The hotel a little worn but good The rooms were a good size and well furnished.. The staff in all areas were excellent. The salads and fish were very good but the cooked foods were not very hot.

Enjoyed our stay but hotel is really 3 star. Animation team are great and good fun but they are in dire need of new games equipment. Most of it is falling to bits.

2nd visit and 1st time all inclusive. Rather a lot of noise till 2.30 coming from the pool area and the all inclusive stopped at 11pm, which caught us out one night. Otherwise very good.

The hotel was very good. The pool and sun bathing areas were too small for the amount of people staying at this very large hotel. Everything was well run and the food was excellent. As a vegetarian, I did find that there was not a good variety of food suitable, except excellent salads, but not every night. A good stay enjoyed by both my wife and myself.
