We stayed as a group of 52 people. Consisting of 30 teenagers and 22 adults and kids. The resort is in a superb location but is run down now and in need of a complete renovation.

Enjoyed holiday from 21 to 31 September 2013 until the last day when we discovered money missing from our room. Reported to management and filled out a form.
