Food was nice but a bit repetitive but over all very nice. The rooms were ok and during a heavy down pour a slight leak appeared in our ground floor room presumebly from the balcony above flooding not a major issue though.
the a la carte restraunts were top quality and regret not visiting them more often.
Our room was probably as far away from the beach as you could get but enjoyed the walk and resisted the seemingly north american type urge to jump on the resort train at every opportunity for even the smallest journey #LAZYNESS!
we had our own pool area at the top of the resort and restraunt/bar but all the life and partying seem to take place at the beach bar and bigger pool area but not a problem as we went there for 'a chilled 1' and it was just that... apart from the louud north americans(very loud and pot calling kettle black being english) and the very annoying plastic trolly/tubs the staff wheeled down the corridors at all hours rattling like mad on the concrete floors!!
The staff werre all very nice though they struggled to understand my northern english accent :(
Geat holiday great hotel just a few niggles but a top time was had!!
