Good hotel overall. ROOM. sea view deluxe. Great sea and pool view. Quite large. Wardrobe and clothes storage is not big enough for us on a 12 night stay. Bathroom is a bit on the small side. POOL. Nice and large, we went to the quieter end to be away from the noisy children who were all having a great time. Sun beds could be more comfortable. FOOD. We had some very nice lunchtime meals at the Pizzeria. Breakfast was quite average, often very busy and noisy. MUSIC. We generally enjoyed the music and the Hard Rock vibe. The live bands in the Hard Rock Cafe were very good... however the DJ played very annoying dance type music in the intervals! STAFF are generally very good and there are lots of them. Some could do with being a bit more attentive, it was hard to get their attention on some occasions, they would be grouped together talking or looking at their phones. The staff at the concierge desk were very friendly and helpful. Read less
