Firstly, those who are complaining ... This is... More

Went here for my nephews wedding. Lovely country and location. Varied food offerings, I most enjoyed the Italian restaurant. Pool very cold. Large resort with a beautiful white, soft, fine, sandy beach. Service was hit and miss, but hey we were on holiday, everything was slow. Lots of selection available also at the buffet.
