If you are a family with children who love swimming, splashing and sunshine, this is for you. The pools are superb; hotel staff friendly and helpful, the apartments spacious and pleasant, and the meals are amazing. Even my fussy teenagers loved the food. Who wouldn't? It's world-class. Exercursions into interesting villages and shopping centres are arranged by the Village at... More

We had a great week at the Holiday Village with loads for the kids to do. The room was big and clean with air conditioning. It had a fully equipped kitchen, which we didn't use as there was food in the restaurant to suit the whole family. The staff were always polite and helpful and the entertainment team work extremely... More

Just back from a week here and would like to start by saying this was a truly amazing holiday and I find it hard to understand the negative points made in some of the previous posts. We chose this family holiday because WE ARE a family! We didn't set off expecting peace and quiet, table service or champagne and caviar!... More

This hotel is generally both clean and modern and the staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed in block 1 on the top floor. The views were great! With 6 pools of varying sizes it never felt crowded and there were usually enough sun beds to go around. TIP: send someone out with towels to bag your sunbeds, they get... More

Only giving it a rating of 2 due to the awful food, we couldn't believe the food was so bad considering how much we had paid for the holiday.We have been on many all inclusive holidays and this was one of the worst for food.We complained to the Thomson rep about the food on a few occasions always the promise...

2nd stay in this lovely family hotel. Travelled as family of 5 for the first time so booked an interconnecting room and one bed apartment. Interconnecting room was small, but meant air con worked much quicker to cool the room! We hardly spent any time in room anyway. The one bed apartment was brilliant for the 3 year old-much more...
