This massive hotel has a total of 7 pools and a trio of restaurants. And it’s all just 2 minutes’ walk from beach.
It’s all about the pool scene at this large hotel. It has 3 huge outdoor pools, an indoor one and 3 just for kids. Inside there’s a choice of buffet restaurants, and live shows every night.
La Pineda beach is just a 2-minute walk through the hotel grounds. And a 10-minute walk will take you to the tapas bars and shops in the centre of town.

If it was a 2 star...
The hotel is rated 4 star and at max it deserves only 2. At the receiption you will have to wait about 30-40 min at check-in. The rooms are clean but really basic. Internet is terribly slow and even 3G receiption on the mobile is poor. The food was the same at lunch and dinner, only the soup varied. The room was so cold that it took 2 hrs to heat up withe air blowing heating. The fan was so loud that we had to switch it off at night, so it got really cold over night again. At breakfast the coffee was really undrinkable and the healthy options for breakfast were very limited: just fruit, not even low fat milk. At check out another 30 min to be waited!More

Hi me and my partner took our 6 month son last sept we had a great time, we got a cot free and there's free bottled water. Not sure about your room as didn't have one like that but we had plenty of room even with the cot in a standard room. We got a pushchair fan from mothercare which came in handy for when he fell asleep and when we were walking as it could be sticky and hot. If you go with the aqua splash hotel and get free entry to the water park they have a big baby toddler pool, and the dolphins were great so worth going, the hotel does packed lunches which you can take instead of buying there. I hope this is helpful. We're going back in July hope you have a great hols.More

Last minute holiday booked for fun in the sun
My partner and I booked this holiday a week before we went as we both had some time off and thought why not. We went end of May 2014 and paid Â£400 each which was everything through an agency. It is probably the best Â£400 I have spent in a long time. Everything about this hotel was fab but I will raise a couple of issues you may find a long the way which I stumbled across and would have been nice to know. 1) there are 3 Hotels on the campus as well as holiday apartments. We stayed in the hotel closest to the water park (which was also part of our package -unlimited access) which would have been the only one I felt comfortable in. I am not sure if it was hotel 3 or 1 but I have a feeling was 3. (Do check!!) The other two were full of Russians and everyone we spoke to said they had issue with noise every night and the buffets were like cattle markets....so so busy. I must admit the other hotels did good entertainment also in the evenings but it was absolute madness. Nice to go back to our hotel of peace and quiet when ready to sleep. 2) even though it is a 4*, should you want to use the safe or ironing service it is all additional charges. (They do not have an ironing board you can use...only a person can do it for you for a rather large sum) 3) water park is about a 10 minute walk and not part of the hotel but does work closely with it. Get the unlimited access as I believe entrance per adult was about â¬30 each turn. We went in May and there was only about 20 people each time in the park...was like a private park for us. Amazing..we were kids those days. (Although I can imagine in height of season this place is stupidly busy!!) 4) food is very 'samey' but it is buffet and I guess that is what you expect. The alcohol was a good selection on the all inclusive . However, it was expensive for those not on a package so do be careful. As a Â£250 holiday may sound good but it won't end up that cheap. Altogether if you go for all inclusive (flights, transfer, food, drink and water park) you are onto a winner! Is a good laugh and can be as relaxing or active as you wish to make it. More
