All Inclusive Heaven - shame about room Wi-fi
Posted Oct 16, 2016
We did have some apprehension about booking an all inclusive hotel. Still, we shouldn't have worried. The food variety was plentiful, and the quality excellent throughout our 1 week stay. Yes, the drinks included local beers & spirits, but this was perfectly acceptable to us.The main restaurant was a buffet, with lots of choice for breakfast, lunch & dinner. There were 2 other smaller restaurants adjoining the main one, an Italian and an Oriental / Asian venue, both of which have to be pre-booked 2 days in advance, just because of limited table numbers. We were fortunate having booked AI, on account of the falling value of the £. Had we have been eating out, we would have been facing another 20% on our meal bills.
The staff were generally all enthusiastic and friendly.
The bedrooms were large, the double beds comprised 2 singles pushed together, as is often the case on the Continent. We had a sea view, which was excellent. Traffic noise didn't bother us. It was nice to hear the sound of the breakers. The bath was a bit narrow, and the shower screen awkward to negotiate, but I am being a little fussy.
Spa treatments were pricey, but good. there was complimentary table tennis, tennis, and card tables. You had to pay for pool & other games. Main gripe was the expensive room Wi-Fi - 10 Euros per day! No thank you. We made do with the free service in the lobby, as did many other guests!
