“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We recently spent a week in this resort and I must say it really lived up to our expectations. We were two families travelling with five children. The place really lends itself to children, they can roam around happily using, the pool, the games area, the play ground and there is also ample space for zooming around on scooters and riding bicycles.
The apartments were clean and the furniture was modern and comfortable.
The only flaw I can point out is the fact that there are not many dining options. There is only one restaurant or you can opt to buy groceries from the supermarket on location and cook at home. Needless to say whilst on vacation I had no intention of cooking. If you do not have transport finding a restaurant close by is a challenge.
Having said that I can only but recommend the resort and look forward to having the opportunity to visit again.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Location: bad - on the entrance road to the small shoretown Castellaneta Marina, nothing to see or do in a wide area.
Rooms: no 4stars, hardly 3: filthy upon arrival, airco in master bedroom broken, mold in showers, and a lot of ants (even in the cupboards in the kitchenette). Rooms that are not facing the pool, are facing (those on the first floor) the busy road.
After 2 days we moved to another room because of the infestation of ants (it was either that or check out...). This room was better maintained, but was situated next to the restaurant and other central facilities (disco until 1am!).
Restaurant: we booked the dinner plan prior to arrival, with choice between 2 starters and 2 main course. Very poor quality...
Pool: beautiful, large pool, but closes at 7pm. Open to day visitors, so very crowded during the weekend days.
Animation: only in Italian and very noisy (day and night).
Website promise relaxation and luxury, reality is noisy, crowded and poor quality.

a fascinating way to discover yourself
the place is truly magical ... the atmosphere is inviting ... the changing landscape in the color of the African sun and the breeze of our fragrant Mediterranean. The village looks like, very colorful in Arabic style, very nice lobby and the area devoted to the dinner overlooking the beautiful pool that evening lights of many colors with soft lighting and intense. The animation is really hilarious with themed shows .. but .. but never obtrusive even in the presence of the beach (apart from the Peter Pan Francis !!!). Not missing anything, everything is at hand, easily reachable in short .. it was really spoiled by the big kids ... Nothing is left to chance! The village is so beautiful and equipped that you have no desire to go hiking ... I recommend it to everyone but .. attentive to the effect "return cruise ...." Miss you much" A.N.
