    My wife and I are over 60 and are considering the resort for a short summer break. My wife's son, his partner and two children (aged 5 and 1) would be accompanying us. As the resort is (as stated) for over 55's - with family members allowed to accompany would we need to book one bunglaow for us all or (as we would prefer) book two bungalows - one for us and one for the rest of the family?

    Hi, myself and my family have booked to stay in your resort from 18 - 25 December. I have read various comments about it being a resort for over 55's but I am 44 and have children aged 13 & 8. Will this be OK? Also we will be looking for somewhere for Christmas lunch on 25th December do you know if there will be any restaurants open? Many thanks Paul!
