Paradise revisited

We came to this resort 10 years ago to celebrate a big birthday and returned this year to enjoy an even bigger one.. We weren’t disappointed and it was good to see some welcome additions such as the Vista bar and there had also been some improvements to the Drifters bar area. The food and drink is excellent and it would be fair to say the crispy bacon is the best ever. Absolutely no problem getting a sunbed on the superb beach and we were treated all day long with drinks,fruit and ice lollies.There is also an excellent choice of water sports. Yes the bathrooms are a bit tired but this didn’t detract from our enjoyment of the resort which is very special. The staff are lovely and there is plenty of good banter in the Vista bar. The only downside was trying to get take advantage of the dine around facility in Waves. It was impossible to get in to the Asian restaurant -we tried for a week without success . There definitely needs to be some expectation management here. I can honestly say it won’t be another 10 years before we return.
