The complex is very nice but miles away from the airport and anywhere else.For anybody who just wants to laze around the pool,eating and drinking this is a ideal place but as its next to a duel carriageway it is a nightmare.We were told that by christmas 2009 they are expecting a pedestrian bridge being built across the road and by 2010 a railway station nearby.
The rooms are kept clean and tidy with clean sheets and towels and the maids are very friendly.
The food was good with a choice every day of pasta,meat and fish but we found it was usually cold in the snack bar area whether you went in their for snacks or your evening meal.If you have a early flight you can get a croissant and cup of tea before you leave but you have to book the night before and the rep forgets to tell you this.
My grandson was bored as he felt he was too old for the kids club and too young for the adult activities but he was encouraged to join and won a certificate for pool.The pool tables are 2 euros to play and only one out of three was working and at the end of the week that one was broke.
Its such a shame the hotel is where it is because if it was more central everything would be great.

I am a very fussy eater but always found something to eat at the restaurant which on occasion was not always piping hot, but I used the microwave in the dining rooom to remedy this.
The hotel is in a quiet area with the shingle beach a 15 minute walk away past some beautiful houses which look very expensive. The beach was quiet and the walkway at one point had free exercise machines to work off all that food and drink you had consumed at the hotel. There is also a lovely beachside bar where you can sit with a cool drink and watch the sun go down and just chill out.
I found the hotel staff mostly pleasant although there were exeptions, which I suppose you can experience anywhere.
Entertainment was poor most nights, although the Four Tops show was excellent. There is also bingo each night where you can win around 200 euros which is a good return if youre lucky enough.
I would return to this hotel again but I found a week was long enough.

The food was a little above average but very samey repeating meals all the time, it was ok though, couldn't of stood it for 2 wks! The drinks were brilliant, you could have almost anything all inclusive, even liquers. The beer was even very good, I don't usually like San Maguel, but it was great. The bar people would serve you with only 2 drinks although there was 3 of us - it was true what the person said before me how they treated the English, whilst we were there it must have been a Spanish holiday period, because most the the other holiday makers were Spanish (85%)- very ignorant, in all our time in going to Spain we've never had this before. Even the children not letting our grandson join them for a dance, he's only 4!!Even at the small pool, the Spanish children kept with there own people, wouldn't let English join them at all and most of them were pushy and loud. Sad really.
If theres ever a "next time" it will be out of season and a cheaper deal than we got, everyone else paid far less than us.

The cleanliness of the hotel is excellent.
The room service cannot be faulted.
I quite liked the location of the hotel as I had hired a car and was a great base for travelling around.
Now the bad bits:
On the 2nd day we were there we celebrated my wifes 60th birthday and went to the bar in the evening, whilst we were there 3 rooms in the hotel were burgled on the 2nd floor of the rear block (one of them being ours). My wife for the first time ever left her bag in the room and it was stolen with approx

Lovely spanish looking hotel, rooms was clean, and cleaned with fresh towels every day.
Food was good,buffet style always something you could have, with snacks in between, so if you missed a meal you didnt have to wait long for the next one, also good pack lunches on request.
I thought this was really good value for money.
staff was helpful, esp as thomson forgot to pick us up on the last day, to take us to the airport, we had to make our on way, found that stressful.
Will stay again at the hotel, maybe go with another airline...
