          Hi! We are looking at this resort for our honeymoon, is it a suitable honeymoon destination? Also after reading some of the reviews before yours we were concerned about the prices of things at the hotel, for instance one couple said they paid €800 for 13 lunches and 4 bottles of wine, could this be true or did you find the cost of extra food/drink to be acceptable? We like the look of this place but there really isn't much information other than the reviews to be found online? Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and hopefully respond 😊 Kind regards Laura
