This was our second visit to the hotel, we enjoyed it so much last year we returned again. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds, the staff are lovely even though they work really hard. There is a good choice of restaurants if you want a change from the buffet restaurants. The pools are well maintained and the beach is beautiful especially the chill out area. Hope to return in the not too distant future.
Great holiday but lots of seaweed which could have been cleaned on the beach. Spa charges were incorrectly added to bill at higher rate than agreed. Had no time to sort as reception was unhelpful and my transfer and tired family were waiting.
