“Just spent a lovely week there. Staff is great and friendly. The food was great, I mostly ate at the buffet, the variety was amazing. A lot of vegetables too! Was there with my three kids aged 9-12-13. The beach is amazing and not crowded at all. Amazing sunset’s! Our room was not very far from the main complex or the beach.” – Julien N. 3/20
