Just popped in for tapas and was happily surprised. The restaurant is very welcoming. The pool is massive! They were in the process of building cabins for overnight stays which I will be returning to use. They also have a huge bowels area, and a stables for riding. Would recommend a try.

“Use it as a bolt hole. You're in Spain! You got the weather and its not a prison camp, if you want to go out, do it! I believe there is evening entertainment, horse riding and for those who just can't let go of the "Little England" mentality, There's an all-weather bowling green.”
