5 star resort, but this is reflected in the prices charged within the resort. We stayed in one of the golf villas, it was 2 bedrooms, ideal for the 3 of us Spotless and clean throughout, good cooking facility's which were needed because eating here is very expensive, the rate of the euro doesn't help at the moment. Good supermarket...

We'd heard positive reviews so booked this after a recommendation. After paying £4000 for a week for 2 adults, 1 child and a baby we expected real luxury. We were to be very letdown. Our townhouse was awful! Dirty, grubby, dark and more like a 3 star at best. I immediately asked to be moved and a lovely member of...

A first class location, hotel and amenities. The staff are first rate. We stayed in the newly opened Ocean Suites - stylish, comfortable and accessible to everything you need on and off site. Without the crowds of peak summer we felt privileged to enjoy all this at our own pace. I wish they would provide free internet.
