There is constant and late hours bar service with kitchen service food on demand. The only downside - unless you want a quieter holiday - is the position in... More

We opt for half board at a cost of €15 a day and its well worth it as we love breakfast by the pool and our evening... More

The manageress makes the hotel, she works day and night and is very hands on. She always has a welcome smile and is always there to help. The rooms are kept clean... More
