The only thing needed is to variate the breakfast menu. since the last time I was there last year the breakfast has been the same, I would advice to make new entries and variate weekly. besides that, all good.

We used the resort as a conference venue for a small team. It was a very positive experience: the staff is always friendly and helpful, the food at Club Naval was good, the gym and swimming pools are of a high standard.

This time they gave me a room on the beach, ground floor. As I opened my balcony door, the beach sand was a hop across the hedges. The waters... More
