Lets start with the bad points.. We arrived with 3 kids at 11.30am Despite the fact the place had less that 50% occupancy, we were made to wait till 1pm to get a room. The all inclusive as is stated is factually incorrect as there is no such thing that is being offered at this resort. They have a a... More

We had a wonderful relaxing stay celebrating my hubbies 60th birthday if you do want to go out and about a car is essential. The beach is a 30mins walk down hill so a taxi back is a must. The accommodation is exceptional of a very high spec and the food and presentation very good would definitely go back.

We loved the accommodation in our villa which was clean and had everything you would need especially for families. But we had frayed towels and holes in our small bath robes and a blood-stained sheet was put on our bed! Breakfast was good but the evening meal was far below 5* standard especially with an al la carte menu which... More

Stayed here for a week in May with our nearly 2 year old. The accommodation is perfect for families as it's spacious and has a full kitchen with washer/ dryer. The pool area is lovely, makes it easy to relax while the children play together. Breakfast was a good spread but the rest of the meals were average. There are... More
