"Great hotel, shocking food for 4 stars".
Mixed feelings about this place. Hotel was clean and well maintained. 2 bed apartment was a great size and very comfortable and very clean. Hotel staff were very professional and friendly and interacted well with the kids and laid on as much entertainment as the kids were interested in. Hotel grounds however, were a little bit on the shabby side, (as was the general neighbourhood to be fair) no Mini golf course as advertised and two tennis courts were unusable due to lack of netting and dirt. Still expected to pay €10 per person to use them though. Pool area was clean and well maintained but merely functional. Biggest problem though was the food. For a four star hotel the food was disgusting. Buffet breakfasts were cold and unappetizing as well as the buffet meals in the supposed restaurant. Only way to describe the food there was "thrown together" I have to stress the point that I was not the only guest to feel the same was. most of the guests we chatted with felt the same way. "Great hotel, shocking food for 4 stars". Guests staying in the hotel on a full or half board were disgusted by the food on offer.

Lovely Holiday
We enjoyed our stay lovely holiday, the hotel could do with some updating in most areas i.e. bathrooms. The staff are excellent especially front desk so helpful in every way. A refurbishment would send this hotel to ten out ten again.
