We've visited with friends and family here a few times over the years and also eaten in the main restaurant on numerous occasions. Not sure what's gone wrong this year but from being a decent and relaxing place to spend some time, as part of the 'entertainment' programme, the hotel now sounds more like a rock concert, intermittently blaring out...

I heavily researched my holiday because it was only myself and my 5 year old daughter. I'm glad I did as I had already enquired about the hotel instead of the bungalows - we were moved the second day to the hotel and it was like a different holiday. The hotel was 100% better than the bungalow. We had no...
