Had a really relaxing winter holiday at this hotel and planning on returning next year. The facilities were great - lots of things to do (gym, spa, massages, exercise classes, several pools, tennis, football etc ) and the beach/dunes nearby with many shops. There was ample room

This is the first time I have stayed in an A/I hotel for many years as I could not put up with the poor wine selection. I gave up drinking wine a few years back and now only drink cocktails when I am on holiday. Drinks, I drank four pinacoladas on my first whole day here. This

Very large hotel. Lots of sunbeds. Pools were a bit cold. Plenty of choice in restaurants but the food gets very repetitive, also there are lots of sparrows helping themselves to the buffet when they get an opportunity. Also some people don't use the hand sanitiser provided

The rooms with sea views are the swim pool rooms. They can sleep 3 They are separate to the main hotel rooms - which overlook the gardens and possibly sea at a distance. We have just been and stayed in the swim up rooms and had a fantastic week.

Are there pool towels supplied at reception or in the room ?
You will get a towel card when checking in and can exchange them by the pool for the towels and can get fresh ones everyday.

Inflatables are tolerated in the two main (central) pools, but not in the others. I believe they are not supposed to be allowed, but we have been a number of times and nobody from the hotel stops them. I think it's a case of the hotel not being spoil sports and letting you enjoy yourselves, as long as you don't abuse their use and do something dangerous. In fact the entertainment staff include their use in their games. Pools are freshwater.

"Rooms sea facing are sunny all afternoon into the evening the rooms above the swim up would have a great view and be very quiet."
"We paid a little extra and had a garden room which was nice, looking over the garden rather than next door hotels."
"If you want a quite room, please advise/arrange when booking, as there are sections of the hotel adjacent to the entertainment area."
"avoid rooms under restaurant or bar"
"Rooms Overlooking The Gardens Were Quiet"
