The hotel is a short transfer from the airport which after an early start is such a bonus with irritable children. However you may have to wait to check in to your room. The hotel rooms are...

This is a fantastic hotel for kids, last year the food was superb, this year the food was not up to the same standard. Very dissapointed by the behavior of some of the guests, who were drunk and rowdy and nothing was done about it, don't know if I would go back again, which is a shame.

Spent a week here and would happily return. We came near to the end of season I think, so things were quieter than I'd expected entertainment wise but we still enjoyed it.
