The title says it all. The complex was huge but after a couple of days it was easier than I first thought. There are 'buggy trains' to carry you around everywhere if you don't fancy walking. Towels are provided so more room in the case for other stuff. The choice of food was great. You could eat at any of... More

There were a few niggles when there, but the whole place was just so lovely, that these were only minor. So... Rooms... More
