Stayed for 6 nights in June with my husband, baby daughter and mother in two rooms with garden views and a terrace. The rooms are well sized with a really good lovely terrace where you can eat and just relax. Everywhere in the resort is spotless and they have really gone to town on the gardens which are beautifully kept and really help to make it into a mini paradise. The pool is fantastic, clean, large and excellent for children and especially babies as there is a very gradual slope into the water at one side so you can happily sit and play. There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas so no worries about being able to get out of the gorgeous sun when you need to.
The children's club is very loud so if you do not want to hear the music in the evenings then ask for a garden room as opposed to a pool one. Many of the staff do not speak great English but then it is Italy and not the UK so I cannot really understand why people complain about that! Irrelevant of the level of English spoken the staff were fantastic, very helpful and welcoming and they tried to have a chat and if they were not able to communicate fully they went off to find someone who could.
There is not a huge amount of info available, one example being that we were not made aware of the buffet option for dinner or the fact that they offer a cooked breakfast until out penultimate day. However the food is delicious and the breakfast offered is varied and very generous.
One quite significant issue for us was the resort lighting at night. Some of the path globes were not working and so walking back to the room from the car park was quite dangerous as you could not see the floor at all and both my mother and I almost fell over as we tripped on uneven ground on separate occasions - not great at any time but especially not good when carrying a 9 month old baby.
Overall we had a lovely time; it was peaceful, friendly, charming and relaxing. We would definitely go back.
