The Grill bar is fantastic with some lovely food if somewhat cold at times. The staff on the bar were brilliant. Welcoming and could not do enough for you. Even when busy and considering the pay they were exceptional. So why the low score you ask. Well, the main hotel was seriously poor, the staff in shops, security, entertainment and reception were generally rude, aloof and unhelpful. Way too expensive for all inclusive and food probably 3 star at best. Pools never busy we never went in either as there is no wind protection anywhere and the main pathway cuts through so there is zero privacy. Builders on site and gardeners etc were very obvious with their stares and comments about attractive females. Thier eyes on stalks and hands on their genitals even at points. The most beautiful of sunsets even did not make up for the constant barrage and noise from bikini beach club which was a blot on the landscape and encouraged people to get absolutely wasted which of course came with the usual negatives of fighting etc which you would maybe expect in "shaggermuff". The daytime entertainment on site was really poor, and there are zero sporting facilities etc. In the evening it was a little better but was all very samey. The main town of Santa Maria was simply horrific. Half building site, half slum and the super markets which are awful and stick barely anything yet charge higher than Sainsbury's prices for NISA quality goods.
