Not normally the type to write bad reviews, normally look for the positives! However...
Went 17th may till 31st may for our 5th wedding anniversary, got there had a look around the site and the moment i got near the restaurant i got harrassed by the vacation team (timeshare) 3 times in about half an hr, they dont like taking no for an answer and tell you its not timeshare when it is, they also change there tops on a daily basis from green to blue or white just to confuse u! i regulary got harrassed for the first week, as u go onto the beach especially in the morning from about 8am onwards theres about 10-15 vendors constantly sitting/standing staring at the hotel just waiting for u to come off resort, can be very offputting! wanting to braid your hair or sell you something! again 3 or 4 nos with some of them before they will listen! am a patient person, but it can test your patience sometimes!
Hotel is very friendly, everybody is your friend and your brother/sister from another mother!
entertainment isnt that english friendly but then again its full of dutch german spanish dominican english canadian and american mostly! However for effort the entertainment team are very good considering they are there from around 10am until 1am!
waiter service is good and friendly! food isnt very good, not covered up and full of flies as well as birds chirping on the bread, keep off the icecream, cheese, salads egg and milk! pool isnt very clean either and not properly cleaned out so never went in! was struck down with sickness and dihorrea the 2nd week and still ill now, alot of people were ill while i was there including our rep! i took the advice of others on here and still got ill!
got told it was 4 star and looking towards a 5 star when i booked the holiday, however got there and told its a 3 star!
maid service is excellent!
2nd week spent most of it in the room due to illness! if u go all i can say is good luck!
