Well were do I start ?
Here goes then, I am as honest as I can be.
The hotel was very clean, the only mess I saw was down to the people, gready brits getting very drunk due to all-inclusive and being sick in toilets. Hotel very quick to stop serving drunken people and very quick to clean up mess.
Rooms were basic, as the brochure says, but clean and shower always warm. "be careful of the glass balcony, can be very embarrassing".
The food is what you would expect of from being in a different country, if you like fish then your sorted, some nights it was just salad and chips (lots of chips)due to menu not suiting my taste. Food was good, just a bit repentative the second week. I am a fussy eater but always found somethign to eat, Pork chops/steaks, beef steaks, lamb chops/steaks, spag bol and fish loads of it. Somedays I couldn't face the menu but we ate out across the road 6 euros for chicken curry & chips/rice.
There was a snack bar that was also stocked up, self service of Pizza, Burger, Chips (yes chips)hotdogs and salad bar, "now the snack bar was the only complaint I have about the hotel, it shut at 18:00 and not 23:00 as shown in the brochure" If open til midnight 90% of hotel complaints would disappear.
The enterainment was really good, just one bad show, if you don't like cheesey shows then its not for you, I really enjoyed the shows. The kids clubs were good what I say of them and the adult daytime sports was brill. The entertainment team worked very hard and make a difference to your holiday (some very funny shows).
On a whole, Hotel very good,rooms basic but clean, food good/average, drinks very good (not shy with meassures), entertainment brilliant. If you have a young family don't be put off by the reports.
The only time I got a bit angry was the due to the people on holiday and not the hotel, people leaving mess in toilets, and people being very greedy and bad mannered in dining area, but thats what we expect of English/British abroad. All-inclusive seems to turn some people into Pigs and there was plenty at the Somoa.
If you are reading this and you have booked a holiday with the Somoa then you should have a good time, but please don't expect 5 star.

No air con, but not needed, room size good and although we never got involved with the entertainment, there was plenty on offer for all. Food was ok in that there was always something that could be eaten, although after 4 days we tired of the routine!.
Close to beach, and lovely friendly staff. There was a sickness bug at time, which we suffered but the staff were great at helping us, and I in no way blame the hotel.

Food was average there was never anything you couldn't eat always a variety however people still moaned about it.
The hotel was clean however the rooms weren't cleaned very well.
Staff were very friendly.
All rooms SHOULD have air conditioning we hired a fan but it wasn't that great.
The one big moan I have about this hotel was the kids club one afternoon my 4 year old son was in the club which shut at 5pm I went back at 4.50pm to collect him to find the doors into the club were locked and none of the staff around luckily he was near by playing with some of the older kids but this is not right he should not have been left on his own I did complain but the hotel didn't seem to bothered and I was given no explanation.

entertainment team are fantastic especially Kevin! The food was nice and always hot but could be repetetive, but there was always something we liked!
The pool was nice but you did have to be up before 8.30 to have the chance to get a sunbed!
The evening entertainment was brilliant, the kids disco was brilliant and the team got everyone involved. The adult shows were really good with different acts each night including magic show, grease tribute, four tops tribute etc.
We would definitely visit this hotel again ... a big hi to Leroy, Vicky and Reece if you read this!!!
