Nice location if you want to shop, but a drive away to the beach. The staff were friendly, but the family room was a bit too basic. What is the point of having a fridge and microwave, but no eating implements? It was also somewhat strange that we could not sign for breakfast, but had to pay cash there and then! Might have been embarrassing if we had not had cash! No explanation was given as to why this was either. Also very awkward when we came back from the beach to find that there were no towels. When we asked we were told we had to wait 30 minutes and when we suggested other options I.e. they get towels from the pool or an empty room the housekeeping staff disappeared, never to be seen again! 4 people had to make do with a shower to clean sand off and one hand towel. Not satisfactory.
