Lots of the elements of the hotel were very good…

Lots of the elements of the hotel were very good however we would`t visit again. We were underwhelmed by the rooms – they felt very basic especially for the money we paid. The buffet food was often on the cold side to warm and that applied to breakfast and dinner in the evening. Service around the pool was ok but sparse and not on a level that again you would expect for the money.

We loved this hotel – the architecture & especially the staff…

We loved this hotel – the architecture & especially the staff. They were all so warm, welcoming and accommodating. The only issue was that only the Blue Monkey & one other restaurant was open + the nightly buffet so the Super VIP Half Board was not quite as useful as we`d hoped at this time of year. We`d love to go back to this hotel.

Fabulous…
