Going back for 11 nights with my family (boy aged 7, daughter aged 5) this time between June 16th-27th as a week just flies!
Really looking forward to going there with this being our 3rd trip in the last 3 years.
Cant fault the place, always enough sun loungers around the pools or the joined on aqua park (which is outstanding for all age groups).
Food is really good in the restraunt, and there are plenty of snacks including chips & pizzas throughout the day and the kids (and adults alike can help themselves to unlimited amounts of ice-cream all day too!).
Plenty of drinks to choose from, and over the last year they`ve made it easier with some cocktails and kids drinks being self-serve so much quicker too.
Appartments can be seen to your right of the plane seconds before landing (can see the aqua park...especially the orange boomarang ride), therefore would advise to get a taxi there as Thomas Cook charge £100 for transfers for a family of 4 when it is literally only about 2 miles away max, (would be about 800m as the crow flies!).
You can watch the planes landing from the aqua park which is nice and they don`t fly in the nights as not to upset the turtles on the beaches with them being sacred!!!
In the nights we mostly enjoyed just chilling by having a few drinks from the bar and watching the kids play in the on-site park, quietly relaxing after a fun day.
If you want to watch the entertainment which is located at the main bar this is very good too!
All the best.....Greg, Llanelli, S.Wales
