We booked for the stay for two nights get one free special and looked forward to a relaxing break having read such great reviews. On arrival, our family chalet was stale, grubby and claustrophobic. But we stayed positive until a boat load of drunk party goers arrive shouting their heads off. Horrible! Another "function" the following day. We found the staff far more intersted in catering for these people. We were unable to get even a slice of bread or a piece of fruit for our young daughter. Food was overpriced and unsuitable for families. Healthy, simple food was not available. The chef was uninterested and unhelpful. Could not wait to leave after one night.
