We were made to feel very welcome, the staff were friendly and very sympathetic. Drinks at €3 was very reasonable and we received a good quality buffet style evening...

(Sorry for bad english) Clean room, good conditional air, clean towels every day, room service was very good. The pool was clean and large. Pretty expensive drinks at pool bar I think. The price for our room was pretty expensive too for the location. Nice staff with a small problem, I wanted some of our paid breakfast for one person...

I was a bit concerned as the reviews on Trip Advisor were not good but I think they are totally unjust. In our party there were 10 adults, 2 children and an infant and...
