Dear Kath, Unfortunately we had big pipeline broken in main pool, the one beside pool bar, last Sunday at evening. For security and safety of our guests we had closed it urgently. It will last around 4/5 weeks, because the paint of walls came off, so we had to drain the whole pool and repair all from the inside. We... More

Kids Club - Observations: Arrivals greeted with little enthusiasm and left to make use of one available activity - indoor soft play pen with ball pool. There appeared to be few resources, which were stowed rather than providing them for use. Colouring-in was invariably offered at some point, using simple photocopied pictures. All participants were offered to play one game,... More
