Excellent from start to finish Rooms amazing, we moved between all three over 2 weeks Beach stunning Staff very friendly, quiet and calming Room service were prepared to cook anything we requested Only issue was the occasional noisey child in the pool - we wished they were restricted to the family pool But otherwise - fabulous and we'll certainly return
