When a chocolate gluten free cake was requested to celebrate a birthday, the most magical, magnificent cake emerged together with some alcohol free champagne to go with it. The children loved...

Grat location - safe and secure. 30 minutes from airport. Nice big room that was comfortable and clean. Staff excellent and very friendly and helpful. Lovely big pool that is well maintained. Only slight criticism is the fruit/yoghurt selection at breakfast but that should not stop you staying here.
