We travelled with the in-laws, the wife's sister, her husband and their three children as well as our own two. For this type of grouping or for young families this hotel is superb. Plenty of 'animations' for the children. The pool is both large and suitably split to allow multi use; a shallow area for youngsters, deep end for the more adventurous, a more sedate area for those of a certain age, and of course plenty of space for aqua aerobics. If you opt for half board breakfast is both plentiful and varied. loads of fruit, choice of omelettes or other egg manifestations, cereals etc. You then opt for either lunch or dinner. We did dinner; there is a weekly menu so if you stay for longer than a single week you will see the same dishes. that said, I cannot agree with other reviewers who complained about the quality. We found the food to be excellent; many fish dishes, pasta with all sorts of twists, pizzas for the children, alternatives to their offered desserts....so no complaints there. The hotel offers local wines which are fantastic (not like the Tunisian stuff that could pickle Nelson)
We stayed in deluxe rooms; they were spacious and well appointed. The bathroom lotions were replaced as soon as we had emptied one. My only slight gripe here is that there were signs that the rooms had not been fully finished; a hole in the ceiling where a light should be etc.
The grounds are superb; they create an air of tropical garden and make the visitor feel that there are fewer rooms, apartments and villas than there actually are.
To access the beach you walk over a minor road and amble through a hundred yards or so of woodland. there is a lovely restaurant on the beach that serves wonderful lunches and the sea is magical.
Paestum Temples are an ancient stones throw away and very 'do-able'. if you have a car both Pompei and Herculaneum are just over an hours drive.
If you are looking for a romantic or sedate stay this is not for you!
