Price was the only good thing but don't be fooled - you get less than you pay for here.
False advertising. No airport shuttle, no free parking, no safety deposit box. Clientele is all families, really young couple looking for bargain and lots of skinhead/football types hanging team logos from balcony. Stay elsewhere. Pay more and have a nice holiday. It's also too far from beach and town center. Plus the beds are small and very uncomfortable.
Bedroom windows overlooking the farm, chickens and roosters dogs interfere with sleep.
Nice surroundings. Nice pools. We didn't use other facilities.
They didn't receive the request for a baby-cot from the Bookings website. They solved this within minutes. Unfortunately it smelled terribly (smoke).
The hotel was well run and the rooms a good size.
The swimming pools were very cold, even the heated ones. The pull out bed very uncomfortable. The location was not the best. The booking received from Booking.com was for only 2 people when we had booked 4.
Nice pools but very cold, the kids loved them though. Accross the hotel an great Italian restaurant Suaco! We just used the pools and the room. We enjoyed eating out and the day trips. Good little supermarket around the corner.
Typical All Inclusive hotel with mainly Brits and Germans, some Dutch or Scandinavian. We did not eat at the hotel. Rooms were very sober and not clean. Inventory not complete but after asking we got everything. Kids club is poor. Poor entertainment. Noisy bar. Although not allowed by the hotel staff, all sun beds were taken in the morning by laying towels on them. Cockroaches in the garden, not in the room. 10 minutes walk to the beach. Building in front of hotel blocks most of the ocean view. Rooms were not cleaned on two days (they forgot).
Location, having a kitchenette in the flat, staff were nice.
Breakfast was made using very cheap ingredients. Coffee and tea were just awful. Also, rooms are very noisy.
Very friendly good choice of food big complex but nicely spread out
Gym was very basic and if I stayed there for a month I would need to work out as the food was very good
It was only for one night.
the view from the balcony of the room was really nice. hotel is close of the main actractions (Los Gigantos,Las Americas...), 200mt to Playa De Arena.
The staff from the bar wasn't polite.
