We really enjoyed our holiday here, we had a great room with a stunning pool/ocean view. The pool area was great and the pool area with slides was a great hit with the kids. The pool bar food was yummy and the food in the hotel was yummy also but it didn't have as much choice or as big of...

Really nice hotel with a buffet style offering for meals. Very family orientated with an indoor pool if there is inclement weather Staff were very friendly and resort staff were always visible. Nice walk into the town if you don't mind walking otherwise there are buses.

Lovely staff. Great rooms . Lots of well organised kids activities . Loads to do and see . Clean and tidy . Can't fault anything except we had the worst weather they'd seen in 15 years . That's typical of my luck . Must return and hope for sunshine

This was our first family holiday abroad (Sept- October 2016). A family of 4 (including 2 grumpy teens that are hard to please) we got a good deal at the travel agents to stay here. We were in block 2, which seemed to be the quieter of the 2 blocks, and had an apartment facing the small pool. We spent...

We visited the holiday village in October 2015. It was our first family holiday abroad and had everything we needed. The children enjoyed the food every day, no complaints there! The only negative was that there was only a limited breakfast on the morning of our flight, due to the kitchen not officially being open. The children were not interested...

Writing this review 6months after we came back. Long and short of it is that my kids cried themselves to sleep when we came home because they had so much fun. 8 of us in total. Entertainment staff were out of this world. 2nd time visiting and very likely will go back

Not our usual choice of destination for a holiday, but we were travelling with children and grandchildren for a half term break and thought this would give all the children the chance to find their own interests and activities and all the adults to enjoy some time for themselves. After a certain amount of misgiving, It turned out to be...

We stayed here half term week in October. We upgraded the room and had a fabulous big balcony which over looked the pool. On arrival we were greeted with drinks and check in was quick and efficient. There is so much going on for the kids and adults throughout the day which is great entertainment. The first choice reps are...
