We exchanged our timeshare into this resort. It's ok as a base with the nearest bars and restaurants being half a mile for two then the rest a minimum mile in either direction. Staff are ok, with the exception of the cleaning staff (which we can only assume there are some on this resort) our room was only cleaned twice...

This resort is good in many ways. Nice pools, green spaces, reasonable 9 hole golf course, rooms cleaned daily and friendly staff, but i'd advise against staying on half board, unless it is only for a couple of nights. It's not their speciality. We stayed for six nights and by the end of the stay the buffet food whilst well...

The staf are all very friendly and can't do enough for you.Food and drink prices were reasonable but you could get cheaper in the town which...

Beautiful village, quiet and great for families. Perfect spot, close to a lot of nice places to visit. Driving distance to a lot of beaches and tourists attractions. Would highly recommend to anyone, if you want to chill with your buddies or have a nice family holiday - you won't be disappointed with this one.

Played here on a recent visit. It's a mickey mouse course and is a bad pitch and putt course at best. €50 euro for golf, basic clubs and a trolley. Bring your own balls. €10 euro for 2 large beers. Crazy stuff. Nice enough setting but wouldn't be rushing back anytime soon.

Fun, challenging Par 3 course. €40 including push trolley for nine holes. The first hole is a bit daunting, tee off on hillock outside the clubhouse, get the ball over a small lake and onto the green - with maybe 30 spectators who all clap if you get over the lake. Then you settle down. Pleasant staff and friendly people...

Our second day (of 5) here and the complex and grounds are second to none, beautiful landscaping, many pools and other facilities I am yet to explore fully, but on day 2 I am suitably impressed. We have parking and the hotel is well located for touring the coast or staying local. The only 'almost' so far is the apartment....

This place have for sure been nice 10 years ago. Now it's running on fumes. Falling apart, and won't exist in 5 years. They are milking the final drops out of the establishment. Booked a room for two days. The room looked nice at first, except it was very cold. And had a smell like a used bath towel. When...
