We stayed in one of the family rooms and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the pool and the staff were very friendly and keen to help. The pictures online do not do this place justice and it is phenomenal value for money.

The hosts went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and found the perfect balance between hospitality and privacy.
