We got a good deal, but not sure I'd return. The children had a good time, but the lifeguard wouldn't allow any ball of any description in the pool, no inflatables, no jumping in etc which disappointed the kids. The food was of a good standard, with a large variety in the buffet

Is there parking
Bonjour, Parking de l'hôtel à 10 € et gratuit si vous êtes en all inclusive Premium. Sinon tout le long de la rue on trouve des places payantes de 10h à 21h ( ou 22h je ne me rappelle plus exactement) Et à environ 400 mètres il y a le parking de la supérette qui est gratuit. Cordialement

Sorry again got to add to Amelia B as it’s a total lie, I was there the last week of Aug and whole first wk of Sept 2018 and the Plush Beds(Bali bed) area was immaculate, check the Hotels FB page as they chose my photo of said area as one of the best of 2018, The beds are cleaned daily as are the Jaccuzis. What I will say is in the centre of the bed area are around 8 very tall palm trees and we noticed when we went back end of December that they had been pruned, so maybe she was unlucky and was there when that was done. But certainly not when she said.
