Poor service, over priced, disrespectful staff. The least family friendly experience in the 15 years we have been coming to Spain. Would not recommend for families even with quiet and well-behaved children like ours. Extremely disappointed.

We were there last week children were definitely welcome at both pool and restaurant. They are very busy now you may well need to book both pool and restaurant, though they do very good food at the poolside
