Positive Reviews

Days of wine - but no rosés!

This is what life should be like; laid back and easy. They've thought of everything here including, in the restaurant, there are easy to access water, soda ... and wine dispensers. Food is good too, with a lot of choice and several restaurants to choose from. Trouble is, in this ideal world, someone still has to prepare the food and fill up the wine dispenser!

Great pool.

Always very clean with nice furniture surrounding it, there are no problems with the pool.

Friendly, helpful staff.

In all departments, staff couldn't be more pleasant and efficient. They help the whole holiday go like clockwork.

Negative Reviews

'Water, water everywhere.'

Room fridges are limited to supply only water; anything else comes at a hefty fee. Other drinks, then, including soft drinks, are best bought elsewhere and stored in the room.

Silver linings come with clouds.

English isn't commonly spoken, so announcements tend to be in Spanish, French or Russian. You are probably missing out on some essential information but, if you don't understand these languages, you'll never know! Check-in can take forever! It's worth shopping around if you are thinking of going on planned excursions as they can be very expensive. Rooms are a bit of a letdown. Small and dated with elderly bed linen, erratic air conditioning and Wi-Fi that stubbornly refuses to swing into action.

Grassed up.

The beach is OK, if somewhat sand blasted. Fortunately they clean it twice a day but when the guy who does it has a day off, things decline quickly. In fact, with sea grass a few feet high, access to the beach can become an expedition.
