Pools, a splash park, a bumper activities list, and loads of restaurants – this place has got the lot. It’s right on the beach, too.
This beachfront hotel ticks all the right boxes, with a great pool scene, 5 restaurants and a giant Aerial Adventure course. There are sports like kayaking, tennis and football as well.
Apartments received a makeover for summer 2014, so they’re in tip-top condition. They’re nice and big, too, with a lounge, kitchenette and outside space.

Would recommend this as a family hotel
Just back from a week at this hotel. We booked this as thought that children would be back at school and as we have done the whole children thing. Prefer a more peaceful holiday these days. The hotel is a very large complex and covers a lot of ground and for the size of the complex the swimming pools where far too small. The bungalow that we had was great and can see it being very good for families with children. The food was very good for AI with plenty of choice and the staff all very helpful. But for us it was a nightmare you could not get away from screaming children. In the main restaurant you had a quite area, but that made no difference to parents with young children and battles over meals, so no the quite area was anything but peaceful. The other restaurants where just as bad and I felt that it would have been nice as you get a ticket to eat in each one, once per stay if they had made maybe after 8pm adults only so that you could have had a peaceful mealtime. The 2 bars where the same no escape from screaming kids. So for us it would have been great if one of the bars did the same and after a certain time no kids. In the end we spent all our time away from the hotel so it was a waste going AI and a lesson learnt.More

Avoid room d33!!!
I stayed hear with my family for 2 weeks in September and i didn't like it one bit. We asked for a see view room and we got put smack behind a resturant so for the whole 2 weeks we couldnt enjoy our terraced because of the horrible smell of food.and talking about food it was just awfull. I thought i was gunna put weight on during this holiday but actually think I've lost a few pounds with refusing to eat the same rubbish every single day. We had ants in are apartment and noticed them every wear i went and the sleeping arrangements is just disgusting.2 single beds pushed up together in the bedroom is not acceptable. And the sofa beds in the room wer so uncomfy i didn't have 1 good nights sleep. There was not much to do entertainment wise apart from the blue moon bar every single night . I've got to give a big thumbs up to the entertainment team (louis,ric, and ant) as they wer really nice and god knows how they keep going all day. but to top it all off on our last day we went for breakfast.,only gone 20 mins to come back to our room and the whole place was flooded with 5 inch of water! !!! A panel in the bathroom ceiling had colapsed and water was just gushing out everywhere. Luckily we had got all our belonings and all packed up in our suitcases but bad news that all 4 suitcases and everything in them was soaked.we had 1 hour before our coach was picking us up so we couldnt dry anything.needless to say I've spent 2 days washing and drying every single piece of clothing we took. My children enjoyed it but it just wasnt for me.More

EXCELLENT! Could not fault! Fab time had by all..
We could NOT fault this hotel! absolutely superb two weeks spend there end of June to beg july. (So good we have booked for next year already!) Reading previous reviews, it seems people are keen to focus on any small negatives they found during their holiday. Of course a holiday resort will be busy during the summer holidays, of course you might have to queue for bars/restaurants.. And people will always, always try to get sunbeds early... from Start to finish the First choice reps were brilliant. Wonderful greeting when we arrived on the bus, all outside to meet you. And staff from the hotel in reception to say hello and offer canapÃ©s, sangria and soft drinks. speedy and efficient check in and help to our room with our cases. Our room was lovely, bright and clean. Small kitchen area was very handy, bathroom very clean. Bed comfy. And lovely travel cot for our son in our bedroom. Food was superb! Always a wide selection for even the fussiest eaters, with a great choice for children too. All food served in smaller serving dishes, rather than the large trays some buffets use so always fresh and hot, and they were constantly replenishing. Live station cooking various different meats every night. The green and grill was our favourite. But we did use all the restaurants and found them all fabulous! Ice cream, lollies, popcorn readily available all day. Along with drinks from bar and self serve too. all staff are excellent, always a smile and a hello. "High fives" for the kids, and giving out lollies and even small toys too. (Bouncy balls etc) Special mention to Nando in Green and grill - our son loved him! Lovely beach literally a stones throw from hotel and it is beautiful, water clear so you can see all the fishes in the shallow water. supermarkets and bars along beachfront. great walk along the front into playa blanca - aprox 15-20mins. Huge appreciation to the first choice reps/entertainment team they work immensely hard every day and night and always with a smile on their faces. From early morning to late at night. All in all is is a lovely hotel and we enjoyed it so much we are returning next year and taking our friends with us! More
