Nice hotel, freindly staff. Good location. Nice places to eat locally . Breakfast okay unless your looking for a cooked british type of meal. We ate out in the evenings and found plenty of places to go.We stayed in main block which was fine but the bungalows looked better. The adult pool area was good and kept clean.
