Reasons for trip


I stayed here for a week in May with my partner and was a bit concerned as the only rooms available were 'family room' in the annex over the road. I needn't have worried because as it was out of season there were only a handful of families staying there and the room was very quiet. The balcony overlooked the smaller pool and the room was massive….more like a junior suite. The cleaners came every day and left a 2ltr bottle of water we had kitchen facilities also so was able to have a good old cuppa whenever we liked. We went all inclusive, you had to pay for drinks after 23.00 but we had usually had enough and gone to bed by then anyhow. The food was plentiful, varied and I must say very good! There was never a shortage of loungers by the pool and if you were more adventurous there was an adults only rooftop solarium where you could go au naturalle……..I opted out of this one. The bars were well tended and there was the usual holiday hotel entertainment in the evenings as well as the hard working animation team staging events throughout the day for the more active minded. Unlike some places they did not push if you said you didn't want to take part. I would definitely go back to this hotel again and preferred it to The Gran Castilla Resort wich is rated 5*.
