Kids enjoyed being in the pool, but no space around it, very crowded and rowdy. Beach, however was quiet and clean. Location was quiet - which was not a problem, however... More

We stayed here for one week. There were 8 of us. It is definitely a family hotel. If you are going as a couple during summer holidays wouldn't advise. We had a great time. The accommodation was good. The shower was powerful and the bath was made for two! Food was plentiful and drinks on tap as we were all... More

The evening's entertainments were provided in French and Spanish only so, we could not really enjoy the evenings shows. There was a poor selections of food. I liked spa area and... More
