Loved this hotel. Its location right on the beach is second to none, the sand dunes surrounding it are stunning (sand is everywhere you look :) and we had endless fun playing in the waves. Paying for sunbeds isn't ideal but we just spent most of the days on sun loungers in on the sandy bits in the hotel grounds looking out at the dunes and would then walk down to the sea or head down to the beach in the eve when the sun was a bit cooler and we didn't need a parasol.
The food was great, the salad bar was the best I've ever seen, so many different things to choose from and all really fresh. Breakfast was the works and a couple of days we had fresh smoothies on arrival! We preferred the restaurant's atmosphere in the older part of the hotel but they both served the same things. The 2 "a la cartes' are in fact buffets too but they provide a nice change.
If you go to the main bar by the evening entertainment they make you fresh mojitos which were yummy, we would get our drinks from here and then sit in the other bar as weren't really fans of the entertainment. Card room was a nice touch.
We were in the annex part and as others say it was pretty tired looking but the whole place was very clean, we had 2 massive patios and the place was very spacious. In reality all we did was sleep in it so we weren't bothered. The fact you don't get beach towels if you're in the annex seems a bit mean but we packed our own so were ok.
Overall a great all inclusive hotel with a location that really makes it!
