    Estamos barajando la posibilidad de ir de vacaciones con nuestros niños de 5 y 8 años a este hotel del 28 de mayo de 2017 al 8 de junio. Mi pregunta es: ¿en esas fechas cuentan con programas de entretenimiento para niños y animación por las noches para mayores (tipo espectáculos) todos los días? Pregunto porque he estado en un hotel de la misma cadena en Roquetas del Mar y no había salvo el fin de semana (siendo la animación prácticamente nula). Agradecería alguna respuesta. Muchas gracias
