The food was superb, freshly cooked and plenty of it. The all... More

Listed as 4star, but 1 week before we were due to fly out, we got an email to say it had been downgraded to 3+star. We would not have booked this if we had know before, but we thought we would see how the holiday went. The rooms were clean and cleaners came 6 days a week. Food was ok... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks and loved the food and staff. Everyone we spoke to was delighted with their stay. Some rooms could do with an upgrade but we enjoyed our stay enough to be booking again for 2015.
