Hotel was clean, maid was excellant
carpets/ decor could do with updating
Staff superb and freindly , maybe because most people there werent your typical lager louts
Entertainment we didnt stay but as returning watched some very interesting acts as walking slowly past.
Line dancing to M Jackson was a new one on me.
Les Dawson on the piano was a miracle as i thought he had passed away.(deep respect for les)
Infact les played the piano better.
Could not comment on the sunbed rush as spent every day on beach but the pool area seemed busy.
Food the usual but unlike a lot of complaints if you go to spain or other countries you cant expect a proper fry up if thats what you want so eat wot you can and enjoy

When we arrived, our first impression of this hotel were that it looked very smart. The porters were on hand to take the guests luggage to their rooms if this was required. The reception staff were very friendly on check in.
Our rooms were very spacious. In ours were my wife, myself and our 6 year old daughter. We had a pool and sea view which was absolutely gorgeous. There was a tv in the room which showed english channels aswell as some sky and spanish. Also in the room was a fridge, this operated off the electric so you would need to keep the key card in. My advice is take an old Boots Advantage or some other type of card to leave in all the time. The air conditioning was great although it could get a little noisy so change the setting of the fan to quiet and you will be ok. Rooms cleaned every day, one word of advice if you put up a washing line the maids will take it down, we just took ours down in the mornings.
Well, as previous reviews have said it was NOT VERY GOOD. Infact there was no section for children, when we asked the rep why this was his reply was that the spanish say that if the children are hungry then they will eat anything. What a load of rubbish. It was very hard to put a meal together unless you just wanted salad. The desserts were very poor but if you like creme caramel or mousse you will be ok.
The great thing is you do not have to get up at the crack of dawn if you want a sunbed. The gates did not open until 9.30am so it was great. The pool area is quite spacious with ample sunbeds. The pool bar was VERY EXPENSIVE.
My advice is if you need to ask the Direct Holidays rep Big Al for anything then DON'T, go to reception first they are more helpful. When you go to your welcome meeting he will forget to tell you about the Zoo, the Adventure Golf and the Castle. I think these are must see places.

Breakfast is a joke as its a free for all and once you have waited to get to the dishes you can spend a few mins chasing the greasy egg around the greasy pan. Thats if you can get it on your fun sized plate, not sure if it was a saucer for my tea at first but no its the plate for breakfast. Dinner is in a different area, nicer setting but not alot of choice.
Outdoor pool is nice but their is more deep areas than shallow and the sunbeds are always the same in most hotels. Gates open at 9.30 so take your stuff with you to breakfast there start queuing about 8.45 to 9. In door pool is warm but it has a dirty brown ring around it (not good for a 4 star)
Ha Ha Ha....forget it.
Great about 15 mins walk to the harbour with bars, shops and places to eat along the way. Beach is 2 secs away.
The resort is very nice with lots to do and a visit to the zoo is a must its worth every penny. Drinks out and about are not over priced little less than back home.
We will be going back to the resort as a week was not long enough, loads we did not do but I would not be stopping in this hotel again. Still had a great holiday

After visiting I can honestly say that we have stayed in many 4 star hotels, but this was not one of them.
The hotel is clean the rooms are great with nice views of pool / sea and the staff are very helpful.
The hotel loses a star on the food front, breakfast is a complete joke! you get a plate the size you would put a cob on to have with soup!!!
The most you can place on the plate is 1 toast 1 egg and a few beans, you can have two plates or 2 /3 journeys to the buffet.
It's very basis and you just grab a table fetch your own knives / forks etc.
the area is very small were the buffet is and you have to be careful not to bump into people.
On the plus side, loads of outside tables catch the early sunshine very nice for breakfast.
evening meals nice food but very limited with choice, plenty cold meat and salad, plus 3/ 4 hot meals mainly meat in some sort of sauce, chips / soup/ rice.
One night my wife was eating the soup and found some wire wool in it!!!
Shouted the head waiter over and he just picked it up and smiled? if this had beed a small child it could have choked on the wire.
entertainment, very poor same organ and sax every night.
The hotel as a good hairdresser from Hull so if any ladies fancy a wash and blow 15 euro's.
Hotel drinks and food a bit pricy tendered to go out most nights.
Pool opens at 9 - 30 on the dot plenty of lido's.
we used the ones on the left side get the sun from just after 10am then all day, dont need to rush for
these they all run for the ones in the sun
The hot pool is lovely and warm if the weathers bad very relaxing.
There is no day or night entertainment for kids strictly adult hotel

It has a great location near to the beach and promenade and is about a 10 minute walk into town. There are pleanty of bars and places to eat just on the promenade so we did not feel the need to go Half Board.
Staff were ok the normal Spanish not over friendly but helpful netherless.Breakfast was buffet style and adequate.
To sum up good value for money and good location.

Location of hotel was great for going to beach only a very short walk.
Staff at reception for the two weeks we were there never made us feel welcome!
As for head waiter who showed us to table he just signed to us from a distance to come forward.
There was a man who played a piano in bar every night which nobody took any notice of it was awful!!!!
Food wasn't the greatest unless you liked pork. Food that was supposed to be hot was barely warm.... breakfast you get by on .the fried eggs were always swimming in grease and cold. Croissants and toast was nice....
This hotel is four star but should be three because of staffs manner and food.
