We arrived for one week with our two year old daughter and had a wonderful time. Our sea view room was very spacious with a great large bed (good when your child shares it with you most nights!) and a very good, clean bathroom. The room had a disappointing mini-bar (nothing inside except water we had to pay for) but... More

I read all the trip advisor comments before going and here is my view: excellent for families as there is the option of a 4 minute walk to the beach or outdoor heated swimming pool for toddlers such as in my case. Choose a ground floor self catering apartment as easy to access to swimming pool and nice big verandah... More

Although the vast majority of reviews offered great praise for the childrens club I found it somewhat lacking in organisation. The personnel within... More

Wouldn't necessarily call it 5-star: some rooms are a little tired, but the location, service and amenities make up for it to a degree. You should definately ask for a sea-view room...
