We went with our 12 year old son for six days over New Year and had a really good time. All the staff were fantastic. The food was great (if somewhat pricier than the cafes on the beach). We'd love to go back.

This was our third visit, last one in 2002. Since then we have travelled extensively so we're a little concerned going back in case it did not live up to our expectations. The whole ambience is one of peace and tranquillity. We had a garden villa with so much space and spotlessly clean, turn down service was a bonus. We...
