Sadly didn't have time to make use of it but I'll definitely be back when I have more time. The beach in front of the hotel is a lovely golden sand beach with...

Me and my husband stayed there for 7 nights with half board service - breakfast and dinner. Just to be clear only the resort and facilities are 5 stars but I can't say the same about the rooms.
