This was me and my wife’s second visit within the the last three years, and our second visit was equally as good as the first. Starting with a very nice welcome, in the newly refurbished lobby/reception area.On a nice quick check in, we were upgraded to a sea view room, which was unexpected, but greatly received. We were an early morning check in, but were lucky enough to have our room ready, almost straight away, cases taken to our room, and our holiday was to begin. The hotel, grounds, pool areas were all as fantastic as we remembered, food quality again was first class. We used shooters a couple of times, and the sister hotels restaurant the white orchid, which was also first class. Breakfast was plentiful, with a good, and adequate variety. All staff were very welcoming, from reception, to housekeeping, pool staff, and hard working maintenance employees.The food standards are superb here, and the all inclusive beverages again very good, with many branded beers, wines, and spirits. Complimentary bus service to the malls again were great, and prompt as well. Me and my wife attended the bateaux meal cruise, which is a small supplement but I would say a must do when visiting this hotel, especially for the price, and experience,(first class)!! We did miss the Italian restaurant this time, as it is being moved to a higher floor, and will be ready very soon, but lots of good alternatives. Overall this was a fantastic second visit, and like many others we spoke to there won’t be our last. This hotel prides itself on return custom, and you can certainly see why. I would just like to say to all the staff there, keep up the fine customer experience, and service you have provided for us once again, and we look forward for our third visit at the first opportunity we get!

My self and my family arrived for a 8 night stay on the 4th September upon checking in I had to pay the tax for the room which I was aware of not an issue but then I was told we had interconnecting rooms so this was classed as 2 rooms even though it said on my confirmation 1 family room reluctantly paid as the receptionist was adamant it was 2 rooms . Went to our room which I must say was very nice and our luggage was brought to us . Once in our room we noticed the mini bar was locked after a long night traveling my children were desperate for a drink so had to call reception for somebody to come and unlock the fridge for us which they did but only unlocked the one when I asked him to unlock the fridge in the other room I was told he couldn’t as it was classed as ONE ROOM not 2 so only entitled to the one mini bar after having to explain to him that I’ve just had a disagreement with other the receptionist over the tax I paid due to it being 2 rooms then both mini bars would be available he disagreed with me after another long conversation with reception they finally agreed to unlock the other fridge so those of you that have family rooms be sure to ask for both mini bars to be unlocked as you have paid for 2 rooms !! I appreciate the hotel had only just had a renovation but it was a nitemare trying to pass all the builders on the 3rd floor that were still working in rooms and painting walls the hotel was quite fully finished . I also found 2 of the bar men at the La Fontana Bar very rude to my children every time they tried to order a drink they were ignored and the bar men would carry on and serve the adults when try did finally get a drink they were given just a can with a straw no plastic cup with ice like everyone else bearing in mind I spent thousands on this family holiday and the children had just as much right to the all inclusive as everybody else !!! The aircon in the room was broke and wouldn’t go any lower than 26 as you can imagine this was very uncomfortable after 3 phone calls the maintenance man finally came and fixed it , also there was no hot water for the first 3 days of our holiday and we had to shower in cold water we obviously complained about this but nothing was done Apart from all of the above the food was lovely not much choice in the buffet for children I had to ask for them to cook them something as the only option one night was pasta and some chips , I must say the chef was very accommodating and Cooked them some chicken which we were very grateful for I don’t think I would rush back to this hotel Read less

Very nice hotel resort with nice beach and pools. Great selection of bars & restaurants, but take some time to find them. All Inclusive package is a little confusing, regarding beverages, and you need to pay attention when signing every restaurant & bar bill to won't be surprised on check out. Very nice experience over all.
