We stayed here from 20-25th April 2015 for my birthday, my sister had been here 3 years ago and said how lovely it was. A lot has changed since then. The villas still very lovely albeit a walk from the clubhouse. This is the first time I have ever been all inclusive too and won't be rushing to do that...

We went to this hotel on 20th to 24th April with secret escape, which we thought was a prestigious travel agent, unfortunately was very disappointed when we arrived. This is a villa with a tiny spa, 4 person tiny steam room, that I doubt it fits 4 but 2 persons. The indoor pool is so overheated as the jacuzzi fits...

This is not what we would class as a hotel in fact it is a villa complex and as they have been unable to sell most of them they are offering it as hotel accommodation. The accommodation is first class and all Villa accommodation with an upper level and stairs - there is no accommodation in the club house, which...

A beautiful complex with top quality accomodation. The villas are clean, modern, spacious and perfect for a group or family. The facilities are equally good and the staff are warm and friendly. We will definitely go back here!

We are just home from a beautiful week's stay here. The family suite was huge- a modern, clean and well-equipped villa set in lovely gardens with a balcony and the sea in the distance Its cleaned daily and the beds made, which I think is a nice touch. It is peaceful and the shutters keep out the sunlight until you're...

This is a great resort for peace and quiet in the sun and excellent value for money - we are here right now and can't fault it. Highly recommended, especially in low season at about £60 per night with breakfast. We have the cheapest option which is the deluxe suite and it's a 1000 sq. ft. house! The family suite...

let me start by saying I holiday very frequently, and can be quite critical of hotels which fail to make the grade. our week at this hotel was excellent value for money and a stress free break.
