Very enjoyable holiday!
The all-inclusive option is good, it includes popular drinks sangria, cava, gin tonic etc. The food provided is good, there is good range of options in the salad bar, main course, and dessert. Their paella with squid is really nice! We joined some free activities in the hotel, such as french balls, darts etc. They are a lot more fun than they sound, because the staff is fantastic, they make the game very enjoyable! We enjoy our stay very much at papayas!
