The airport transfer arranged with HolidayTaxis.com through Monarch site was easy, economic and very efficient. Once the luggage arrived, after nearly half an hour of wait, the journey to the resort took slightly over an hour. As we had arrived early we had to wait to get checked in which was done very efficiently. Although we were told by reception...

Having stayed in other similar resorts, including Pine Cliffs, Portugal, this is by far the best. What we loved during our September 2014 stay was the size of the resort, not too big that you have to walk a mile to get anywhere, but not too small that the facilities are limited, a great balance of both. We stayed in...
