I would certainly agree with the other reviews - it would be hard to imagine better all-round value. We particularly appreciate the un-fussy décor, the simplicity, the delicious, healthy cuisine, charming gardens, excellent beach, access to good snorkeling and the general friendliness of this resort. The theatre was not for us - but who needs it when there is so...

Hotel and food were excellent value for money. Lovely, welcoming and friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble and always with a smile. Rooms were kept very clean. The location was the best in the bay. Clean beach with plenty of room between sunbeds (unlike some other hotels) and adjacent sea was like swimming in an aqaurium. Perfect! Can't wait...

We last visited exactly 2 years ago and were really pleased to see familiar faces and the same great service and food.

I stayed at FA for 1 week in October specifically to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. We booked 1 year out and asked from the offset to book an upgraded room. Several e-mails followed all of which said I couldn't pre-book and would have to wait until I arrived. Following our booking the airport was changed form Birmingham to East...
