Fab holiday- nice food, excellent service, lovely room and great facilities. Looking forward to coming back again next year for the sixth time!! Lift straight down to the beach is such a treat! Go for the half board option which you can purchase from the hotel desk as it's really value for money and top quality at a bargain price... More
