I loved my stay and definitely look forward to returning... great apartments, facilities, staff and food I have no complaints.. only downfall is the closest shop is a 20 to 30 minute walk which is OK if you don't mind long walks lol

This should be on your short list to visit. They have a massive pool, a great health club with an indoor heated pool and all the facilities. The bar is friendly and they have a happy hour for cocktails between 17:00 and 18:00 Cant be bad. High standard of maintenance and service.

Very nice clean resort with great facilities. The staff were very nice and very well trained. Breakfast was fresh and plenty to choose from, a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. I was here on business but would have no hesitation bringing all the family back.

You need a car but they do provide a limited courtesy bus down to the town centre. Rooms/Suites really well stocked and comfortable. Olympics were on so thanks for a great TV too. Lots of activities for the children in the pool.
