We had a lovely week here. We got put into a room right above the entrance and carpark but after I asked, were moved the next day to a room with a view of the pool. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. However, it is very misleading for the hotel to say it has free WiFi. The WiFi is...

We had a superior room, overlooking the palm trees and one of the pools. The room was well equipped with very comfortable beds, shower ensuite, fridge, wide screen TV. There was a tidy balcony, with seating, table and a small airer for towels. The restaurant is predominantly self service, with the exception of certain specials which are prepared in front...

The food available with all inclusive program is at best average. A huge variety of calories but far between well prepared dishes. Nice pool aérea. Friendly staff. Kids loved the playground. Apartments were nice for a family that would like to have some space with sleeping kids. Separate bedroom and a big terrace.

Where do I start, this hotel or hotels are run separately really even though they are owned by the same company. We booked the apartments for 2 weeks from the 21/11-05/12. Apartments are ok, yes they need updating but they are good for what they are. We upgraded on our arrival to premier AI. Well this is where the problems...
