Overall: Good Points: Great Hotel, Great food, Great All-round. Would go again but only if looking to relax as there’s not much to do (my parents would like it).
Bad points: No Internet unless you sit in reception. No entertainment (but then again it’s always pants on holiday). Long walk to Bar Street which is now a bit of a ghost town. Knocking a star off because of lack of internet and also if your not a stickler for feeding times there’s nothing to get in-between meals if you’ve missed a slot.
We arrived about 10pm after a flight with extra leg room (we didn't pay for it, only paid the £15 to sit together which is a bit of a con but turned out well). The Thomas cook rep that met us (think he was called Paul) was the most miserable rep we had ever encountered he proceeded to drop people off at their hotels, but almost all the others were at the far end of the island meaning we had to double back on ourselves making the bus ride a bit longer than would have hoped for. We then checked in at the hotel who because we had missed dinner had plated us up a bit of salad and sat us in an un-lit area of the restaurant so was difficult to see what we were eating (not sure why it was like that as the rest of the stay was fine). We were given a timetable of restaurant / bar opening times - the bar closes at 11pm for all inclusive and you have to pay for anything else after that. We found the choose of drinks more than enough for an all inclusive, people that moan on here that there's not enough choose need to stop booming AI. the young lasses serving we're friendly always smiling, but the blokes ever cracked a smile (however the staff over the road at the other hotel were all allot more friendly). It was. Ever more than a couple of minutes wait at the bar, the only time we struggled was on "romance night" where some crappy band was in and singing all night and that was it as far as entertainment went. It was difficult to get served that night because the bar has stools all way round it and stupid people decided to sit there drinking not making room for anyone else to get served. We were given a combination for the safe in our room, however the safe we had required a key, we explained to reception we needed a key, but they just laughed and told us we were not following the instructions properly. They did send the maintenance guy the next morning who had bunch of keys but didn't look like he could get any to work, he didn't speak any English but said something about returning at 3pm so back we went to our room for 3pm but no one showed so we were without a safe all week which wasn't a major problem as the resort was fairly safe there wasn't any random people off the street walking around and we were on the second floor so no one could get in through the balcony (we had sort of a view of the sea, but was blocked by trees, I think we had paid £60 for a better room, but didn't seem to be worth it). The fridge was re-filled most days even with a couple of bottles of beer and the tea/coffee too. The room was spot on, except the bed was much too hard for me. Air conditioning worked, but all the electric went off when taking the room key out (at least the fridge stayed on, unlike turkey last year when taking the key out the fridge didn't work!). The shows was a walk in wet room thing with glass frosted panels which was novel to see who your sharing with shower, the toilet door was frosted glass too, you couldn't see through it only hear want was going on in there. No noise from next door room above or anywhere else so got plenty of sleep and were women by the maids most mornings. We only made it to breakfast twice once on the first day when we had to get up to see Andy the rep on our welcome meeting which was a waste of time, he just kept telling us to rate him excellent so be could spend the winter repping in Barbados! We didn't book any excursions as the only one we really liked the look of was on the day we were flying home. We did book a 4 island boat trip from one of the kiosks on the square (ok if you want to sit on a boat all day) you had to pay for drinks, but we're fed a BBQ consisting of a frank ferret sausage (had already eaten several for breakfast). The Italian in the hotel is worth booking, too much food though! The Chinese was good too, however service was slow, but then again what do you want from an AI? Dam good I think!
Great if you have kids or old. Not for young couple 28 & 30. Wouldn't go again. Argassi is ok for families with young kids or retired people. Laganass was good for the night life, plenty of bars to keep you happy for a few nights if your aged 16 - 24
Hotel Lanzasur 2018. Nice hotel, but you can only connect one device to the Wi-Fi. The beds are quite hard and no air con in the room made it difficult to sleep. The self service all inclusive was good except the lager on tap was a bit rank and no matter how much of the stuff you drank didn't get you drunk (Just up to the toilet all night missing!).
