Wonderful resort, room, environment and location. Fabulous relaxing time in the sun and enthusiastic, friendly and helpful staff. We could easily walk into the village where there is a great choice of restaurants, supermarkets, fast food outlets and shops.Gateway is not far and has an extensive range of shops and entertainment. great beach a two minutes walk away.
