We were give one... More

Spent 3 nights at this wonderful resort earlier in January 2016 and was very impressed with the service and facilities. We initially had a booking misunderstanding having been quoted a different price but the management proved to be a highly service oriented one and they honoured their commitment so thumbs up for that. We were on a half board plan... More
