    First class Hotel & Service

    We decided to spend our 2nd Week here as the last hotel was was quite . We were not disappointed in the slightest as the hotel was beautiful and lively . We had a Nice 3rd floor room facing out to the sea and pool area . My partner who is a fussy eater always found something to eat in the buffet restaurant . Evening entertainment was always Great but normally lasted about 45 mins then a singer came on which was very good and entertaining . The sportsbar was always lively and had hot snacks 24 hours and also cold snacks . Freddy the barman in the evening entertainments bar was A great bar man and also good lad to chat too . You really could not fault any of the staff . Another waiter out at the piano bar was very good but i can't remember his name perhaps christian ? All and all we will definitely visit this hotel very soon .
