    As advised earlier in this survey, the childrens entertainment and programme were such fun - excellent especially for our grandchildren aged 7 and 6 years! Well done, keep it up. Also thoroughly all (including granny and grampa) thoroughly enjoyed the warm pool!

    Excellent value for money! Ideal family resort. All facilities were well- kept and in close proximity to chalet. Adequate activities to choose from. Your own fault if you don't enjoy this resort. Close to nature: caters for all ages.

    I'm afraid that I cannot answer your question, but there might be the information you are looking for on their website. Failing that, you could e-mail them. I got lots of information that way. Good luck!
