We stayed a 5 minute walk from here and what a beautiful relaxing place to visit. Spotless beach and promenade, shops, restaurants and sand sculptures to beat anything I’ve seen before. Will return again next year.

The only Hotel in the village that does all inclusive is the Hotel Palia Las Palomas. Hope this helps.
