    We stayed there for 2 nights with our 2 children. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was spacious. Breakfast was a treat and had a wide variety. Our children just loved the pool. We had a wonderful time.

    The pianist during all the meals played the most beautiful and soothing music, very talented as he hadn't any notes in front of him. Robert the gentleman. As for the stay, the best service breakfast buffet and wonderful restaurants, the best stay ever
