The highlights were the hot pool, swim up bar and the game near the reception. Regarding the cabin we just have a few comments: - the lack of privacy between cabins (when we arrived the neighbouring guests were using out balcony and furniture. - it would be nice to have complimentary tea and coffee - there was a hair on the dishes in the kitchen!

We had a fantastic stay. Two adults and two infants. The pool is incredible and the toddler area perfect for our two year old. A swim up bar/cafe for a holiday treat and daily movies on the big screen. Playground and jumping pillows for the kids. A fantastic park!
