It was lovely and staff great. As older people we could have used a railing for getting in and out of at least one pool and a few more lights in the evenings for walking back and forth from restaurants to room.

Mycket vänligt och familjärt. Maten inte så bra, för lite färsk mat t ex fisk och grönsaker. Frukosten enkel om inte man köper till från menyn.
