We were very happy with our one-week stay this past July, and especially the Mini Club and evening shows, which our 5-year-old daughter loved. Brand new resort with friendly, helpful, multilingual staff. Compact, which our daughter also loved because she could roam around by herself and not get lost or into trouble, and we also enjoyed since in some large resorts it can take 15 minutes or longer to go from the lobby to your room. Our room was on the small side but it was clean and modern and had everything we needed. We also liked the mix of nationalities (Austrian, German, Croatia, Slovenian, Italian and Russian) in contrast with other resorts where you can have one dominant nationality. It was easy for our daughter (Dutch speaking) to make friends with the other kids as they also had no common language. We were particularly impressed with the wide range of activities for children and the care and involvement of the staff. The food was OK, nothing special, but we took the half-board option and drove into town every day for lunch to experience more variety. On the downside, the nearby beaches are all rocky, but with a young child we prefer to stay at the pool anyway. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and may be back in July 2014! (Note: if you don't have kids, definitely give this place a miss. We didn't see anyone without children, and the majority of the entertainment options were for kids.)
