This is a beautiful resort and as others have said the staff are just wonderful - making you feel so welcome, remembering special things about you, and ready to have a laugh. Everything is very white, the floors, the walls, the area around the pool. I enjoyed the aqua gym with Guido who is a true professional but kept us... More

The most amazing stay we have had. The hotel is warm and welcoming from the minute we arrived to the send off at end of our holiday, making us feel so truly pampered.
