Plenty of things to do for the kids. Lovely swimming pools.. Good food and the beach is just down the road, 5 mins walk.. Golden sands.... More

The main things I look for in an enjoyable family holiday are good food, good entertainment and nice rooms and... More

The food choice as always very good. No adult entertainment.... More
