As always a very warm welcome from everyone at Sentido Oriental Dreams Resort. This was our 15th return visit and therefore the majority of staff are more like family members and there mission is to ensure all guests have a very pleasant holiday experience. The hotel is currently having a major overhall and although there is some minor disruption, I'm sure it will be well worth it when the refurbishment is complete later this year. The animation team led by Adam are a credit to the hotel. They are always friendly, courteous and go about there business with a smile ... on there face - unlike some of the loud and genearally annoying 'Going Team' (animation team for the Italian guests). Why do they have to shout all the time? Once again another very relaxing and enjoyable vacation, cant wait ti return in June. Steve and Terri - UK read hotel review

In general we like everything. Delicious food and good personnel. Weather in this period is very good but sometimes it was windy. The hotel and location is good. I want to say more about the animation team. The girls are very good especially Natasha. She is really well done. She can speak Russian, Polish and even can find common ground with Germans and and Czechs. It seems that she know all languages. If speak about guys, the best I like Max the athletic build animator at the same time he is cultural, gentle and it was pleasant to speak with ... him. The medal has two sides. I am talking about Egyptian Mizo. He is a rude animator. Hey, you have 5 star hotel, why you hired Mizo. It's hard to relax at the resort when there is such man. He always something murmurs and cries out, taking other people's things, he took my cigarettes without permission. I made the remark to him but he continues to bully. It was hard to watch our program or sing karaoke, he always jump in front of us and substituted overview. Good luck. read hotel review

    The animation team made sure there were many activities; stretching in the morning followed by a ball game. In the afternoon the programme was varied; one day you could go and have a belly dance course, in which I participated , followed by aerobics, other days there were ball games in the afternoon. In the evening they would put on a show for the entertainment of all guests, which they did great.
