    Fun activities and very friendly staff. The energym class with Marco is a great morning workout. It tones and stretches the whole body! The vacationers are mostly families with young children and pensioners.

    hi They have a supervised car park so the car will be safe. We really enjoyed having the car as there are some great places to visit. It's just too easy to stay in the resort.
