Fab 3nite stay
Hotel service was fab from start to finish of our 3 nite stay. Food was great a little cold at times but that would be due to us being late mostly 😄 great selection tho and beers wines etc was just class. We were lucky to get an upgrade on arrival with a pool view. Entertainment at the pool and at nite was great craic. Fabulous singer on monday nite past she could sing anything had my daccing on my balcony while getting ready for out in the town.

Overall our stay was ok. The rooms had been updated but there were areas that needed some attention (ex. Pool, some lounge chairs). The ceiling in our room had some water damage and it looked like mould/mild dew had started to grow. We had ants on our garden patio. We found cockroaches near the end of our stay. The cleaning ladies didn’t come until late afternoon and didn’t take dishes (not something they do). Everyone was nice but customer service and going above and beyond was not something

Hotel was spotless with staff constantly cleaning. Staff were amazing and nothing was a problem. The room we had was a delux view no 549 on top floor and the view was breathtaking. We did all inclusive and cannot find fault with any of the food. Good selection. Wine and beer on tap. You are just about ten minutes from the dunes which are amazing. Great Hotel and great staff. We will definitely be back. Brian

Pools and water slides were great, unfortunately not heated, so meant adults didn't want to spend too long in, but children didn't seem to mind. All inclusive was good, but pls list ingredients or have vegetarian or no nuts signs by foods Reception staff were great, especially on last day when my airport transfer didn't turn up!

Great family resort
Great family resort most suitable for people with young children. If you want quiet need to request a room furthest from pool area. This does entail a long walk to main reception and dining areas. Food at buffet was adequate and met expectations for an all-inclusive 4-star hotel. The coffee and tea from the machine was terrible. Additional charges for a decent cup of coffee at the bar or to activate the in-room safe was not acceptable, something we have not encountered in similar properties Two nights of entertainment were of a high standard and one night below standard. Would not recommend this hotel for people without children.

Perfect for families with young children
This all-inclusive hotel is fabulous for families, not ideal for adults or a romantic get-away. Rooms are very spacious, well-equipped and nicely decorated. Service was very friendly. The location is very good for walking to the Masapalomas Dunes and Yumbo Shopping Centre. The food was decent and there was quite a good selection, though not always served hot. The shower had very low water pressure and changed from very hot to cold but maybe because my room was on the 5th floor (that's one way to conserve water!) There were so many families and noisy children running around the dining room that it was difficult to have a conversation. At the pool, it was impossible to find an empty chaise unless you left towels there early in the morning. Our biggest complaint were the unexpected extra charges. Never in our very well-travelled lives, have we been asked to pay for the use of the room safe - 2 EUR per day. The coffee in the dining room was undrinkable, whichever one you chose in the machine, and for "real" coffee at the bar, there was a charge. (So instead we went to cafes outside the resort). The mixed cocktails were ridiculously sweet and also undrinkable. Wines on tap were not good and all other drinks were considered premium, including cava, for an extra cost. Overall, I recommend it for families with young kids. They will love the kids' club, pools, playground and shows in the evenings.

Good hotel well positioned
Good hotel, staff were all very nice. We had a garden room which in our view wasn't worth the upgrade cost but that was a personal view. Bar and catering staff very nice but the buffet wasn't great, there didn't seem to be a lot of variety between the days, food didn't seem to be renewed quickly enough leading to gaps and queues
