Very bad
The show was not very bad, but nothing special. The trainers looked bored and without life joy. But the worst thing is ugly atrempts to sell everything before, during and after show.

Scandalous - didn't even last until the restaurant opened
My girlfriend and I visited today and so bad was our experience I have been driven to write this review immediately.

We took a taxi from our hotel, The Gloria Serenity, down to The Rixos Premium and arrived at 9.30 to beat the hordes of tourist buses. The evidence was stark, even from the road, that Troy is very tired and poorly maintained. None of the wood looked freshly creosoted and the colours were dull and well worn. I had read negative reviews however I am a glass half full type of person and had convinced myself things would not be as bad as I had read. My first impression however was every bit as bad as I had feared.

From the road we fought our way to the entrance area which was essentially a small court yard dominated by a shop/stall selling tat. Fortunately our rep had described how to get our trip ticket redeemed for entrance pass, lunch tickets, and locker keys. Whilst this had been explained, it was, nonetheless, a crazy system. Holiday reps and punters battled for the attention of a handful of disinterested, sour faced workers standing randomly behind a desk offering little in the way of organisation or assistance. Once you collect another ticket from here you need to head to a further desk where you get your various paraphernalia for the day ahead.

To enter the park we headed through a turnstile and then walked through the changing rooms, with lockers, to the park. The changing rooms were, unsurprisingly, poorly lit, dour, and in need of a good clean.

We wandered around the park for 20 minutes or so whilst the 'attractions' opened and then headed for the main flumes accessed via the horse. Once we got to the top my girlfriend and I lingered about, feeling somewhat of an inconvenience, as the lifeguards engaged in some chit chat amongst themselves. My girlfriend was first off down one of the open slides and it was immediately evident that they has not been correctly prepared as she sat within a few feet of the top without moving. The lifeguard ushered her down and she squeaked and shimmied her way out of sight. The lifeguard looked over the side for a short while before sending me down. I also had my troubles moving but my extra girth allowed me to travel on. Low and behold however half way down I careered in to my prone girlfriend who was once again stuck. We managed to get to the bottom intact.

To allow the slides to 'warm up' we headed round the lazy eiver, which is an apt name as the water has no current and is indeed very lazy.

We decided to give one of the closed tubes a go and whilst we got down in one go this was a great example of the tired nature of the place. It is meant to be a 'black hole' but the paint needs a complete revamp as the light comes through quite clearly in many places. I understand that everything may not be perfect however the waning paintwork, loose banister rails and steps, closed attractions (unique master blaster slide), general lack of cleanliness (nappy in the pool as soon as we walked in clearly from the day before along with general debris), and complete lack of family friendly landscaping (parts of the park looked like a building site/scrub land).

Once we were back in the pool and the issues mounted up we decided to cut our losses and walk back to the hotel along the beach to enjoy the less grand, but far more impressive, water park in The Gloria Golf. The cleanliness and maintenance really is night and day to Troy. I would urge anyone staying in a Gloria hotel to enjoy their facilities and do not visit. Furthermore if I was considering the Rixos Premium (which I must stress I have not seen) I would be really concerned that Troy was typical of what you would receive. I am also grateful that I did not see the dolphins as I can only imagine the conditions would have been similar to that of the park and the tanks the fish pedicure took place in - dispicable.

I suggest everyone avoids this cash cow, or in this case horse, until those in charge make it worthy of attendance.
