good selection. Wine and beer on tap. You are just about ten minutes from the dunes which are amazing. Great Hotel and great staff. We will definitely be back. Brian

Great family resort
Great family resort most suitable for people with young children. If you want quiet need to request a room furthest from pool area. This does entail a long walk to main reception and dining areas. Food at buffet was adequate and met expectations for an all-inclusive 4-star hotel. The coffee and tea from the machine was terrible. Additional charges for a decent cup of coffee at the bar or to activate the in-room safe was not acceptable, something we have not encountered in similar properties Two nights of entertainment were of a high standard and one night below standard. Would not recommend this hotel for people without children.

Perfect for families with young children
This all-inclusive hotel is fabulous for families, not ideal for adults or a romantic get-away. Rooms are very spacious, well-equipped and nicely decorated. Service was very friendly. The location is very good for walking to the Masapalomas Dunes and Yumbo Shopping Centre. The food was decent and there was quite a good selection, though not always served hot. The shower had very low water pressure and changed from very hot to cold but maybe because my room was on the 5th floor (that's one way to conserve water!) There were so many families and noisy children running around the dining room that it was difficult to have a conversation. At the pool, it was impossible to find an empty chaise unless you left towels there early in the morning. Our biggest complaint were the unexpected extra charges. Never in our very well-travelled lives, have we been asked to pay for the use of the room safe - 2 EUR per day. The coffee in the dining room was undrinkable, whichever one you chose in the machine, and for "real" coffee at the bar, there was a charge. (So instead we went to cafes outside the resort). The mixed cocktails were ridiculously sweet and also undrinkable. Wines on tap were not good and all other drinks were considered premium, including cava, for an extra cost. Overall, I recommend it for families with young kids. They will love the kids' club, pools, playground and shows in the evenings.

Good hotel well positioned
Good hotel, staff were all very nice. We had a garden room which in our view wasn't worth the upgrade cost but that was a personal view. Bar and catering staff very nice but the buffet wasn't great, there didn't seem to be a lot of variety between the days, food didn't seem to be renewed quickly enough leading to gaps and queues

Good for families, but expect bad beds and noise
Our family stay here was pretty great, however some issues appeared. Pros: Great animation team&program, really kudos to all of them, they do amazing job! Stunning WiFi coverage although with 10/10 Mbps limit per device (always got that speed). All staff were extremely nice. Checked-in even a while before 2 PM. Sparkling clean. Great location close to the Dunes and nice design of the hotel. Adequate meal variety, good quantity/availability of foods. Excellent value for money! Cons: BEDS! Although they tied the single beds together upon request, they are very light and with wheels so they move all the time - but the worst thing is they are way too soft. We woke broken every morning. Balconies are not safe for small kids and a locked room is easily unlocked by 2y.o. (They gave us a wristband to write phone no. at least; there are only few CCTV cameras.) One type of glasses in the restaurant is usually dirty. Pizza is quite terrible. Drinks are too sweet/sugary. Beer is average (Amstel). Coffee is poor but drinkable. Children’s playing room only available 2h/day. The playgroynd could have more lights for the evenings. Some places could be arranged with more children safety in focus. We asked for a quieter room but got one above the main pool with the stage visible, so that didn’t really work. Actually, there are very little “quiet” rooms - expect music all day. Not a good choice if you need to do some work (no good sitting in rooms). Still we were very satisfied.

A bit disappointing
I want to first say that the entertainment and cleaning staff did a great job. They were friendly and always around to make our stay pleasant. If there were a separate rating for the entertainment staff, I would give them the highest rating possible. In fact, I felt a bit sorry for them, as they were the same staff from morning through midnight. The same energetic group of young people got us motivated and exercised throughout the day, took care of our son during “kids time” and after-dinner “kids disco,” and even put on a nightly show. Yes, they earned every penny the hotel paid them. Unfortunately, I got the vibe that the ownership just wanted to squeeze every penny they could out of us and their staff. Though we were at an all-inclusive hotel, the nickel-and-dime vibe started at check-in when we were informed that there was a small fee each time we exchanged our pool towel. While this could certainly be forgiven as an eco-friendly reminder not to waste water, the daily fee for use of the room safe could not. Likewise, the additional charge for ice cream and popcorn prominently displayed for kids to see (and desire) was disappointing, as was the additional cost for a proper cappuccino. Coffee aficionados would be disappointed, as the only non-fee options were filtered coffee (which was fine) at breakfast (not available at lunch or dinner) and the extremely dated self-serve machines that spewed bland powdered warm drinks throughout the day. Could go on, but no room.

The room, its view, the weather and the food were all good to great. The vast majority of the Staff were helpful, friendly and efficient, with the exception of the "senior manager" who thinks barking "you have to pay for that" is good practice when one hasn't been there long and doesn't yet know that "all-inclusive" is a "flexible" term. Note that this hotel is now firmly "Family with Children" oriented (for example tennis courts were removed for yet another playground) and while you won't find tranquility, rip roaring or sophistication it is still good to very good.
