We heard about Scoobys from Villa PLus as somewhere that would pick us up from the villa at the end of our holiday and as long as we had lunch at the bar we could stay there while waiting for our airport transfer from Resort Hoppa. The Scoobys vehicle turned up promptly and we had a very enjoyable afternoon using... More

Scooby's has a beautiful pool and plenty of outdoor seating - and crazy golf. It is also spotlessly clean with pleasant staff and well presented food. Very family friendly.

Unfortunately the night we visited it absolutely tipped down, so we did not get to enjoy the facilities or really see them, so can only refer you to other reviews. That said the staff are extremely friendly (Simon) and it is noted that they offer to take you home (and pick you up). You can enjoy their facilities if you... More
