We stayed here for 2 weeks (mid april- end april) and we had an absolutely brilliant time. We found the holiday incredibly relaxing, lounging by the pool & beach with gorgeous weather and great views. Absolutely no problem getting a sun lounger around 10am everyday- there were always options available. The animation team were so friendly and never persisted when...
