Booking swimming was ridiculous as everyone was trying to change at the same time. Not enjoyable! 45 min session was not long enough!

The holiday had the potential to be very good but lacked some basic standards, such as cleanliness and customer service.

Unfortunately we booked because it was dog friendly but we found that the exercise facilities for our dog were inadequate. We did not avail ourselves of any of the facilities for entertainment so have not commented.

We would like to thank the staff for the efforts they made during the power outage that occurred whilst we were there.
