Having seen some of the recent moaning reviews, I would like to point out that I do believe that they must have stayed at the wrong hotel. We stayed as a family of 12, age ranging from 3 to 72 year and all really enjoyed it. What some people do not tend to think about, they are on a family...

Was disappointed water park was the reason we booked, slides were open on rotation,lifeguards were very ignorant, the dinning hall where the buffet was so busy,noisy and kids running around (while mine were sat down behaving) it was like feeding time at the zoo!

I stayed at caretta beach in may with my husband and 10 year old son. Firstly I was expecting something a little 'posher' as I've always stayed in 3 stars previously but this was no better in fact other 3 stars hotels are better!!! My 10 year old loved it but I'm afraid the entertainment was embarrassing and cringe material....
