We Have just come Home from a week away as a family of 5 I would thoroughly recommend. Accommodations have fabulous views over the sea, all very clean with clean equipment. Very spacious. The children loved the games rooms that were available and staff are very friendly and accommodating. Very near to lovely restaurants and pubs and great ice cream shops. Had a dishwasher with dishwasher tablets and tea towels and washing up liquid. We will definitely be returning in the future
