We stayed there 9th to 24th July 11 Overview Check in was busy as there were 85 people from our flight checking in. It went well. We had asked for the quiet pool area, but the accomodation was closed due to the resort being quiet. The pool area, bar and Italiian Restaurant were still open though. The resort location is...
