No big confusion of people, no kids, quiet pool, etc. Pool is a little old fashioned, but sized enough for the number of guests, and the water is always warm. The rooms are spacious and with a modern decoration. Beds are extremely confy... More

Reposted so I could reply to the Manager Mr Gaspar response. Mix up with room not a good start and reception manager was only interested in showing us "proof" they were right which is not good customer service! So we had a room overlooking a path and houses not what we expected so MAKE SURE you book a pool view... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights (during the week) and it was close to perfect--adults only, so no loud children running around or hogging the pool. Pretty much everyone else was couples, and they were quiet in public areas, so it was really tranquil even eating breakfast, etc. I did hear a lot of noise from other... More
