Hi, travelled with husband and 5 year old son. Location great with pool just beside sea. Apartment was average but was a stinky smell from loo most of the time. No sweeping brush and didnt feel swept all the time we were there, no toaster and none leff for hire, off peak season!! Any way, we chose here as it was so close to the beach and for the kids club. We had no problem till our last day as we left the beach to collect our son when I saw him though the fence at the pool!! We went through the open gate to see our 5 year old in his pants with a pair of pink arm bands and a water gun in the pool with about 3-4 other kids. I did not give my permission for him to go to the pool!! We sat at the side shocked, the two minders were over the other side of the pool face painting! If they were doing that who was watching the children?? No adult supervising in the pool or watching the kids. We took him out and dried and dressed him. My husband went over to complain, they hadnt even noticed we had took him out of pool. They didnt get it, what we were annoyed about. He was not supposed to be in the pool. What if he removed the PINK armbands as he hates pink and drowned? What if he ran out on to the road? What if he was taken? We were so shocked and angry at the fact the minders were oblivious to these possiblities. Maybe we are over protective but he is only 5 and needs supervision to keep him safe. Beware if you are going here.
