The first year we went with our children(young adults) and their boyfriends and a couple of their mates all together 7 of us. There was entertainment every night and we enjoyed it so much that me and the wife went back on our own the following year.
We enjoyed it again and thought it was great value for money so we booked it again for this year.
Boy how things have changed, the barman recognised me again this year and shook my hand and the first think he did was apologise for the lack of English people staying in the hotel as it was full of Spanish.
It looks like they are now catering for the Spanish OAP.
What entertainment there was, Only 2 nights out of the seven outside people came in, One was the acrobat man who has been there for the last 3 years and one night a woman came in with speakers-amps etc ,I thought at last a singer , turned out to be a Spanish singer.
The Spanish enjoyed it as after the bingo the games and music played was all towards them, unfortunately the catering was also aimed a lot more towards the Spanish with Fish most nights.
All in all we won't be booking up for next year, the Hotel is still nice and in a great location, the rooms are clean (apart from a few ants), towels are changed every day, the staff are helpful and the food is still good for the money but we ended going out to the pub most nights to watch TV rather than listen to the same old music and be surrounded by OAP waltzing around the dance floor and walkways.

We were in the old part of the hotel in a tiny room, with a tiny "double" bed and a miniscule bathroom which had badly repaired cracked tiles and rusty fittings.
We could not fault the cleanliness and the towels were changed regularly.
As for the food, there was a very limited choice, especially with the sweets. There seemed to be a better choice at lunchtime, (when we only wanted a snack), rather than in the evening, (when we wanted a full meal.) What we had was OK, except for the beefburger which was not cooked in the middle. Staff were slow to refill empty trays of food, meaning that you sometimes got half your meal, then had to wait for the other half.
Mealtimes were a highlight as we were actually able to get a glass to drink from ! Every drink you got from the bar was served in small plastic beakers, whether you wanted beer, wine, brandy, etc. We could understand this if we were round the pool, but in the evening surely they could provide glasses.
The hotel's location was excellent, with direct access to the beach. However when we were there the beach and sea were full of seaweed.
Most of the hotel staff were OK.
Again, the entertainment was mainly for children and almost all provided by the in house Spanish staff, and was definately not for us.
All in all we will not be returning to this hotel, and if this is what to expect from a 3 star all inclusive, then we will not be choosing this option again.
