We arrived at 09.00hrs 24hrs after leaving Gatwick due to a problem with the aircraft which resulted in us going via Venice. We were very tired and it was incredibly hot we were given our room key and found breakfast was served until 10am so we were able to eat.
The room was of a good size, clean, with air conditioning and a fridge. When we went for breakfast the food was very continental, but there was something for all tastes, fruit/fruit juice, yoghurt, cereal, bread/rolls in different varieties, cheeses, meats, boiled egg and cakes.
The evening meal had a reasonable variety of cooked dishes, lots of salad options and dessert, quality and quantity were good. We were taken aback by not hearing any other English spoken whilst in the dining area, we heard only German and Dutch which concerned us a little, however it soon became clear that although in the minority there were other British people there.
We were offered a room change before we had unpacked as the young receptionist felt she could offer us a room with a nicer view, on looking we decided to change as the first room looked out onto a coutyard area and the second onto the mountains.
All the staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was cleaned daily although swept it was not mopped which would be the only negative comment, towels were washed when you indicated you wanted them done.
The entertainment was limited and not everyday but that in its self was quite nice you could sit in the bar area in a relaxed atmosphere or if you wanted other entertainment you could wander about the resort and find some.
We found the location suited us very well, the beach was right on the doorstep but if you wanted to get out and about the local bus stop was at the end of the drive.

The problems start when it is time to eat. Firstly the restaurant is far to small for the number of guests resulting in a lot of waiting around for a free table, and probably due to the overcrouding it is very hot and uncomfortable.
We stayed for 14 nights and basically the menu is the same every day barring the odd change in meat. Spagetti bolognese was on the menu 13 times during our stay. We found our best option was to eat out which obviously costs.
We did make a complaint to our rep on day 4 to which she replied that there was nothing she could do. We then complained to her again on day 11 to which she said we could swap our eveing meal for lunch time meals, which were far better. At this stage we were livid as it had taken our rep 11 days to tell us this.
Basically I would never advise staying at this hotel half board unless your going away for a diet. Also a note of caution they only have a certain number of rooms with air con so the will try to bribe you into taking one without.
For your own good dont accept they are very very very hot day and night.
