Stayed here for one night and wished we had stayed longer, the staff was wonderful. A easy check in and out. Short walk to the town with a good selection of shops and places to eat. Pool is on site but very crowded with children, bring a bathing cap as it is required. Rooms very clean and big in comparison...
