the hotel is very nice, and with the excellent service it makes an excellent holiday resort.
Marvelous facilities for families- a swimming pool with great water slides for kids and adults, a pool with a "pirate ship" with smaller water slides for smaller kids, a playground right next to the swimming pool, a kids club.
the beach is very nice (though the waves were rather high when we were there).
the food and drinks are good.
If you want to eat at "the Tavern" at dinner (- a restaurant by the beach), at dinner ,instead of the regular dining room, (which is fine as well), you need to make reservations two days in advance.
At lunch however there is no need for reservations at the "tavern".
the service was great. we were 2 adults, one teenager and two kids. we made reservation for 2 rooms, however we were suggested a big suite instead of two rooms because the rooms were too far a part . the "Apollo suite" was great, with an exit to the beach. It did not have a bath tub (just a shower) but it didn't bother us too much.
Finally- We forgot a bag with some swimming goggles and swimming suits on our last day in the hotel.
the hotel were extremely nice and helpful, located the bag and sent us all of our stuff, by air mail, free of charge!
this was so nice that we suggested to pay them back and also felt that it gave a sweet taste to the end of this great vacation.
