The family room was ample space for the 3 of us and the food (dinner on half board) especially a new barbecue menu every night was delicious. Did...

Our room was lovely, very spacious and kept immaculately clean by the housekeeping staff throughout our stay. We went half board, and really enjoyed the food. Although we were there for 11 nights, the evening buffet selection changed...

This place is awesome and it's awesomeness is because of Freda and her team. She made my stay like I was her personal guest and so did the rest of the staff. The beach is beautiful and the food delicious.
