Cheaper Italian version of CLUB MED, happy vibe.

Great value place to stay. Sure it isnt a 5 star all bells and whistles hotel, but u get exactly what it says on the tin. Rooms are basic, but you don't spend much time in them anyway. They are spacious and functional and I would recommend one with a balcony so you can dry off your towel (u need to bring a pool/beach towel) at the day. There are no hidden extras when you check out, & they don't go out of their way to find extras to put on your bill either. I stayed with my 2 children (9 & 4 yrs old) and was the only Brit in the place, (thank heavens!!!). This was of huge fun to the Entertainment Chief who hosts the open air show everynight at 10pm, hauling us up onto the stage for fun poking and language games....all in jest & good spirit. I have a very basic understanding of French & Spanish and you get the gist of the entertainment as it is aimed at Kids aswell, so has to be easy to grasp..! The lunch & dinner buffet is a bit of a mild bun fight, I suggest arriving 10 mins after it starts and relaxing as there is plenty of food and they replenish platters both hot and cold very quickly. The pool is great and not used as much by the Italian guests, they seem to prefer the beach which is a 2 min walk down a path. We were more often by the pool, but the beach is there nevertheless if you like the morning or afternoon aqua gym classes and music to tap your feet to. Staff were amazing though not many english speakers. Car hire is available from reception, & highly recommended.
