Great people running this place. Very hospitable and I hope they survive for my return. Welcome was brilliant and respectable of all requirements more »
Beautiful clean beach! lots of activities to do. Bar on the beach with a variety of drinks and food. The sea can be a bit chilly but after a few minutes you forget. Perfect place to enjoy some sunshine for family or friends whatever your crowd might be.
Very popular tourist destination... largely visited by folks from the UK. Vibrant night life, excellent food choices. Beach is clean, recreation area is quite spread out. Good crowd and party mood throughout. A bit noisy on the main Street where all the activities converge...but worth a visit.
