Food was ok,but selection very limited, but we do like salads. desserts were plentiful, kids menu non-exsistant, but fed our little girl at snack bar or went to faro 2 for nuggets and chips.
The hotel is totally geared to looking after the germans/dutch and spanish, down to entertainment. A
lot of germans/dutch there when we were there, and alot of spainish arrived for the weekends! The kids club was good, 10.30-13.00hrs, 15.30-17.00hrs.
We only paid

Our arrival was quick and easy and to my delight we had been put in Block C which I asked for when booking the holiday this is i now know because the block is furthest away from the main entertainment part so its nice and peacful in the evenings.
The apartment was quite small I thought and was a little dark inside wouldnt be any good for larger families and we did struggle with space but it was clean and did its job!
Food was ok nothing special but we didnt have any problems eating it although they do need a bit more selection for kids (well a lot really there was hardley anything) but we managed!!!
Hotel had a lot of other nationalities there as well.
we didnt use the hotel kids club so i cant comment on that nor did we see much of the entertainment apart from a couple of mini discos!!!
The complex is quite a way out from the beach and shops the hotel does have a courtsey bus to the beach daily and we also found taxis really cheap and easy to get (there was always a few waiting outside reception) the beach is ok but Ive been to nicer. There are plenty of shops but failing that for 3 euros you can taxi into Playa del Ingles were there is a lot more going on.
Also not far from the hotel is holiday world which is fab for families and cheap as well we spent a few nights here and the kids loved it.
All in all we had a good time the complex is clean and the staff were friendly but saying that we would not return to this hotel but more for the fact that we like to try different places.

The apartment was basic and some of the furnishings had seen better days.
Staff were unfriendly and service with a smile was not on the agenda.
The pool area was very crowded, lots of noisy children and the entertainment was reminiscent of 1960's Butlins.
All drinks were served in plastic tumblers and there was only ever one bar attendant on duty at a time. To get a drink in the evening, not only did you have to negotiate the "Phoenix Night" style cabaret, there was a mile long queue to get to the bar. We spent as little time here as we possibly could.
This was to have been a relaxing New Year break but the strains of the tannoy summoning the kids'club each morning was more than sufficient to send us scurrying to the taxi rank.
I would definitely NOT return here nor would I recommend it unless your idea of a fun holiday is mixing with holiday makers British and foreign who like to communicate at the tops of their voices and run you down with baby buggies. And by the way if you fancied a quiet night in, the satellite TV only broadcast in German after 8p.m.

Drinks were ok always served in plastic glasses apart from in the dining room. They only semed to have the basic rum, gin, whisky, vodka, beer and a couple of cokctails there was no equivalent of Bailys.
Lovely gardens and it was all quite clean, 3 pools all ok and we only saw 1 cockroach during the 9 days. Most of the satff were happy and helpful just a couple of grumpy ones.
Evening entertainment was a disaster all done in 3 languages as there were an awful lot of Germans on the complex and a few Spanish. Until you've played bingo in all 3 languages you haven't lived! It was all very amateurish and I would not recccomend it. People seemed to have fun with the daytime activities,pistol shooting, archery, water polo etc.
Hotel was a bit isolated, beach about a 20 min walk away but there was a free bus during the day. Taxis were cheap so it wasn't really a problem but could add a lot to the cost of your holiday if used all the time.
I would go again if the price was right. We stayed at the Holiday Village Viva in Majorca earlier in the year and this wasn't a patch on that but we paid a lot less here. I think you get what you pay for.

The onsite kiddies playground is not very good for anyone under 5 as the climbing frame is very high and not well guarded, I had to go up with my 2 year old daughter. The sand in the playground is a bit dirty too.
The all inclusive drinks are fantastic, beware of the cocktails they are lethal, I had to be "put" to bed one night after one too many!! The green oasis cocktail is beautiful as is the pina colada, they do not measure the amount of alcohol though so watch out!
I found the staff to be pleasant. As our daughter was just turned 2 she was marked down as a child and therefore they did not have a cot in the room for us when we arrived at 11.30pm so we had to wait until the following day to get one so be aware of this if your child is over 2 and you want a cot. They did get it to us the next day without us having to remind them.
The entertainment team were fantastic for our 2 year old there are around 4 members and they all take turns at being the clown for the kiddies disco every night which is nice for a bit of a change and probably nice for them too that they don't have to be clowns everynight!! They put on a brilliant show "Blues Brothers" they mimed to the music but it was fantastic and my husband couldn't keep his eyes off the pretty girls in the show! There is a mixture of nationalities staying at the resort, english, irish, scottish, dutch, german, so the Entertainment team work very hard introducing everything in all 4 languages, I am amazed at how fluent they are and how well it works out.
There was a fashion show another night but the clothes on sale afterwards were very expensive! There was a parrot show, beware of this man he forces the parrots into your hand and before you know it you are getting your photograph taken and it costs
