          We have booked to go in October half term and can not wait!!!! However, does anyone know how the reviews can be so different from guests?? It's like they've been on different holidays! Haha! Also, is block 9 the best one to request? Do they have sea/pool views? We are a family for 4 and can't wait for a total chill out holiday! Xx
