Me and my wife and our 2 children aged 11 and 14 stayed at the hotel from 6th - 18th August 2011 all inclusive.
We booked independently getting our flights with Easy jet and the hotel through Low Cost Holidays all in all much cheaper than booking through Thomas Cook.
On arrival to Ibiza we got a taxi which cost 27 euros to the hotel and took about 20 minutes.
We checked in with no problems and we stayed in Almond room 3217 and the room was of a decent size with a hidden kitchenette in it containing a fridge etc.
The room was clean but maybe could of done with a bit of an update on the décor but was pleasant enough.
The sun bed situation was not as bad as a lot of the reviews have stated, yes there were towels put out of a night but I was up 7.30am most mornings and got 4 beds and 2 umbrellas in the same location everyday. After a few days the management made a new rule that towels could not be put on beds till 8am again this was no real problem as I just got up at 8am and got my usual place so unless you want to be right next to the pool don’t worry.
The food was of a good standard and always topped up when getting low, the breakfast was really good full English or continental you name it they had it. Lunch and Dinner were good always a different choice and well cooked and I am a very fussy eater.
But like all the all inclusive hotels I have stayed in at times it can get busy but this is to be expected at peak times isn’t it?
The pool was excellent with 2 life guards patrolling it and there was a daily quiz, water aerobics and all the usual sports and activities conducted by the lovely Kat and the Thomas Cook team and varied music played for most of the day.
The evening entertainment was a bit hit and miss to be honest, bingo every night which was fine, if you have young children its excellent as it was a kids disco etc, but most of the time the Thomas Cook team did the adult shows which was a little bit tedious at times but they do have a few outside acts that were decent and the Thomas Cook team gave it their all an worked extremely hard.
We didn’t wander out much but the beach is nice and is about 200 yards if you turn right out of the reception.
If you turn left out of the reception about 15 minutes down the road are plenty of shops and bars which looked fine.
All in all we had a very enjoyable holiday and we would go back. Don’t be put off by some of these reviews as lets be honest you will always get moaners and miserable people were ever you go!
