We didn't have children with us but from what we saw the team seem to keep them busy. If I was taking my grandson I don't think I would choose this particular hotel.

Near the hotel less than 10 minute walk is a plaza where they have open dancing every evening ,plenty of bars in that area. (Out of the hotel turn left then next right cross the road.Next left,then next right takes you to the plaza)From there you can take a short walk to get to the area above the beach.You can get an elevator to the beach.

"Sea view rooms but they are a lot extra"
"During out stay guests in wheelchairs seemed to get around the grounds fine and may prefer a lower ground floor room."
"Pay the extra for a pool view or end up looking at the road"
"Overlooking pool"
"We liked the back of the hotel better views"
