    A beautiful hotel in wonderfully landscaped grounds. Lots of beautiful birds and wildlife. Rooms are comfortable and very spacious. Very relaxing pool area with a very attentive young lady in the pool bar. Quite near to the village but bring a torch!

    We stayed with our two kids in (12 an 15) in a family suite with two large double beds. It was quite spacious so I Think you couldn't easily get two extra beds in the room. Best wishes. Peter.
