Large lively establishment totally geared towards children and families and exclusive to a major UK tour operator who organises the entertainment and children's services themselves. Extensive facilities over a large beachfront site with room for the adults to escape in the lawned grounds under some shade. Huge food and beverage facilities with a fine choice of bars for those desperate for a drink after being surrounded by little monsters all day!
Access to the sandy beach is at the rear of the property and a short walk along the street to a few local shops. Would suit sociable types wanting a superb location in the resort, accepting the fact that relaxation may be to a minimum here! Little of interest in the resort so a good option is to hire a car to explore the local countryside and the major towns of the island.
Wide rectangular angular building on 7-storeys finished in plain white. Offset balconies are on all rooms and most face out to the sea.
