The huge range of on-site facilities practically promises that any guest is kept happily occupied both day and night. You can spend one day lounging on the sun terrace with a chilled drink while the kids splash around in the children's pool. Then the next taking part in a range of activities hosted by the dedicated entertainment team, or having a family-trip to the beach.

Sample a different world of cuisine every night at the hotel restaurants. There are international menus, a la carte dining, afternoon teas, and fresh snacks, as well as themed buffets ranging from Latin, Italian and Mediterranean evenings.
