    Spacious for 3 people apart from balcony being tiny.

    Not cleaned properly had to keep asking for towels and toilet roll room was only made for two people had to ask for more pillows balcony was tiny not big enough for 3. Food mostly catered for Portuguese and Spanish entertainment we had to amuse ourselves. Asked for a white coffee came in paper coke A cola cup.

    Very Basic food was passable but if you had an option you would not buy it.

    The food and drink out of plastic glasses

    - location right on beach and a 10 mins walk to new town and 15/20 min beach walk to old town. - food was good for all inclusive and always had a good choice (they ran out of some choices for breakfast each day - ham and cheese toasties). - bar staff friendly and try to make your stay personal

    When you go away the minimum you expect is to be welcomed with a friendly smile / reception staff -this is not the case as this hotel. - No wifi or signal in rooms for 4g (wifi only in the reception and bar) - if you get block C ask for a room closer to the hotel or you will spend your whole trip walking up and down hills to get the to beach, pool, room, reception, bar. - no bar in the hotel open after 11pm - pool is small and all the beds go quickly (lucky the beach was right beside us as we used this daily)

    Its not a boutique hotel..massive resort. Overcrowded pools and beach. Sea too cold to swim.

    The location was great to move around to the old town and the strip. The free bus service to the old town was a surprising bonus. Room cleaners were lovely, hard working and keen to ensure everything was okay in our apartment.

    Bed uncomfortable. Hills difficult to manage. Good selection of food, but by the time it was taken to a table it was cold. Staff rude and argued amongst themselves constantly. Not enough staff to cope with visitors demands. Entertainment tried hard but unfortunately failed. Badly organised boat trip to see dolphins in the wild/caves. The trip was frightening as the sea was so choppy, children were crying, many passengers suffered sea sickness. Life jackets were given but no safety talks. Boat ran out of petrol on route and on the way to the caves the driver said we weren't going to see the dolphins as the sea was too rough. Had I known that I would never have boarded the 2 and a half hour ordeal.
