Met all our needs with the facilities and the food was excellent quality. Always a choice for the fussy little ones too! On our late arrival we weren't by... More

Our new room overlooked the activities pool and was just lovely! They say All inclusive but only I would say part inclusive ... the bar for... More

Rooms were basic but had everything you needed, lovely views and cleaned daily. Evening entertainment was very based around children. Very hot but lovely pool to cool off in. Food wasn't varied much but all freshly cooked and very tasty. Staff are very friendly and helpful especially Katarina who advised us of where to go and what to see. Shuttle... More
