Just back from the Rising Star after 2 weeks, party of 3 Adults and 2 children, All Inclusive.Really good location beside the beach and excellent pool area. Apartments dated but really clean with everything you require. Cleaning staff do an excellent job and are really helpful and polite as is the Manager, Bar and Restaurant staff. First week, excellent evening entertainment, good singers, a parrot show and a magic show which was brilliant! Unfortunately on the Saturday there was a wedding and we were moved to the Golden Star to use their facilities and to eat there....this was a joke.....hotel was so busy, hundreds of locals everywhere and the noise levels were unacceptable until 3am in the morning...no use for the kids. Impression owners treated the guests as second class citizens and did not care!!! Just when we thought it could not get any worse, over 100 Norwegian elderly guests arrived and took over the hotel. Entertainment at night the second week was changed to suit them and UK people were not looked after. Even the pool area was taken over by them doing exercises in the morning at the side of the pool. We went All Inclusive and I would not recommend...lack of choice and the food was awful....landed up eating out most nights. Was nervous re the entertainment guy as per previous reviews but he is no longer there, new guy Stan who is an absolute star and the kids loved him. Well done Stan...if it was not for you the kids would not have had a good holiday! Will not be returning to this group of hotels!
