It's our second Easter Sunday at Costabella. We really enjoyed their celebration when we first attended it. For this year, they have Star Wars characters joining the celebration which was fun for me but not to my daughter. hehehe... As always, I like the place, room is clean, pool is not overly crowded, food is great!
