We stayed there for a week in July. The hotel itself looks amazing and the swimming pools are the best I have ever seen. The hotel is very much child-friendly, offering many activities to children of all ages. Breakfast and dinner were by far the best we ever had- variety was huge and the food was delicious. Location, though, could... More
