Amazing location with private sandy beach and water sports. There were no upgrades the evening we arrived but We received a wonderful upgrade the next day. We opted for half-board (breakfast and dinner) inclusive option since we were traveling with the kids, and were very happy with both. One surprise was that we had to pay for water and tea at dinner after piling up lamb and steaks, felt a little cheap 😂. Overall a wonderful experience
