Cannot fault this resort in any way, our stay was perfect from arrival to departure. Room was large and spotlessly clean. Food varied and excellent in buffet and a la carte restaurants. Mediterranean is a must. Also try the beach restaurant at lunch, service is great. If you are looking for a holiday with relaxation, lovely pool and beach areas...
