Spent a week at the Eco Yurt Suite as the second week of a two week stay with two grand daughters age 7 and 8. First week was spent in Playa Blanca in a very nice apartment, just like numerous other nice apartments we have ever stayed in. My wife was somewhat sceptical about leaving our nice apartment and moving into a tent, I sensed this when she said "why are we leaving our nice apartment and moving into a tent" must be a gift I have.
So we made our move after the first week, any reservations my wife had were dispelled the moment we got to the yurt, we were soon greeted by Maria who had stocked our kitchen with essentials to welcome us, water, milk and wine and the gardener quickly saddled Molly, the resort donkey and took the grand children for a ride round the grounds. The Yurt is one of the most comfortable places I have ever stayed on a holiday, so much room, plenty for the children to do without constantly having to watch them, loads of places to just relax, patio, sunbeds, hammock or Polynesian day bed, even more sunbeds and a further day bed down by the pool, play area and trampoline to keep the children occupied.
By the time the week was up my wife declared that it was the first holiday ever where she didn't feel ready to go home. I couldn't fault it and would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially if you are taking children.
