A lovely experience with nothing lacking at all. Gave us an opportunity to relax away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life. Super comfortable, with good service and excellent meals together with a super beach that's not overcrowded and ideal for a great escape from city life.A highly recommended holiday venue.
