The location is very nice and the hotel is beautiful. But the big let down is the house keeping. The housekeeping is really a problem. For that price you would expect a much better service and bathroom amenities. For example there was no earbuds nor facial tissues and after

Hi There, Depending on how many days you intend and time of year you travel, kids could get really bored. There is a kids play room with supervision along with basic jungle gym available. Also, the small kids pool does form part of the large pool structure which does help us parents to supervise while we enjy and soak up the sun. Overall, it has basic facilities however after 2/3 days they could get bored (hence weather is important else they will get bored). Hope the above does help...
